It is time to start enrolling for the Q1-2016 promotions. Whether you plan on traveling during the promotion period or not, it is always recommended to register as you do not have to worry if you end up staying any where.
IHG has announced its promotion for early 2016 – Accelerate 2016: you could earn up to at least 30,000 bonus points based on a set of predefined tasks for stays between Jan 01, 2016 and April 30, 2016.
You need to register for this offer and complete the set of predefined tasks for bonus points.

This offer requires 5 nights (one in Januray-2016) for a total of 55,000 bonus points.
This offer also requires 5 nights to earn a total of 55,000 bonus points. However, I could choose to stay 2 nights at Holiday Inn and pay with my IHG credit card to earn 45,000 bonus points.
