Update 12/17/20: Rather than extending the free night certificates, IHG is actually just adding a second certificate that expires on August 31, 2021. Dans Deals has confirmed with IHG that IHG members can use both certificates without any issue. Meaning the free nights have been extended and you basically get an additional free night to use by December 31, 2020. Worth the wait in the end!
Update 12/16/20: People are now reporting that certificates have now been extended until August 31, 2021. Not all certificates have been extended as of yet.
According to JPWRana IHG plans to extend all free night certificates that expiring before December 31, 2020 until August, 2021. This has not been confirmed officially yet, but TPG also posted yesterday that an update was coming regarding these certificates. Previously IHG has extended free night certificates as follows:
- We are extending the expiration date of anniversary and free night certificates that are set to expire in 2020. Certificates expiring from March 1, 2020 can now be used through December 31, 2020.
- Certificates issued in 2020 will have an 18-month redemption time period.
Fingers crossed this is officially confirmed and certificate holders get some additional time to use these up.
