Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) is offering new customers 2,000 FREE IHG points for signing up for an IHG Rewards Club account. IHG Rewards Club is the loyalty program affiliated with IHG hotels which includes brands like Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and more. This promotion expires on December 7th, 2014.
I advised that as part of Points & Miles 101 you should signup for all the major airline and hotel programs loyalty accounts so if you haven’t already signed up for an IHG account, this is the best time to signup since it is somewhat rare to see bonus points offered for creating an IHG account. With hotel redemption starting at 5,000 points (via PointsBreaks), simply signing up for IHG under this promotion gets you 40% of the points necessary for a free room. This is easily worth the minute or two it takes to signup for this account.
