While I was traveling on Friday IHG emailed me the details on their new
promotion and while there was only supposed to be a sneak peek of the
promotion until it officially launched tomorrow it appears they have let
people register early and the promotion itself is customized for every member with only the first bonus on the first nights stay being the same for everyone. That bonus is 1,000 points or 500 airline miles. After that is where the customization kicks in for each member. Here is the offer as it will appear on our very large IHG Rewards Club Bonus points page tomorrow:

Earn at least 50,000 IHG® Rewards Club bonus points or at least 10,000 miles throughout the promotional period when you stay at any IHG hotel, including the InterContinental® Hotels &
Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo® Hotels,
Holiday Inn® Hotels, Holiday Inn Resort® Hotels, Holiday Inn Club
Vacations®, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels, Staybridge Suites® Hotels or
Candlewood Suites® Hotels brands Worldwide. Members will be awarded with 1,000 bonus points or 500 miles for their first night’s stay. Members will begin to earn when they register and stay between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013. After the first stay, members will receive customized offers to earn at least 50,000 bonus points or 10,000 bonus miles for stays during the promotional period.

Here is the offer I received:
Try One and Done: 1,000 Points
Stay More and Earn More: Stay a total of 4 nights and receive 4,000 Points
Explore our brands: Stay at 3 different IHG brands and receive 10,000 Points
Book with us: Book 2 separate stays through an IHG® hotel website or mobile device to get our best price guarantee and receive 2,000 Points
Win in a Weekend: Stay 2 Saturday nights and receive 8,000 Points
Win Big: Complete all of your offers and receive 25,000 Points

My offers are pretty low as I hit only the 50,000 point mark whereas others are reporting offers that get them bonuses into the 70,000 point range. However this offer is easily achievable with as little as three stays with one of those stays being 2 nights long. I may just try for this offer even though most of my stays have been directed towards Starwood and Hyatt as of late since those 50,000 points would net me a stay at Category 9 hotel or even the possibility of 10 free nights using IHG’s PointBreaks offer of reward nights for 5,000 points.
