The latest addition to the long list of winter/spring hotel promotions is from InterContinental Hotels Group.
Between February 1 and April 30, Priority Club Rewards members can earn 3,000 bonus points for every third qualifying night, up to a maximum of 30,000 points.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
If you won’t be logging at least three nights at an InterContinental family hotel (InterContinental, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites) during the promotion period, this offer is moot.
If you do stay three nights, the 3,000-point bonus amounts to an extra 1,000 points per night.
In the context of the different earning rates associated with the different brands, here’s how the bonus computes:
- At InterContinental hotels, Priority Club members normally earn 2,000 points per stay, so the 3,000 extra points would equate to a 150 percent bonus on a three-night stay.
- At Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, and Holiday Inn Express hotels, program members normally earn 10 points per $1 in charges. Assuming $100 per night in charges, a three-night stay would net 3,000 points, and the extra points would amount to a 100 percent bonus.
- And for stays at Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites, which normally net five points per $1, the bonus would be 200 percent on a three-night stay.
Bottom line: If points are your earning preference, this promotion delivers a solid bonus. And the ability to earn the bonus multiple times is a plus for frequent travelers.
