Register For IHG Into The Nights Promotion

Yesterday I wrote about IHG Rewards Club’s Into The Nights promotion, which will be their fall promotion. The promotion is valid for stays between September 4 and December 31, 2014.

IHG-Into-The-Nights-1

The promotion has gone live today, so if you log into your IHG Rewards Club account you should see your customized offer available.

My offer is for up to 58,300 IHG Rewards Club points for completing the individual tasks, plus an additional 23,000 bonus points for completing a total of four of the tasks, for a total of 81,300 IHG Rewards Club points.

IHG-Into-The-Nights-2

The basic “tasks” are as follows:

  • 13,200 points / Stay More / Stay 6 night(s) at any of IHG’s 4,700 hotels worldwide
  • 7,200 points / Weekender / Stay 2 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands
  • 16,800 points / Authentic Experiences / Stay at 3 InterContinental® Hotels and Resorts
  • 4,300 points / Download and book on the IHG App / Download and sign in to the IHG App and book a stay
  • 16,800 points / Globetrotter / Travel 3 time(s) internationally

IHG-Into-The-Nights-3

That’s a total of 58,300 base points, plus an extra 23,000 points or two free nights if I complete four of the five tasks. I’m still trying to figure out how the two free nights works, since that has the potential to be pretty lucrative. I don’t see it specifically addressed in the terms, unfortunately.

This is actually a fairly lucrative promotion. I could potentially earn all the bonus points in six nights. Or I could complete four of the five tasks by making three international stays at InterContinental hotels, two of which are over the weekend. That would earn me ~65,000 bonus points, so that would be over 20,000 bonus points per night. Not too shabby at all!

There are of course two things to keep in mind when it comes to IHG Rewards Club points:

  • They can be indirectly purchased for 0.7 cents each, so it’s pretty easy to quantify the value of the promotion
  • IHG doesn’t honor elite benefits on award stays, at least per the terms; many hotels go above and beyond to honor them anyway

What does your IHG Into The Nights offer look like?

Comments

  1. Yours is pretty similar with mine (US based Platinum member):
    Offer point: 57,900
    Bonus point: 24,000
    Total points: 81,900

    I usually stay at InterCon using BRG (which works reasonably well in the region where I live, outside US) and all BRG nights were eligible for Big Win last time, so hope that’s the case this time too.

  2. Somehow I cannot login to the freenights page and when I login to my regular account – it does not show me such an offer… may be I am not party to this offer…

  3. Mine is ridiculous! 50K points for 20 stays, 18 with breakfast plan, 3 Saturdays, etc. I have not been since during the last Big Win, which was also not worth completing. This certainly doesn’t entice me back.

    I could do survey and credit card spend for a little over a thousand points, but I don’t even think I’ll bother to register.

  4. No offers for me and won’t let me log in to the promotion site (We are sorry, but there was an error. Please try again later.) I can access the regular IHG site fine.

  5. As a HHonors Diamond member (and not a recent IHG participant) my offer is for 50,000 points

    Bonus Points: 29,700 (or 2 Free Nights)
    Offer points: 20,300
    Total points: 50,000

    Looks like I can complete my challenge by staying 5 nights, of which 2 stays at Holiday Inn Express & 1 booking ‘Bonus Point Stays with breakfast’. Plus downloading app & making 2 online/app bookings. At a minimum that is worth $350 to me – perhaps more once we understand the “Free Nights”.

    Now that I have reached Hilton Diamond for this year, I’m trying to figure out whether to continue with the HHonors 2x (or 3x) promotion, or just add to my Starwood points or take on this IHG promotion.

  6. Mine are different. Stay 7 nights at any IHG hotel / Take survey / Stay 2 saturday nights at any brand / Book and pay for 1 stay with IHG credit card / Book 2 stays on the app / Book 1 stay using bonus points + breakfast rate. Total if I complete 5/6 is 50k.

    I’m a platinum ambassador (having CC + points for ambassador), but since I’ve been working finishing up Hyatt, I’ve only stayed at an IHG hotel once this year. Not really planning on renewing ambassador.

  7. I got a great offer. Pretty much 50,000 bonus points or two free nights after staying 3 nights (2 nights over Saturday in a Holiday Inn). Depending on the terms of the two free nights, sounds like I’ll be doing some mattress running like the good old days.

  8. Mine is pretty good:

    24,900 Points or 2 Free Night(s): Complete 4 of 5 offers and earn 24,900 bonus points or 2 free nights

    – 8,800 / Stay more: Stay 6 night(s) at any of IHG’s 4,700 hotels worldwide
    – 4,800 / Weekender: Stay 2 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands
    – 1,500 / Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card: Book and pay for 1 stay(s) with your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card and earn 1,500 points
    – 8,000 / Change your view: Stay at 2 Holiday Inn hotel(s)
    – 2,000 / Bonus Point Package Reward: Book 1 stays using the Bonus Points Package with breakfast rate to earn more points faster.

    If I’m reading this right, I could earn 16,300 points and two free nights (or 41,200 points) for just two Saturday night stays at a Holiday Inn and skipping the first 8,880 point offer.

    I’ll definitely be doing this one.

  9. I got 21K points or 2 Free Nights

    Complete 5 out of 6

    9200 for 7 night(s)
    2200 for booking direct
    8000 for 2 Saturdays
    2000 for 1 stays using the Bonus Points Package with breakfast rate
    4800 download the app and book
    24000 Stay at 3 EVEN hotel(s) in Norwalk, CT or Rockville, MD.

    This is a good offer for me since I am DC based and can knock out the Even hotel easily. I figure I can get the free nights with only three separate stays at the Even hotel, say 300 dollars give or take out of pocket.

  10. “Travel 3 time(s) internationally”, my question is more about if I can stay at 3 different IHG hotels in the same foreign city, or does it have to be 3 different countries?

  11. My options:

    13800 Stay 7 night(s) at any of IHG’s 4,700 hotels worldwide
    7,200 Weekender Stay 2 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands
    2,300 Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit CardBook and pay for 1 stay(s)
    with your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card and earn 2,300 points Terms

  12. @ tom — It means you earn the bonus for unlocking each offer, and then an additional bonus if you unlock four of the five. So that’s the additional opportunity.

  13. I can log into my Rewards Club account, but like APU, I cannot login to the promotion page:

    “We are sorry, but there was an error. Please try again later.”

    What the.

    I stayed at an IGH property last Wednesday, so this is frustrating.

  14. – 2,000 / Bonus Point Package Reward: Book 1 stays using the Bonus Points Package with breakfast rate to earn more points faster.

    I assume you cannot book this rate type on the app? I have a great offer too which requires 2 stays booked via app but if I cannot book this on it then I’ll need 3 stays.

  15. As someone who has never booked at an IhG hotel I received 50000 point offer. I have some very simple questions which I would be grateful if answered.
    1. Was there something that I needed to do to sign up, or is having viewed my offer the same as having signed up?
    2. One requirement is to stay a couple of nights at holiday inns. Does a holiday inn express DEFINATELY
    Count as a holiday inn? ( all my stays will be mattress runs in another country so I need to be sure).
    3. Two other requirements are to book one stay on the app, having downloaded the app, that I understand. The second requirement is to book two stays on either IhG.com or their mobile site. Is the app and the mobile site the same thing, or should I book the other two of three stays on IhG.com just to be sure?
    4. As a new member are there any other promos that I can sign up for to get additional points without risking that they close down my account?
    Thanks

  16. Most peculiar, I can register and it says I can get 25,000 points or one night for completing one offer or 50,000 points or 2 nights for completing 2 offers, but I have no offers to complete!
    Wife got 10,500 plus 50,000 points or two nights for completing 2 weekend stays, total 3 nights, at holiday inns, like Ismael.

  17. I think the phrase is “I got shafted”

    Complete 5 of 6 offers and earn 27,000 bonus points or 3 free nights

    Stay 54 night(s) at any of IHG’s 4,700 hotels worldwide = 39200
    Stay at 5 brands = 14400
    Take our survey. = 100
    Stay 3 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands = 5600
    Stay at 13 Holiday Inn hotel(s) = 20000
    Book 10 stay(s) including a Friday or Sunday night (stay must include 2 or more nights) = 14400

  18. You know, it’s such a minor overall annoyance, but it irks me that I have to login to a separate page to enter the contest. If I’m already logged in at IHG, there should be a link on my home page and it should auto-log me in. Because seriously, I have no idea what my login is – that’s what Award Wallet is for.

    23,200 Points or 2 Free Nights – I’ve got several of the same tasks as you, but for fewer points. So it looks like I’ll be sitting this one out again. I really feel like they don’t get how targeted promos (or social media) work.

  19. @Lars: Holiday Inn Express is different from Holiday Inn and would not count towards that bonus. In previous IHG promotions they’ve often had similar bonuses specifying HIExpress and counting HIExpress as one of their separate brands when challenging people to stay at a certain number of different IHG brands.

  20. @farnorthtrader – I am in the same boat as you. Registered. See 2 bonus offers “1) Get 25,000 points or one night for completing one offer. 2) 50,000 points or 2 nights for completing another offers”. But I have no offers to complete….???? Let me know if you find a way out.

  21. Could have been worse! 🙂

    Complete 4 of 4 offers and earn 35,000 bonus points or 2 free nights

    – 13.200 Points – Stay 6 night(s) at any of IHG’s 4,700 hotels worldwide
    – 14.400 Points – Stay at 2 brands
    – 100 Points – Complete the Survey
    – 7.200 Points – Stay 2 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands

  22. Mine is:
    1. Download app and book
    2. Stay 3 nights at any IHG hotels
    3. Book 2 stays on .com, mobile or app.
    4. Stay 2 Saturdays
    5. Stay at 2 Holiday Inns

    So for example, sep 13(saturday) use IHG app to book and stay 1 night at HIX.

    Sep 20(saturday) use IHG app to book 1 night at HI

    Any date, use IHG app to book 1 night at same HI as sep 20 or different HI? I am thinking different HI.

    That should do it right?
