A few months ago I told you about IHG’s summer Accelerate promotion.  But it’s coming to an end August 31, 2017.

The good news is, via View From the Wing, IHG has released the details of their newest IHG Accelerate promotion!

It will run from September 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017.   And some folks have been targeted for 80,000+ IHG points!

Here’s how to register for this deal.

You can now register for IHG’s latest Accelerate promotion.  So login to see how many extra points you can earn for stays between September 1, 2017, and December 31, 2017!

When you sign-up, you’ll get a customized offer with a number of tasks to complete to earn bonus IHG points.

IHG hotels include Candlewood SuitesCrowne PlazaEVEN HotelsHoliday InnHoliday Inn Club VacationsHoliday Inn ExpressHoliday Inn ResortsHotel IndigoIntercontinental Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites brand hotels.

Keep in mind, if you book through a 3rd-party sites like Orbitz, your stays will NOT count towards the deal.  You must book your stay directly through IHG.  And the tasks and total number of bonus IHG points you can earn depend on factors like how often you stay with IHG and your elite status.

Is This a Good Deal?

I always recommend registering for all promotions, even if you don’t think you’ll use them.  It’s free and easy to register, and you never know when a travel opportunity might pop up!

But depending on your particular offer, it may NOT make sense to stay at an IHG hotel just to earn bonus points.

Million Mile Secrets team member Joseph was offered up to 46,500 bonus IHG points for completing 6 tasks through the promotion:

He can pretty easily earn 26,500 IHG points with hotel stays he plans to make anyway.  But some of the tasks, like booking a stay in Europe, Asia, and Africa, are NOT worth it for him.  Because he doesn’t have upcoming travel plans in those places.

Others have reported being targeted to earn 80,000+ bonus IHG points with this promotion.  So register to see your offer, and then decide whether taking advantage of the deal makes sense for you!

Other Ways to Earn IHG Points

Link:   Chase IHG Card

There are plenty of easy ways to earn IHG points, too!

For example, you can buy points for cheap with the IHG Cash & Points trick.  Or you can apply for the Chase IHG card, which comes with a limited-time 80,000 IHG point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements.

You can read my review of the Chase IHG card here.

And don’t forget, you can stretch your IHG points even further by booking hotels on the latest IHG PointBreaks list.  Because you can reserve these hotels for just 5,000 IHG points per night!

Bottom Line

With IHG’s latest Accelerate promotion, you can earn bonus IHG points for completing tasks and stays at IHG hotels.  The deal is valid for stays between September 1, 2017, and December 31, 2017.  But you must book directly with IHG.

My offer is 94,700 points if I stay 29 nights, which is doable since I am on the road 16 nights a month. I wonder if Marriott or Hilton will do a fall promotion since I value their elite status more. It’s unfortunate that IHG doesn’t provide free breakfast for their highest tier.

Can you double dip on them? For example, I have stay once in Sept, book and pay for a stay on my IHG card, and stay at 2 Holiday Inns. So if I stay at a Holiday Inn in Sept that I pay for on my IHG card, did I meet two and a half of them with 1 stay?

Also, do you think staying at the 2 Holiday Inns includes Holiday Inn Express hotels??

Yes, you can stack the offers. Your stay in September will allow you to get points for the first two offers. Also, HI are different from HIE hotels.

Thank you for the reply. I did end up calling IHG to get answers. Sucks HIE doesn’t count.

We registered for the last accelerate promotion in preparation for a road trip. By interchanging paid nights with rewards nights my husband’s IHG points balance doubled. He also paid for our stays with the IHG credit card and got 5 extra points for every dollar spend. Such a deal.

I’m glad to see another accelerate promotion because we are planning another road trip!
