IHG has had in the past some great promotions. And many of them were worth taking advantage of. Like the 2 free nights after 6 stays with the Into the nights promotion or the 50,000 points for my husband with Set your sights.
Now they have again come up with a personalised offers for their fall promotion called Accelerate.
You can register for the promotion here and it is valid from 1st of September to 31st of December.
My offer is for 68,000 points if I stay a total of 22 nights. There is no way i am planning to do such a thing , since I personally prefer to spend the nights in Hyatt to re-qualify for my Diamond status than IHG. I know for people who stay often at IHG properties it will make sense but I personally would not be taking advantage of this offer.
I saw that Gary from View from the Wing mentioned that new members receive 2 free nights after only 4 stays. I decided to test this one out and I signed up my sister-in-law, since we are planning a trip together later on in September. I have to say that it did work for new members and it is a great offer. Since after only 4 nights you can get 2 free nights instead of the 22 that my account requires.
Once again I think the best offers are available to new members so if you haven’t signed up for IHG account before, or you haven’t stayed with them for a long time I think you are in for a treat. I definitely recommend you sign up and stay the 4 nights required. However I do find it annoying that existing members have some crazy targets to reach and it personally alienates me from the brand.
