10K Every 10 Nights Promotion - IHG Milestone Bonuses 2021 (Exclusive)

2021 Milestone Bonus: Earn 10k points every 10 nights: From 1/1/2021-12/31/2021.
2021 Milestone Bonus: Stay 40 nights, earn 30k additional bonus points. From 1/1/2021-12/31/2021.

Offer Terms: https://www.ihg.com/content/us/en/de...ilestone-bonus
Target Recipients: Not disclosed, based on a variety of factors. Currently, some Platinum cardholders and Spire Elites have reported receiving this offer.
Applicable Markets: USA, Singapore confirmed on this forum so far.
Points granted from this promotion are NOT elite qualifying
Reward Nights and Free Nights DO NOT COUNT toward this milestone bonus.
Offer can be combined with other promotions, including the new 2k Every 2 Nights Promotion!

Other notes. In December 2020, some IHG members received the above information on the app, known as 2021 Milestone Bonuses. As of 1/1/2021, recipients were automatically enrolled. As of 1/15/2021 Offer was named 10K Every 10 Nights, with the bonus at 40 Nights increased from 20k to 30k Points.

My own thoughts. I believe they are targeting anyone who shows likelihood of doing 40 nights or an equivalent in spend. After all, the carrot is fattest at 40 nights. Personally I did 32 nights in 2020, which could be a key factor.

Isn't this just a copy of standard Hilton Honors promotions? I value IHG at least double HH points so will take it but miss the Accelerate scavenger hunts that usually generated a weekend trip to maximize.

Unlimited Double Points 2020. Expired.

Any thoughts or exciting plans?
Exciting? Well let's see: for 40 nights, the earn is 60K points, worth $300. A $7.50 rebate per IHG night. That's no barrel of monkeys, but it's worth considering if you're a true road warrior.

My husband has a set of milestone offers in his account (see below). He hardly uses his account, Platinum by virtue of his credit card. We mostly stay on my account (Spire Ambassador, ~50 nights this past year). No offer for me. I mean Iím not mad - this is a truly terrible incentive.

Nothing for me so far. But I don't expect any IHG stays in the first week or two of 2021.

No,I am Ambassador as well and have not offered it. Could is be depending in which region your account is registered?

Not that it is a huge bonus, but I'll try to understand if there is a pattern (if there is one at all and it is not one of the typical random things on IHG's side)
