Intercontinental Hotel Group recently followed the lead of other hotel chains and instituted an expiration on Priority Club points.
Do IHG® Rewards Club Points expire?
To reward our guests who choose to stay with us more often, we focus more programme benefits toward members who earn and redeem on a regular basis. All points will expire after 12 months if there’s no account activity. But it’s easy to maintain your points balance. Just earn or redeem once a year through any of our IHG hotels or partners.
Here’s an easy way to extend your Priority Club points expiration for less than $1. You can simply do one entry into the contest below as first reported by fellow BoardingArea blogger – Deals We Like. The contest will allow you up to 94 entries – however if you don’t want to spend the time, 1 simple entry will help extend your expiration another year.
Here’s how to enter the contest:
Register for the promotion here.
On a 3 * 5 postcard or piece of paper hand write the following information:
Your Full Name
Complete Mailing Address
Day Phone Number
Evening Phone Number (I simply wrote my number once and wrote Day + Evening next to it)
First 6 Digits of any Mastercard
Date of Birth
On the envelope, the rules state that you can’t use an automated system to participate. However, I wasn’t about to hand write 94 envelopes, so I went ahead and just printed my return address and the address for the contest directly on the envelope with a laser ptiner, and it has worked for every entry. It will be up to you whether you wish to hand write or computer generate.
Address your envelope to:
IHG and MasterCard® Priceless Surprises® Promotion
c/o HelloWorld, Inc.
P.O. Box 5996
Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5996
Make sure and send every entry into a separate envelope. I put in 94 entries for myself, and 1 entry for my wife and 3 kids. Entries must be postmarked by February 15, 2016.
