IHG has released its Accelerate promotion for the Summer of 2018. Like every other Accelerate promo, it is a tiered-like game with several tasks you need to complete. Bonus points are earned for completing tasks, as well as completing a threshold of tasks.
IHG runs multiple versions of the Accelerate promotion; you'll have to register to see the details of your specific promotion. This quarter, my promo can earn up to 46,100 bonus points, for activities running between May 1, and July 31, 2018.
- Promotion period: May 1, through July 31, 2018.
- You must register for the IHG Accelerate Summer 2018 Promotion
Typically, the promo has relatively few terms and conditions—although it is always best to check the full T&C’s if you are going to invest in the promo.
My promotion comprises the following tasks:
- Stay once and earn 2,000 bonus points
- Stay 5 nights and earn 10,000 points
- Stay at 2 Holiday Inn brand hotels (including Holiday Inn Resort, and Holiday Inn Club Vacations but excluding Holiday Inn Express properties) and earn 5,600 bonus points
- Book 2 stays with the IHG App and earn 3,200 bonus points
- Stay 2 weekends, including a Saturday night and another night, and earn 8,000 bonus points
- Book 1 stay using Points & Cash and earn 2,400 bonus points
- Complete 6 of the 7 offers and earn a further 11,400 bonus points
- Stay once in May and get 2,000 bonus points
This quarter’s Accelerate promo is an attractive proposition, and it should be easy enough to pick up the maximum number of points for staying 5 nights. For instance, one weekend stay in May at a Holiday Inn hotel, another weekend stay in June at a different Holiday Inn property, and a single night at any other time during the promo period. The total bonus points earned would be enough for several free nights with the current IHG PointBreaks promo.
Remember if you are invested in IHG Rewards Points, use your IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card to pay for your stays and earn 10X points per dollar, as well as the privileges of complimentary Platinum status and a host of other benefits.
IHG Accelerate promotions can provide some great earning value, and with four promos per year giving away between 20,000 and 60,000 points, you can pick up a significant number of bonus points. The game with the IHG Accelerate promo is to pick up as many points as possible for the least number of nights; even a partial completion of the promotion can yield a substantial number of bonus points.
Focus on what gives you the best value and fits within your stay and travel plans. While we wouldn't mattress run for the promo, this quarter my promo is solid, and where I can pick up 46,100 bonus points for 5 nights; at an average of over 9,000 bonus points per night that is a great value.
