IHG Accelerate is Back with Targeted Offers

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

IHG is back with offering another Accelerate promotion, and like every other time, the offer that you personally receive will be targeted to your specific account. With that being said, it seems like everyone is eligible for some sort of promotion, some might just be better than others. This promotion will run May 15 through August 31, 2017.

To see your unique promotion, you’ll need to register here. You’ll have to complete specific tasks to earn bonus points for every eligible stay (make sure to read the terms per task to ensure your rate qualifies).

My personal offer is somewhat okay. It will actually only require five nights to earn the 43,000 points. Not something I am personally going to take advantage of, but depending on your travel and the tasks required it might be a great offer for you! My husband’s offer actually requires a ton of nights to earn even less points, which was ridiculous!

Keep in mind, “tasks” can overlap, so one stay might check check multiple boxes. With my offer, as long as I complete 5 nights (do not need to be consecutive), have one of the nights happen prior to the end of June, and use my IHG credit card to pay for one of the nights, I’ll earn the maximum amount of points. Or, just completing a one night stay by June 30th will get me 7,000 points. Completing mattress runs most likely will not pay out, even on a cheap cheap stay.

As I mentioned above, I will not be taking advantage of this promotion. I personally do not have any planned stays during this time.

Anyone else targeted for another offer?

Thanks to View from the Wing for letting me know about the announcement of this promotion!

  1. My offer is exactly the same. I’ll at least do the one night/stay for 7,000 points(reimbursed business). Have to see what pops up to decide about the other four nights.

  2. Mine seems generous.
    One night: 2500 pts
    One nights P&C: 3600 pts
    Use IHG card to book a night: 1500 pts
    Stay 5 nights: 10,000 pts

    Do 3/4: 22,400 pts
    Stay before June 30th: 3000 pts.

    If I read this correctly, this appears to be a one night stay before June 30 using my IHG card with cash & points for 33,000 points?
    I see a Holiday Inn Express for $79/nt down the street.

    • @geoff – that is a great offer. Just check to see if the first requirement needs to be a paid reservation. It might be you need two nights/stays. One night with paid and one night with P&C, although not sure.

      • I agree. I assume by “check” you mean call IHG? The t&c’s for this promo are kinda boilerplate.
        As an aside, their agents can give conflicting info.

  3. Got this:
    Thank you for going the distance with our Accelerate promotion. The promotion came to an end as of August 31, 2017, but don’t lose your momentum, there are more opportunities to earn toward the rewards you deserve.

    ??anyone else?

  4. I have a stay where I am checking in on August 29th and checking out on September 1st. Will that still count for this promotion?
