1. Earn Spire Elite
Not all IHG® Rewards Club points are created equal. Some count only toward earning rewards and some count toward earning rewards plus elite status.
Each single night during a qualified stay is considered elite qualifying. Reward nights are also elite qualifying and if you were Platinum Elite or Spire Elite previously, any excess elite qualifying nights will roll over into the new year.
With IHG® Rewards Club there are many ways to earn points. They all count toward rewards, however some count for elite status as well.
