My 2 Free Spire Elite Status Gifts: 25K IHG Points & Hertz Five Star Status

Good afternoon everyone.  A few weeks ago, I received an email from IHG stating that I had reached IHG Spire Elite Status which required 75 qualified nights or 75,000 qualifying points.  This was surprising to me since I haven’t spent that many nights at IHG hotels this year (only 16 nights in 2019), but I did have a few expensive hotel stays this year (82,768 qualifying points in 2019).  In the email, it stated 3 key Spire Elite benefits:

  • 100% bonus earning on top of base points (IHG Platinum Elite members get a 50% bonus)
  • Complimentary room upgrades (this is the same as IHG Platinum Elite members)
  • Exclusive annual choice benefit

The last bullet was the one that caught my attention.  I had the option to choose between 25,000 IHG Points or gift someone IHG Platinum Elite Status.  I clicked on the Choose Now button in the email and signed into my IHG account.
