It’s already been nearly two months since I originally wrote about how you can Earn a Minimum of 47,000 IHG Points for $50 through IHG’s Priceless Surprise Promotion! This contest is still going on through February, so get to writing! I am pleased to say that I have received and played all 94 entries that I sent in during the beginning of December. While I can’t sit here and tell you that I won a million IHG points or a helicopter and stay in New York City, I did have a couple big winners! Let’s jump in and see exactly what I received and what you can expect…
In total, I won 55,500 IHG points – more than enough points to book a night at in an over water villa at the Intercontinental in Bora Bora. Although the contest says that you will get a reply in five days, it looks like that will be more like one month. My 94 entries came in three waves of emails, spread out by a week or so each time. The first wave contained 44 emails, second wave had 6 emails, and third wave had the remaining 44 emails. All emails were sent at the exact same time in the day (I would receive 44 emails all at like 12:03pm).
The subject line will read: You qualify for a Priceless Surprise®!
The email account will be: IHGRewardsClub@eprizepromotions.com
Here is a breakdown of the winning emails (all are winners) and how many points I won:
Let us know how you did by commenting below! I’m anxious to see if somebody within the community wins one of the grand prizes. Pro tip: All grand prizes have dates and times set before the contest starts. To maximize your chances of winning, you’ll want to play your email entries around 5AM EST. This is when the least amount of entries will be played, maximizing your chance to land on one of the golden times! Good luck!
