Time is running out to earn an award night at almost any IHG hotel with the IHG Priceless Surprises promotion!

Entries must be postmarked by February 15, 2016 (next Monday).  For the price of stamps and envelopes, you’ll win enough IHG points to stay at nearly any IHG hotel in the world.  

Last Chance 56 To Stay At Almost Any IHG Hotel
By Entering the IHG Priceless Surprises Promotion, You Could Earn Nearly Enough IHG Points for a Stay at the Gorgeous InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa!

I’ll show you how to enter!

Here’s How to Enter – Get Your Pens Ready!

Link:   IHG Priceless Surprises Rules

With the IHG Priceless Surprises Promotion, you can win 500 to 1 million IHG points per entry!  And you can enter up to 94 times (via mail-in or stays).  So if you submit all 94 entries and win 500 points each time, you’ll earn 47,000 IHG points!

That’s almost enough for a night at any IHG hotel, even top resorts like the Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa.  Emily and I stayed here where an overwater bungalow could cost over ~$1,000 per night!

Yep, 94 entries is a lot!!!  Especially when you consider you’ll have to handwrite and mail them all separately!

But you can ice your hand on 1 of those fruity frozen drinks with an umbrella when you’re lounging on the beach in Bora Bora! 😉

To qualify, you must be an IHG member (it’s free to sign-up) and register for the promotion before you enter.

Each entry should be on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper and include (hand-printed):

  • Your full name
  • Complete mailing address
  • Day and evening phone numbers
  • Valid email address
  • IHG member number
  • The 1st 6 digits of your MasterCard (don’t worry, that will only tell what type of card it is)
  • Date of birth

IHG will send you an email with a link to play the online game, once they receive your entries.  I found mine in my spam folder.

You’ll wind up spending ~$46 on postage and ~$10 for envelopes and paper.  But that’s a small price to pay for 47,000 IHG points (or more!).

Just remember your entries must be postmarked by February 15, 2016.  You can check out the full terms and conditions for more details.

If you don’t have time for this kind of endeavor, there’s an easier way to earn IHG points.  When you sign-up for the Chase IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card and complete the minimum spending, you’ll earn 60,000 IHG points and a $50 statement credit.

Emily and I don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always tell you about the best deals!

Good luck!  Let us know how many IHG points you win!

mailed 94 entries the week of February 8th. No emails received from IHG/Mastercard. Are they that far behind in digging through the mountain of entries?

@Brian, thanks for the info, I probably should have read the rules a little more thoroughly. I’ve got about 22 plays left, I’ve already gotten 5 prizes from group B (1 for 5,000, 1 for 2,000 and 3 for 1,000), my wife got 5 for 1,000. Hoping to get something from Group A 😉

Yes there is a limit.

“Limit: One (1) prize

from Group A and five (5) prizes from Group B prize per person.”

Group A are the major prizes and basically any price with estimated value of $600 or more (which probably has to do with fact they have to report prizes of $600 or more to IRS).

Group B includes items that are under $600 or no estimated value, and include prizes such as free night stay at any IHG Hotel, a $50 prepaid mastercard, and all the point prizes except the Million Points prize, and what’s in category C . And there is only 1 category C prize which is the 500 points (and minimum prize that one can get). So once you got 5 prizes of more than 500 points (category b), everything else will be 500 points unless you get a category A price.

I’m guessing a lot of people who get 94 entries have decent chance of getting 5 prizes of over 500 points. I’ve played 30 times so far and have already gotten 4 prizes over 500 points (2 were for 1,000 points and 2 were for 2,000 points).

I got 24 emails today and haven’t played then yet and i imagine i will get one more prize of more then 500 points and then all the rest will be 500 pretty much whatever floor i pick (unless by chance i get one of the Category A prizes). My hope is that one will be for 5,000 points or a free night and not just 1,000 points.

I expect to have 94 entries by the end of this and probably end with about 50,000 points when all is said done. (I sent 115 entries in case some are lost in the mail, i have backup entries as insurance, the last 4 were sent today from post office that has Sundays hours and i made sure all my entries sent in the last few days were manually postmarked by asking the USPS employees to do postmark them, but i didn’t want to give them more than 5 at a time)

Looks like they’re working overtime! Received 72 emails today, my wife received 77.

My wife got 2 non-winners so I will be inquiring about that.

Does anyone know if there is a limit to how many over 500 point prizes we can receive?

Do we need to have a return address on our envelope?
