There is a targeted offer circling around that gifts 90 days of top tier IHG Spire Elite status for 90 days + if you meet all the stay requirements during your 90 day trial you can extend the status. The link to the offer, at least on my browser, is quickly skipping to terms and conditions. However, you’ll see this page, just stop the page load and I was able to give it a go. Looks like most people aren’t getting matched, but who knows…YMMV. H/T DOC
I carry Platinum Elite status ( a benefit of the IHG Credit card ) and have been treated very well on my limited Holiday Inn/Express, Crown Plaza stays. My parents carry Spire, and the only big difference I’ve encountered when traveling with them is that they’ve gotten a Suite upgrade at the Crowne Plaza Changi, and I did not. However, I did get club access at the Crowne Plaza LAX. To me…I’ve received more value in maintaining IHG’s paid status “Ambassador” than most anything else in the program.
