On Friday, I wrote about how I booked a hotel and was able to purchase bonus points that count towards status.
Well, one of our readers made us aware that IHG announced you can now get the option even when choosing the lowest possible rate, something that they didn’t use to let you do. This is useful because many times it would not be worth it to pay for the highest rate in order to get the bonus miles option. All that has changed with an email that IHG sent out this weekend:
You may just feel this way the next time you book with us.
Because now you can get a Bonus Points Package with the lowest available rate, Your Rate.
This way, you’ll earn an extra 1,000 bonus points per night while also knowing you got the best deal possible, without having to wander around the internet looking for it – and that has to feel good.
Also, these are Elite Qualifying Points that will help you reach your next status which unlocks more membership benefits. Even better right?
It’s an IHG® Rewards Club Member benefit and it’s only available on ihg.com*.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Bottom line: you can now get the lowest rate AND bonus miles. Thanks so much to our reader for pointing this out!
