Promotion Discussion Thread 2018

This is the thread for all discussions related to discussion about promotion which might run by IHG apart from the regular (quartely / general) promotions.

Major Promotions might get its own thread, smaller promotion limited to certain regions or hotels are added in this thread. There is also a Wiki with links to promotion master thread (The Wiki does not necessarily have to be maintained by the moderator )

Most of you with a certain number of posts and member of flyertalk for a longer time can add these promotions to the wikipost aboive themself. If you are do not yet have the possibility or do not know how to add them, post them here and alert us via the report button (red triangle with !) and one of the moderators in this forum will add them.

If you have any question to the promotions, post it here and we are sure, you will get an answer.


Thank you

Nice if you need it I suppose, for me it would be far better to have a points buyback scheme with a bonus!

Somehow that offer is not bad after all, looking at the massive devaluations of Hilton for example where your today's point value is halved tomorrow. At least the IHG devaluations have been more reasonable given how easy it has been to earn points from promos.

Earning them isn’t an issue, but when faced with a choice for redemption between Hilton where I don’t pay for a breakfast and IHG where I get charged, I go with Hilton.

As a Spire Ambassador at IHG and Diamond at Hilton, Hilton seem much better at giving room upgrades.

I recently booked a 5 night redemption In Sofia, it was 120,00 Hilton Pojnts to get me a King room, from which I would get exec lounge access and an upgrade.
if I booked the Holiday Inn I can only book a 2 x single room and I imagine there would be no exec lounge and a daily charge charge for breakfast.
I suspect a room upgrade would also be unlikely to get me any decent room.


its a pity there isn’t a viable way to transfer from one scheme to the other.

I think you may be referring to the Book Direct promotion (released around 20-Feb, but for stays beginning 12-Mar).

www.ihg.com/content/gb/en/deals/member-offers/book-direct

Complete three stays with us from 12 March to 31 December, and earn 40,000 bonus points. That’s enough for a free night!

Register : 1,000 points
1st stay : 5,000 points
2nd stay : 9,000 points
3rd stay : 15,000 points
Upon Completion : 10,000 points

Be on your way to greater rewards with up to 71,000 bonus points.

Register : 1,000 points
1st stay : 10,000 points
2 more stays : 30,000 points

Total : 41,000 points

Bonus for every Intercontinental stay : 10,000 points (so max 3 x 10,000 = 30,000)

Total : 71,000 points
