My phone started buzzing like crazy last night as I was finally drifting off to sleep. Instead of throwing it against the wall, I vibrantly popped up when I saw that I had dozens of emails tiled, “You qualify for a Priceless Surprise!”.
Like most of us, I participated in the IHG Rewards “Priceless Surprises” promotion via the mail-in method by mailing 94 hand-written 3×5 cards and envelopes for a chance to win a minimum of 500 points per entry.
After I finished all 94 of my postcards, I decided to put my husband to work during our flight to Las Vegas – it was time to enter with his IHG account…
I’ll admit that I got a bit of a gamblers rush each time I played, and I was on a pretty nice streak (5,000, 2,000, 1,000, 5,000, 5,000). I thought I was riding a wave when a picture of the Eiffel Tower appeared on my screen for a whole FIVE SECONDS. I legitametly jumped for joy and I may or may have screamed. For a hot second I thought I won the trip to Paris!
Until this message appeared…
I didn’t win this time?!? Where are my fireworks?! WTH! Here I am thinking that every entry generates a minimum of 500 points (I later confirmed that it’s true, and that people have been receiving 500
pity points even with this screen).
But still, talk about some false hope…
Have you seen this screen while playing the Priceless Surprises game? If so, did it lead you on for a few seconds like it did for me?
How did everyone do with the Priceless Surprises anyway?
