When I was looking at the bonus Into The Nights-promotion bonus offers (read more here) the other day that were apparently same for all, I realized that it would be quite easy to complete them.
My biggest issue was that I was not going to have an award stay and there were no hotels on the current PointBreaks list that I could have just booked and checked in nearby where I was going to be.
You can access IHG Rewards Club web page for this promotion here.
There was another option, however, to complete the Reward Yourself by ordering merchandise award.
There are magazines available for US based accounts starting at just 900 points that should qualify the merchandise requirement.
I had to order a soup and a sandwich combo for 2,500 IHG Rewards Club points to complete the promo.
Then I have to to do later today (already 31st here) a hotel review of one of the stays that I had had and “customize” my hotel search to complete the two hurdles that don’t have any points attached to them. I am actually staying at an InterContinental tonight, so the paid stay will be in during the last week of the promo too.
This Into The Nights-promotion from IHG Rewards Club has been an utter mess from changing promotion goals for some to non-posting completed hurdles to others.
My dashboard wasn’t updating for a long time, but then it suddenly caught up and was able to choose the free night certs in lieu the bonus points.
I hadn’t planned to complete the additional bonus offers, but if I could get 20,000 bonus points by ordering useless merchandise award for 2,500 points, why wouldn’t I do it.
