IHG Rewards Club Accelerate Autumn 2017 Promotion Registration is Now Open

Similar to other promotions offered by IHG Rewards Club in recent years, you will have tasks to complete in order to earn at least 30,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points; and the tasks are targeted specifically for you.

Here are the tasks which I can complete to earn up to 45,000 total bonus IHG Rewards Club points if I complete the Accelerate offers targeted specifically for me:

If I stay one night at a participating hotel property in any country in Europe, Greater China — which includes China Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan — Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa during the month of September, I apparently can snag a cool 11,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points, as multiple bonus opportunities can be “stacked.” Despite my not participating in promotions such as this in the past, I must say that that is rather tempting; and I have already registered.

You can earn at least 30,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points if you decide to complete all of the offers presented to you.

My offers include:

  • Stay Once, Get 1,000 bonus points simply for being a loyal member of IHG Rewards Club
  • Stay More, Earn More Get closer to the rewards you want when you stay five nights and earn 5,000 bonus points.
  • Change Your View Stay at two Holiday Inn hotel properties — including Holiday Inn Resort and Holiday Inn Club Vacations —and earn 5,600 bonus points
  • Earn More, Faster Earn 6,600 bonus points when you book one Bonus Points Package stay and get to your next reward faster
  • Explore with Confidence Stay in any country in Europe, Greater China — which includes China Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan — Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and earn 8,000 bonus points
  • Your Achievement Bonus Complete four of the five offers and earn an additional 13,800 bonus points
  • Big Apple Bonus Stay two or more nights at participating IHG hotel properties in New York City and earn 3,000 bonus points

qualifying stay is defined as one night or consecutive nights paying an eligible rate in the same hotel property — regardless of the number of times you check in or check out and as per IHG Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions — which include most business and leisure rates at hotel and resort properties worldwide when you book your reservations directly through one of the official Internet web sites of the participating brands of InterContinental Hotels Group:

Summary

I have not bothered with Accelerate offers during the past couple of years because they have been of little value to me; but I have been staying in hotel properties within the InterContinental Hotels Group brand portfolio more often in the past year, which may be a possible reason why my tasks seem to be easier to accomplish and more rewarding — or perhaps the Accelerate promotion has been improved for this quarter?

I do not know; but I am thinking about participating in it this time…
