I believe I have completed the five tasks for my IHG Into the Nights bonus of two free nights.
Or have I?
My two stays from Holiday Inn London Gatwick Airport and Holiday Day Inn Express Dublin Airport posted to my account. Yet, only three of my five tasks on the IHG Into the Nights “Track your Status” page show completed.
3 0f 5 offers completed with Take our survey, Bonus Points Package with breakfast, and Apply for IHG Rewards Club credit card.
Holiday Inn London Gatwick Airport offered a 5,000 bonus points with breakfast rate at £83 GBP for a Saturday night when I flew into London Gatwick from Dublin on RyanAir. That is $130 to $135 USD depending on the bank exchange rate for my IHG MasterCard.
The lowest rate I could have booked was £47 GBP ($76 USD) on an advance purchase, prepaid rate. The additional $55 purchased 5,000 points and breakfast and completed the Into the Nights Bonus Point Package task for an additional 2,000 points.
Holiday Inn Express Dublin Airport was a hotel night before flying back to the USA last week. The hotel stay posted to my IHG account, but the stay has not registered on my Into the Nights tracker yet. I booked this stay through the IHG mobile app for €80.00 EUR which came out to a few cents over $100 with the currency exchange.
Globetrotter Travel 2 times internationally task fine print required a hotel stay in two different countries outside the USA. “Only one hotel stay per distinct country outside of your country of residence as indicated on your membership profile at the time of the promotion will be counted towards this Offer.”
This is why I booked IHG hotels in both the UK and Ireland.
Total expense = $235 USD for two one-night hotel stays in London and Dublin.
Projected benefit = 19,500 bonus points (Into the Nights bonuses) + 5,000 points (bonus points package on Gatwick stay) + 3,034 points (hotel spend) + 2 free nights at any IHG hotel in 2015.
27,534 points + 2 free nights for $235 makes the IHG Into the Nights promotion a good value for my hotel travel in fall 2014.
If IHG Into the Nights updates my promotion status tracker in the next three weeks to show I finished all five tasks for the two free nights.
