I Caved. It’s Into the Nights for Me

 I Caved. Its Into the Nights for MeIHG’s Into the Nights promotion has been covered extensively by points and miles blogger, so there’s a good chance you’ve heard of this promotion by now. If not, the premise of it is simple; You earn points for completing tasks. These tasks can range from booking a few nights at certain IHG branded hotels, to taking a survey, to completing multiple stays. The tasks vary from account to account and it seems like newer accounts have easier requirements.

Originally, I was on the fence about participating in the promotion for a few reasons. First, I don’t have status with IHG, because I don’t stay there or have their credit card. Second, I didn’t see an IHG hotel stay in my future. And finally, I didn’t feel like spending $300 on a mattress run. However, after a few weeks of contemplating my participation I started to realize that this was a great promotion worth doing.

I don’t need status with IHG to stay there, especially if I do a mattress run. Also, by the time I use my free nights or points I’ll have the IHG card, because it’s going to be part of my next AOR. As far as using the free nights or points, I don’t have an immediate need for them, but I will include an IHG hotel in our next summer vacation. The $300 fee is unavoidable, but I did find a possible Best Rate Guarantee claim which could cut that fee down. So, Into the Nights you ask? Yes.
