    “Rather than the variety of bonus points for hitting all the targets this iteration is a fixed value for everyone: 50,000 points or 2 award nights”

    That seems to be the default offer, but they are indeed again offering customized bonuses. Mine is 24000 or 2 free nights, plus the 63000 from the offers.

    I got the exact same offer… but are the free nights going to be good at any IHG hotels? There was never any clarification on that on the website. That would help determining if I would opt for the free night or the 25k points.

    I agree – I like these kinds of promos. To me, the more “complicated” they are, the more likely that there will be ways for enterprising folks to maximize the benefits.

    I was also reading the terms and conditions and it looked like there might be one reading of them that suggested that you could earn 50,000 AIRLINE MILES which would certainly be worth more than 50,000 IHG points (and possibly worth more than 2 free nights, depending on how you value miles vs. points)

    I got an odd one. I have to do 4 out of 5 challenges to get the bonus points. The largest challenge, points-wise (16.3K), is to download and book one stay the app. The next largest (15K), which I won’t make, is to stay 9 nights total. However, if I skip the 9 nights challenge, the other 3 challenges can all be satisfied with that same one-night stay I book via the app, (and applying for the credit card).

    So, for a single one-night stay I can get 35K bonus points, plus whatever the stay itself earns, plus the points from the credit card.

    Wow I wish I had no offer that good! I’ve only had one stay with them this year (a 3 night reward redemption) but my targets are way tougher and less rewarding than yours. Result – zero extra stays to IHG and more to Hilton!

    Jesus, man, what does it take to excite you?

    Two stays at a Holiday Inn and you can stay at any IHG hotel in the world for 2 nights? That’s incredible. I have a similar offer and I’m gonna maximize the shit out of it.
