Q3 accelerate promotions
 
Has anyone seen anything about the Q3 promotions and when they will begin?

It depends on what you mean by Q3. The "Q3" promo is on right now, but not worldwide I think. and it's not called Accelerate.:

If it's like past years, the next Accelerate will be mostly in Q4 (with just a couple weeks of Q3 in it), starting in mid-September. But nothing's been announced yet (and it may not be announced until a couple weeks before it begins), so it's all a guess

Because your crystal ball has told you what the Hilton and Radisson promos will be?

During August we should start hearing about autumn promos...

For August if you don’t reside in the US and are on track for IHG status next year switching isn’t a bad idea if Hilton or Radissons promos work for you.

Hiltons promo finishes early September and Radisson is end of August so they will more than likely all be announcing new promos around the same time then you can decide who gets what in the final third of the year.

I, too, am anxiously awaiting my Q3 Accelerate promo details as I have a 3nt stay in Paris to book. Hoping it's not brand-centric as I have a particular HI in mind. Last summer my Q3 Accelerate email arrived on 8/15 so I expect it will be sometime next week.

I have a 9nt stay in Düsseldorf and have been delaying my booking as well.. I hope the Q3 promo is generous as it tends to be a slow season

You can always book a refundable rate now and rebook if you like the terms of the Q3 promo later.

When you book the stay is irrelevant for Accelerate. Except for the "book with app" target.

True.

Also, it's hard to get the most out of a promo prior to knowing its rules @:-)

Well I can not wait so I booked with Hilton for my later stays in August/September/October/November.

"book with app" is not an issue at all since you can always book with app. I don't think they had requirement that you have to book on website. However, they may require you book with bonus point package.

Book with the app is the one that is always an issue as it's the one that normally requires the actual reservation to be made within the promotion dates.
