InterContinental Hotels Group started a December Tweet Away promotion with Priority Club points giveaways and special hotel rate deals at http://twitter.com/ihg_deals. Each day in December at a random time during the workday an IHG_Deal tweet will direct the Priority Club member to retweet a phrase or answer a trivia question within a specified time frame of the original IHG deal tweet.
You must register as a Priority Club member to be eligible for the prize.
Trivia question prizes range from a eighth place prize of 17,000 Priority Club points ($170 value) to a Grand Prize of 73,000 points ($730 value).
ReTweet prizes range from seventh place prize of 30,000 points ($300 value) to the grand prize of 280,000 points ($2,800 value).
