Gold or Platinum Elite Status
IHG announces a promotion to achieve status faster.
Simply by signing up for this IHG One Rewards promotion and then staying at their hotels within 90 days of signing up, you get :
- Gold Elite status until December 2024 after 2 nights at the hotel
- Platinum Elite status until December 2024 after 5 nights at the hotel
For example, you would normally have to stay for 40 nights to achieve Platinum Elite status.
By the way, here are some of the benefits of this Platinum status, which include:
- 60% more IHG One Rewards points
- Late Departure
Update: **Promotion may be targeted to certain individuals only.
Of course, these nights must be paid for in cash, not points. If the system asks you to enter a code, use this one: 57159
If you still can’t register, go here instead to the English version of the promotion. The promotional code is not required.
Nights booked directly through the IHG website and costing at least $30 are eligible for this challenge.
The IHG (InterContinental Hotel Group) portfolio comprises 6,000 hotels and 17 brands worldwide including:
- Crowne Plaza
- Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express
- Staybridge Suites and Candlewood
Is it worth it?
If you have already planned stays at IHG hotels, yes!
You have until April 30, 2023 to apply for this status promotion.
Be sure to synchronize your registration and travel dates to optimize everything. At the same time, sign up for the 2,000 points for every 2 nights promotion to maximize even more.
