Copying over the usual promotion info to the new thread:

For newcomers to IHG promotions, note that Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn (including Holiday Inn Resorts) are two different brand categories for these things. If your dashboard says 'stay at a Holiday Inn Express' as one of the tasks and you stay at a Holiday Inn, it will NOT credit for the Holiday Inn Express task. (and vice versa)

At IHG, points + cash stays are simply points stays where you bought some of the points at the time of the reservation. Once you finish the reservation, a points + cash stay shows as a points stay. Thus points + cash stays only count for tasks where they are specified, and not other tasks.

https://www.ihg.com/content/us/en/of...2017/dashboard

Some offers require booking within the promotion period in addition to staying during the promotion period.

another impossible completion for me. 2 of my current tasks are:
current promo required 24 nights, and 2 stays outside my country.
January promo is even harder. 31 nights and 3 stays outside my country.

No where near completing the current promo due to switching a lot of stays to Hilton / Stanwood.
So they have given me an even harder promo for january.

After a long email exchange for the last promo regarding the Corporate Rate stay task when I was told that there was no Corporate Rate attached to my IHG Account, the end result was - tough luck , you can achieve your completion bonus by completing all the remaining tasks. So for this quarter I have had 40 nights at Accor properties and 2 at IHG properties.

For next quarter unsurprisingly again I have been set a Corporate Rate stay task and equally unsurprisingly I will have a hell of a lot of stays at any property that is not an IHG hotel.

"Spend $42,000 on food or beverages at IHG® hotels and earn xxx bonus points"

Aha. Of course.

Will stays I've already booked qualify for this? Can't seem to find it in the T&Cs. I have 2 stays booked for January already, so just wondering if they'll count.

I got exactly the same challenges as last time, for for 3k less bonus points. Very easy ones to hit, but only for 30k total so hardly lucrative.

My total offer is 41,000, but I can hit most of the tasks (except 1) with 1 stay for 31,000 points, so it seems pretty lucrative.

Your January stays will very likely qualify, they usually do; all except for challenges of which the t&c explicitly mentions that they have to be booked during the promo period, but that's very rare.

Explore with[out] Confidence

One of my offers is as follows:
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 12,000 bonus points
Is the requirement to stay in any country "in each of" or "in one of"?

I got

Stay once = 3k points
5 nights = 10k points
Book three times with app = 3,600

Complete all 3 = 23,400
Stay in January = 1,000

just to be clear, if i have a night already booked, it will count?

My challenges seem easy but not a lot of points:

Stay once - 5K
Stay 10 - 20K
Stay a weekend - 4K
Pay with IHG Card - 1.5K
Complete 3/4 - 9.5K
Register - 500
January Stay - 1K

Total 41.5K

Challenges similar to last time except

Spend $30 more on F&B ($460) for 900 points less
Globe Trotter 3 countries (as before) for 3000 points less
Stay 16 nights (was 14) for 4000 more-not worth it TBHO

Must think I'm stupid.

I can cherry pick a couple of tasks but will not be going out of my way to complete this.

The terms state that stays at Kimpton will not qualify. I assume this means we still won't be able to earn IHG points at Kimpton next year
