62.4k points for 23 nights over 128 days is my target maximum. No chance of that.
Still it is an easy 10k extra for one (already booked) stay in September
Apart from first two targets they are all incremental so unable to tick off more than one with the same stay

EDIT
Stay in Sept 5000
Stay once 5000
Stay 8 10400
Stay 3 more 3000
Stay 3 more 3000
Stay 3 more 3000
Stay 3 more 3000
Stay 3 more 30000

Ew. 51k max bonus for me. Stay once for 5,000 is just about the only thing I'll hit.

Terms

18,000
Your Achievement BonusComplete 6 of 8 offers and earn (an additional) 18,000 bonus points.



The best I can achieve is to leave out the 4 night stay or the 2 stay member exclusive rate bonus ( as I do not understand which rate it is on website) for 60,800 IHG points.

It says complete 6 out of 8 offers but there are only 7 offers.

Similar issue with the last line.

99,900 points (theoretically) possible for me.

5000 points, stay once
21000 points, stay 9 nights
26400 points, stay at 3 brands
13200 points, stay at 3 HI hotels
6000 points, 2 stay at member exclusive rates
1300 points, spent $80 on food and beverages at IHG hotels
1000 points, donate points to IHG Shelter in a storm disaster relief program
26000 points complete 6 out of 8 offers (although there were only 7 offers)

As usual the fine print is VERY ambiguous so it would be very easy to try and work it out but still get it wrong.

Offers not past history dependent.
Mrs andye was given exactly the same offer as me despite me being Plat Amb who completed all the Set your sights tasks and she not earning a point.

New IHG member here.

2 stays = 1 free night.
2 more stays = another free night.

Should be able to achieve one of those thanks to work...

Correction. Not quite identical. She only has to do 18 (not 23) nights total. Still pretty dull and a bit hard for a new player

I got Member Exclusive Rate Bonus as one of my tasks. The Terms & Conditions state that it has to be hotels in Asia/Pacific, Africa and middle East. So Australian hotels are not included?

It appears that is the case.

And I just noticed Holiday Inn Express is also not included.

Can the free nights be booked for friends/family or does the member have to be present at check-in for the free night? Want to ask my family in USA to do a mattress run...

At your own risk.

You can put your name in booking as well as second person and make mention that you may be arriving late and the second person is going to check in first. Then for whatever reason you are delayed and don't turn up but they don't need to know. Make sure that person checks in alone.

Oh at times the hotel hasn't taken payment for prepaid booking and this could pose a slight issue.

Can anyone interpre the Member Exclusive rate?

The link goes to a promotion that ends 01September for stays until 04 September. It appears to be the IHG Rewards Club advance rate with or without breakfast. What if you use the link to book a stay after 04 September. Does it count?

One those IHG gray areas they like to leave in there to bamboozle?

Find the cheapest room you can in the coughpiest of places and find a backpacker somewhere to include in the booking to get a free night ?? might be a Win/win ???? or not.

I got the same....I did not realise the first 2 offers add together. I thought they would need to be separate nights. are you sure ??????? If so might take Mrs S to the City for a night if I can rack up 10,000 bonus points plus base points from the same booking

If you book 1 night in September then you have achieved the first 2 hurdles.

The offers do stack. I completed 4 of my Set Your Sights task with 2 stays
