People jump through crazy hoops just to earn points, and IHG has invented an addictive game to get rewards club members to earn 1000’s of extra bonus points, in ways that may not even be defined as crazy. IHG Accelerate has been retitled to “Make Every Stay Count”, and the new offers for travel from September through December 31st are now live. There’s only one way to find out your personal offer.

Intercontinental GenevaIHG Accelerate – Make Every Stay Count

IHG’s latest promotion offers bonus points for completing a variety of activities related to the IHG brand. Opportunities range from trying new IHG Hotel brands to booking weekend stays, extending stays a bit longer and more.

Each member of the loyalty program received different offers based on their IHG stay history, or lack thereof, and many IHG Rewards Club members will find opportunities to earn between 35,000-50,000 extra points, in addition to what you’d usually earn from IHG hotel stays. Even if you’re not yet an IHG Rewards member, you can sign up and you’ll still find an offer of some sort. You can register for a free IHG Rewards account here.

To check your personal bonus offer and get started, you need to head to the IHG Accelerate “Make Every Stay Count” promo page, and log in. You can check your offer here for UK members, and here for US members. Once logged in, you’ll find your new “Make Every Stay Count” (lame title) offer and figure out which challenges, if any (or all) make sense for you to achieve between September 1st and December 31st. That’s right. These offers are live to browse now, but only count for travel starting September 1st.

Best Ways To Spend IHG Rewards Points

IHG Rewards Points have some great uses, particularly with the Intercontinental and Kimpton brand of hotels, where you can save $100’s per night by redeeming points rather than paying steep cash rates. This new IHG promotion is a great way to “accelerate” your way to enough points to actually cash in a free night at a luxury hotel somewhere where you really want to go.

  1. I’m getting nothing. There’s a box at the top with the following text/link: “We appreciate your loyalty. Please see IHG® Rewards Club offers available now.” The Register button is grayed out, and clicking it brings me back to the top of the page. I’m guessing this is only for those who actually stay at IHG properties.

  2. I think they only give nice offer to those who’re not active.
    My offer is so terrible.

    Stay at 5 IHG Hotels only get 2,200 points
    Stay 4 weekend(s) get 7.000 points

    I have to make myself inactive with IHG in order to take back those nice offers lol

    1. I bet you’re a good customer then. Ive heard a few 95,000 bonuses, but most of these people hardly ever stay at IHG. Not a great way to reward your loyalty!

  3. Thanks for posting this. I logged in and was offered up to 40,000 bonus. I’ll need to one stay of four nights, three weekends including a Saturday night and stay at 2 different IHG hotels. There’s a bonus for hitting three challenges and a bigger bonus (20,000 points) if I do all four challenges. I registered for the loyalty card recently and haven’t earned any points yet.
