Back in July, I wrote about how you can Get a $25 Gift Card From Priority Club Rewards.
The deal was simply this – I’d gotten an email from Priority Club Rewards, the loyalty website for IHG hotels, including Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Indigo and Intercontinental offering a $25 gift card for every hotel booking through December 31, 2012. The email said:
GET A GIFT WHEN
BOOK AT OUR SITES. GET A $25 GIFT.
Experience the many advantages of booking directly on our websites and receive a $25 gift card with every reservation now through December 31st, 2012.* Get our Best Price Guarantee, no booking fees, and much more when you book with us.
I signed up for the promo and forgot about it. Well, guess what? I’ve had two recent stays at IHG hotels. In October, I stayed at a Holiday Inn in Elk Grove Village, Illinois (for the Frequent Flyers Chicago Seminar) and, in December, I stayed at a Crowne Plaza in Memphis (for the Memphis Marathon). A few weeks after the Holiday Inn stay, I got an envelope from Priority Club offering me my choice of $25 Gift Cards. At first, I was baffled – what was this? Then I remembered (vaguely) a promo I’d signed up for. I got another mailing from Priority Club after the second stay.

The back of the letter lists the many merchant gift cards available – from Movie Theatres, to Department stores such as Macy’s, Sears or Target, to Restaurants such as TGI Fridays, Outback or Ruth’s Chris Steak. Online redemption appears easy.
So, the promo actually worked! What a pleasant surprise. I checked the link and the promo (code 9983) still works! So, if you have any IHG stays coming up before the end of the year, I’d suggest signing up. There are a ton of other IHG promos which the Frugal Travel Lawyer posted back in September. I’m not sure which are expired and which are good, but, if you have an upcoming stay, it’s worth it to try them out.
