I’m delighted to launch another exclusive Head for Points competition today.  One lucky reader is going to walk away with 50,000 IHG Rewards Club points!

50,000 IHG Rewards Club points will get you:

ten PointBreaks nights if you save them for the next round of super-discounted redemptions

two or three free nights at a mid range property, such as a regional Holiday Inn

one free night at a top-end IHG property such as the luxurious InterContinental Amstel in Amsterdam, or one of the InterContinental hotels in ParisNew York, London etc

10,000 Avios points – or 10,000 miles in most other major airline schemes – if you don’t want a hotel stay

You can find out more about IHG Rewards Club at their website here.

The reason for IHG’s generosity is their European Winter Sale, which is running until 7th February.

You can save up to 30% on stays at 600 InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo hotels across Europe.

The sale rates are valid for sale until 29th February 2016.

How to win 50,000 IHG Rewards Club points in the Head for Points competition

It’s easy!

All you need to do is complete the automated form at the bottom of this article.  That’s it!

You have a maximum of two entries per submission.  You gain one entry for filling in your email address and you can earn a second entry if you tweet about the competition.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Friday 22nd January.  The winner will be announced on Head for Points next week.

You can only enter if you are a UK resident – I apologise to Head for Points readers in other countries.  If you are UK-based but travelling this week, you will need to email a friend back home with a link to this page to enter for you.  You are limited to one submission per person and the points will only be deposited in an IHG Rewards Club account which matches the name of the winner.

Please read this before you enter:

Entrants must be aged 18 years or over.

The competition will launch at 5.45am on Monday 18th January and close at midnight UK time on Friday 22nd January.

Please ensure that you put a valid email address on the entry form.

The winner will be picked at random by the software which collates the entries.

The prize will be deposited into an IHG Rewards Club account.  The name of the winner must match the name on the account.

Entries are limited to one per person.

Your email details will not be used by Head for Points for any other purpose and will not be shared with IHG.

You must be a UK resident to enter. You must also be physically based within the UK in order to be able to enter – if you are travelling this week, you will need to ask a friend or relative in the UK to enter for you.

Under UK law I am obliged to make the name of the winner available upon request.

Good luck to everyone.

    I am not sure what this means, or if it has taken my entry. Good luck to everyone, who ever wins, I am free most nights 😉

    • Rob says:

      If is says ‘you have 1 entry’ then it counted. This is an oddity of the system – if you entered a competition before and took the Twitter option, it tries to force you to log in via Twitter this time.

  • Oly says:

    Thanks for the competition Rob 😀

  • Mr blue says:

    Another great comp. Thanks Rob! Slightly OT but does anyone know what’s happening with the “new” benefits promised for IHG spire elites. I thought they were suppose to come into effect from 1stjan?

    • Rob says:

      No, it is a bit odd. They do have 5,000 hotels to keep in line though when introducing anything new.

      • Jason says:

        Any chance you can give them a nudge before my reward stay a week on Friday 😉
        Only kidding 🙂

  • David says:

    Slightly OT, but still IHG related: does anyone know if the Accelerate bonus points will count towards IHG elite status?

  • flood says:

    Do IHG generally recognise elite status (and associated benefits exc points) on third party bookings?

  • Mel Martin says:

    I’m in, never won anything in the past, but hey, nothing to lose really!

  • Tony cousins says:

    Awesome idea
