INSIDER SECRET: If you have the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card and the older IHG Rewards Club Select version of the card (no longer available to new applicants) you can stack the cards’ perks. So you can get your 4th night free on points bookings and a 10% rebate (up to 100,000 points per year).
When latest IHG promotion launched not every account was eligible, but now it looks like more people are being targeted for the summer 2019 Accelerate promotion. Each account is still being offered a unique deal with specific goals and bonuses.
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.

I don’t know what the new round of targeted offers look like because I was eligible for the previous deal. If you were included in this round let me know what your offer is in the comments.
Here is what I am eligible for:
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.
