IHG One Rewards Fast Track to Elite Status
IHG One Rewards has launched a fast track to Elite status promotion. Members can reach Elite status faster, before the end of the year, so they can enjoy Elite benefits into 2023.
To earn Platinum Elite status through December 2023, members must register and stay 5 qualifying nights prior to December 31, 2022. If a member only has a few nights to give, there is also an opportunity to earn Gold Elite status through December 2023 in just 2 qualifying nights if completed by December 31, 2022.
Members can register to participate beginning October 3, 2022 through December 31, 2022. Once registered, members who complete five qualifying night stays at any IHG Hotels & Resorts property within the promotion period will receive a Platinum Elite status upgrade, and members who complete two qualifying night stays will receive a Gold Elite status upgrade.
- To participate in the “Fast Track to Elite Status” promotion (“Promotion”), an individual must be an IHG One Rewards member and must register for the Promotion under their member number. The Promotion period begins on October 3, 2022 and ends on December 31, 2022 (“Promotion Period”).
- Once a member registers for the Promotion, the member will be able earn IHG One Rewards Platinum Elite status, and start enjoying the associated benefits, by staying just five (5) qualifying nights at participating IHG® Hotels & Resorts during the Promotion Period. The member will first be able to earn Gold Elite status (through December 23, 2023) by completing two (2) qualifying nights within the Promotion Period. The member will then be able to reach Platinum Elite status (through December 31, 2023) by staying another three (3) qualifying nights during the Promotion Period.
- To be a qualifying night under the Promotion, the room night must be part of a Promotion Eligible Qualifying Stay and must fall within the Promotion Period. Room nights prior to registration or outside of the Promotion Period are not included. By way of example, a member who registers for the Promotion on October 4, 2022 and has a Promotion Eligible Qualifying Stay at a participating hotel with a check-in date of October 1, 2022 and check-out date of October 6, 2022 will be credited with two (2) qualifying nights, for October 4thand 5th. The member will not receive credit for October 1st or 2nd because those nights were prior to the Promotion Period, and no credit will be given for October 3rd because that night was before the member registered for the Promotion. However, with the two (2) qualifying nights credited, the member will earn Gold Elite status under the Promotion, and the two nights will also be applied toward the five (5) qualifying nights needed to earn Platinum Elite status.
- “Promotion Eligible Qualifying Stays” are a minimum one (1) night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with a room rate exceeding US $30 for each night. Stays booked using Rewards Nights or Points & Cash are not Promotion Eligible Qualifying Stays for purposes of this Promotion. Bookings made through on-line travel agencies or other reservation sites such as booking.com or expedia.com also do not qualify under this Promotion. For additional details on Qualifying Rates, please see the full IHG One Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions. If more than one member checks into the same room, only one member is eligible to count the room nights towards the Promotion (for those nights that qualify). If a member books more than one room on the same night, the member will only receive credit for qualifying nights for one room.
If you often stay at IHG properties, this promotion should be worthwhile. Also check out this ongoing promotion to earn more points for your stays.
