IHG extending free night certs by request. Hopefully they do better.

There have been data points reported on several blogs over the past few days of IHG extending free night certificate by six months for some customers. We have received similar reports from readers in comments here on the blog and in our Facebook group, but I’ve intentionally held off on publishing the tip in the hopes that IHG would instead come out with a uniform policy. They haven’t yet. If you are holding a certificate…

IHG reduces elite status qualifications, extends Ambassador membership

For IHG enthusiasts who missed the detail in yesterday’s post about coronavirus cancellation policy, note that IHG has reduced elite status qualification requirements for earning status in 2020.

(EXPIRED) 12% back on IHG stays via UPromise shopping

UPromise Shopping is currently offering 12% cash back on Holiday Inn Express stays. Note that while Upromise lists other IHG brands at 3%, it is likely that you could click through the link for Holiday Inn Express and score 12% back even if booking another brand. YMMV, but since the Upromise link takes you to a general IHG search engine, I’d expect you’ll earn 12% back on any IHG brand as long as you click…

Get IHG qualifying points from Chase transfer

IHG Rewards Club Spire Elite Status

There used to be a loophole for earning IHG status whereby one could transfer points from a bank to Virgin Atlantic miles and then transfer 1:1 from Virgin Atlantic to IHG and the points would count as “qualifying points” for the purposes of earning elite status. That stopped working last year. However, No Mas Coach reports that transfers from Chase Ultimate Rewards post as qualifying points. While that’s only really exciting if you’re somewhere close to elite status already…

Still makes me hopeful that there are others like it to be…
