There should be an IHG promotion for everyone, given all of the promotions on offer right now. There’s a 4X points promotion, 6,000 bonus points for IHG One Rewards cardholders, and plenty of savings opportunities. Here’s a look at all of the current IHG promotions and how to take advantage of these to either save on a stay or to rack up points.

Earn Up to 4X Points Through August 31, 2022

IHG 4X points promotion banner

Between May 18 and August 31, 2022, IHG members can earn up to 4X points at participating IHG Hotels & Resorts, Mr and Mrs Smith properties, or participating Six Senses properties.

First, you’ll need to register for this promotion. Then, during the promotional period, you’ll earn 2X, 3X, or 4X bonus points based on how many nights you stay.

IHG 4X points promotion structure

  • Earn 2X points on nights 2-5.
  • Earn 3X points on nights 6-14.
  • Earn 4X points on nights 15+.

Note that these nights are cumulative. You don’t need to stay 15+ nights in a single stay. The bonuses are multiples of the base points you would be earning on your stay. That means if you would normally earn 1,000 points per night, you will earn 1,000 points on your first night, 2,000 points on nights 2 through 5, 3,000 points on nights 6 through 14, and 4,000 points on every night after 14.

IHG Cardholder Bonus

IHG One Rewards cardholders registered in the US will earn an additional 3,000 points after staying 3 nights during the promotional period, and another 3,000 points for their second 3 nights (so 6,000 points) in addition to the 2X bonus points on nights 2-5 and 3X points on night 6.

Eligible cards include:

  • IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card
  • IHG® Rewards Traveler Credit Card
  • IHG® Rewards Premier Business Credit Card
  • IHG Select Card

Terms and Conditions

  • Stays can be as little as 1 night but must be at least $30 per night to qualify.
