Priority Club launches a summer campaign tomorrow for Double Points or Double Miles from June 1 through July 31, 2013.
Double points or miles begins with second stay at an InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn brands.
Double points begins with first stay at IHG’s two extended stay brands: Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites. These two brands normally earn only 5 points per dollar or 1 mile per dollar which is 50% of the other IHG brands, so this works out to be 10 points/$1 or 2 miles/$1 on first stay. This recurring promotion incentivizes members for a stay at Staybridge or Candlewood to kick off this summer offer by offering the same level of points you will earn with any other IHG brand. Then you are incentivized to stay at the other brands from your second stay onward for the rest of the promotion.
Registration is required for this 2x points/miles promotion in advance of your stays.
This offer is valid at IHG brand hotels worldwide.
Must be a Priority Club® Rewards member and must register member number in advance to participate in this promotion. Bonus points or miles will be awarded from the second qualifying stay between 1 June 2013 and 31 July 2013 unless otherwise stated in the Double Points/Double Miles Promotion Terms and Conditions. A stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out. A stay is qualified when paying qualifying rates, which include most business and leisure rates.
Earn 2x points until August 31 in Europe.
And if your summer plans include Europe, then you can earn double points for midweek stays June 17 – August 31, 2013 by registering for this Priority Club Reward Yourself offer. This offer is valid for bookings made by July 31 at participating hotels in western Europe. The list of countries and participating hotels can be seen in drop down menus on the promotion page.
Conclusion: Double points or miles is a standard recurring promotion from IHG Priority Club.
Bonus points are always nice on IHG stays, but it looks like the grand hotel bonus promotions of 2009-2011 have faded into loyalty memories.
