IHG Rewards has now posted details of its new Accelerate promotion for 1Q 2018 and I thought I take you through the headline terms and conditions, what Joanna and I have been offered this time around and how I'm approaching this Accelerate promotion.
IHG Rewards has released details of its Fall Accelerate Promotion and, as usual, the promotional offers differ from member to member. I've been looking forward to seeing the details of this promotion for some time as my last few Accelerate offer have been less than stellar - it's like IHG knows how I love to game its offers :) As with previous IHG Accelerate promotions the details of the bonuses that can be earned will vary from account to account (you'll have to log in to IHG Rewards to see what you've been offered) but, from what I've seen, the weakest bonus on offer appears to be around 32,000 points.
IHG Rewards has brought back its very popular Accelerate Promotion as the Fall bonus for its members. Last quarter, US-based IHG Rewards members had their own, slightly different, version of Accelerate compared to the rest of the world but this time it would appear that everyone is in the same boat. As with previous IHG Accelerate promotions the details of the bonuses that can be earned will vary from account to account (you'll have to log in to IHG Rewards to see what you've been offered) but the minimum bonus appears to be 30,000 points.
The IHG Accelerate promotion is back for the second time in 2016 and will run from 1 June to 31 August 2016. There is a change to past IHG Accelerate promotions in that it would appear that this promotion is open to only those whose account is registered outside the Americas. IHG members living in the Americas already have an ongoing promotion - Share Forever.
It's a dangerous time of year for miles and points enthusiasts as the period between Christmas and New Year brings, for some, a little time off work but with not that much to do. The kids have all had their presents...and broken them, the food has been purchased and eaten, the family has come and gone and there's not that much going on in the travel world....so a little bit of boredom sets in. And boredom is when mistakes start to creep in.
IHG (the hotel group that owns chains such as InterContinental, Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza) has announced details of their first quarter 2016 promotion - IHG Accelerate 2016. I've written about IHG's Accelerate promotions before (Can You Maximize The IHG “Accelerate” Promotion?) and shown how I got excellent value from once such promotion earlier this year (3 “Free” Nights in a 5-Star Hotel – How I Maximized An IHG Promotion) so it's always exciting when a new Accelerate promotion comes around.
A post on one of the larger Miles & Points blogs caused a bit of ruckus last week when it appeared to suggest (advise?) that existing IHG Rewards members should open up second accounts to take advantage of a generous promotion open only to new members. This was bad advice on a number of levels but it was one particular thing that annoyed me most.
Yesterday I wrote a post that explained how I planned and booked a 3-night trip to Amsterdam, at a 5-star hotel, using one of IHG's promotions....
One of the things I said I'd do in this blog is share how I put some of my trips together, how much they...
