IHG is out with their accelerate promotion for Q1 2018 which runs from Jan 01 to April 30. Here is the link to register for the offer. As earlier quarter offers the baseline offer is to earn 30,000 IHG points by completing various stay challenges/activities. Below is the snap shot of the baseline offer.
As you can see the standard baseline offer requires minimum of 4 night stay to earn 30,000 bonus IHG points. Interestingly, if you notice you can earn easy 500 bonus IHG points by just downloading and logging in the IHG App on your mobile device. This is good enough for extending the validity of your IHG points without any stay activity on your account.
Alternatively folks have been targeted with much better promotional offer based on their stay pattern and thus can earn much higher amount of bonus IHG points. IHG routinely lists certain properties for redemption for just 5k points. Here is the last list being published. So you can certainly score some cheap stays. Also IHG has points+cash feature which can be useful for generating points at ~0.5 cents/points. You can find more details on a very old post here.
So, go ahead and register for this offer even if you do not plan to stay and see if there are any easy bonus IHG points available for grabs.
