IHG has a history of giving out some pretty good quarterly promotions, and they are back with the IHG Accelerate Fall 2017 promotion.  For awhile, they were changing the name of the promotion every quarter but recently they seem to be sticking with “Accelerate”

Then there was the IHG Accelerate promotion from Q4 of 2015, which was the last one that I personally participated in

I was not eligible for the IHG Accelerate Summer promotion, as it was targeted to residents of other countries, but I’m back in business for the IHG Accelerate Q3 2017 promotion

Accessing the IHG Accelerate Q3 2017 promotion

You can access the IHG Accelerate Q3 2017 promotion at IHG’s website.  After you sign in, and accept the terms, you should see your dashboard, which will be personalized with your own offers.  Depending on your stay profile, you’ll have different tasks.  Typically, the more you have stayed previously with IHG, the harder your tasks will be to complete

All stays have to occur between September 1st and December 31st (both dates inclusive).  IHG Award stays and Cash and Points bookings typically do NOT count.

IHG Accelerate Q3 2017 Dan

Here is my promotion – I think I have no recent paid stays at any IHG brand – my most recent stay was in March at the Staybridge Suites San Francisco Airport, where I used my free night and paid $30 to get upgraded to a 2BR Suite

(SEE ALSO: Where I “wasted” my 2 IHG Free night certificates)

I can get 6,500 bonus points with one stay in September, but I’m not sure it’s worth it for 4 more nights to get the remaining bonus nights.  If I had upcoming stays where I needed a hotel that would be one thing but I don’t think mattress running this makes sense.  If I needed more IHG points (which I don’t), I could buy 35,000 points whenever I wanted for 0.7 cents a point or cheaper! ($245) which would likely be cheaper than 4 mattress runs.

My wife has…. the exact same offer 🙁  She has no recent stays on her account but does have an upcoming Point Breaks stay coming up at an exciting Holiday Inn Express!

I might try signing up one of my kids for an account to see what kind of offer they get but other than that it looks like we’ll be sitting this one out
