From May 1 to August 31, 2019, IHG is running its summer 2019 Accelerate promotion.  This is just like the other iterations of the Accelerate IHG promotion.

Each account is targeted with specific tasks you must complete to earn bonus points.  I have the opportunity to earn up to 53,200 IHG points and my wife can earn up to 75,400 points.

In the past, all IHG members have been targeted with an offer under this promotion.  But this time around it looks like some accounts may not be eligible.  I’m not sure if this is a technical issue or if IHG is only targeted specific people with this promotion.

If you aren’t targeted for this promotion, you could still stock up on IHG points with the welcome offer on the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.  Check out our full review of the IHG credit card to learn more.

Earn lots of bonus points with this IHG promotion and then use them to book award nights at fancy InterContinental hotels

 IHG Promotion: 2019 Summer Accelerate

Register By:  June 18, 2019

Travel Dates:  May 1 to August 31, 2019

Important Terms:

  • Certain rates such as nights booked through online 3rd-party websites and reward nights won’t qualify
  • No bonus points will be awarded for stays prior to registration

Promotion Link:  IHG Accelerate 2019

The promotion is valid for stays at these hotels:

Since each offer is different, you’ll have to take a look to see if it’s worth going out of your way to complete.  With the offer I was targeted for I could potentially earn the full 53,200 after only two 2-night weekend stays.

Granted I’d have to do a bit of planning to make it work, but staying at 2 different IHG brands on 2 weekends is pretty realistic.  If I completed my offers in only 4 nights I’d be earning an extra 13,300 IHG points per night.

My wife’s offer has a bunch more hurdles to jump through.  To earn the full 75,400 bonus IHG points, she’d have to stay a minimum of 5 nights at 3 different IHG brands and 2 of those stays would have to be 2-night weekend stays.  Also, at least one of those nights would need to happen in June and she’d have to pay for at least one stay with her IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card (no longer available to new applicants).

If she earned the full bonus by staying only 5 nights, she’d be earning an extra 15,080 IHG points per night.  That’s a solid return, but you’d have to do some dancing to get it to work out that well.

What offer were you targeted for this time around?

I just received my accelerate bonus offer, and it’s the simplest one I’ve gotten yet: double points on all paid stays after the first, up to 40,000 points. Maybe that’s a slightly smaller payoff than the best offers, but I like that it kicks in with very little effort and doesn’t require a lot of planning or multiple brand combinations, or stays on specific days. So I’m good.

Awesome! Gotta love it when the offer terms are simple 🙂

Thanks for sharing!

If I have a 3 night stay (May 13-16) that I booked before the promo started, will it still credit towards the promo?

Hi Jayson,

One of the terms states:

-No bonus points will be awarded for stays prior to registration

So it doesn’t sound like that would work, unfortunately.

So if it’s blank when I click on it. Does that mean I don’t have any offers? I guess I’m not staying at IHG again this quarter.

No offers in my account. Bummer! ~SH

Bummer 🙁 Fingers crossed for next time!

Good article, but I don’t think the section I pasted below is accurate as you can only book two nights max with PointBreak thus not being able to take advantage of the 4th night free with the credit card promo.

If one of the PointBreaks hotels work for your travels you could actually spend 4 nights at a 5,000 point per night PointBreaks hotel for just 15,000 points total. That’s just $75 for 4 nights or ~$19 per night!

Hi Mike,

The PointBreaks site says you can “only book two PointBreaks® Reward Nights reservations per hotel.”

The way it’s worded is confusing, but you can actually make up to 2 reservations per hotel, but those stays can be for multiple nights. I hope that helps.

Oh okay, thanks clarifying. Agreed it is confusing and I’ve only used the PointsBreak promo once or twice, but both times was just for one night each. So to confirm you can make a reservation for as many nights as you want (or as long as there is availability)? For example, I could make two separate reservations at the same hotel and one for 7 nights duration and the other 4 nights and each night is only 5,10, or 15k points depending on the hotel? If so that is great news.

That’s right, as long as there are available award nights the length of the stay isn’t limited!
