Curtis here. One thing we heard quite often in the survey was that you really enjoyed the “Quick Wins” posts – so here you go!
There are 3 current ones that I’d like to highlight for IHG, Starwood and Delta.
- Earn a minimum of 47,000+ IHG points for $50 and 2 hours of work
- Get an easy 1,000 Delta points
- (FREE) Daily contest to win 1,000 – 10,000 Starwood points + other prizes
1) Earn a minimum of 47,000+ IHG points for $50 and 2 hours of work
Summary: IHG just recently launched a promotion called “Priceless Surprises” which grants a member an email game entry for every stay they have between now and 2/15/2016. (94 maximum entries per member)
However, instead of staying in a hotel you can just print out some information on a 3×5 lined index card and grant yourself entries that way, since the contest has to be “no purchase necessary.”
Each entry is a guaranteed winner of at least 500 IHG points. (among other really cool prizes – official rules here)
Note: You can use your Discover It card with Apple Pay to get 20% cash back on your stamps, envelopes and index card purchase from Walgreens.
Points: 94 maximum entries x 500 IHG points (minimum) per entry = 47,000+ IHG points.
Value: Assuming we value each IHG point as at least 0.7 cents per point, it would be worth about $329.
- Again, you MUST first register for the promotion here: click this link
- Only (1) entry per envelope
- You can submit (94) entries to this contest.
- To be safe, hand-write everything. (the envelope AND the index card info)
- You must have had a MasterCard open before 11/15/2015.
- You must hand write the following info on a 3″ x 5″ lined index card:
- Full Name
- Daytime Phone
- Evening Phone (this can be the same as your day time phone)
- Email Address
- IHG Number
- First 6 Digits of MasterCard Number
- Birthdate (Must be 21 years old)
- All entries must be postmarked by 2/15/16 and sent to:
IHG and MasterCard Priceless Surprises Promotion
c/o HelloWorld, Inc.
PO Box 5996
Kalamazoo, MI 49003 – 5996
2) Get an easy 1,000 Delta points
Summary: This is a pretty easy way to earn 1,000 Delta points. If you already have the Delta SkyMiles credit card then all you will have to do is:
- Register for the promotion
- Spend $1 on your card
- Make a small purchase through the Delta shopping portal to generate at least 1 mile
Note: If you don’t have a Delta credit card, you’ll have to find a second way to get at least one mile OTHER than the shopping portal. One idea is to utilize their dining program.
- First, you MUST register for the promotion. (click here to register)
- Earn miles by using the services of two or more participating non-airline partners by February 29, 2016.
- To earn the bonus, registered members need to earn miles with a minimum of two (2) different partners.

3) (FREE) Daily contest to win 1,000 – 10,000 Starwood points + other prizes
