IHG is back with a new promotion for the 1st quarter of 2015. In the last quarter of 2014, they ran a (somewhat?) successful promotion called Into the Nights, where each IHG member received a personalized list of “tasks”. You earned points based on the completion of those tasks, and then a BONUS if you completed all of them.

(SEE ALSO: Why I’m not bothering with IHG’s Into the Nights promotion (and maybe you shouldn’t either))
If you completed all of them, you could earn either 50,000 IHG points, or 2 nights at any IHG hotel. Most people planned to take the 2 free nights, since it might mean 2 free nights at a super-swank hotel.
50,000 points is nice, and if you time it right, you might make it last for 10 nights (by only choosing Point Breaks hotels). Check out the current list of hotels that you can get for only 5,000 points.
Unfortunately, the IHG Into the Nights promotion was fraught with technical glitches, and people are still reporting issues trying to get their dashboard to update with stays that they’ve already taken. Hopefully they’ve got the IT department working this time for the new IHG Set your Sights promotion.

Complaints about IHG Set your Sights
One of the complaints about the Into the Nights promotion was from loyal IHG users. The general trend was that you got a better IHG Set your Sights offer if you were new(er) to the program. People who already stayed often with IHG tended to get crazy offers requiring 19 or 24 or more stays. It seems that the goal of the IHG Set your Sights promotion was to try and attract new customers, rather than reward existing loyal customers.
You can see that in our 2 offers.
Carolyn has never stayed at IHG (well, she’s never stayed there under her name), so I would assume that this is the “base” offer – it looks like it could be done with 2 stays / 3 nights at 2 different Holiday Inn hotels (one of them over a weekend). I have a few stays at IHG, so mine is a little more difficult, requiring a stay at a Holiday Inn Vacation or Resort property (which I assume would be more expensive).
What was your offer? Make sure to let us know in the comments, along with how frequently you already stay with IHG!

As a loyal (well ex-loyal) I got screwed twice. 19 nights on the last one and to punish me for not (well refusing to) meet that they gave me 20 nights on this new one. Done….
