Do I need to Enroll? Yes, go here to Enroll
Yes you do…and it’s only valid on new memberships, or those who have signed up in the last 30 days. You’ll see a form similar to what you see below.
One of the questions I get asked a lot on TikTok is what is IHG and where are they? You’ve probably stayed at IHG and may not even know it. That’s why this promo could be super valuable to you – it’ll help you build rewards at properties you’re already staying at but not enrolled in their loyalty program. IHG’s umbrella is massive
Could I stay at a budget hotel and redeem at a Luxury property?
100% – let’s say you want to go to Atlanta and see a Braves game. You could book one of your stays at the Holiday Inn Express for $110. If you do that again during the promo period, you’d earn your free night up to 40k points. I’ll give you an example further down.
How quickly will the free night populate?
2 to 6 weeks after completing your second stay
Can my partner and I both do this?
Sure, why not? As long as you both are new IHG Rewards members or opened In the last 30 days, you could both participate in the promo
What are some cool ways to use the 40k free night?
I mean…we love luxury over here at Monkey Miles and IHG has a very cool partnership with…
Mr and Mrs Smith
You can find the entire directory here. One property that looks uber cool on the historic California Highway 1 is the Cambria Beach House. It’s very close to San Simeon where the Hearst Mansion is located, and would be a great spot to stay if you’re taking that iconic drive up the California coast. Keep in mind that pricing is dynamic, but I found a ton of dates under 40k in off-peak or shoulder season. Oct – March where the weather is still super nice, but it’s away from peak beach season. Personally, this is my favorite time to travel when crowds are less and typically you still get great sightseeing/hike/touristy weather. High 50s to 70s/80s
Valentine’s on the beach
I looked at a bunch of dates between Oct 2021 and March 2022 and loads below 40k – keep in mind you wouldn’t get the free night for 2 to 6 weeks ( although it may populate quicker ).
I stayed at the Intercontinental Times Square a few years back…it’s sub 40k on V-Day as well
The hotel is ideally located for taking in Broadway shows and hopping on the subway
The Platinum status we have from the Chase IHG Rewards Premier got us an upgrade to a nice corner room with plenty of light.
Or Perhaps you’d like to go to Tulum and check out the new Kimpton there
One of the most requested destinations I get on TikTok is Tulum… this could help offset a fun weekend getaway.
