IHG Rewards Club has now launched their latest Accelerate-promotion that is valid for stays between May 1 – August 31, 2019 and requires registration by June 18.
Members have been targeted with a number of hurdles with variable bonus points based on their recent stay history with the chain.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here’s my personal offer:
I have had one IHG stays since my Royal Ambassador status was demoted to regular Ambassador on February 1st. It seems that Accelerate programming hasn’t picked up my greatly reduced number of nights spend at IHG hotels yet.
There are also two hurdles for activities that I have not used; one requiring booking Points & Cash and the other one Bonus Points Package-stay.
IHG launched double & triple points offer for members in Greater China (read more here). I am not sure if these two are combinable.
Remember to post your offer to the comment section below so that we can compare offers that IHG has extended to members. If you haven’t had any recent stays with IHG, your Accelerate-offer is likely good.
