IHG Accelerate 2018 Q1 Offers Are Now Available For Sign Up [Now With 10k Points For Staying At Kimpton For Everybody]

Update 02/12: Kimpton bonus is available to everybody now. It’s mentioned on the landing page of the accelerate offer found here.

Update 02/07: Some people are seeing a new offer added to their accelerate offer where you receive an additional 10,000 points for staying at any Kimpton property before April 30th. Check your account to see if you’re targeted.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • IHG’s Accelerate promotion for Q1 of 2018 is now live. You’ll receive bonus IHG points for completing different requirements, you’ll also receive an additional bonus for completing a set number of the tasks

The Fine Print

  • Valid for stays between January 1st and April 30th, 2018

Our Verdict

My offer isn’t very exciting, so this won’t change any of my booking behavior. This is a bit disappointing as I actually need to book a lot of hotels for stays during this period, but that likely just means I’ll get to end up staying at some more interesting non chain hotels instead. Feel free to share your own offers in the comments, as well as whether you’re going to go for it or not.

Very annoying and found this out the hard way. I had an offer to do a points + cash night and get points yet they still refused to give me the points!!! Ridiculous!

Not too bad. Could get 32,000 points after 2 stays.

No good offers upcoming for me and DW, but we got the bonuses for the promo ending this month!

Looks a bit rough for me. 8 nights, 4 consecutive nights, 3 different HIE, use my IHG cc.

58.5K for five nights at four brands plus one Bonus Points Package. Not a bad promo this time. I’ve had better, but the last couple have been really bad for me.

30k for 3 nights, 3 stays at Holiday Inn, one weekend stay, 2 nights using Your Rate = 4 nights minimum.

I think I got the starter offer since I’ve never used it before? I’ve had both the IHG card and rewards account for a year. It’s also the same as my current 2017 Q4 offer, which I’m on track to completing, so hopefully I’ll get a better 2018 Q2 offer because of that.

I already have a kimpton stay set for before Apr 30 and I got the offer. 🙂

So-so offer. 50k for completing various stays (5 nights total, 2 nights at Holiday Inn, stay 1 night anywhere, do 1 cash + points stay)… I can essentially bang this all out for 5 nights.

Terrible. Stay 18 Nights nights for 34,000pts. Refer a friend in addition to friend staying w/in 60 days of referral for an additional 5,000pts. I laughed and closed the screen.

Not as good as my last one. And I miss the Achievement Bonus because I misread the terms (wrong family brand for one stay 🙂

Now for the real challenge: Find a Kimpton hotel where I would be willing to pay the cash price…

+1 (bingo — the little “secret” bloggers are generally loathe to mention, much less document — that IHG and Kimpton in particular have been jacking up their average rates — big time.)

Doc,

Do rewards stays count as a stay?
