IHG Rewards Club Fast Track Offer for Gold and Platinum Status (only 2 or 5 nights respectively)

IHG Rewards Club came out with a new fast track to elite status offer last week that makes it very easy to obtain status in the program! This is perfect for those who don’t have status in the program (those who do have had it extended due to COVID-19) as it takes very few nights to reach elite with this promotion. The main determining factor for this promotion for most people who don’t have essential travel is if you are willing to travel and stay at a hotel on a discretionary basis. Even if you don’t have travel planned right now you should register for this offer since it is valid to the end of the year and we all know how fast plans can change. By registering you then only have to complete 2 nights to earn Gold Elite Status (compare this to the current COVID-19 adjusted level of 7 nights) or complete 5 nights to earn Platinum Status (compare this to the current COVID-19 adjusted level of 30 nights). As you can see it doesn’t take a lot of nights to earn status with this offer!

If you do take advantage of this offer and earn the status don’t forget to then match it to other hotel chains like Best Western who offer a Status Match with No Catch.

Offer details:
Fast Track to Gold or Platinum Elite Status when you stay at IHG Hotels Worldwide. Receive Gold status with only 2 nights or Platinum status with only 5 nights. Full details, online registration & booking (Registration is required)  Until Dec 31, 20

If you are a US resident don’t forget to register for the following offer as well that you can stack with the Elite Fast Track offer:

  1. It seems to be not so easy. I spent two nights at their hotels but they are reluctant to give me a Gold status saying I should have booked a corporate rate instead of the best flexible rate. Did anyone face such an approach?

    • Hi Andy – you should direct them to the terms and conditions and mention this bolded part:
      “stay at any participating IHG hotel within 90 days after registration, use a valid email address, and must book his or her stay using the corresponding IHG corporate rate code through an Eligible Company corporate booking tool or book direct at ihg.com with an Average Daily Rate of more than $35 or the equivalent in local currency.
