IHG Rewards Club “Big Win” Promotion Returning

While the website for the promotion isn’t yet live, IHG Rewards Club will be bringing back the “Big Win” promotion in 2014, which they debuted this year. Here’s the information I have so far:

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is kicking off 2014 in a big way by offering loyal IHG® Rewards Club members more opportunities to earn free travel through the next installment of its hotel rewards promotion, “The Big Win.” This is a first of its kind promotion, which provides each loyal guest with an individually tailored set of offers.

“We have found that introducing tailored offers through “The Big Win” has been beneficial for both our guests and our hotels,” said Jim Sprigg, director, Database Marketing & CRM Solutions, IHG. “So, this January, we are launching a new and improved version of ”The Big Win” promotion based on guest feedback, with offers that are even more relevant and appealing to diverse types of guests who are loyal to the IHG family of hotel brands, including select offers with a greater focus on our individual hotel brands.”

Pre-registration for “The Big Win” promotion begins on Dec. 16, 2013 here. Once registered, members will begin earning IHG® Rewards Club points or airline miles when they stay at any IHG®-branded hotel between Jan. 1 and April 30, 2014. This includes the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo® Hotels, Holiday Inn® Hotels, Holiday Inn Resort® Hotels, Holiday Inn Club Vacations®, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels, Staybridge Suites® Hotels and Candlewood Suites® Hotels brands. IHG’s scale and diversity means that our hotels can meet our guests’ needs whatever the occasion – whether an overnight getaway, a business trip, a family celebration or an once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Sprigg added, “Other hotel promotions still tend to be one-size-fits-all, whereas every offer in “The Big Win” promotion varies based on a guest’s travel pattern.”

How it works:

  • Current IHG® Rewards Club members and new members can register for the “Big Win” hotel rewards promotion here.
  • Receive custom offers to win points or miles such as: stay more and earn morestay on the weekend to win or explore our brands
  • Stay  to start “winning”
  • Track your offers and rewards via a customized Rewards Tracker here.

Can’t wait to see what the offers are with this promotion! I’ll post again when registration opens and more details are announced.


  1. I smell another devaluation happening. They might be going big on the promotions and then devaluing all the points, seems like a good strategy for them right? 😉

  2. Well, I certainly hope my offer is better than the 2013 one, which is a pathetic joke that I am completely disregarding.

  3. I assume that next year will be much harder for me than this year. I basically got 175,000 points with four matress runs in my local area for around $325. I will be using some points in Munich in February and then possibly an IC in San Francisco in May. The Munich stay I was trying to keep down the costs of the trip to a bare minium (maybe not the best use of points) but I should get more value out of the stays at the IC in May.
