IHG (formerly Priority Club) started a new promotion in the last quarter of 2013 whereby if you complete certain stay challenges, you would get substantial bonus points. Each person had a tailored offer and the points varied from person to person. My offer was 64,20o total bonus points for completing all offers, and I was able to do it all in just 4 nights. This is in addition to the regular points I was already getting for the hotel stay. Here is the break down of what my Big Win promotion offer was:
Stay 1: 2 nights at a Holiday Inn in Chicago (used for Chicago Seminars)
Stay Points: 19,170
Credit Card Points: 1,005
Total Points: 20,170
Stay 2: 2 nights at Crown Plaza in LA (mattress run)
Stay Points: 23,571
Credit Card Points: 990
Total Points: 24,561
Big Win Points: 64,200
Grand Total Points: 108,931
So for about $400 I have enough points for 2 nights at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand which is going for $450+ Euro a night during high season which is a great trade off!
IHG is continuing their Big Win promotion for the next quarter. Each person has a customized offer which can be checked here.
I was offered 99,800 total points if I complete 4 offers which I could do in 6 nights. These points would be in addition to the regular points I would earn from the stay and through credit card spend. The stays have to be completed between and inclusive of 1/1/2014 and 4/30/2014. I’ve registered for this promotion but not sure if this would be mattress run worthy. I do have some business stays coming up so I would have to be strategic in planning out the stays since the offers require different brand stays.
What have you received? Will you be taking advantage of this offer?
My offers are as follows:
Stay a total of 4 nights – 8,000
Stay at 2 different IHG brands – 16,000
Stay 2 Saturday nights – 8,000
Stay at 2 Holiday Inn Express hotels – 8,000
Stay at 2 Holiday Inn hotels – 8,000
Complete all offers – 48,000
Any ideas on how to complete my offers in the least amount of nights? Thanks!
Stay 2 weekend nights at HI, and 2 weekend nights at HIExp. They are 2 different brands so you can do this in 4 nights.
