Free Platinum Elite Status for 120 days

Deal Link:
Expiry:
July 31, 2022
Retailer:
IHG Hotels & Resorts
If you are a member with Accor, Best Western, Choice, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Radisson or Wyndham (all free to join) you can get automatic IHG One Rewards Platinum status to try out for 120 days. Then if you complete 5 nights within 120 days of registering you can keep that status until December 2023 and if you complete 10 additional nights (15 total) within that same 120 days you will get their higher Diamond Elite Status Level until the end of 2023.

This is perfect for those travelling this summer and know they will have stays at Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, etc to get some extra perks.

IHG One Rewards Platinum Status provides some simple extras like 60% bonus points, upgrades subject to availability, welcome amenity, early check in/late check out

More details can be found here as well:

Also wanted to add: Don't forget that you can also earn up to 4x points on all IHG stays until August 31! Just make sure you register for the offer before you complete your stay(s)

Weird, I just registered using the Best Western register link and it just made me a Club member.

How/when is the status upgraded?

Same here. Also, when does it start? As soon as your register?

Yes, so wait until the last minute (or until you have stays coming up) unless you think they will pull the promo early.

Excellent news! I used to be a loyal Kimpton guy (when in the US) but didn't stick around after the IHG buyout. I may have to dip my toes in and see how it feels after a few years, now that Kimpton has gone international.

According to IHG's terms and conditions:

"Once a member registers for the Promotion, the member will automatically be upgraded to IHG One Rewards Platinum Elite status and can start enjoying the associated benefits."

It might be that it won't show up in your account until the next day as sometimes they don't do updates until overnight.

No need to prove it as they are offering the Platinum status to any member who registers.

any worthwhile perks if staying at a basic holiday inn express? not sure what a welcome amenity is or the odds of getting late check out are.

I've got 14 days booked for a Wyndham resort already, would I have to rebook for this to count?
