Earning targets for 2021

Gold Elite - 7,500 qualifying points or 7 nights

Platinum Elite requires 30,000 qualifying points or 30 nights

Spire Elite requires 55,000 qualifying or 55 nights

These are the same, lowered. targets as for 2020


2020 Qualifying Nights will rollover to 2021

Any 2020 qualifying nights will roll over into 2021

NOTE - both will take a little while to be reflected in accounts.

Lower Elite Qualification for 2021

Is it confirmed that IHG will keep the same elite qualification as last year? My tracker says 55k points or 55 night for Spire again.

Who kmows!

My app has the lower 2020 targets (so 55 nights / 55k spend for spire) but the website has the normal 75 nights / k !

People on head for points blog have reported that both the app and website are showing the lower targets whereas other like me report a mismatch.

Hopefully it will be come consistant soon!

Same here. I know when they first changed the requirements last year, it took a while to flow through on both.

IHG IT, I wouldn't count on things being updated yet. It could turn out the App is showing last years target (for 2021 qualification) or the website is off showing the normal and not lowered target for 2022 qualification. Patience is a key ingredient with IHG. Same as we have had patience for the last few years since Spire introduction to see those amazing (tangible) benefits they promised initially - still waiting of course .

Check: 2021 Route to Elite-status.

There you will see the lower amount.

Not seeing any fast-track or reduced requirements for 2021 so far... I'm getting started on my 2021 stats right now...

The website shows one thing (the normal requirements), the app shows another (the reduced requriements announced for 2020)

Was just ina web chat with IHG re another issue and asked about the mismatch. Agent checked my account and replied with this

Thank you for waiting, Upon checking, you need 55,000 qualifying points or 55 qualifying nights to maintain Spire Status.


She said she'd raise the mismatch between app and web so hopefully they'll sort it out soon
