IHG Rewards Club Accelerate returns for Summer 2017 - Earn 30,000 or more bonus points for your IHG stays!


We told you that when IHG launched their one month long spring promotion a few weeks that seemed like a stop-gap measure until the next Accelerate offer came out and we were correct! As soon as the spring bonus ends the summer Accelerate offer launches! As we have seen each Accelerate promotion they come out with new personalized offers for each member. The total bonus available per member ranges from a minimum of 30,000 points to well past 100,000. You can register for Accelerate here.

Here is the offer I received (the same as every time for me since I didn't have any IHG stays)

This is the baseline offer that any IHG Rewards Club member should receive however many of you will receive more rewarding offers. From past experience it does appear the more active you have been in the program the better the offer you'll receive. Let us know in the comments section what offer you received.

If you receive the above offer you'll need to complete three stays with four nights to get the bonus and you'll want to have them all at Holiday Inn Hotels.  These are the stays in no particular order:

  • Stay 1: Holiday Inn for a Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday nights on a member exclusive discount rate. This will complete the 'A Bonus Weekend Stay' and earn you 2,000 bonus points. It will also cover off 1 of 3 hotel requirements for 'Comfort Seeker', 1 of 2 requirements for 'Your Rate' and 2 of 3 nights for 'Stay More, Earn More'  
  • Stay 2: Holiday Inn for one night on a member exclusive discount rate. This will complete the 2nd requirement of 'Your Rate' and earn you 2,000 bonus points. It will also cover off the third night of 'Stay More, Earn More' so you'll earn 2,000 more points. It will also cover off the 2nd of 3 hotel requirements for 'Comfort Seeker'  
  • Stay 3: Holiday Inn for one night on a member exclusive discount rate. This will complete the 3rd of 3 hotel requirements for 'Comfort Seeker'  and get you the 2,000 bonus points. You have now hit all your achievements and you will get 21,500 bonus points.
If you could keep your costs to $100 per night you are looking at $400 in stays to earn the 30,000 bonus points. Not great but not bad at all, you are actually looking at about a $150 return with those 30,000 points.  Of course if you have a different offer you may get even better value out of the promotion!

Let us know what offer you get in the comments below!

Hilton Honors - Double Points on all stays this summer (Triple for Diamond Members)


As the month of April wraps up so does the current systemwide Hilton Honors bonus of 2,000 bonus points per night. Good news is there is no gap between that offer and the start of Hilton's summer bonus. The summer bonus is double points on all stays Worldwide with all hotels participating. The bonus gets even better if you are a Diamond Elite member as you'll get Triple Points. This bonus is good for those more expensive stays compared to the flat 2,000 bonus points we over Spring but for those stays that don't cost much you'll earn less with the double points offer. Remember as well if you book via a mobile you can earn 500 more points.

Offer details
Double Honors Points on all eligible stays at any Hilton Hotels Worldwide. Diamond members will earn Triple Points. Full details, online registration and booking (Registration is required)  May 1 - Aug 31, 17

Now live! IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks - Only 5,000 Points per award night at 100 hotels


We gave you the preview last week and are happy to tell you that the latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks hotel are now available for booking! This set has 100 hotels can now be booked for 5,000 points per award night for stays until July 31, 2017.

Remember the Pointbreaks rules are that a member can only book up to 2 reward reservations per hotel participating in the individual offer (ie 2 at Pointbreaks hotels and 2 at Last Minute Reward Night hotels).  My tip to get around this would be to book 2 reservations with one IHG Rewards Club account and then have your spouse book 2 more etc. Of course this is dependent on both accounts having enough points to redeem for these awards. Also be sure to book these ASAP as soon as the list comes out as once the allotted nights are booked at certain locations those hotels will fall off the list.




Why are IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks such a great deal? Because they offer reward nights at participating IHG hotels Worldwide for only 5,000 Rewards Club points. For those of you not to familiar with IHG Rewards Club , normal redemption rates for Rewards Club reward nights run from as low as 10,000 points for some Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations to 50,000 points for ultra-luxurious InterContinental locations and even these locations can participate in Point Breaks. So as you can see you can receive a discount of 50 to 88% off the regular redemption rates. You may be thinking that the high end hotels won't participate but they do depending on the time of year! Please note that like most loyalty promotions these offers are capacity controlled so I advise to book sooner than later to ensure you get the PointBreaks rate. These offers are now bookable via the primary PointBreaks page or via each individual hotel link below.

09:54MST Update: Some hotels are now live - others are coming online every few minutes - Keep checking to see if the hotel you want comes up soon!
