Late last month, IHG Rewards Club launched an add on promo for their current Accelerate-offer (read more here) that is for double points for corporate travelers through August 31, 2017 (I wrote about it at the time here).
The double points promo is valid for stays in Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa. It is unclear what corporations qualify and what was the exact start date of this offer. I now have this promo points applied to couple of stays.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here’s what posted to my account:
Note that these didn’t post with the stay itself but few days/week later with “Accelerate KNR Incentive” description.
Here’s what IHG originally emailed about this promotion:
Note that this offer is NOT valid for stays in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau & Taiwan). These bonus points are in addition to the points that you earn for the Accelerate promotion and possible elite status that you have with IHG.
Well. I don’t mind earning double points in addition to the Accelerate hurdle promo points that I have been completing (won’t earn the major bonus this time).
Took a while for me to figure out what these “Accelerate KNR Incentive” bonus points must to be.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
