As the Q2 IHG Accelerate promotion is coming to an end on 31 August 2017, it is now possible to get in early and register for the upcoming Q3 Accelerate promotion (valid for stays between 01 September 2017 to 31 December 2017) for a chance to earn a lot of points. In case you do not remember what this promotion is, it is basically a set of tasks that are tailored to your IHG Rewards Club account based on stay history and elite status. Completing these tasks will trigger an achievement bonus (which is usually quite impressive) that could potentially earn you a lot of IHG Rewards Club points!
Remember this is also a good way to trigger your book direct bonus (assuming your account is eligible for this promotion - click HERE to find out) where you can easily earn 40,000 IHG Rewards Club points in just 3 stays. Doing this wisely may also complete your Q3 Accelerat challenges simultaneously.
I wouldn't say that my rewards for completing the challenges for the upcoming quarter are particularly attractive so I might actually skip it this time - I may however stay once in September just to trigger 4,000 bonus points and that Book Direct promotion.

If there was one sale that you have to look out for each year, it would have to be the Le Club AccorHotels Super Sale which offers up to 40% off (that's off the flexible rate and none of that fake discounts which OTAs offer) and it even gets you free breakfast if you are a Le Club AccorHotels member (free to sign-up!).
