Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information and offers.
If you are an IHG One Rewards member, check your email to see if you’ve received a new and exclusive offer. The offers appear highly targeted, as most TPG staffers I checked with (myself included) did not receive one. There also seem to be multiple versions of the offer, according to LoyaltyLobby’s reporting.
So, check your email inbox to see if you’re targeted. Two TPG staffers with IHG One Rewards elite status received an email Thursday with the subject line “Invite only: Pre-register to earn up to 20K points.”
These two TPG staffers can register for this offer to earn 10,000 IHG points — worth about $50 based on TPG’s valuations — after staying four nights between Sept. 1 and Oct. 10. If they stay eight nights during this period, they will earn a total of 20,000 points.
However, as noted above, other targeted offers may have different delivery dates or subject lines. If you got the targeted email for 10,000 points after four nights, you can use this link to register on IHG’s website. But you’ll note the offer page states:
Many offers are only available to IHG One Rewards members who receive a specific, targeted communication from IHG. Successful registration does not guarantee that you will receive the points or miles offered when the offer requirements are met if you are not eligible per the offer terms and conditions.
So, I don’t recommend trying to register if you didn’t get the email for this promotion. After all, IHG has been known to revoke enrollment when members register for promotions for which they aren’t targeted.
Both TPG staffers targeted for this exclusive offer are InterContinental Ambassador members. Both staffers also noted they recently signed up for a new IHG One Rewards credit card. These could be coincidences.
However, even if you only stay with IHG One Rewards occasionally, it may be worth having the IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card or IHG One Rewards Premier Business Credit Card. Both cards offer automatic IHG One Rewards Platinum Elite status, a night worth up to 40,000 points on each account anniversary and access to the valuable fourth-night-reward perk.
