IHG has been offering their Rewards Club Accelerate bonus points promotion with regularity, and they have just announced their bonuses for the Q1 of 2017. The promotion runs from January 1st, 2017 – April 15, 2017. Much like their most recent promotions, each member of IHG Rewards Club will have their own unique offer. You must register ahead of time, which is good to do as soon as possible so you can see what your unique goals are.
Complete all of your Accelerate offers and earn 74,400 total bonus points.

1,000 January Bonus Offer Book and stay once in January and get 1,000 bonus points.
This is an intriguing offer, especially since I have an upcoming trip to Europe. While I have already booked my hotels for that trip, the fact that I can get 18,000 points for a one night stay in Europe, plus 5,000 points for making a stay, plus 1,500 if I put it on my IHG Rewards Club Credit Card, plus 1,000 for one January stay, plus whatever regular points I earn for the stay & spend itself, means that if I can find a convenient, cheap (or even a reasonably priced) room for one night during my trip, it would be worth it to make a mattress run, considering those points would be worth around $150.
Be sure to sign up to see your Q1 2017 Accelerate promotion, since you might find a pleasant surprise as well. Even if you don’t have any plans for upcoming stays, you might find that your offer is similar to mine, and you can get a nice amount of points for cheap.
