IHG has kicked off their Fall 2016 Accelerate promotion. This unique promotion provides a customized offer to each member. We're not sure exactly how the promos are targeted, but one can only assume it has to do with your activity, status, whether or not you have an IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, along with some other factors. Registration for the Fall 2016 IHG Accelerate promotion is free; sign up and start racking up your bonus points.
This promo can be used for reservations at the 5,000 properties in the IHG collection from September 6 through December 15, 2016.
How Does This Promotion Work?
You may remember IHG Accelerate’s Summer 2016 Promotion when it launched in May. If this is the first time you’ve heard of this promo, after you sign up, you are given a number of offers (which, yes, can be combined). You’ll unlock IHG Rewards bonus points after completing each offer. My customized promotion is below, where I have a chance to earn 33,500 bonus points:
How Can I Maximize This Promotion?
Maybe you’re scratching your head like I initially was, and wondering how accumulate the maximum amount of points with the minimum amount of effort and cost. It's a lot easier than it seems as the offers can be stacked on one another.
For me, it looks like the best way to make the most out of my promotion is to:
- Download, install and sign in to the IHG App.
- Make a reservation for two nights over the weekend (Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday) at a Holiday Inn using the members exclusive discount rate.
- Make a separate reservation for one night at a different Holiday Inn, again using the members exclusive discount rate.
As a newbie to IHG, I was surprised and pleased at how decent my offers were. I already planned on visiting Orlando in early December; it was nice to see a savings of about $16 per night in addition to the opportunity to max out on points.
How Do I Register for the IHG Accelerate 2016 Fall Promotion?
Don't forget; you can also book from IHG’s PointBreaks list of hotels through October 31, 2016. This quarterly offer lets you book select IHG properties for as little as 5,000 points per night, with huge savings of up to 80% off the standard reward price.
