The final installation of the ever-popular Accelerate promotion is now back for Q4 - valid for eligible stays between 01 September 2019 and 31 December 2019, IHG Rewards Club members will be able to accrue and trigger bonus points on stays when completing a specific set of challenges. If you are new to hotel loyalty programs, IHG Rewards Club typically publishes a tailored set of challenges for each member - completing these will trigger massive point bonuses which can be very attractive!
As always, registration for IHG Reward Club's latest Accelerate promotion is necessary before your bonus points are triggered - all registrations must be completed by 18 October 2019 but your points will post for eligible stays until 31 December 2019 (just sign-up now for this promotion in case you forget about it later!).
Most of my Accelerate offers this year have been rather lackluster and this quarter's challenges are not too attractive for me either. My account has been targeted with three main challenges and completing all three will trigger an achievement bonus of 13,600 points. However, in order to complete all three offers, I will have to consume a minimum of five nights across three brands - this works out to just 8,160 bonus points per night which is not terrible but not exceedingly great as well.
The minimum number of nights I have to stay is 3 in order to even trigger any bonus but the good thing about my set of offers is that I can actually trigger two offers from three nights (separate properties per night). Completing the bare minimum for this set of Accelerate offers will trigger 17,200 bonus points (approximately 5,733 points per night) which is once again, not an extremely attractive draw for me personally.
