The IHG Rewards Promotion for Q1 2019 is now open for registration – it's called “Free Nights Faster”.
This offer is fairly similar to previous IHG Accelerate promotions with the “gamification” and “member targeting” features. The gamification component let's you earn additional bonus points when you complete various tasks like staying at multiple brands or booking on the IHG app. The targeted component comes into play because some members receive better offers than others.
Details of the IHG Rewards Q1 2019 Promotion:
- Register here, before March 15, 2019.
- Stay at any IHG property from January 15th until April 30th 2019
- Earn at least 40,000 IHG Rewards bonus points by completed the required tasks
IHG Rewards Club Promotion: Accelerate
My offer from the IHG Rewards Q1 2019 Promo:
My offer was fairly consistent with what others have been receiving. If you stay at IHG properties, it should be very easy to get an extra 16,000 bonus points out of this promotion. The challenge (at least for business travelers) is the 4th offer and final bonus which requires staying 3 weekends.
1,000 points after downloading and booking a stay from the app.
2,000 points after you stay 4 nights.
3,000 points after you stay at two brands.
4,000 points after you stay 3 weekends.
10,000 points after completing 3 of the 4 offers
20,000 points after completing 4 of the 4 offers.
My offer provides the opportunity to earn 40,000 bonus points. It looks like I have the bare minimum bonus point opportunity, as I have seen others with the option to earn close to 60,000 bonus points.
