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
- 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
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!
