Europeans Only: Big New IHG ‘Accelerate’ Promotion

UPDATE: Some have reported that this promotion is open to Europeans only.

ORIGINAL POST: IHG (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Intercontinental, etc.) hotel chain runs big promotions several times per year. Their newest one is “Summer 2016 Accelerate” and it’s open now…to some.

Lots of Free Points in Newest IHG Promotion

This newest promotion runs from June 1 to August 31, 2016. Each offer is personalized, but in general you receive points for reaching goals like downloading the IHG app, staying weekends, multiple stays and paying with an IHG credit card. Award stays do not count toward your goals.

Unfortunately and somewhat mysteriously, when I entered my IHG number just now the reply was “Not Eligible.” I plan to try again tomorrow and see if this glitch? has been fixed.
