2,000 FREE IHG Rewards points just for joining

http://www.ihg.com/hotels/us/en/glob...lmentbonus2000

A lot of us are ineligible since we're already IHG Rewards members. I wonder if the FT community can come up with any creative ways to benefit from this offer

Assuming she hasnt accumulated any points yet, just have her create a new accout with the link using a different email address and then ditch the old account

Thanks for the heads up. I signed up for IHG rewards earlier today. I just went back in and checked and no miles posted yet. I'll monitor and post back here when they populate so others know how long the wait time is.

I created an account for my wife then emailed IHG to ask when the points would be awarded. They replied that the points will be awarded at the end of the promo on December 7, 2014.

I had to call the 800 number (1 800 465 4329) just now to get them to post the points, which they did no questions asked. When I first signed up for the promo I emailed them and asked when the points would post. I was told 12/7. I checked today (12/10) and no points had been posted. So I called about the status, and the customer service rep credited the 2k points to my account while I was on the phone. I was actually able to see them post to my account before I hung up. The entire call lasted about 45 seconds. I got the sense that I wasn't the first person who called about this today.
