IHG has now extended the validity of select free night certificates

At the beginning of the month, IHG Rewards sent out emails to its members to let them know that the expiration dates of some free night certificates would be extended and if my account is anything to go by, it looks like those expiration extensions have now been processed.

Odd: Are IHG free night certificates a little better than I thought?

I have an IHG free night certificate that's expiring at the end of the year and as I was performing a few random searches to see what I could and couldn't book with it last night, I stumbled across something that I'm pretty sure I've never seen before - the free night certificates can sometimes be more useful than points.

How to combine an IHG credit card & an IHG points sale for great...

IHG Rewards runs frequent points sales and the sales in which a 100% bonus is offered can offer an easy path to good savings. If, however, you combine a good points sale with a key benefit offered by the IHG Rewards Premier credit card or the IHG Rewards Traveler credit card, the savings can be fantastic.

IHG will extend more statuses & expiration dates of select free night certificates

Almost a week after the news quietly first appeared on its website, IHG Rewards has now started sending out emails to members to let them know that their elite status will be extended through February 2023. The emails also contain further good news so we now also know that select free night certificates will have their expiration dates extended and that two other IHG elite status programs will be extending select elite statuses.

Forget better benefits, IHG thinks customers want more ways to use their points

Accenture recently published a mini-interview with the CEO of IHG Hotels & Resorts, Keith Barr, and while most of the short video doesn't directly relate to the miles and points world, a 40-second segment within it gives us a brief insight into what IHG thinks it needs to do to keep customers engaged with its loyalty program.

New Sale: Buy 500,000 IHG Rewards Points At 0.5 Cents Each

IHG has launched a new flash sale (of sorts) in which it’s offering customers the opportunity to buy up to 500,000 points at a cost of just 0.5 cents per point. Despite the fact that IHG surprised members with an unpleasant devaluation earlier this year, this sale can still offer incredible value (as I show in this post).

IHG Rewards extends elite statuses through January 2023

It was the last week of April 2020 when IHG announced that it would offer elite status extensions through January 2022 and now that Hilton (in September) and Marriott (yesterday) have both announced that members of their loyalty programs will continue to enjoy their elite statuses into 2023, IHG has followed suit.

So far, we've seen Hilton Honors, Marriott Bonvoy, and Radisson Rewards all unveil promotions that will cover most of what remains of this year, and now it's the turn of IHG Rewards to try to tempt those of us who are able and happy to travel to choose its properties over those of its competitors.

IHG Rewards: How To Deal With The Problem Child Of Loyalty Programs

Earlier this month, IHG pushed through another unpleasant devaluation to its IHG Rewards program and, all in all, it was a very IHG devaluation - it was bad, no notice was given, nothing was communicated to members once the devaluation had happened, and the people in charge of implementing the devaluation messed up it up so badly that even the IT guys over at British Airways were left laughing. Still, now that the dust has settled a little, it's time to take a proper look at how to view IHG Rewards as part of a broader miles & points strategy.
