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.

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.
