IHG Rewards Club launched last week an add on promo for their current Accelerate-offer (read more here) that is for double points for corporate travelers through December 31, 2017, and I wrote a piece about it at the time (access 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. A reader forwarded me the offer.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here’s the email that was sent out:
Here’s what just posted to my account:
Accelerate KNR Incentive is definitely cryptic definition but this must be something internal IHG lingo for this offer and exactly same that was used back in 2016.
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, other promotions and possible elite status bonus points.
Note that the link on the email that the reader forwarded me resolved to a page for the previous double points offer during the Accelerate promo that ended on August 31, 2017. The promo T&Cs on the email itself do confirm that the offer is valid for stays until end of this year.
It would be great if IHG would timely inform eligible members about these offers and IHG’s Singapore office would actually include the link to the correct web page or update the dates (now they are incorrect).
This is a nice double points for those that were targeted by IHG and have stays coming up in the area.
Note that I did not receive an email from IHG about this offer but the promo points are posting regardless.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
