IHG Rewards continues to make strides to help confirm that they will continue to be my favourite hotel chain. IHG Rewards that they will not be increasing the number of points required for an award night. The reverse has happened, they are actually reducing by 5,000 points for an award night for 101 different hotels worldwide. The changes go into effect on April 15, 2014.
Fellow blogger Loyaltylobby has put together a great list. Below are the two Canadian hotels that were affected:
- Holiday Inn Express & Suites Airdrie-Calgary North – Drops from 30,000 to 25,000
- Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Kamloops – Drops from 25,000 to 20,000
Our IHG Rewards points have become that much more valuable. You can jump start your IHG Rewards account with the 60,000 sign up bonus on the Capital One IHG Rewards Club World MasterCard. You can also read more about the IHG rewards program here.
