How To Get An Easy 5,000 IHG Points Doing What You Already Do

5,000 IHG points
Written by Charlie

Dining programs are yet one more way you can earn some great miles and points. One of the things I hear most often about them is the surprise expressed when people eat out and receive the miles – it is so easy and simple that they had even forgotten that they had signed up!

Not every restaurant works with these programs but there are many local restaurants that do. It is easy – you sign-up and register whatever credit/debit cards you want. Next time you dine at that restaurant, you will receive the bonus points just for eating there and charging it to the registered debit/credit card. It’s that easy! It does not have to be the co-branded card, it can be whatever cards you want.

Pick up an easy 5,000 IHG points doing what you already do!

IHG is running a promo to encourage more people to sign-up. In exchange for signing up and dining, you will receive a total of 5,000 bonus points! Here are the details:

  1. Join IHG Rewards Club Dining.
  2. Within 60 days of joining, dine at any participating locations and spend $50 or more (including tax and tip) using your registered credit or debit card (and receive 2,000 points).
  3. Complete your post-dine review(s) within 30 days of your experience.
  4. Repeat with an additional $100 spend during the same period to receive a total of 5,000 bonus points.

So, you will receive 2,000 points just for signing up and spending $50 or more at a participating restaurant in the first 60 days. If you dine out again and spend $100 or more, you will receive another 3,000 bonus points.

That means you spend a total of $150 ($50 + $100) over two visits and you will receive 5,000 IHG points. Just make sure you use the card you registered with their dining program! Since 5,000 IHG points is enough to get you a single night at a Pointsbreak hotel, that is an awesome deal. In fact, you could even get back the value of your $150 spent on dining with that one redemption.
