IHG promotion: double points and accelerator (Sep 16 - Dec 31 [extended from Dec 16])

The link
https://www.ihg.com/content/gb/en/of...ublepoints2018

not sure if you need to meet double points before accelerator can be triggered. No doubt will cause more discussion.

16th September to 16th December.

good luck.

PS: There is a fun game for you guys.

1, Open the task page in a desktop computer and log in. It will show your tasks.
2, Right click your mouse and select 'PRINT PREVIEW'
3, A hidden list will open that is not shown on your tasks.


This hidden list consistence of 'Stay once get X,000 points' and 'Stay 3 times get X,000 points' thing.

Ok I have no idea if these hidden tasks is genuine or not. Whether it can be trigged or not. But it makes fun reading and makes your miserable promotion looks a little bit better.

My offers.

15k Double points from the second stay.
20,800 Stay at five brands
7,200 Stay at 3 Holiday Inn

Can't see me managing the five brands but you never know. I do have a four night fairly expensive stay at an IC planned which conveniently checks out on December 16th so I'm pretty happy with that

Quite a poor one for me too

Earn 27,800 total bonus points:

15,000 Earn double points on every stay, starting with your second stay, up to 15,000 bonus points.

5,600 Stay at 2 Holiday Inn® hotel(s)—including Holiday Inn Resort® and Holiday Inn Club Vacations®—and earn 5,600 bonus points.

3,200 Book 2 stay(s) with the IHG® App and earn 3,200 bonus points.

4,000 Earn 4,000 bonus points when you book 1 stay(s) of 4 or more consecutive nights.

It looks like the 15,000 double points is a total for the entire period of the promotion, rather than a maximum per stay.
From the terms
"members will be presented with the opportunity to earn at least 15,000 bonus points upon completion of all offers presented"

well at least 2 one night stay in intercontinental could net you 11200 points plus double points on the second stay. I would say it is a good offer. It gives you opportunities to concentrate on other hotel programmes

It is quite weak:

15k Double Points
19.2k Stay at 3 Brands
6.4k 8 stays using corporate rate

First one will be easy, the last one has never worked even though my company book me into a HI at least 3 times a month!

Quick question about the middle one, I have 2 brands booked in the period, I can't remember if reward stays count for this?

Just answered my own question by reading the T&Cs definition of a 'stay', I did look earlier but it mustn't have registered.

No. From T+Cs.

Bit late to entice my stays towards IHG.

WHAT !!!! I notice someone else has been offered twice the amount of points as I have for exactly the same target. Appalling discrimination from IHG :-(
If I had the higher offer I expect I would move some stays IHG's way.

But as it is I already have many (non-IHG) accomodation stays booked for the promotion period and needed to book them some time ago so I don't think I'll be getting these points or making any stays with IHG to be fair as it just isn't lucrative enough to switch stays or add little breaks.

Have 30+ nights booked in a couple of Hiltons already and 30+ nights of non-chain stays (villas, resorts, AirBnB etc...) Oct, Nov & Dec. So this was a bit late coming to entice my stays IHG's way.

My Offers
