IHG has released the details of its latest Accelerate promotion, through which you can earn tens of thousands of bonus points for stays between September 6 and December 15, 2016. After you register for the promotion, you’ll learn how many points you can earn, as it varies from person to person. When I logged in to check my offer, I was targeted to earn up to 38,000 bonus points:

I was targeted to earn up to 38,000 bonus points with the Accelerate promotion.

Meanwhile, TPG Editor-in-Chief Zach Honig, an IHG Spire Elite member, was targeted to earn up to 42,000 bonus points:

The Accelerate promotion is specific to each member.

According to both mine and Zach’s offer, we’d earn 5,000 points after an eligible stay at any participating IHG property worldwide once in September. Then, we’d earn bonus points for each three-night stay, up to 18 nights. We were both targeted to earn 15,000 bonus points after the 18th night.

Remember, you can also apply for the IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card and earn 60,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 within the first three months of opening an account. These points can be used in conjunction with this IHG promotion, making it possible to book a longer or higher-end stay.
