Does anyone have or remember the T&C for the "5,000 bonus for 1 weekend stay" that is often received around ones birthday?

I'm pretty sure it was one night and they're claiming it was for 2 night.

Would a IHG BRG reservation count as a stay for the accelerate promotion ?

Doubt it. There are many reasons why it wouldnt work from the list below.

“Non-Qualifying Room Rates” or “Non-Qualifying Stay” include the following: any stay at a Kimpton Hotel, net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG’s sole discretion."

I'm wondering if complimentary night is also referring to a BRG or only a free night certificate.

It doesn't get disqualified for any of these reasons? I'm not sure exactly how u did ur BRG, but I could see many reasons who it shouldnt count. Maybe these?

-certain package rates
-friends and family rate
-special discounted contract rates
-rates booked through third party websites
-complimentary hotel Stays

I don't see a manager approving it. If it will go through on auto, you never know...

The only one that it can fall under is " complimentary hotel Stays "

They're going out of their way to show you that its only for full price paid stays. Do u really think it would work? Also see edit

From everything I've seen, they actually do - especially the ones where you pay upfront and get reimbursed by check/wire transfer.

I'm looking at getting the IHG credit card for myself and my wife. The offer online is for 60,000 points, $50 credit, free first year and 5,000 for additional card. On the phone they're offering 80,000 points, free first year and that's it. Which is worth getting?

15,000 points are worth approximately $80..
