Take a Family Vacation and Share Your Points with Another Family! #ShareForever

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of IHG Rewards Club for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

This summer, take a vacation and share the love with the  IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” program! You'll earn points for your stay + points to share!  Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could not only get rewarded for all those family vacations that you take, but also share the love with another family? What if they could share THEIR loyalty points with you? You’d rack up your loyalty points a lot faster and be able to schedule even more fun family vacations this summer, right?

With the IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” Summer Promotion, you actually can do that! Imagine this: you and your family book a weekend getaway and stay at your favorite Holiday Inn. You earn loyalty points AND your best friend earns the same number. Then, your best friend takes a trip with HER family and stays at another IHG hotel, earns points and shares them with YOU!

I’ll tell you a little about how it works, then give you a few fun ideas on how to get those points adding up quickly with some of my favorite family vacation destinations! First, check out this video for an overview:

How does the IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” Summer Promotion Work?

Basically, it works a lot like I outlined above. You and your friend both have to sign up or the IHG® Rewards Club.  Don’t worry, it’s super easy. I did it in under a minute!  Register Now! As you can see, I don’t have any points yet. That will hopefully change this summer! Sign up and start earning IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” points! I haven’t made specific plans yet, but my son is turning 10 and I’m turning 40. I’ll take him on a little weekend getaway to celebrate our two big birthdays. I also plan to have a one-night getaway locally with my boyfriend to celebrate. We stayed at our local Holiday Inn last year for HIS birthday and the service was spectacular.

Since my aunt travels a lot for family getaways and my cousin’s drum corps shows, I’d share my points with her. Hopefully, she’ll share her points with me too! Earning points as easy as planning a quick getaway! Here’s a breakdown of how it works:

  • Earn 500 Points for your next IHG hotel stay from May 1, 2015 – September 2, 2015
  • Earn another 500 points for that same hotel stay to share with another member! (Or keep the points for yourself!)
  • Earn from 68,500 to 115,500 “Share Forever” bonus points plus a maximum 58,500 bonus points to share, or keep.

Yes, you’re seeing that right: you can opt to KEEP your extra points for yourself. Of course, that kinds of defeats the whole “sharing” concept, but I’m totally not judging! It lets you double up those points even if you don’t have friends who are planning a trip during the promotion.

Fun Family Vacation Ideas to Help You Earn Those Points

Need some ideas to help you rack up those IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” points? You’re in luck, because IHG® has over 4,800 hotels in nearly 100 countries around the world! So you could:

  • Plan a staycation in your own town: book a night at your favorite IHG® hotel for the whole family and spend the afternoon lounging by the pool. Pretend you’re tourists! Ask the front desk for recommendations on where to eat, what attractions to visit, and so on.
  • Plan a date night out! Hire a sitter and have a romantic evening with your partner in a local IHG® hotel.
  • Take a week-long vacation to a new place. Decide how far you’re willing to travel, then grab a map. Aim a dart, then choose the closest destination with an IHG® hotel. If you want to stay in our own state, get a state map. If you want to stay on, say, the East Coast, just unfold that portion of the country map. This is a fun way to find new places to visit!
  • Stay an extra night: If you’re heading to a hotel for a wedding, reunion or other event, get there a day early or add a day on to your trip. That way, you’ll have time to enjoy the town and relax either before or after the big event!

These are just a few fun ways to earn those IHG® Rewards Club “Share Forever” Summer Promotion bonus points! Get creative and come up with ideas that work for your family! The point is, you don’t have to go on long vacations to get away from it all. Sometimes just a single night at a hotel in town can do wonders to help you unwind. Learn more at shareforever.ihg.com

    This is awesome. I haven’t heard of this one. I am a member of another one which is pretty great too. Nothing like earning free points for overnight stays.

  4. This is a great idea and savings for those who take vacations and who have family or friends who do also. It does seem pretty easy. No, I don’t go on vacations or I would sign up.

  5. We signed up for this and are earning crazy amounts of points for work and pleasure travel. Can’t wait to head to Boston next week and rack up some more points – then there is the summer road trip! Great program.

  6. I love rewards programs like this! We have done a lot of free travel because of points! We are heading to North Carolina for a week this summer to visit family. I can’t wait!

  7. Wow!!! That’s pretty neat that you can share your reward point! I would of never thought of doing that!

  9. Fi Ní Neachtáin

    I love getting rewarded for my custom. This sounds like a fab rewards system for people who love to travel.

  10. I liek that you are rewarded everytime you stay at an IHG hotel. Its something you would probably be doing anyway so why not get some perks! Can’t wait to sign up. We plan to travel this Summer.

  11. These reward points sound awesome and something I could definitely use! We haven’t been on a family vacation and it would be awesome to do so.

  12. Rebecca Swenor

    This sounds like an amazing rewards program indeed along with an amazing program for sure. I think it is amazing you can share with friends or family. I will have to check this out. Thanks for sharing.

  13. We travel a lot and this might be a great thing for us. I hadn’t heard of it before but I will be sharing with a lot of traveling friends and family members!

  14. Hmmm…I will have to look into this. My family and I travel a lot and something like this could add up for us! It would be great to earn a couple of night’s stay somewhere nice for free!

  15. Bonnie @ wemake7

    That is so cool! I’ve never heard of this before but it sounds like it would be very beneficial to those that travel.

  16. I’ll definitely be doing plenty of traveling this summer. It’s nice to know I’m able to share points with my daughter who also travels.

  17. Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    That sounds like a no brainer for people who like to travel. I am going to be signing up for this!!
