IHG Priority Club Double Points or Double Miles May 14-Aug 31

There does not seem to be much promotion innovation going on at Priority Club. I guess the ability to combine promotions keeps the program from needing a great offer like last year’s free night after two stays nights which ran during the summer of 2009.

Double points or double miles starts with your second qualifying stay, except for the IHG extended stay hotel brands of Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites where the offer begins with your first stay. This is an IHG worldwide offer available at all 4,400+ hotels in the InterContinental Hotels Group chain

Registration is now open for this offer.

InterContinental Hotels Group brands are Crowne Plaza, InterContinental Hotels, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Hotel Indigo, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites.

IHG Points Earning Structure:

Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Hotel Indigo earn 10 points per $1 hotel spend. Promotion bonus is additional 10 points per $1 for 20 points per $1. Elite bonuses are additional.

Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites earn 5 points/$1 regularly, so double points promotion earning rate is 10 points/$1.

InterContinental Hotels regularly earn 2,000 points per stay. The promotion rate is 4,000 points per stay.

Double Miles is applicable to many airline programs

Double miles earning rate is dependent on the airline partner and hotel brand. Check the airline miles earning page for details of regular miles rate and double that for the promotion rate. Priority Club has a large number of airline partners with around 45, second only to Hilton HHonors I believe.

USA Residents Only have a Special Gift Card Alternative Offer shown in the promotion terms fine print at PriorityClub.com/hititbig, however, the link is currently broken and does not reveal the details of this offer.

Loyalty Traveler promotion rank = 3-keys (and waiting to see the gift card offer details)

  1. Thanks for the correction.

    I should have remembered that since I earned a free night with a single two-night Holiday Inn stay.

    My mind was really focused on taxes yesterday.

  2. Stayed in two or more. Can’t regester to get double points. Old man getting frustrated.
