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!
