IHG® Rewards Club Teams with Mastercard® to Award Members with Priceless Experiences

Just in time for holiday travel, new promotion allows IHG Rewards Club members to receive entry into weekly sweepstakes to earn various prizes and unique experiences

IHG® Rewards Club, the loyalty program for InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has partnered with Mastercard® to bring its members the excitement of the unexpected through its Priceless Experiences promotion.

With every qualifying night at an IHG hotel between Dec. 1, 2016 and Feb. 15, 2017, IHG Rewards Club members who have registered and are a Mastercard® cardholder will receive automatic entry into the Priceless Experiences sweepstakes. Each week, two winners will have the option to choose from a list of various prizes and eight winners will be awarded 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points.

Members will also earn up to a $100 Mastercard® Reward Card following their second qualifying stay at an IHG hotel during the Priceless Experiences promotion period. To be eligible to receive a Mastercard® Reward Card, one of the two stays must be a two-night minimum. Mastercard® Reward Card values are determined by the brand of the IHG hotel where the member stays.

Liz Crisafi, Head of Loyalty and Partnerships, The Americas at IHG, said: “We strive to provide offers that are real, relevant and personal, and Priceless Experiences helps our members make the most out of their travel this holiday season. With all of the added benefits we’re offering to recognize our most loyal members, traveling with us has never been more rewarding.”

In addition to a Mastercard® Reward Card, five grand prize winners and their guests will receive a trip to Chicago including a three-night stay at the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile and a $600 Prepaid Mastercard®. The winners will also get to enjoy some of the best of what Priceless Chicago has to offer, including a VIP helicopter tour of the city, spa treatment, wine tasting at one of Chicago’s finest tasting rooms and unique culinary experience with celebrity chef, Graham Elliot.
