mmm, mine is more of a manbag than a case...

By unlocking 4 more, you crack the case and get 77,000. When you crack them all you will have earned up to 85,300 bonus points. Stay on the case—time is of the essence.
Unlock all 4

I did too, but my maximum bonus is much lower than yours. Are they based on how many PC points one has now?

Yes, got the same mail, but with a different amount of bonus points. A friend of mine has also received the mail and has also another amount of bonus points and different tasks then me.
So it looks like your tasks depends on the amount of bonus points you will receive

Mine's

1) 2000 for the survey
2) 1700 for 12 room nights
3) 2200 for 4 brands
4) 1700 for 3 saturdays

66,000 if you unlock all 4. Must be dependent on your current stay pattern i guess.

And the T&C say they can overlap i.e a saturday stay counts towards unlocking case 2 and 3 as well.

Interesting. Just as I clicked on this thread, Agent Kohoutek received a PC email re this promotion.

Spent 16 minutes (was trying to be thoughtful ) completing the annoying survey for 500 PC points.

Complete 3 of the 4 below to crack the case:
Stay 10 room nights - can do
Stay at 2 Brands - can do
Stay 2 Saturdays - okay
PC Select Visa 30,000

105,000 bonus points at the end of the rainbow.

Man, I got cheated. They only offered me 150,300. What's with the extra 300, though? I also get 105,000 points if I do four out of five.

This has got to be a joke. I only have to do four of the five following before 5/31:

*Complete a survey
*Stay two Saturday nights
*Stay at two brands
*Get the credit card
*Stay ten nights

I'm not sure I've ever stayed at an ICH property but have >42,000 points from all the promos they've run. Of course, this contest will break my streak of earning points without ever having stayed at an ICH property. And if there was ever a question about hotels valuing potential clients more than their existing loyal members, this offer could put an end to that.

An old account number ...... let's not be precise in case it identifies ...... 120k.

Can't stand those badly worded surveys so gave up after five minutes ....

Very childish looking. Is the tone of this set thoughtfully?
