IHG Rewards
is the next hotel program to extend
elite status another year. All elite members will automatically have
their status extended to February 2023. There is no word yet on whether
they will extend points expiry so if you don’t hold elite status with
IHG points are set to start expiring as of December 31, 2021. Click here to learn more.

Hotels. com Rewards
also announced an extension in
their program. Now Stamps and Reward Nights won’t expire until June 30,
22. The program typically requires one completed stay every 12 months so
if you fall into that category where you may lose some stamps or reward
nights by next June at least you have some time to plan a stay over the
next 8 months. Learn more here.
