IHG Rewards Fast Track to Elite Status returns – Stay 2 nights get Gold, 5 nights get Platinum

IHG Rewards has brought back their fast track offer to elite status that we saw during the last half of 2020. The offer makes it very easy to obtain status in the recently rebranded IHG Rewards program! It is perfect for those who don’t have status in the program as it takes very few nights to reach elite with this promotion. The main difference between this 2021 version of the offer from 2020 is that there is now a 90 day time limit for completing the required nights whereas in 2020 you had until the date the promotion ended which was December 31. So in this case you’ll want to time your registration for the offer correctly so that you can make sure you can complete the 2 or 5 nights within those 90 days. And that brings us to the elite status you get. After you register if you complete 2 nights within those 90 days you’ll be granted IHG Rewards Gold Status. Complete 5 nights and Platinum Status is yours. By comparison if you don’t register it would take a COVID-19 adjusted level of 7 nights to earn Gold Status or 30 nights to reach Platinum. As you can see it doesn’t take a lot of nights to earn status with this offer!

Also be sure to register for IHG’s current 2,000 bonus points for every 2 nights offer if you plan on completing stays this month!

If you do take advantage of this offer and earn the status don’t forget to then match it to other hotel chains like Best Western who offer a Status Match with No Catch.
