Quick Thoughts

This offer might be targeted, so check your emails to see if you’ve been invited. You might still be able to register for the promotion using the link above even if you don’t receive an email. IHG appear to be doing some A/B testing with the email subject lines, as my invitation said “Stephen, reservations just got more rewarding”, while my wife’s said “Shae, here’s another reason to try the IHG app.”

3,000 bonus points for making a reservation using the IHG app is an OK bonus, but you’d need to take into account the cashback you’d be passing up. For a cheap hotel stay of one night, booking via the IHG app for the 3,000 points might make sense. Cashback rates are currently as high as 9% though, so booking through a portal would likely give a better return for more expensive stays.

It’s definitely worth keeping an eye out for the bonus point packages too, especially if you’re making a last minute reservation. I’ve seen 5,000 bonus point packages for as little as $10-$15 extra in the past, so earning an additional 2,000 bonus points for booking one of those packages (as well as the 3,000 bonus for using the IHG app) could be worthwhile.

Don’t forget that there are a couple of other IHG promotions running right now – the Accelerate promotion and a 10,000 point offer for staying at the Kimpton brand – which can stack with this offer.

Just got a 5000+5000 bonus offer for Kimpton, my favorite horse in the IHG corral.


I already have a paid 5000 bonus points stay booked thru the IHG app for next week. I just now registered for this extra bonus promotion. Do I need to rebook this reservation to get this extra bonus?

Do you think I can earn this bonus, if I want to redeem the point for the hotel stay.?
