The InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG) has just launched its new promotion between September 1st to December 31st in the last quarter of 2015. The name of the promotion is “Accelerate”, which can be registered here. On the front page, it says “Earn at least 50,000 bonus points. Or enroll in IHG Reward Club to earn up to two free nights”.
As I mentioned last time, there are two promotions running right now for SPG. To make things more sweetener, there is another promotion coming out, which is named “Make It Count”. According to the promotion, one can earn 1,000 Starpoints per weekend stay.through August 31, 2015. A weekend is defined as any Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, according to the term of the promotion.

One will earn 3,000 points after one stay, between June 1 and September 30. One Hyatt point is about 1.8 cents, thus 3,000 points will be about $54. Not a bad value from one hotel stay! What’s interesting is that I didn’t receive this promotion until July 31, even though this promotion has already started for a whole month.Read More »
