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.

Doing a points + cash booking and then cancelling it does NOT trigger a 'buy points' task completion.

The 'pay with your IHG credit card' task has typically been very slow to post. If it does within about two weeks of completing a stay, that's relatively quick, and it will often be several weeks beyond that, depending on when your statement closing date is and how IHG's system sweep is timed.

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

yeah, saw on another site that some people are getting that buggy message. Probably the new offer hasn't swept to your account yet?

Also, I have a typo in the title, it should be Q2 Accelerate not Q1

Only have 1 reward night planned within the period, which even changed to paid would only yield 3,500 points, gonna pass.
Also, it appears that this time T&C only requires stays to be consumed but not booked within the period, please check.

Folks,

If you get this message and you are outside the US, try replacing the .../us/... in the link above with your country's locator. Being UK based, inserting .../gb/... did the trick for me.

Thanks - works for the British Empire as well. Inserting gb allowed me to register my Australia based account. Can't promise that it will work for Scotland though

Mine is ridiculous. I've stayed four nights since January when I joined IHG Rewards.

Early stay for 2,500
Stay Once get 1,000
then SIX 'stay three more nights' for 3,000 points, with the final one being worth 15,000

They expect me to stay 19 nights in the next four months? Absolutely absurd.

I also have a night in Berlin on the 13th May which won't count towards anything either.
