IHG Accelerate promotion: Fall 2016
IHG released their Accelerate promotion and I just got around to registering, logging in, and investigating my offer. In case you aren’t familiar with the Accelerate program, it is a challenge and tier based promotion where IHG awards bonuses after you complete each challenge, and then a SUPER bonus if you complete multiple challenges. In the past I haven’t really had that great of offers, but some people get insane deals. For instance, my mom’s IHG Accelerate promotion for Fall 2015 awarded a free night anywhere in the world after just 2 stays with a max of 2 free nights. That’s insane. So let’s take a look at my IHG Accelerate promotion: Fall 2016
The three things that stick out to me are:
- the stay once and get 3000 points
- stay once in September for a 5000 point bonus.
- Use my IHG credit card for a bonus of 1500 points.
I have a couple of trips planned for September and I’ll have to a peek and see if there is a good IHG hotel where I’ll be. One stay at an IHG hotel could net me 9500 bonus points. Typically you have the option to buy points for $0.007 at the time of check out. At this valuation, I’d be receiving just less than $70 but value. Not too shabby really, but not something I’d go out of my way to book.
I manage both of my parents accounts and I’m interested to see if they got any offers as sweet as my mom’s last year. Hope you guys get something amazing!
