The 1,000 bonus points will be added to members’ accounts shortly after their stay has been completed.

“With this special Priority Club Rewards offer, we’re thanking our guests booking online 1,000 times over for their business, as well as encouraging others who aren’t currently booking direct to try our Web sites,” said Eric Pearson, senior vice president, E-Commerce, IHG. “More than 85 percent of our guests booking online use our Web sites. We offer the fewest number of clicks to complete a reservation, the ability to personalize their experience, and the promise that they can get the best publicly available rates online through our Lowest Internet Rate Guarantee.”

Earning extra points is especially attractive now. Through Priority Club Rewards “Any Hotel, Anywhere” redemption benefit, members residing in the United States can redeem their points for a prepaid lodging card redeemable at any hotel where the American Express(R) card is accepted, including rivals’ properties. The program was unveiled in July to provide Priority Club Rewards members with more freedom and flexibility in how they spend their program points.
