IHG has released details on their first bonus points promotion of 2015 called Set Your Sights. This promo promises to award at least 50,000 bonus points for those who complete the required tasks. This promotion is structured much like the previous Big Win, and the current Into the Nights promotions, with each customer having their own targeted list of tasks to accomplish to trigger the bonus points.
Before I go further into the details, remember that the current Into the Nights promo went through more than its fair share of terms and conditions chaos and IT related issues. That seems to be mostly resolved at this point, so it is possible that lessons were learned from that promo that won’t repeat for this promo. It is also possible that promo chaos in the past will be a predictor of promo chaos in the future, so factor that in when deciding whether or not to participate. Now back to details on this new promo…
You must register for the Set Your Sights promo and it runs from January 1, 2015 – April 30, 2015. While your individual tasks will vary, here are my tasks as an example of what is out there.
If I did all of those tasks I would earn 20,400 bonus points and then if I complete at least four of the five tasks I trigger an additional 29,400 “achievement bonus”, for a total of up to 50,000 bonus points. My Into the Nights tasks were slightly easier to obtain, and much more lucrative since I can earn two bonus award nights anywhere instead of just a total of 50,000 bonus points.
If I was naturally going to already have several IHG stays early in 2015 it might make sense to push a little to earn some bonus points via this promotion, but since I don’t currently have any IHG stays needed during that time frame I am personally unlikely to participate this time around. However, I do like that they have released details of the promo and are at least keeping things somewhat interesting
What did your tasks and bonuses look like for the Set Your Sights promo? Are you likely to participate?
