I found out about the extension of this promotion through an official e-mail message which was sent to me from IHG Rewards Club.

I have not bothered with Accelerate and similar offers during the past couple of years for the most part because they have been of little value to me. I still have yet to participate in this promotion, although I might consider doing so under the right conditions; and I have already registered for this latest offer…

…but I suppose it is better than nothing at all.
