Earn 2016 free nights with Christmas holiday hotel stays

Many Americans will book hotel nights over the next two weeks for holiday travel.

IHG Rewards Club includes Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn hotels, two of the most prevalent hotel brands in the USA with nearly 3,000 hotels. Holiday Inn Express is one of the country’s major Interstate Highway exit hotel brands.

Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites are apartment style rooms suitable for family travel. These extended stay hotels are often filled with business travelers most weeks, but during the last two weeks of December these hotel brands tend to have lower occupancy and lower rates.

Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and InterContinental Hotels are the higher priced hotels, yet some of the lowest rates of the year can be found around the Christmas holidays at many of these upscale and luxury hotels.

With a deal this good, families have incentive to book two rooms under each parent’s account for extra hotel space and more free nights earned.

In an October article on this deal, I showed how two people can alternate room nights to earn credit in two accounts without changing hotels, if you find yourself needing a hotel for four nights.

Loyalty Traveler – Earn 2 free nights after 4 stays by Dec 31, 2015 as new IHG Rewards Club member

Since this is an offer for new hotel loyalty program members, please feel free to ask newbie questions. This is not hyperbole when I say this is probably the most valuable hotel loyalty promotion of 2015. You still have two weeks to earn IHG free nights if you are new to IHG Rewards Club.

IC Boston night

I redeemed two IHG free night certificates for InterContinental Boston in July, 2015. I earned two free night certificates for $235 in December 2014 and the room rates at IC Boston were $400 per night.

  1. As a new IHG member, I’ve qualified for a free night based on this promo. Now how do I claim it? Must I call IHG for the reservation or can I book it on line?

  2. When I am logged into my account, I see a “Free Night Status” tab on the left side of the page between “My Offer Status” and “Upcoming Reservations” tabs. You should see available free nights on that page.

    I think I booked my reward nights online, but I also know that I had to go through IHG phone reservations on my wife’s account since she had two free nights and there was no “Free Night Tab” showing on her account page.
