This is both annoying and worth it (in my opinion). Essentially you can earn 5,000 bonus IHG Rewards Club points (which I value at $25), though the catch is that you have to post a cheesy picture online.
To take advantage of this offer you need to:
- Share a picture on Twitter or Instagram of you “at home or at an IHG hotel”
- Use the hashtags #HomeWithIHG, #RewardsOffer, and #ad, and the handle @ihgrewardsclub
- Follow @ihgrewardsclub on Twitter/Instagram for at least 30 days, and have a non-private account
- Go to this website to claim your points
Just to make sure I’m being thorough, here are the key terms:
To participate in the Offer, a participant may log in to his/her Twitter® or Instagram® account and post a Tweet/Instagram post that includes a photo of himself/herself at home or at an IHG hotel with the hashtags “#HomeWithIHG”, “#RewardsOffer”, and “#ad” and the handle “@ihgrewardsclub” (“Submission”). NOTE: A participant must follow @ihgrewardsclub and have a non-private Twitter/Instagram account to participate and maintain such non-private account for at least thirty (30) days after the Offer Period ends to be eligible.
This offer is limited to the first 10,000 people who take advantage of the offer, and is only open to residents of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom, and 50 U.S./DC who are 18 or older.
Like I said, I find this to be annoying. If they were offering 500 points for this I’d say it’s not worth it. But 5,000 points is pretty significant. So as much as I find this annoying, I do plan on taking advantage of the offer.
Do you plan on taking advantage of this IHG offer?
