IHG is one of the first company out there who decided to gamify the loyalty program and make members earn their points by completing multiple stays fitting within the program. However, for me, last 2 promotions were so bad that I decided that they are no fun and didn’t give single night benefit to IHG till now. This time around, the promotion is valid for stays between May 1 and July 31, 2018.

Being point and miles enthusiast, we want to pay our dime where we get the most benefit from our dimes. Why would I pay money to the brand who didn’t want my loyalty in a good way? To make matter worse, there is not really a big upside on becoming IHG Platinum member as they don’t entitle you to Suite room anyway. 

To access your customized offer, follow the link and register for the promotion. The promotion offers a minimum of 30,000 bonus IHG points to new accounts, but your mileage may vary. The tasks given to you are applicable only on qualifying rates, which means usual revenue rates and not stuff like crew rates or friends & family rates.

This time, IHG finally saw that they needed to motivate me with a better promotion and not give me a shitty promotion.

Basically, I need to stay with Holiday Inn 3 times out of which 2 times I have to stay in North America, South America, Central America, Caribbean, Greater China (China Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan), Europe. I need to book both the stays via the app. 

Long story short -3 (one night) Stays in Holiday Inn in Europe booked via their app would give me 59,000 points. If I add 1 of those in may, I add 1500 points to the kitty which as of now I am not sure that I am doing it. But 3 nights in Holiday inn is doable. 

BTW, the offer is compoundable and I can add 1 More stay in the Intercontinental hotel. I get to benefit 71K more points. This if combined with PointsBreak promotion could easily be 10 nights benefits. Basically making 3 nights in holiday inn and 1 night in Intercontinental (4 nights) gets me 10 nights benefit, which is extremely sweet deal.
