Piling on the points is something you can really do with this program because they run many concurrent promotions, ostensibly targeted but that are often in practice open to everyone and can often be stacked on top of each other.
You don’t always know which promotions will post and which will not with this program, but in advance of a stay at one of their hotels (eg Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza) it’s wise to sign up for as many promotions as possible that you think you might be able to meet the qualifications for.
Head for Points updates and adds to the list of known promotion codes you can register for.

And of course these are on top of your customized ‘Big Win’ promotion offer.
Just go to the promo registration page and enter your account number and the code number of the promotion you want to register for.
Normally I advise signing up for promotions right away, in order to not have to remember to do it when you have a stay or unexpectedly stumble into a stay. In this case I advise otherwise — many of these promotions are time-limited, not by a specific date range but by a number of days from the time you register to earn the bonus. So wait until you’re about to have a stay and then register.
