Very small risk. Especially considering that they've been honestly honoring the mail-ins.

IDK about that. From reading this forum, it appears to be hit or miss. Some people are being credited for all their entries, and some are only receiving some or even none of them. Although it could be that they will still receive them-- they seem to be very backed up. Thanks.

I sent in the 1st week of Dec and haven't heard back. I'm being patient, I see here that those receiving responses mailed in the 1st two weeks.
I checked my IHG account online earlier today and behold I was met with a "Register for IHG Surprise Promotion to win...!".
I could have sworn that I had signed up already. I quickly registered on the spot and kicked myself a few times.
Checking my email history now, I see that I got Priceless Surprise registration confirmation on 11/15 (that makes more sense!)

Can I use a debit master card for the first six numbers. Does the card need to be registered to my account?

Thanks, but that was not my question

I was perusing this thread, and I realized I may be able to answer two of the questions some of you have asked, so I created an account to do so.

I got an email from the customer service of the promotion stating the following:

"Your 3x5 should be in an envelope and everything, including the destination and return address should be handwritten."

So that means no postcards either, at least according to the individual who dealt with me.  (They didn't accept my reasoning that having no envelopes to open will save them incredible amounts of time.)  Presumably, some will respond with a YMMV or DROPR (DROER).

Many people, self included, were successful with printed addresses on the envelope.

can we get a screenshot?

maybe this is their excuse to get rid of the much more then expected entries

This is slightly off-topic, but when IHG points are transferred to airlines (and I know that such transfers are generally not recommended), must both accounts have the same name?

The member number to write is the priceless rewards member number, not the HHonors number, right?

Aaaah, ok. I'm new to the hotels aspect of travel/DDF (actually, new to travel period). I thought IHG was Hilton's "All brands" corporate title or something. Suddenly, this sweepstakes is a lot less exciting to me....
