As most of you know, the IHG Rewards Club Priceless Surprises promotion ended back in February. When I initially wrote about the promotion, I promised to post my final point tally and I’m happy to report the majority of the points did in fact post by the time April rolled around. Back in November I prepared 470 entries for myself and four people in my immediate family. Yes, I still have full function of both hands thanks to several family members who pitched in.
Based on the minimum reward of 500 points, I was expecting 47,000 points per person at a cost of about $46.06 in postage. I ended up with a total of 243,000 IHG points from 436 entries at a total cost of around $250 (factoring in the cost of extra index cards, shipping labels, and envelopes). Below is a breakdown of the number of points credited to each person’s account:
Me 94 emails = 50,500 points
Mom 93 emails = 52,500 points
Dad 78 emails = 46,500 points
Brother 94 emails = 50,500 points
Sister 77 emails = 43,000 points
Total 436 emails = 243,000 points
This is slightly a bigger haul than I had initially anticipated. As you may have noticed, a total of 34 entries are missing. I reached out to IHG Rewards Club about getting those credited and received confirmation that they had forwarded my request to HelloWorld, the company handling the entries. I never got any additional emails for any account, except for my sister’s. IHG sent her 17 entries but I dropped the ball and didn’t check her email before the promotion ended. I tried to click on the entries, but received a message that the promotion had ended.
This one’s on me, really, since I should have checked the emails before the promotion deadline. I thought about reaching out to IHG about getting the other points credited, but I don’t think it’s worth the hassle. I came out with more points than I expected. The fact that I’m missing a few thousand is fine with me.
If you’re wondering what to do with your point haul from the IHG Rewards Club Priceless Surprises promotion, check out my Best IHG Rewards Club Redemption series. Some of the information is outdated by now, since IHG has undergone several category changes after the post was published, but it’s still a good post to reference if you’re looking for some idea of what’s possible with IHG points.
