My final two IHG Into the Nights tasks posted for 2 free nights. This promotion had me excited in September when I was sitting in a Clarion Collection hotel room in Oslo and saw that I needed to only stay 3 nights with two Saturday nights at a Holiday Inn to earn two free nights.
Then, in October, I logged into my Into the Nights dashboard to see my five tasks had changed to a completely different set of six tasks, which would earn two free nights if I completed five of the six tasks. The limiting factor was either 7 hotel nights or two hotel stays in two different countries outside the USA. I stayed at Holiday Inn London Gatwick Airport on a bonus points with breakfast rate three weeks ago and Holiday Day Inn Express Dublin Airport last week to complete my five tasks in two hotel nights.
This morning my IHG Into the Nights dashboard updated to show I have completed five tasks in my two 1-night hotel stays.
Taking two free nights rather than 21,300 bonus points is a no brainer.
It is likely I will redeem the two free nights for an InterContinental Hotel in Europe next summer for some place like London Park Lane or The Amstel, Amsterdam.
IHG Into the Nights Clusterf#*k Bonus Round
While I am happy to have earned two free nights for $235 on two paid hotel stays I needed anyway in London and Dublin, I have to laugh at the IHG Into the Nights Clusterf#*k Bonus Round opportunity presented to me upon completion of the original tasks for free nights.
My congratulations on completing Into the Nights included another set of Bonus Offers tasks for more points. The Bonus Offers page states I can earn 20,000 points for completion of six tasks, however, there are only two tasks shown offering bonus points for a total 6,000 points.
This would be a decent offer, except for the stay 3 nights limitation. We still need 3 IHG stays to complete Kelley’s offer for two free nights. Those 3 nights on Kelley’s account are worth far more than 26,000 bonus points in my account.
