IHG wants their customers and reward members to stay with them in the New Year, so the hotel group is offering a promotion that’s worth looking into whether you had travel plans or not. The Accelerate 2016 bonus promotion is not one I can break down for you by points. Unlike the other promotional stays, such as the one they have going on right now where you can write in and win as few as 47,000 points by simply putting a little bit of pen to some paper and investing in some stamps, this is not a promotion with any real rules. It seems that the Accelerate 2016 offer is different for all IHG members.
To find out what you can achieve when you stay a few nights at an IHG property, which includes everything from InterContinental to the Holiday Inn Express, you can actually go ahead and register for the promotion. It appears that the rewards and the way you earn them will not appear until you complete the free registration process online, so there is no reason not to do that now to see if the deal is worth it for you. From what we understand, however, there is an opportunity to earn points with five stays between January 1 and April 30. Each stay is worth a certain amount of points, and it seems that the amounts are based on the level membership you already have, the points you’ve already earned and much more.
Just register, find out what you have to do to earn more points and then do some calculations to find out whether or not those points are actually worth it to you to book a stay you might not require otherwise. Additionally, it doesn’t hurt to find out whether or not there are some other reward points with some other hotel groups that might be worth more.
