IHG One Rewards: Free Platinum Status for 120 Days, Extended until December 2023 After 5 Nights, Diamond After 15 Nights

Intercontintal Warsaw Entrance

IHG One Rewards, the loyalty program of IHG (InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, …) is currently running a promotion that gifts you the Platinum status and makes it substantially easier for you to reach a Diamond status, which includes free breakfast. After signing up for the promotion, you’d directly get the Platinum Status for 120 days. After 5 nights, you’ll get to keep that status until December 2023. And after 15 nights, you’ll even get the Diamond status.

You can register for this promotion until July 31, 2022. Each night has to have been booked directly through IHG and cost at least US$30 (~€28). Once you’ve reached your status threshold, it’ll be valid until December 2023.

This promotion is officially structured as a status match. However, you don’t really have to hold a status at a different hotel chain – being a member is enough. So if you haven’t already, simply sign up at any other hotel chain, and you’re good to go for this promotion. IHG doesn’t even seem to check if you really are a member of another program.

Platinum Elite Benefits

As a Platinum Elite member, you would get these advantages:

  • 60% bonus points
  • Complimentary room upgrades
  • Early check-in
  • Welcome gift (points or snack/drink)

Diamond Elite Benefits

As a Diamond Elite member, you would get these advantages:

  • 100% bonus points
  • Complimentary room upgrades
  • Early check-in and late check-out
  • Free breakfast or welcome gift (points or snack/drink)


IHG has recently revamped its loyalty program. Even if the Platinum Elite status only offers very vague and limited benefits, the Diamond Elite status has become far more interesting as it now includes free breakfast. Reaching that status after only 15 nights instead of 70 is a great deal, even if you only have 120 days to do so.

If you’re going to spend some time at an IHG hotel this summer, there’s literally no downside to signing up for this promotion. However, don’t forget to book your stay directly through IHG’s website:
