IHG is full of surprises here lately…heh, heh, heh.
First they announce a great promotion whereby current IHG members can earn 50000+ bonus points with Accelerate and new members can earn a FREE NIGHT for EVERY TWO nights.
That is just ridiculous. If you haven’t signed up for that promotion…do it here.
THEN, IHG announced some amazing point breaks ( 5k a night) and I booked a trip to Egypt because of it. SAY WHAT??!??!??!
NOW, IHG has gone and done it again with Priceless Surprises.
By the end of it, you could be staying at the Intercontinental Sydney…FAH FREE
Priceless Surprises targets those members who hold an IHG credit card. We’ve talked about this before, people…if you don’t have one of these cards you’re missing out on a very valuable credit card. Namely, the annual free night at any IHG property in the world for $49/year annual fee. The intention of the promotion is to encourage members to register and then whenever they stay at a IHG property, they will earn a surprise bonus on their stay. IHG is really bending over backwards to attract existing and new members to increase their stays at the hotel. What’s even better is that this promotion is stackable to the Accelerate promotion, meaning you can earn both bonus opportunities concurrently. YEAAAAHHHH!!!!!! WE LOVE STACKABLE.
Here are the deets
- Like all promotions, YOU MUST REGISTER. Do it here
- It begins on November 15th
- YOU MUST, AGAIN YOU MUST hold an IHG Credit Card before Nov 15th – if you don’t have one….search for the 80k offer. It is floating around out there. If you can’t find it…here is the normal 60k link.
- Try looking in your account after you’ve logged in…
- 94 times!!!! 94 TIMES you can earn a surprise bonus. These bonuses start at 500 points. That’s 47k minimum
- You don’t even need to stay!!!!!!
Let’s take a look at 5 a little more closely. YOU DON’T NEED TO STAY!!!
- If you’d like to read the official rules…go here
- But I’m going to go through some of the basics…
As you can see here…you can mail in individual entries, up to 94, to win the prizes…starting at 500 points. There are surprise trips to Paris, New York, and even a couple Million point prizes. If you’d like to see the entire list please go here.
So by mailing in…if we just played the odds
That’s 63,500 if the odds are just normal. If you get crap odds…47k and who knows… you might be going to Paris and have over a million more points in your account. Lemme know how you fair in this excellent promotion. I’ll be sitting in front of my TV watching Miles practice his dexterity with a pen and paper writing in entries =)
