IHG promotions: Bonus points, reward discounts and more

One of the most satisfying ways to earn hotel points is to leverage lucrative hotel promotions. Luckily, you can earn bonus points through several IHG promotions this summer.

Some IHG One Rewards promotions are targeted, so your offer details may occasionally differ from mine. But here’s a closer look at the current IHG promotions you might want to utilize.

Targeted offer for bonus points on stays

IHG members can earn bonus points every time they stay a set number of nights between June 20 and Aug. 31. This offer is targeted, so your offer may be for a different number of nights or bonus points. For example, my offer is for 8,000 points every four nights.


Reward nights and points-and-cash stays aren’t eligible for this promotion. For your stay to qualify, you’ll need to spend more than $30 each night and book a qualifying rate (as defined by the IHG One Rewards terms and conditions).

Check the IHG offers page to see whether you’re targeted for this offer. You must register for this promotion before completing your first stay.

15% off reward nights at new hotels and resorts

One IHG promotion that isn’t targeted is a discount on award nights at new IHG hotels and resorts for stays through Aug. 31.


The eligible new hotels and resorts are listed on IHG’s website. You don’t have to do anything specific to get the discount; sign in to your account and redeem IHG points for a stay at one of the new hotels.


You can’t stack this discount with the fourth-reward-night-free perk offered as a benefit of the IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card, IHG One Rewards Premier Business Credit Card and IHG One Rewards Traveler Credit Card. Cardholders can only get the 15% discount on stays of three nights or fewer at new hotels and resorts.

Bonus points on car rentals

When you book a Hertz car rental through the IHG Trip Extras portal, you’ll enjoy special rates and bonus IHG points. Specifically, you’ll earn 1,500 IHG points per rental plus 500 points per day if you’re an elite member and 125 points per day if you don’t have IHG elite status.

If you book a Dollar or Thrifty car rental through the IHG Trip Extras portal, you’ll get everyday savings and 125 IHG points per day for your rental.

Bonus points for attending a timeshare presentation

If you want a discounted stay and don’t mind attending a timeshare presentation, you can earn 10,000 IHG points while getting a three-night hotel stay for $199 or a three-night resort stay for $249. This offer is valid for stays in:

  • Arizona: Scottsdale
  • Florida: Orlando and Cocoa Beach
  • Tennessee: Gatlinburg
  • Missouri: Branson
  • Nevada: Las Vegas
  • South Carolina: Myrtle Beach
  • Texas: Galveston
  • Virginia: Williamsburg

All of the destinations offer the hotel stay option. But only Orlando, Las Vegas, Branson, Galveston and Williamsburg offer the option to stay on-site at a Holiday Inn Club Vacations resort. You’ll need to meet employment, income and other requirements to purchase one of these packages, so check the requirements on the offer page.

If you buy a package, you must attend a one- to two-hour timeshare presentation. These presentations can be intense and are designed to get travelers to say yes to buying a timeshare. Even if you don’t mind attending a timeshare presentation, know that accepting this offer may exclude you from accepting better offers in the future.

Bottom line

It’s worth checking hotel promotions periodically. Current promotions, such as the targeted 8,000 bonus points for every four nights stayed offer I have in my IHG account, can offer value on upcoming trips for no additional cost.

Go ahead and register for your targeted bonus points promotion now. There’s no harm in registering and not using the promotion, but registering now also ensures you don’t forget to register later.
