    Can anyone confirm if IHG Bonus point rates post as Elite qualifying or as bonus points to your account. Travel loyalty is claiming if you book the bonus point rate for he Hotel indigo in NYC for the 25K bonus points you will get to be spire elite in 3 stays. I have not booked a bonus point rate in a long time so don't remember how they post. I know IHG CC points post as qualifying but I would assume they are called bonus points because they post as bonus points!

    I saw this post as well. I kinda wonder if they will count as EQP's although credit card spend bonuses with IHG hotels seem to so maybe.

    That was corrected within days of the bloggers breaking the news. The above oversightwill likely suffer the same fate.

    Yeah I know the bonus points with new card sign ups got fixed but last time I checked my account I was seeing some of the bonus spend points from the card still crediting toward status for hotel spending. Not sure if it's a different bucket or if they have fixed this in the last couple weeks.

    I had 2 friends stay at that hotel this year and they both booked the 25k bonus points package, for both of them they posted as elite qualifying.

    Bonus points that are part of the room package are supposed to be elite qualifying.

    Bonus points from promotions are not elite qualifying.
