IHG Q2/Q3 2019 ‘Accelerate’ Promotion: Make Every Stay Count

Update 6/27/19: Looks like more people are targeted for this deal. Must register by August 17th, 2019. Not sure why IHG did it like this, I guess they wanted to split test to determine how much bookings increased when the Accelerate promo was live?

Update 5/1/19: Reposting as the offer should be showing up for people who weren’t able to register before. Looks like some people are still seeing an error, but might be due to being enrolled in other promotions?

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • IHG has launched the latest Accelerate offer and it’s now available for sign up. Stays from May 1st until August 31st, 2019 will qualify. You must register by June 18th, 2019. Everybody will have a unique offer that requires completing different requirements.

The Fine Print

  • You must be an IHG® Rewards Club member and must register your member number in advance to participate in the promotion (“Promotion”). Upon Registration (as defined below), members will be presented with the opportunity to earn bonus points upon completion of all offers presented.
  • You must register for the promotion by June 18, 2019. By clicking “one click registration” you are registering for the promotion and agreeing to receive IHG Rewards Club marketing communications and the terms and conditions of the Campaign and Privacy Statement.
  • Members will be awarded bonus points listed for each individual Promotional offer (“Offer”) after completing the requirements of each individual Offer.
  • Each Offer must be completed between May 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019 (both dates inclusive) (“Registration”).
  • Only members that qualify for this promotion as defined by IHG Reward Club’s terms and conditions can participate in this promotion. Registered members are not allowed to participate in concurrent campaigns.

Our Verdict

Feel free to share your offers in the comments below. IHG Accelerate is actually one of the few hotel promotions where sometimes I’ll actually change my booking behavior because the promotions can be extremely generous, unfortunately that isn’t the case for me this time but fingers crossed others get some better offers. Hilton recently announced a new promotion as well. If you’re getting an error message, don’t worry too much as a lot of others are getting a similar message we will repost when it’s working for everybody.

Longtime IHG member. Keep getting a “You’re not eligible” message. Not sure if it’s an error or Accelerate is targeted now.

Same here. Anybody know what might be the reason?

Same thing for me

I didnt mention that I did get that error first. Regardless its shows up as enrolled in the offers area however you cant see the details of the offer. The only rational reason I can think of is that they are rolling it out in waves and we jumped the gun on enrollment.

I got the same error. My earnings preference is not airline miles (didn’t even know that was an option). New browser window (incognito) still doesn’t show any promo offer details. No email confirmation yet.

Same here. I need a room for Wednesday night in Des Moines and was just going to get a cheap Wyndham or Airbnb, but maybe I can use this to knock out one of the requirements … if I knew what they were.

Used your link, tried my wife’s credentials and got this: “Oh, no! Based on your current earning preference, you aren’t eligible for this offer.” What pray tell is “current earning preference?”

Airline miles rather than IHG points

Try again. I got that screen too. Use a new browser window or restart the browser.

Only 2 days left to book uncapped IHG free chase night, if you have old IHG chase credit card.
I just booked mine for a July stay thru a rep.

Pretty sure that isn’t true. Last cert issued is uncapped, so I still have one with 10+ months left to book it.

Newbie

The uncapped free night has to be issued before May 1, this is what I found out. I have booked already for july, if you are correct i may cancel and book a better one. After May 1, only 40,000 points room can be booked.
Please verify, I might be wrong.

You are wrong, sorry. The certs issued before May 1st 2019 are uncapped. And they stay uncapped for the whole year (as you have a year to use them). The next cert issued (after May 1st 2019, which for you will be in April 2020) will be capped at 40K.

Mine was issued on 04/02/2019, and I used it in the beginning of June to book a night in October. Still uncapped. Even if cancel, you get it back and it will stay uncapped for the remainder of this certificate life.

I believe if you get the free night award by May 1 then you still have a year+ to use it at any hotel. It does not have to be booked by May 1.

I agree with Scott.

My account shows “Oh, no! Based on your current earning preference, you aren’t eligible for this offer” while my wife’s shows “We’re sorry, but you’re not eligible for this campaign”. Somehow the offer was added to my account but I can’t view the offer as the page is just showing an ad picture

Oh, no! Based on your current earning preference, you aren’t eligible for this offer. But here are others you might like: View other IHG® Rewards Club offers now.

I saw it says “Registered members are not allowed to participate in concurrent campaigns.” So maybe since I completed some of the last promo (ends April 30) that makes my account not not eligible until May 1st? I will check it tomorrow (may 1st).

Yep the bonus showed up for my accounts today! 🙂 Not quite as good of offers as last time but still a few are OK.

Worth checking to see if accelerate promo offer is in your account again. Previously mine wasn’t showing but it is now.

I can see mine today. But it sucks. Double points after first stay.

Double points after the first stay up to 40k. That’s it. Just the one offer. Odd.
