Stay between May 1-September 5, 2016. Valid for US members only.

For a non-US member promotion, IHG has an Accelerate promotion running June-August 2016 that specifically excludes US members.

Promotion time-frame for earning points:
~30 calendar days after registration -- 1,000 registration bonus points post to account (spire only)
~4 calendar days after checkout -- dashboard* will reflect activity
~21 calendar days after checkout -- bonus points post to account

Promotion time-frame for sharing points:
~5 calendar days after receiving gift -- 1,000 share points post to account

* To get to the dashboard, due to an IT bug, you have to "register" instead of "log in", even if you've already registered. But you're not re-registering; if you "register" and you were already registered, that simply processes it as a login and takes you to your dashboard info.

7,000 points by May 31st. Sadly, no travel I can steer from other brands to IHG and that's not lucrative enough to mattress run around here. I don't think I'll be participating much in this one. Maybe the 3 nights by September 5 for 2,100 but I don't think so. I'm more focused on maintaining Hilton Diamond right now.

So, just as a datapoint... I (Platinum) got the email about it, but my wife (Club) did not. We're in the USA. I registered for this and then went to register my wife right after to see what her offer was -- and, for her, it kept saying "invalid promo" and wouldn't let her register. About an hour later, I tried it again and it went through just fine. She still never got an email about it though (just the one that you get AFTER you register).

Haha! Kidding. Just wanted to see the reactions. It's 24 nights for 71,400. Yeah, not happening! Wish it was 4.

I hit all my goals on the Q4 2015 program and made Spire last year. However, I get Plat through the CC and Spire isn't worth the extra effort so I've been concentrating on Hilton this year trying to maintain the Diamond they matched.

I may get 8000 points out of this promo as I can easily find a one-night trip to use for the first goal. Otherwise I doubt I'll even hit 8 nights in the promo period.

Classic IHG marketing:

Headline reads "Earn 108,000 bonus points!"

They add up to 102,000 points.

IHG marketing - a well meaning monastery full of shmonks.

I do like that it is progressive.
No applying for the 19th time for a credit card, no stays in unavailable Vegas rooms, no downloading the app to airport computers. Just spending nights.

It sounds like non America stays count (provided you are able to register). Is that how we are interpreting the T&C?

Oh boy: Stay 45 nights between May 1, 2016 and September 5, 2016 to earn 102,500 bonus points--plus a free night to share.

This is what I don't like about IHG's greedy bonus machine - the more you stay, the more they want you to stay. There is no end to the greed

That is not going to happen but what will happen is probably:

7,000 BONUS POINTS When you stay your first night by May 31, 2016
+
12,000 BONUS POINTS When you stay a total of 12 nights
+
1,000 POINTS TO SHARE with MYSELF When you stay 1 night by September 5, 2016
+
1 FREE NIGHT TO SHARE with MYSELF When you stay 15 nights by September 5, 2016

Maybe

19,500 BONUS POINTS When you stay a total of 25 nights
+
20,000 BONUS POINTS When you stay a total of 30 nights

Definitely not
50,000 BONUS POINTS When you stay a total of 45 nights

Unless SPG and HH are not offering anything

Questions:

1 - Can we share with ourselves again?
2 - If I have a single stay from the night of 4/30 to the night of 5/1 - does 1 night post for the last promotion and 1 night post for this promotion?

Got offer for 7000 points for 1st night by 5/31
+1400 for 2 nights by 9/5

I have 2 questions--

First, I just made a booking 2 days ago for 5/28. The booking was made BEFORE this promo was available, but the stay will be DURING the promo period. Will I get those 7000 points? It is a refundable rate... should I just cancel and re-book?

Second question-- the above booking is the AMB BOGO weekend booking, 2 nights total. Will this count as 1 or 2 nights for the promo?

Thanks

So this is nice. Fortunately, I recorded my requirements upthread because I just went into my promos on IHG. There's no list there anywhere of what my bonus requirements were. If I hadn't copied it down when I registered, I would have no record of what I needed to do for points.

Can anyone else find it?

Thanks,
Mike

Never mind, found it. for those who are looking and have previously registered, there should be a link in the Account Status box. Then, refill the registration form. Clunky, but effective.

Mike
