What do I need to do to ensure that I earn points or miles whenever I stay at your hotels?
To receive credit/points, be sure to provide your IHG® Rewards Club membership number when making a reservation and again upon checking in at the hotel.
What is the difference between a stay and a night?
A “night” is considered one night at any of our hotels. A “stay” can consist of any number of consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/check-out.
When is a night or stay considered qualifying?
A "stay" or "night" is qualified when paying qualifying room rates, which include most business and leisure rates.
What are qualifying room rates?
Qualifying room rates are applied when you book through IHG central reservation offices, IHG Web sites, travel agents or directly at the hotel. In North, South and Central America and the Caribbean, points may be awarded on locally negotiated rates if these rates are discounted less than 30%. In Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau) hotels and resorts, Qualifying Rates include all locally negotiated rates.
Can I earn points and miles at the same time?
Your IHG® Rewards Club account must reflect either a points or a mileage earning preference. However, you can switch from one to the other at any time by updating the preferences on your account. Occasionally, there are IHG® Rewards Club promotions that offer points only, so if you are a mileage earner you will earn points on these offers. This information will be clearly displayed in the promotion details.
How do I change my earning preference?
To change your earning preference please sign into your IHG® Rewards Club account, go to My Account and Preferences to select your choice of earning IHG® Rewards Club points OR airline miles.
Other than hotel stays, how else can I earn points?
In addition to staying at any IHG hotel, there are many other ways to earn IHG® Rewards Club Points including:
On all Eligible Charges charged to the member's room. Eligible charges, except at Kimpton® Hotels, include food and beverage, telephone, laundry, and in-room movies charged to the member’s room. Charges at restaurants not operated by the hotel may not be eligible for points. Hotels may choose to award points for other charges at their discretion.
For purchasing goods and services with our partners. View a complete list of our partners on our Partner page.
When using an IHG® Rewards Club credit card for everyday purchases.
You can also buy points! Use them for family travel, give them as a gift to other IHG® Rewards Club members or use them as business incentives.
I am not yet a member but I have been staying at your hotels for quite some time now. Can I earn points or miles for those stays?
IHG® Rewards Club points can not be retroactively credited for stays prior to enrollment.
How do I earn airline miles for a stay?
You can earn miles with our frequent flyer program partners by changing your earning preferences or by calling the IHG® Rewards Club Service Center.
Can I redeem my points for airline miles?
You may convert your IHG® Rewards Club points to miles/credit with participating frequent flyer programs. Conversions must be made in block increments for specified Frequency Alliances. To redeem your points for airline miles or credits, please call your nearest IHG® Rewards Club Service Center. The posting time of frequent flyer miles varies by airline and can take up to six weeks to post to your frequent flyer account.
Can I convert my airline miles to IHG® Rewards Club points?
No, we do not currently offer this option. However, you can convert IHG® Rewards Club points to miles with many of our airline partners.
When I convert points to airline miles, how long does it take until the miles are credited to my frequent flyer account?
The posting time of frequent flyer miles varies by airline and can take up to six weeks to post to your frequent flyer account.
When miles are transferred to a frequent flyer account, both accounts must be in the same name to avoid airline reject. This is for the member’s protection so that no unauthorized transfers may occur. Once transferred to an airline, they may not be returned to the members' IHG® Rewards Club account.
Can I earn points when I book on third-party sites?
Most rates booked through most third party web sites, complimentary hotel stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate are not eligible for points.
