IHG are currently running a boosted bonus on their FREE IHG Rewards Club Mastercard. Until the 30th March you will get 20,000 IHG points for spending £500 in your first 3 months. Normally you will only get 10,000 for spending £500 so this is an excellent offer (and matches the £99 IHG Rewards Club Premium Mastercard sign up bonus.)
What are 20,000 IHG points worth?
You should be able to get around £80 worth of value from the points when redeeming for IHG stays.
Whilst 20,000 IHG points won’t go far in central London you can stay at Heathrow in the Holiday Inn Express London Heathrow T4 for 20,000 (many other airport hotels around the country too including London Gatwick, Manchester & Birmingham airport.) Or cities such as Manchester and Birmingham have options at 20,000 points
Alternatively, you can exchange your IHG points for Avios points. 20,000 IHG Points will get you 4,000 Avios worth around £40 or 1 single economy seat from London to Zone 1 destinations in Europe which include Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen & Paris for 4000 points (off peak)
