Launching Head for Points forced me to become comfortable with various bits of technology I had never bothered with before, namely Twitter, Google+ and Facebook. (You can sign up to my feed via the links to the right.)
Instagram, however, is one that continues to pass me by, and I have no intention of changing this!
All I can do, therefore, is point you to this website where you can learn how to win various prizes for sharing photographs of InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn etc hotels on Instagram.
The site says:
What would you do with a million points?
For seven weeks, between July 15th and August 30th, we’ll draw one weekly winner. But it doesn’t end there. Every photo you submit also earns you a chance to win the grand prize.
Weekly prize: 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points
Grand prize: 1,000,000 IHG Rewards Club points
These are decent prizes. 100,000 points would get you two nights at the InterContinental Paris / London / New York / Sydney etc, easily worth over £500. The 1m points prize would get you over £5,000 of free hotel stays, or you could transfer it into 200,000 Avios.
Obviously I won’t be entering, because it is far beyond my technical ability. But that simply means more chances for you ….
