IHG’s Priceless Experiences Sweepstakes is going on now, and you can enter daily between now and February 15, 2017.
Last year’s Priceless Surprises sweepstakes was extremely popular, as the rules allowed (perhaps an oversight) everyone to win every time they entered and people ended up with a minimum of 47,000 IHG Rewards points.
This year’s promotion isn’t quite as instantly lucrative, but you still have a shot every day. Since the sweepstakes entry requirement rules are written in a way that it seems you actually have to stay at a hotel in order to win, it is my guess that less people are entering than could.
The sweepstakes is open to all US residents that are 21 years and older, that are Mastercard holders as of 11/15/2016.
There are 11 different entry periods of about a week each, through February 15, 2017.
If you don’t win a prize in one of the periods, your entry doesn’t carry forward to the next (because you can enter daily) but you still get entered into the Grand Prize drawing.
There will be 5 Grand Prize winners drawn from the entire pool of entries at the end of the sweepstakes, and the prize sounds pretty darn cool. Winners each get a trip for two to Chicago (including round-trip coach air tickets), 3 nights at the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile, meals, transportation, helicopter tour of the Chicago skyline, and a spa experience.
They also get to attend a private wine tasting event, receive a $600 Mastercard Prepaid card, enjoy a private dinner at the wedding venue DL Loft organized by celebrity chef Graham Elliot who will be on hand for a meet-and-greet, and provide a signed copy of his cookbook. Oh, and the winners each get a $5,000 check.
Each week of the sweepstakes two randomly drawn first prize winners will receive their choice of one of these prizes –
Eight randomly drawn second prize winners per week will receive 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points.
While the chance of getting a prize is much, much lower than last year, if you win they are all excellent prizes!
Here’s how to enter –
After entering your IHG Rewards Club member number, you’re asked to check a box to confirm that you are a MasterCard holder.
You’ll need to watch a quick video (less than a minute) about IHG, and then you get confirmation that you’ve received a sweepstakes entry.
That’s all there is to it, and if you bookmark this page (or the entry page) you can return each day to enter.
Good luck to everyone, and I hope a Magic of Miles’ reader wins a prize!
