  • Upon Registration (as defined below), members will be given the opportunity to match a competitor’s hotel loyalty program status.
  • You must register for the promotion between June 17, 2019 – June 30, 2019.
  • By clicking “Match My Status” you are registering for the promotion and agreeing to receive IHG Rewards Club marketing communications and the terms and conditions of the promotion and Privacy Statement.
  • Members will be awarded a status match after completing the requirements of submitting their first name, last name, email address, IHG Rewards Club member number, hotel loyalty program you want us to match, your status with that program, and an attachment showing proof of status.
  • In order to maintain the status IHG Rewards Club grants you beyond 90 days, you must have two (2) Qualifying nights to maintain Gold Elite, five (5) Qualifying nights to maintain Platinum Elite, and ten (10) Qualifying nights to maintain Spire Elite, in which you will maintain this status through December 31, 2020.

  1. Interesting that you say it’s not available to current Spire Elites. I just logged in to IHG and there is a clickable hyperlink underneath my status that says “Maintain Status” and it tells me to stay 10 nights this year. This is my first year with Spire Elite so IDK if this is normal?

    Maintain Elite Status
    You are currently an IHG® Rewards Club Elite member. To maintain your Elite status, either stay at least 10 qualifying nights with us or earn 10,000 qualifying points, within this calendar year. Discover all your earning options as a member, and refer to the FAQ for more information about program details.
