Rene reminded me that I had yet to even get started on my IHG Accelerate 2016 Promotion. But with a little effort, I should be able to easily earn 33,500 points to add to my IHG Account.

  1. I have the same offers as you. Trying to decide if it’s worthwhile to book a mattress run for a weekend at a Holiday Inn. I’ve already booked direct and stayed at one night and downloaded the IHG app. So the way I figure, if I do a weekend at a HI, I will complete the whole bonus. Deciding if $150 or so (the cheapest I can find one locally) is worth it. What do you think? It’s do this and get all points or do nothing and get only 500.

  2. IHG points are generally thought to be worth about $0.006 per point so 33,500 points would be worth around $200 (plus whatever points you earn on your actual stay). You’d come out a little ahead with your mattress run and if you can take advantage of PointBreaks hotels, it will be even better!
