Amazing offer: get instant IHG One Rewards Diamond status

Yes, you read that right: you can now get instant IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status.

Forget about status match challenges and fast-track deals – free IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status is just one click away in IHG’s Straight to Diamond promotion.

Update: the instant IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status promotion was suspended earlier this morning. As we suspected, it began life as a targetted promotion which IHG more openly publicised. It remains to be seen if IHG will revoke the free Diamond Elite status granted to those who got in fast.

Diamond Elite is the top tier of the IHG One Rewards loyalty program, and it comes with a suite of practical perks such as:

  • free breakfast for you and a guest at ‘full service and ‘select service’ IHG properties including InterContinental, Kimpton, Regent, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Voco and Holiday Inn
  • complimentary upgrades (subject to availability)
  • early check-in and late check-out
  • guaranteed room availability
  • 100% points bonus
  • rollover nights towards next year’s status
  • a dedicated Diamond Support hotline

All that, and more, is yours through to December 31 2022 in IHG’s Straight to Diamond promotion.

It doesn’t matter what your current IHG One Rewards status is – you could be parked at the entry-level Club tier or sitting one rung up as a Silver Elite – because this is a ‘zero to hero’ move that’ll catapult you to the very top of the IHG loyalty ladder.

To claim your instant HG One Rewards Diamond Elite status, just click through to IHG’s Straight to Diamond page, enter the email address associated with your IHG One Rewards acount and register with the promotion code 70027. 

Then watch for the confirmation email to hit your inbox – it should happen in minutes – and the IHG One Rewards website or IHG app will show your newly-minted status.

With IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status now yours through to December 31 2022, think of this as a way to sample the benefits of Diamond Elite.

And by staying just ten nights in any IHG property through to December 31, you can keep your IHG One Rewards Diamond Elite status to the end of 2023.

We think this promotion will be prove very popular, so don’t delay: hit IHG’s Straight to Diamond page with that promo code of 70027.

If IHG does happen to close this promotion, you may still be eligible to enrol in the ‘Fast Track to Elite’ program to unlock the benefits of Gold Elite status with only two nights’ stay and Platinum Elite in just five nights.

If you sign up for this promotion and also purchase the IHG Ambassador, does the expiry of the Diamond Elite status extend for a year?

I must be one of the unfortunates to who this doesn't apply - a typical IHG get out by not receiving a specific and targeted communication. As a Platinum Elite and Ambassador I don't seem to be eligible for certain offers, promotions etc...ho hum.

Code is now not working.   I called and was given numerous reasons why.  One of which I need to be employed by IHG to be eligible.  
When I asked to speak to a supervisor I was placed on hold and eventually, the call ended with no one answering. 
Oh well.  Guess Ill be using my Hilton Diamond instead.

Before the rebanding I was Spire Elite for several years and after failing to requalify, it was a soft landing down to platinum. I'm not too sure if the same rules apply after the shake-up.
