IHG has a history of giving out some pretty good quarterly promotions, and they are back with the IHG Accelerate Fall 2016 promotion. For awhile, they were changing the name of the promotion every quarter but recently they seem to be sticking with “Accelerate”
- IHG Accelerate Spring 2016 promotion
- IHG Accelerate Summer 2016 promotion
- IHG Accelerate Fall 2016 promotion
Then there was the IHG Accelerate promotion from Q4 of 2015, which was the last one that I personally participated in
- Here’s my IHG Accelerate promotion offers – what’s yours?
- Rethinking my IHG Accelerate promotion offers
- My last IHG Accelerate promotion stay – what would you do?
- Trouble with IHG Accelerate stays not showing up?
- My IHG Accelerate points have posted – have yours?
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 Q1 2017 promotion
Accessing the IHG Accelerate Q1 2017 promotion
You can access the IHG Accelerate Q1 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 January 1st and April 15th. IHG Award stays and Cash and Points bookings typically do NOT count.
IHG Accelerate Q1 2017 Dan
Here is my promotion – I think I have no recent stays at any IHG brand
I’d have to stay 5 times to get any appreciable bonus points, so that’s probably not one that is going to fit with my current stay patterns
IHG Accelerate Q1 2017 Carolyn
Here is my wife’s promotion – I think she has no recent stays at any IHG brand either
This one is much better – with 2 stays at (different) Holiday Inn Express hotels, paid for with the IHG credit card and with 1 bonus points package (typically an extra $15-$25 for 5000 bonus points) would net an additional 30,000 bonus points. The 5000 bonus points from the bonus points package and 1,000 if one of those stays is in January would be extra. The good part about this offer is that because the “Achievement bonus” only requires completing 4 of the 5 tasks, we can skip the “Stay 5 nights” one.
Since Holiday Inn Express is one of my favorite hotel chains anyways (not Holiday Inn!), this may be something that we look at.
Again – register for IHG Accelerate promotion here – what were your offers?
