Editor’s note: This post has been updated with the latest IHG promotion. It was most recently published on 24 October 2019.

IHG Rewards just launched a new promotion, offering up to 4x bonus points for stays with the hotel program from 15 February to 15 May 2020. Members must register before booking and book by 15 April 2020 to qualify for this offer.

In an effort to encourage members to book incremental stays with IHG, this promotion is set up as a progressive offer. After registering, members will earn:

  • 1,000 bonus points for the first night
  • 2x bonus points for the second through fifth nights
  • 3x bonus points for the sixth through 14th nights
  • 4x bonus points for the 15th night and beyond

There are some important terms and conditions to keep in mind. For a stay to qualify for this promotion, the “total spend” for the stay must be at least $30. Also, you can’t check out and check back in to the same hotel to earn another stay as a stay is defined as “one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out.”

There are a number of types of bookings that don’t qualify for this promotion — including:

net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG’s sole discretion.

Register for the promotion here.

Unfortunately, the multiplier will only be on the base earnings from the stay. IHG Rewards elites — who earn up to 100% bonus points — will not have their elite bonuses multiplied.

Per the terms and conditions, the maximum number of points that you can earn from the promotion is 301,000 points.
