This is quite possibly the most exciting post I have ever written on The Ana Mum Diary. I had an email a couple of weeks ago that gave us the chance to be millionaires! I know it sounds unbelievable, but let me explain.
Have you heard of IHG – The intercontinental hotels group? Well if you haven’t, they are simply a huge group of great hotels, that are located all around the world. Hotels like Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Hotel Indigo.
IHG offer a Rewards Club, and this is the world’s first and largest (and importantly FREE to join) hotel loyalty programme. So giving you as a member the opportunity to earn points when you stay at one of IHG’s 4,700 (I know, so many!) hotels worldwide. The points that you earn can be redeemed against a huge array of benefits, experiences and really exciting rewards. You honestly can choose so many different options. Maybe you fancy flights, a hotel, spa breaks, or how about the latest gadget or vouchers for shopping on the high-street. There’s something to treat yourself or your whole family.

Well those rather gorgeous people at IHG (have I told you recently how good you were looking IHG?) made me into a IHG millionaire. A real life (in IHG Points) MILLIONAIRE! Well after much dancing around, and reading up on the site, about the things I might spend my oodles of points on, I formulated to a plan. A plan, that quite frankly SAVED my summer!
This summer is the summer break before my eldest (Nia – 11) starts senior school, and the first proper school holiday that Miss A (5) will have experienced. They are both tired, its felt like a long and hard year, with SATS and everything else school life has thrown at us. I really wanted for us to do some lovely things together, as well as for Tall Dad (who has also had a tough year) and I to spend some time together too.
Well with thanks to IHG Rewards points we will be able to do just that. I’ve now redeemed around 4/5ths of my points, so have booked and ordered lots of things to see and do and use over the summer. It was so simple to redeem points, and the process is really clear.
My Million Points, have gone a really long way, and I’ve managed to choose something from all the different options. I still have some points left, so I’m hoping to do another night away, but for the whole family at the end of summer. Here is what I’ve booked so far though :
We are all ridiculously excited about everything coming up thanks to IHG rewards club. I’m going to be blogging about all of our experiences throughout summer, as are three other bloggers and you’ll be able to follow what we are all up to by following the hashtag #IHGRewardsClub on twitter and Instagram or by following @IHGRewardsClub. I really can’t wait to update you all, as our summer of fun starts.
