Inbox (5): an Update on the IHG Promotion

Well, would you look at that!  I actually got some emails yesterday.  Five emails for five plays, not too bad!

I wanted to update everyone on the IHG Priceless Surprises Promotion now, so that you still have time to submit entries before February 15th if you want to.

I mailed my first 10 entries on January 23rd, and just got 5 emails (which resulted in 5 plays) yesterday, February 3rd.  So far I’ve already earned 3,000 IHG points!  After I receive all my emails, I’ll be analyzing the trends and reporting to back to you.

In short, 3,000 IHG points at current valuations of around $0.007, I’ve won about $21 worth of points already!  Of course, this is a very rough estimate, but I’ve only used about 5.3% of my entries, which means there’s plenty of room for more!

But for now, there’s still time for you!  I know I’ll be sharing these tips with a few friends that might be interested, too.  A few free hotel nights?  Why not!  Be sure to read the official rules, and my previous post explaining some of the information in more relaxed terms.

Good luck!



  1. I don’t think IHG points are worth 7 cents a piece. At least I’ve never been able to get that much value out of them.


    1. Yeah it definitely varies depending on how/when you use them. For IHG, the most recent valuations I’ve seen on Nerd Wallet and The Points Guy both list $0.07, so I figured I’d use those numbers!

      How much do you think you can usually get for them?


      1. I think those bloggers typically value IHG points at 0.7 of a cent (or 7/10s of $.01).

        I value IHG points around .6 of a cent. Most decent award nights cost 20-30k IHG points.

      2. Good call…totally misread that! I thought that seemed high, I did the math and didn’t even realize that I was overvaluing them, thanks for the sharp eye! I’ve edited this and the last post to reflect it.
