My One Lone Offer: IHG Rewards Club Accelerate Autumn 2019 Promotion Registration is Now Open

You can earn a minimum of tens of thousands of IHG Rewards Club points — plus additional opportunities to earn even more points — when you stay at a participating hotel or resort property worldwide from Sunday, September 1, 2019 through Saturday, December 21, 2019 on every stay…

My One Lone Offer: IHG Rewards Club Accelerate Autumn 2019 Promotion Registration is Now Open

…but you must register for this promotion by Friday, October 18, 2019.

Similar to other Accelerate promotions offered by IHG Rewards Club in recent years, you will have tasks to complete in order to earn a minimum bonus of IHG Rewards Club points; and the tasks are targeted specifically for you.

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

Actually, the correct nomenclature is task — not tasks — for this specific promotion.

I can earn up to 40,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points by earning double points on every stay — starting with my second stay.

In other words, the Accelerate promotion for autumn 2019 is nothing more than a double points promotion for me.

Definition of a Stay

Only one room per member per qualifying stay will be awarded the applicable bonus points.

A 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:

Rate and Stay Exclusions

Bonus points are not issued for non-qualifying room rates or non-qualifying stays, which include the following:

  • Net wholesale individual and group rate
  • Certain package rates
  • Employee discount rate
  • Friends and family rate
  • Crew rate
  • Special discounted contract rates
  • Seasonal worker rate or crew rate
  • 50 percent travel club discount rate
  • Travel industry discount rate
  • Distressed passenger rate
  • IHG Rewards Club reward nights or airline hotel reward rate
  • Rates booked through third party Internet web sites
  • Complimentary hotel stays
  • Any other rates not defined as a qualifying room rate at the sole discretion of InterContinental Hotels Group

Select Terms and Conditions

Realize that each bonus opportunity has its own requirements, terms and conditions which you should read first before attempting to accomplish each task; so ensure that you read them before participating in — and completing — each task.

The bonus points earned through individual offers can be used for redemption opportunities toward reward nights, merchandise and other redemption opportunities.

Each promotion offer of bonus points is available only once to you. No retroactive bonus points will be awarded for stays prior to registration.

You must be a member of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program and must register your membership number in advance in order to participate in the Accelerate promotion. By clicking “one click registration”, you are registering for Accelerate and agreeing to receive IHG Rewards Club marketing communications and the terms and conditions of the Campaign and Privacy Statement.

Only one room per member per qualifying stay will be awarded the applicable bonus points, or other benefits — if any — available under the applicable offer. If more than one member checks into the same room, only one member is eligible for the applicable bonus points, or other benefits — if any — available under the applicable offer.

IHG Rewards Club Members with a Miles earning preference will earn points.

Except as otherwise stated in the terms and conditions, please allow up to three weeks for promotion offer bonus points to be credited after checkout.

Inquiries pertaining to this promotion must occur by 60 days from the end of the campaign promotional period.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Summary

As I have already mentioned, the Accelerate promotion for autumn 2019 is nothing more than a double IHG Rewards Club points promotion for me — which almost seems like a sole offer was lazily thrown my way with no thought…

…but then again, I am purportedly not under any obligation to stay a minimum number of nights at a minimum number of hotel and resort properties in order to qualify to earn double IHG Rewards Club points. I can apparently earn double points on a single stay of one night — but starting with my second stay. How lame. If I am only going to get one offer for this promotion, why not just have me earn double points on the first stay?

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 — although I might consider participating in this promotion under the right conditions; and I have already registered for this latest offer…

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

    Mine is only for 13,300 points. Not even going to bother with that low amount

    I haven’t played for a couple years either. Less achievable, it seems. Or maybe my travel pattern has changed.

  3. Carl P says:

    29K for 2 weekend stays (2 nights each), staying at four brands, and staying at 2 resorts.

    I’m a year without a paid IHG stay and that’s not due to change.

  4. Kevin says:

    My offer is for…1,000 points. Stay one night and get a whopping 1,000 points. Really IHG? I wonder why I stay at Hyatt’s.

  5. DaninMCI says:

    I got the same offer while my wife got a really good set of offers worth 123k total. Weird as we both are IHG elite with many stays per year.
