IHG Rewards is delivering an early Christmas present with all Elite members retaining their tier until 2023. That’s particularly handy as travel restrictions start being relaxed, and people get back to exploring the wider world.

This IHG promotions guide will be updated with the latest offers as they come out. For specials with purchasing IHG Rewards points, see our dedicated guide to ‘IHG Buy Points Promotions’.

Deal: IHG Rewards Elite status until 2023

Expiry: You’ll retain your tier until February 2023

There’s now more time to enjoy your IHG hotel status perks! Over the coming weeks, all IHG Rewards members will have their current tier extended until 28 February 2023. With many previously set to lapse on 31 December 2021, that’s a further 14 months of Elite benefits.

The extension covers all Gold Elite, Platinum Elite and Spire Elite travellers worldwide. It also includes members who achieved their IHG Rewards level by way of Virgin Australia Velocity Gold or Platinum status.

We’re working to make sure our members’ accounts are updated within the next few weeks. Whether you’re travelling now or plan to do so later, we’re committed to giving you the flexibility you need to travel with confidence. We can’t wait to welcome you soon to one of our more than 6,000 (and growing!) hotels and resorts around the world. Thank you for being an IHG Rewards member.

– Heather Balsley, IHG Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty and Partnerships, 3 November 2021

There’s no need to register for this status extension, as it applies to all members.

Is this a good deal?

IHG Rewards is certainly taking care of its members with this status extension offer. Travellers don’t even need to make a new hotel booking to trigger the deal.

As the chain’s members get back on the road, booking with IHG will now have an even stronger appeal. That’s because travellers know their Elite perks are secure. So whether it’s a staycation soon, or a long-awaited holiday later, there’s plenty to celebrate.
