IHG Rewards Club fall 2015 promotion is Accelerate and has been announced for hotel stays from September 1 to December 31, 2015. Members have tasks to complete to earn at least 50,000 bonus points, similar to the Into the Nights and Set Your Sights offers of the past year.
Registration for IHG Rewards Club Accelerate promotion is open as of today, August 24.
Targeted tasks mean you have to register to learn about your specific IHG Rewards Club Accelerate promotion tasks for bonus points. Important to note: No retroactive credit for IHG brand hotel stays completed prior to Accelerate promotion registration.
Up to Two Free Nights for new IHG Rewards Club members
The big news is for newly enrolled members to IHG Rewards Club. Earn one free night at any IHG hotel worldwide after two eligible stays and earn a second free night after another two eligible stays.
This is a targeted promotion with specific offers for each IHG Rewards Club member. I looked over the FlyerTalk thread and there seems to be little overlap in tasks among members. These are really targeted tasks with some members having to book using their corporate code and some members, like me, having to make hotel stay payment with my IHG Rewards Club credit card.
My tasks for IHG Rewards Club Accelerate
1. One Stay for 5,000 points.
2. Five Nights for 6,800 points.
3. Three stays on Points and Cash for 3,600 points.
4. Pay for one IHG stay with IHG credit card for 1,500 points.
Complete 3 tasks for 33,100 bonus points.
Looks like my offer requires at 4 to 9 hotel nights and two or three hotel stays. I see that as highly achievable, although I have to buy 15,000 to 30,000 points at a cost of $120 to $210 to earn 50,000 bonus points.
As I have said for years, the fact that I infrequently stay on paid rates at IHG hotels generally gives me easily achievable tasks in these IHG Rewards Club promotions. I had over $1,000 USD in free hotel nights this summer with IHG Rewards Club on $235 in hotel spend in fall 2014.
Currently, I have ten hotel nights scheduled for IHG Rewards Club hotels in Europe over the next six weeks. I might jiggle my reservations a bit to take advantage of this promotion.
