IHG Rewards Club launched the other week an Accelerate-promotion called “Make Every Stay Count” that begins today and is valid through the end of the year.
Members that register for this offer have personalized offers based on their recent stay history with the stay. You must register for this offer by October 18. Readers posted their targeted offers on the original piece (access here) and some had weird offers fore merely 1,000 bonus points (read more here).
You can access and sign up for this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here’s my personal offer:
IHG Reward Club has been very predictable with their Accelerate-offers now for several years. Good to have always opportunities to earn bonus points but perhaps some variety would be in order?
It is really weird that some members are only eligible for 1,000 bonus points through the end of the promotional period. Let’s hope that this is merely a programming error at IHG’s end.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
You must be an IHG® Rewards Club member and must register your member number in advance to participate in the promotion (“Promotion”). Upon Registration (as defined below), members will be presented with the opportunity to earn bonus points upon completion of all offers presented.
