I'm considering another mattress run situation, again to max out the latest Accelerate points, but this time ti would require 2 stays, totalling about £80 between them. It would earn me 33,000 points, plus whatever I get for the stays. To buy 33,000 on the IHG site would cost around £250 I think, but using the common valuation often quoted on here of around £0.36 they would be around £119 worth of points. So even at £80 for the stays I would be winning; anyone want to give me a contrarian view before I make non-refundable bookings ? I would not have to travel far for these, so no travel costs to factor in.
