According to a press release from InterContinental Hotels Group, you can earn 2,000 IHG® Rewards Club points1 and $20 off their first ride with Uber. This deal between IHG and Uber is reminiscent of the SPG/Uber partnership, however this deal doesn’t look as good to me.

IHG Partners With Uber 

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, and Uber, announced today a new collaboration designed to make it easier and more rewarding for guests to get to and from their hotels. From this week, anyone who is traveling within the U.S. and signs up as a new Uber rider can earn 2,000 IHG® Rewards Club points1 and $20 off their first ride with Uber.  Now, travelers can conveniently request a ride from the award-winning IHG® App through the Uber API and in early 2016, they will be able to set Uber “Ride Reminders.”

Guests can enjoy the benefits of this new partnership by following these simple steps:

•   Update the IHG App or download it here.

•   Book a stay at an IHG hotel anywhere in the U.S.

•   To get to your destination, select the Uber button in the
IHG App to request a ride.

•   Guests will be directed to the Uber App where the hotel’s
address will be pre-populated. If the Uber App is not
installed on the guest’s mobile device, they will be directed
to an app install link.

•   New Uber riders will receive $20 off their first ride and a
digital voucher code from Uber via email to deposit 2,000
IHG Rewards Club points into their member account.
Points can be redeemed toward a future stay at any of the
more than 4,900 IHG hotels in the world.

Bottom Line

Looks like IHG is getting in on the Uber partnership similar to Starwood. But, this deal isn’t as good because it looks like it is only good for your first ride with Uber vs. earning points with SPG every time you ride.
