IHG is marking the 10th anniversary of IHG Army Hotels, a collection of hotels located on 40 U.S. military installations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, by launching a promotion that can earn the service member in your life a ton of points.
Here’s what you need to know.
To enter, follow @IHGArmyHotels on Instagram, post a photo and caption of the member of the military recognizing them for their service, tag @IHGArmyHotels, and include the hashtags #sweepstakes, #ihgah10, and #hospitalityforheroes. You can also enter by emailing a photo and caption directly to IHGAHSweepstakes@ihg.com. IHG says active duty, retired military or veterans are eligible to participate. Make sure your Instagram is public so IHG can see entries.
IHG says it will select five winners to win 200,000 IHG Rewards Club points once the sweepstakes ends on Nov. 15. According to TPG’s most recent valuations, 200,000 IHG points are worth $1,000.
If you aren’t one of the five servicemen selected, there are other ways to earn IHG Rewards Club points. The IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card offers an 80,000 point welcome bonus after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first three months from account opening. In addition, you’ll earn complimentary Platinum elite status, a fourth night free on reward stays, 25X points on IHG purchases during the first year and more. It has an annual fee of $89.
