At a minimum you should receive 500 points per entry. And a very cramped hand.
Reader Edward Uken decided to offer a service to do the work for you. He initially suggested an all-in price of $156 ($100 for labor, 56 for materials/stamps) and offered $20 to me for each person that signed up. He agreed to just reduce the price by $20 instead.
So for $136 he’ll do the work that should yield 47,000 IHG Rewards Club points ($0.0029 cents per point). I consider the points worth $0.006 apiece, the cheapest I’ve seen IHG sell points for is just below that. That makes a PointBreaks night cost $14.47 and a 40,000 point redemption $116.
If you’re interested, here are his instructions:
- It’s easy, register at IHG to make sure they get credit for the mailed entries
Fill out the form so we have the information to hand write and send out 94 envelopes w/ entries to IHG
Once we’ve fulfilled the order, we’ll send an e-mail out with a photo of all the envelopes we hand filled and as long as IHG processes the entries their points should show up in a few weeks.
We’re not affiliated in any way with IHG, just handling the laborious task of filling out entries by hand and mailing them off. The rest is up to IHG for making sure points are applied, etc. We can’t guarantee any part of that process, only that we’ve mailed out 94 entries to IHG.
For avoidance of doubt I don’t benefit in any way if you choose to take advantage of this offer. You’re giving them personal information, though for what it’s worth I’ve found both the reader and other members of his family and consider them reputable enough that I’ve gone ahead and done this myself.
