If you plan to stay at IHG hotels in the new year, you’ll be happy to know that IHG One Rewards is offering a lucrative bonus points promotion in January 2024. With this sweet rewards deal, IHG One Rewards members can earn double bonus points on stays between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31.

And as a bonus, to really kick off the new year, IHG One Rewards members living in the United States who register for this promotion will automatically be enrolled in an additional promotion offer. Members will receive an additional 2,000 bonus points after staying at two or more IHG brands throughout the month of January.

You must register for this promotion before checking out from your first stay; here’s what you need to know.

IHG One Rewards January 2024 promotion details

This IHG One Rewards promotion is relatively straightforward: All registered members will earn double bonus points for stays between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31. If you register for the promotion and reside in the U.S., you will automatically be registered for the “2K Brand Offer.” For this promotion, members will earn an additional 2,000 bonus points when completing stays at two or more IHG brands within the promotional period. The additional 2,000 bonus points will only be awarded one time.

Once you register, you’ll get a confirmation email titled “You are now registered for 2X points on every stay.”

Remember, members must register for this promotion before completing their stay — which we recommend doing now so you don’t forget. The terms and conditions for this promotion define an eligible stay as “one (1) night stay at a participating hotel booked under a Qualifying Rate, with total spend exceeding US $30 (or local currency equivalent) for each night.”

If you book your stay using free night certificates, with IHG One Rewards points (including a combination of points and cash) or through a third-party booking agency such as or, these will not qualify under the promotion’s guidelines. The bonus also only applies to one room, so even if you book (and pay for) multiple rooms on a single night, you’ll only earn bonus points on one of them.

Unfortunately, unlike IHG’s last promotion, there’s no added benefit for those with IHG credit cards, including the IHG One Rewards Premier Credit Card, IHG One Rewards Traveler Credit Card and IHG One  Rewards Premier Business Credit Card. However, you can still earn bonus points by swiping these cards at participating properties.

Bottom line

IHG’s newest promotion allows you to earn a good amount of bonus points in 2024; however, the promotional period is only for the month of January, which is definitely limiting for those who don’t have flexible travel schedules. But if you can stay at an IHG hotel, combining this promotion with bonuses from elite status and an IHG credit card is a great way to earn IHG points on paid stays. IHG members earn 10 base points per dollar spent at most IHG brands, and IHG elite members get bonus points based on their status tier.

We recommend registering now, even if you don’t have any upcoming IHG stays planned.
