IHG Into the Nights had to be one of the most complicated and tech troubled loyalty promotions of 2014. The promotion was a hassle of uncertainty, however, two paid hotel nights to earn two free nights made the effort worthwhile in my case.
This update is to share something about my wife’s Into the Nights offer. Her task board never updated from the original page posted in October, even after a stay in early November.
This concerned me since we stayed three more times at IHG hotels in the past two weeks. Her tasks were a simple stay two times and earn one free night. Three stays posted and her last stay on December 30 has not posted yet.
I checked her Into the Nights task board this morning.
Even though there is no activity shown on her task board, there was a reward choice offered for 25,000 points or 1 Free Night. We selected the free night.
One Free Night in her account lets me rest easy with the assumption the second free night will be offered once her Holiday Inn Express Monterey Bay stay on December 30 posts to her IHG account.
All in all, we paid for six hotel nights at a cost of about $650. We needed five of the hotel nights for our travels and the stay this week was $117 for a hotel nearby that we didn’t need. I’m pretty certain we will stay in hotels in Europe using our four free hotel nights in July 2015. I expect the lowest room rates at the hotels we stay on our free nights will be somewhat more expensive than the $650 we spent to earn the free nights.
Set Your Sights on 2015 is the new IHG Rewards Club offer that I am looking at combining with Alaska Airlines fly two times and get a free flight available to residents of California, Oregon and Washington for flights to ski destinations through February 23, 2015.
