I have some points expiring in a month, hopefully this will keep them active! Thanks Will

These will post as bonus points and do not extend expiration. You can go to redeem and choose digital rewards. You then choose an ebook or song for a few points as possible. Many of the book are around 150 points and the songs are 300/400 points. The one I bought this week was “10 Breathtaking Salad Recipes” for 150 points and that useless spend will keep my points active for another year.

Sign up for their surveys. Easy 1000 points and it extends the life. Just did this last month. Takes only a few days to post.

I got to the IHG page after posting on twitter and just get a list of rules. How do you actually get your points? ::EDIT:: make sure you have adblock plus or similar disabled for IHG otherwise this won’t work.

Step 1. Post on Twitter or instagram and add the hashtags
Step 2. Go to the offer link above and click on the claim link. At the claim link log in to your twitter or instagram (may need to authorize them) and then you will get a form to fill – name, email, IHG number. Submit.

Quick 5k points for posting a picture of the zuck on a throwaway insta account, not bad.

Thanks. Done. Only weird thing was authorizing the third party to post on my Twitter. hmm.

Very common if you use twitter with third party apps

Can you explain what using Twitter with third-party apps means to us novices?

Odd. I posted 3 hours ago according to the rules but the link to claim the IHG points keeps showing me, “we couldn’t find a valid post from that account. If you already submitted a post with #HomeWithIHG $RewardsOffer 3ad and @IHGRewardsClub, try again in 15 minutes.”

Do I just keep trying?

RMuck

I agree, turning over your Twitter account that a third-party can access and change your profile and post tweets for you seems like a scam to me what am I missing

Terms also say, “A participant must follow @ihgrewardsclub and have a non-private Twitter/Instagram account to participate and maintain such non-private account for at least thirty (30) days after the Offer Period ends to be eligible.”

I followed them after I claimed my points. Hopefully that will still work.

Good find. Thanks.

And thanks Doc, and TPG.

It also says:

Claiming an Offer Item and Offer Item Details: Beginning approxima tely fifteen (15) minutes f ollowing the posting of a valid Submission, a participant must visit ihgrewardsclub.com/claimmypoints

Note: the system will take approximately fifteen (15) minutes to process a participant’s Submission, so a participant should wait at least fifteen (15) minutes before visiting the Website to claim a n Offer Item. A participant must click the link and claim the Offer Item by 11:59:59 PM ET on December 31, 2018 and while supplies last.

guess I’ll try again in 15 minutes just to be sure.

the points aren’t posting today for sure, per the terms. This is about registering your claim after the posting.

quoting from the t&c.
The approximate retail value of an Offer Item is 22 USD.
i guess they value their own points at .0045 🙂

And yet you can’t buy them for that cheap. Haha

You can easily buy them practically for that price (.005).. slightly higher, but close enough
