    It's only useful if you're going to have 3 Saturday stays anywhere in Q1 anyways. ;)

    For 2014 Big Win, I'm in the 80k range for 7 stays. I'm happy with this.

    Mine was 45... Didn't make it, as I stayed in a company guest house for 4 weeks. No points or nights for that one.

    As such I just didn't worry about the big win... Crack the case was better for me, about 200k.

    That isn't too great but not too bad entirely if you can do the 8 nights.

    I got an offer of 101K points with the following:

    21,200 for 29 nights
    2,000 for best flexible rate+breakfast
    6,400 for 4 Saturday
    12,800 for 4 InterContinental hotels
    51,000 for completing all offers

    29 nights in 3 months is way too much (my wife would divorce me if stayed away that much).
    I was about to book 8 nights in Jan but after seeing this offer, its time to move on. Hope Marriott or Hyatt do something in Jan.

    seems excessive amount of stays for points earned. I don't blame you for moving on.

    wife's challenge is a stay (3 nights minimum) in IHG participating brand in China, problem is, the list of participating hotels is not populated yet, which makes planning a tad difficult..:(

    nope, but i read that some others also had the same challenge on having stays in IHG China hotels (perhaps it's a special tie up between IHG and their China hotels to promote these in 2014) ;)

    on the bright side, we are based in Asia, so China is still a possibility, for Big Win 2013, one of her challenges was to stay in 2 different US cities??! so IHG is kinder this time...:p

    Did they ask for Hualuxe in particular or any hotels? When I originally saw Live the city life challenge I thought I was only given an option of 5 hotels, but fortunately I later realized that there was View All button that gave me an option for a two easy stays at NYC.

    My Live the city life challenge destinations were the same as Foxberg's. I was in Europe until Oct.5. On my return I had matters to tend to at home, so no reason nor time to go to any of them, esp. in (almost-)winter.

    It was easier for me since I'm based in NYC.

    I think my wife had the US city challenge as we redeemed a reward night at a HIE in San Francisco in June this year whilst on a family trip to US, so the IHG system picked that up and decided oh well, should make her come back and stay in a few distinct US cities, her T&Cs required distinct cities, so no points were posted for that challenge when i stayed as a second guest in her account for a business trip to US and stayed in SF for 2 different hotels

    rats, knew i should have stayed at the Hyatt SF across the road from the HIE instead, in that way, no US city challenge for Big Win ;)

    Since IHG removed a lot of the promo codes off our account for 2014 has anyone come up with new codes that will help us earn more IHG points on top of the Big Win Promo?

    I read quickly through this thread and did not see the big win 2014 tracker website, can anyone provide a link?

    Of all the searching I've done for the link, no matter what link gets provided from the search, I keep running into links that are not live.

    Thanks!

    no a lot of action on this thread, is everyone done or have the diminished offers of the 2014 Big Win promo compared to 2013's promo led to many not participating?
