IHG Q4 2019 ‘Accelerate’ Promotion: Make Every Stay Count

The Offer

Direct link to offer

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

The Fine Print

  • You must register for the promotion by 18 October 2019.
  • Each Offer must be completed between 1 September 2019 and 31 December 2019 (both dates inclusive) (“Registration”).

Our Verdict

Feel free to share the offer you received in the comments below, everybody has a personalized offer based on their stay history. IHG Accelerate is one of the few hotel promotions that makes me consider changing my bookings as completing most/all of the requirements can come with a nice big bonus. Usually when these offers are first released some people will get an error message, that usually gets fixed eventually. If that happens this time, don’t panic too much as we will repost when it’s working for everybody anyway.

Hmm… that link is taking me to the current offer (that ends in 8 days).

My offer is stay 1 night, earn 1k point… 1k point max. This is so bleak..

Same here. LOL. I used to get great accelerate offers but not anymore. Also, IHG used to be my go to hotel chain but in the last few years I have been shifting more and more business to other chains including Hilton and Radisson since they actually offer top tier elites breakfast.

Same here. These have been pretty lucrative for me in the past 🙁

Lamest one yet…. stay once and earn 1K pts. Yes. That’s it. Boo….

Offers are not what they used to be. Mines 18k total. 12k after 2 stays of 4 nights or more, 4500 for 1 point & cash stay, 1.5k to spend on IHG card.

1k is just insulting.

44,250 points total. 2 brands, stay 2 IC, 1 stay booked with Chase IHG credit card. Not bad if requirements overlap. Achievement bonus is 14,750.

39,000 points total: 1) 12,000 for two brands 2) 8,000 for two weekends (Sat+other) 3) 4,500 cash & points 4) 1,500 IHG credit card then 13,000 Achievement Bonus for all four
Not too shabby, can get it in 4 nights so ~$50/night earned value

29500 points
Stay at 2 brands and get 12,000 bonus points.
Stay at 2 Holiday Inn Express® hotel(s) and earn 8,000 bonus points.
Stay 2 weekend(s), including a Saturday night and another night, and earn 8,000 bonus points.
Book one stay at any IHG® hotel using your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card and earn 1,500 bonus points

Boring. And what’s up w/ staying a weekend, but specifically one night has to be Saturday.
For the places I’ll be going until the end of the promo, doing this will cost at least $1100. All for a measly 29,500 plus points earned for the stays.

We have a lot of upcoming stays. We will see who has the friendliest offers etc

Definitely one of the worst I’ve got:

Total 39,200

19,200 stay 5 brands
8,400 stay 2 CP
5,600 stay 2 weekends
4,500 stay with points & cash
1,500 stay with IHG card

Does points & cash stay count toward the other stays?

Dan

Mine is somewhat similar:

8,400 stay 2 brands
8,400 stay 2 CP
5,600 stay 2 weekends
4,500 stay with points & cash
1,500 stay with IHG card

I think I got a similar one for Q3. I tried to make a points & cash booking, and it seems that the cash is used to purchase the points and then make a all-point booking. I assume it won’t count as a stay then.

A points and cash stay will count as a stay only for your points and cash booking task, but it won’t count as a stay for any other task on your list.

Pretty bleak for me too:
Stay at 2 IC and receive 11,200 points
Stay 2 weekends and receive 5600 points
2 Stays of 4 or more consecutive nights receive 12,000 points
Total of 28,800 points
I might be able to get the first one only.

Josh

24,400 max

Stay 2 Brands – 8,400
1 Points and Cash – 4,500
1 Night paid by IHG Card – 1,500
Complete all 3 – 10,000

Overall not terrible, they’re all pretty attainable especially since I should be able to do it all in 2 nights (latter 2 should overlap with the first offer)
