InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) unveiled their next Accelerate Promotion for January-April 2018. The personalized promotions are different for each member and in my case would offer up to 17,500 points for a single night stay and a total of 59,200 points if I meet all goals! Despite the issues I’ve encountered with previous IHG Accelerate promotions, this could be very lucrative!
IHG Rewards continuous to offer personalized promotions that are based on your stay history, making them more or less attractive based on how much you stay. In my case for Q1/2018, I’ll have the following goals:
As always, you can meet several goals with a single stay. If I were to stay one night in January outside the Americas and pay with my IHG Rewards MasterCard, I could earn 17,500 points (worth $87.50). If I stay later than January, it’ll still be 15,500 points! It should be easy for me to find an IHG hotel were that would be a significant discount, possibly more than what I’d pay for that night.
Three stays with a total of 5 nights would earn me 54,200 points (worth $272.50 – or $54.50/night!). It’s these huge rewards that have attracted me to IHG Rewards before and keep me coming back, despite the bad experience I’ve had recently: IHG Rewards decided to not honor their own terms, causing me to loose out on tens of thousands of reward points.
