IHG announces Fall 2016 Accelerate promotion

IHG has announced the launch of their Fall 2016 promotion, Accelerate, in which you are given a custom list of tasks to complete to earn bonus IHG Rewards Club bonus points. If that sounds familiar, that’s because it is, they have been offering this promotion for the last few quarters. Once again, you must log in to your IHG account to find out your unique promo offer, which is based on your recent stay history.

Be sure to register for Accelerate and start earning more for your stays between September 6th and December 15, 2016.

Even if you’re unsure of your travel plans, some of the tasks are so simple that it could be worth throwing a hotel night or two toward IHG.

Here was my custom offer, with a possible bonus total of 54,900 IHG Rewards Club points:

  • 5,000 Stay Once Get 5,000
    Thank you for being a loyal IHG® Rewards Club member. Stay once and earn 5,000 bonus points.
  • 10,000 Stay More, Earn More
    Get closer to the rewards you want when you stay 5 night(s) and earn 10,000 bonus points.
  • 6,400 Stay Smart®
    Stay Smart® by staying at 2 Holiday Inn Express® hotel(s) and earn 6,400 bonus points.
  • 4,000 A Bonus Weekend Stay
    Stay with us for the weekend and earn 4,000 bonus points. A Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday night stay required.
  • 8,000 Explore with Confidence
    Stay in any country in Europe, Greater China (China Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa and earn 8,000 bonus points.
  • 1,500 Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card
    Book and pay for one stay with your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card and earn bonus points.
  • 15,000 Your Achievement Bonus
    Complete 5 of the 6 offers and earn (an additional) 15,000 bonus points.
  • 5,000 September Bonus Offer
    Stay once in September and get 5,000 bonus points.

At first glance these seem like some small point totals for a single task, but thanks to being able to cross off multiple tasks with a single stay, it’s actually not that bad. I could actually achieve all but one of the tasks with just three nights in two different Holiday Inn Express hotels, as long as one was on a weekend, and one was in September, and one was abroad in the areas listed.
