IHG Rewards Club, the Holiday Inn / Crowne Plaza etc hotel group, has announced that its current promotion, ‘The Big Win’, will return in January.
You may have read some of my recent posts (eg this one) about ‘mattress run’ nights I did in cheap locations to hit the low target on my wifes account. I spent just under £200 to earn over 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points, which should get me around £600 of free stays if used properly.
Registration for the January edition of ‘The Big Win’ should open on Monday.
It will run from January 1st to April 30th.
There is little more to say at the moment, until we see what sort of targets people are getting. If IHG has set the bar a lot higher than it did for the Winter promotion, it won’t be much fun – but let’s see.
The registration page is now open and is here.
My own account needs 10 nights which is very unlikely. My wife needs 3 nights / 3 brands / 3 Saturdays, so effectively 3 Saturday nights would do it. Saturday is a terrible day for us to do mattress run nights, though, and her bonus is only 31,000 points anyway.
My Mum has the most useful. 5 nights required (any days) across 3 brands, must include 2 HIX properties (same OK or different?). Bonus of 98,000 plus the usual points. This looks worth a punt. I think I will see what comes up naturally between now and Easter, and then try to pick up some cheap nights over the Easter break right at the last gasp.
