IHG One Rewards has unveiled an enticing promotion designed to encourage new members to join or existing members to renew their Ambassador membership for another year. This promotion presents a valuable opportunity to earn substantial bonus points, making it a cost-effective choice for travelers planning to stay at InterContinental, Kimpton, or Regent properties. In this article, we delve into the details of the promotion and how it can help savvy travelers maximize their benefits.
The Ambassador Renewal Promotion
IHG’s “Renew Ambassador, stay two nights, earn 20k bonus points” offer is aimed at existing members who wish to renew their InterContinental Ambassador membership. The renewal must be completed before the current membership expires or by December 31, 2022, whichever occurs sooner. There’s no need for a separate registration for this offer.
The promotion provides two options for renewal:
- Renewal by paying $200, which rewards members with 15,000 IHG One Rewards points upon renewal, plus an additional 20,000 bonus points after staying two qualifying nights at participating InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, or Regent Hotels & Resorts.
- Renewal by redeeming 40,000 IHG One Rewards points, earning members the same 20,000 bonus points after completing two qualifying nights.
A Qualifying Stay is defined as a minimum one-night stay booked under a Qualifying Rate, with a total spend exceeding $30 USD (or local equivalent) per night. Importantly, one of the nights can be covered by the free weekend night certificate offered as part of the Ambassador membership. This unique benefit simplifies the process and minimizes expenses for members.
It’s worth noting that this promotion can only be redeemed once per member, and the maximum limit is 35,000 IHG One Rewards points for renewals based on the payment of $200 or 20,000 bonus points for renewals based on redeeming 40,000 points.

The IHG Ambassador Renewal promotion offers a fantastic opportunity to both new and existing members. It allows travelers to extend their membership while unlocking a host of valuable benefits and earning bonus points.
