With the latest Accelerate promo just launched, now is as good a time as any to join IHG Rewards Club. My confession is that until very recently I wasn’t a member of IHG Rewards, having focused heavily on hotel loyalty schemes elsewhere. However, my resistance broke for this Accelerate and I thought I’d see what the fuss was about.

I’m pleased to say that on sign up and registration to Accelerate, there was a nice little bonus 500 points awaiting me. If you’ve yet to sign up to IHG Rewards, I can’t guarantee it, but there may just be the same bonus available to you.

As you can see from the image above, once I signed up to and logged into the latest Accelerate, I found that I had been offered a very easy 500 IHG Rewards points if I downloaded the IHG app and signed into my IHG Rewards Club account on the app itself.

Don’t forget that as a new IHG Rewards Club member you will definitely get 200 free points for completing the new member quiz.

Finally, it’s also worth remembering that IHG Rewards Club also runs the outstanding value PointBreaks offer – with various hotels worldwide available at a remarkably low 5000 points a night.

    It wouldnt download straight from their download app link in my offers section so we found the app on the main page and downloaded and logged in that way.
    I hope they credit the bonus points for not downloading the app throught that offers link?
