IHG Rewards New 50,000 Point Bonus Promotion Goes Live Tomorrow

IHG Rewards has a new promotion going live tomorrow, and not all details are available yet, but you’ll be able to earn up to 50,000 bonus points.

The ‘Set Your Sights’ promotion is available to  all IHG Rewards Club members worldwide and is a great opportunity to kick start the new year with bonus offers for activity across IHG’s nine  hotel brands. The more offers members complete, the more rewards they can earn.

Registration for the promotion begins on Dec. 15 2014 >hereThe campaign book- and-stay period starts on Jan. 1, 2015. Once registered, >IHG Rewards Club members can begin earning their rewards through April 30, 2015.

50,000 points is enough for as many as 3 free nights, worth 2 free nights at most hotels, and covers a free night at the chain’s most expensive properties.

I value IHG Rewards Club points at $0.006 apiece so 50,000 points are worth ~ $300. (You can buy points at $0.007 apiece).

The website for the promotion isn’t live as of this writing, but I have a question out to IHG Rewards Club about what the earning structure will look like, e.g. how many nights or stays it will take to earn corresponding bonus points.

  1. One can only hope it’ll be better managed than their last ‘Into the Nights’ promo which was a complete disaster.

  2. If it’s some sort of tiered earning promo that once again screws current frequent guests like me I will be gone from the IHG program and I’ll take my 75+ IHG nights a year to another chain. I’m so sick of them trying to attract less frequent customers with the “stay 3 nights get 50,000 points” while the person with a ton of stays gets the “stay 28 nights and get 50,000 points” deal.

  3. I’m still so, so mad at them for the debacle of Into the Nights that it will take a miracle for me to change any of my travel patterns.

  4. My offer isn’t too bad, but it has either applying for a CC (which I don’t want to do) or booking a HI Club Vacations mini-package (I don’t want to go through some sort of timeshare presentation nonsense).

    So I won’t be getting the bigger points value at the end of the rainbow this time. I think a lot of people will balk at the HICV issue, IMO.
