The next IHG Rewards Club promotion is up and available for registration.
They’re coming out with ‘Accelerate’ again for stays between September 1 and December 31 you earn even more points. And in some ways it’s my favorite hotel promotion — not as much for its richness as much because it is sort of fun. It’s tough to get a thrill over double points for stays you’re going to make anyway.
IHG Rewards Club has moved to ‘gamified’ promotions with different pieces meant to incentivize behavior among members — with the specifics driven by data about your activity so far, like whether you’re a co-brand credit card holder or an elite or which of their brands you stay with.
For instance they’ve had:
- The Big Win (which they ran twice)
- Into the Nights
- Set Your Sights
- Accelerate and then Accelerate
- Share Forever
Sign up for the new Accelerate and you’ll see the offer you qualify for.
Here’s my offer:
I’m not a frequent guest at IHG hotels like Intercontinental (any longer) or Holiday Inn. I value IHG Rewards Club points at 6/10ths of a cent apiece. Like last quarter I’m just being bonused for incrementally more and more stays and without especially rich offers.
On the other hand others are likely to get much more lucrative offers, for instance last quarter some had “36000 points for 1 stay before 30th June in Asia paying with IHG credit card” (via multiple tasks with a single stay and stacking bonuses). And people can likely earn at least twice as many bonus points as I’m being offered.
What’s your offer?
