Earn Extra IHG Points For Staying At A Kimpton Hotel

by joeheg

Check your email because both Sharon and I received a message from IHG that offered 10,000 bonus Rewards Club points for our next Kimpton stay. The email also reminded us that the offer can stack on top of the current Accelerate promotion (you’ve already signed up for that one, I hope).


IHG just merged Kimpton hotels into the Rewards Club program earlier this year so this is apparently a push to get IHG Rewards Club members to look into booking Kimpton hotels. 10,000 Rewards Club points isn’t much towards a high end IHG hotel but it could get you a free night at many of the current PointBreaks hotels. The ability to stack this with the current Accelerate promotion might make it worthwhile to look at the prices of Kimpton hotels if you’re traveling where they are located. 

For example, I can earn 30,000 IHG points for staying one night at an IHG property and paying with my IHG credit card and purchasing some IHG points. If that one night stay would be at a Kimpton, I’d be earning 40,000 bonus points plus any points for the stay. That’s enough for a free night at most IHG hotels.

Keep in mind that this promotion may be targeted to those who received the email. Since we’d both already registered for the Accelerate promotion, I’m not sure if that made any difference for both of us getting the offer. The date of this promotion runs concurrent with the Accelerate offers with both of them ending on April 30, 2018.

Unfortunately, Kimpton hotels aren’t everywhere. However in the cities where they have hotels, they often have more than one.

Here are the full terms and conditions of the offer:
