A new year and a new IHG promotion. Answers to some Frequently Asked Questions below:


For newcomers to IHG promotions, note that Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn (including Holiday Inn Resorts) are two different brand categories for these things. If your dashboard says 'stay at a Holiday Inn Express' as one of the tasks and you stay at a Holiday Inn, it will NOT credit for the Holiday Inn Express task. (and vice versa)

For a task that says 'Stay X number of times at a Holiday Inn Express' (or Holiday Inn, Intercontinental, etc.) each stay must be at a different property for it to fully credit rather than staying at the same property multiple times.

An award stay only counts toward a task that specifically requires an award stay and will not count toward other tasks and night requirements for the purposes of the promotion. (Award stays do count toward general elite qualification, but that's outside this promotion)

'Redeem points' award nights only count for the 'redeem points' task and no other tasks. (example- an award night does not count toward 'Stay X number of nights')

At IHG, points + cash stays are simply points stays where you bought some of the points at the time of the reservation. Once you finish the reservation, a points + cash stay shows as a points stay. Thus points + cash stays only count for tasks where they are specified, and not other tasks.

Doing a points + cash booking and then cancelling it does NOT trigger a 'buy points' task completion. A 'buy points' task is a points transaction that is processed through points.com

The 'pay with your IHG credit card' task has typically been very slow to post. If it does within about two weeks of completing a stay, that's relatively quick, and it will often be several weeks beyond that, depending on when your statement closing date is and how IHG's system sweep is timed.

Some offers require booking within the promotion period in addition to staying during the promotion period.

Just want to point out a difference in this promo:

1, In China, the same promo will be running between 15th Jan to 30th Apr.
2, In IHG's English version (US version), this promo is running between 15th Jan to 15th Apr. Ending 15 days before China.

I have no idea why the difference at present. No doubt once the registration is open we should know more. I am quoting the Chinese version for those who are interested to see using google translate.

2019 年 1 月 15 日至 2019 年 4 月 30 日期间,作为 IHG®Rewards Club 优悦会成员,入住全球 5500 多家 IHG 旗下酒店中的任意一家,即有机会赚取至少 40,000 奖励积分。即刻注册“奖励住宿”特别活动,赚取丰厚积分,轻松兑享全球住宿。注册截止日为 2019 年 3 月 15 日。

Please find me the promo that begins January 1st, as I have 6 nights to start out the year.

Hmm, interesting - do you reckon this is for accounts for China residents or for stays in China? I'm UK-based, but planning some stays in China in Q1, so would be good to find out if there's a separate promotion I need to register for before I book...

I am a bit bummed by this too, same situation with some stays before 15th January. Thinking of shifting my business over to Hilton for this quarter.

I have a funny feeling that it is for Chinese residents only. However, stay tuned, as it could be a typo by US based IT, or it could be extended like the current (or past) double points promo by 15th April. I suggest you to wait until the registration is complete before making any plans. It is not worthy to take chances.

Good news for you, once I registered, the terms and condition all said the end date is 30th April. So it was a typo before the website is alive.

If you're UK based, try this:

https://www.ihg.com/content/gb/en/offers/multibrand2019

I couldn't register either with the link above but I changed us to gb in the link and then I could register fine and it shows me offers now.
