Many of you have been leaving comments on the IHG Rewards Club Priceless Surprises post, asking whether the mail-in entry method has produced any results. I’m happy to report that readers Linda and Mandy have received emails confirming they were in fact eligible for one prize per entry received. Both of them reported earning at least 500 IHG points per entry, sometimes even more. Mandy sent over the following screenshot of the email she received from IHG:
Linda sent her entries in on November 15 and received an email today, instructing her to claim her prize. She reports that she and her husband used both hand-printed envelopes as well as mailing labels and both entry types earned them points.
I’m glad we’re finally getting some positive feedback about the IHG Priceless Surprises promotion. I’m sure lots of people will be mailing in their remaining entries now that there’s confirmation of prizes being issued. As a result, I’m sure it will take a bit longer to get a response, since a.) we’re dealing with the U.S. Post Office during the holiday season and b.) the HelloWorld warehouse will probably be overwhelmed by additional entries.
As a reminder, IHG Priceless Surprises entries should be hand-written on 3 x 5 cards containing the following information:
- Full name
- Complete mailing address
- Day and evening phone numbers
- Valid email address
- IHG member number
- The first six digits of your MasterCard
- Date of birth
…then mailed to the following address:
IHG and MasterCard Priceless Surprises Promotion
c/o HelloWorld, Inc.
P.O. Box 5996
Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5996
Lots of folks, like Paul from Island Traveler, have been able to save on mailing costs by buying discounted stamps on Ebay. You can also earn at least 5 points per $1 by purchasing envelopes and index cards at office supply stores with your Chase Ink Plus card. I ended up preparing 470 entries for myself and four family members and I believe the total cost for envelopes, mailing labels, index cards, and postage was around $250 – not bad if we end up earning a minimum of 235,000 IHG points.
