On Friday, December 11 I received 21 prize e-mails from IHG Priceless Surprises.
It seemed that the e-mails were arriving on Fridays but I failed to receive any more the following week! My guess would be that the prize administrator, Hello World was a bit busy getting flooded with mailed in entries.
At that point I had earned 11,500 IHG points from the 21 e-mails I received.
Yesterday I was happy to see that another 20 prize entries had arrived in my inbox! These e-mails arrived on a Wednesday so the Friday arrival day was no longer the only day we should be checking our in boxes.
I was excited to see what I would win and eagerly opened e-mails and played the game.
During this round of play, I earned:
- 16- 500 point prizes
- 1- 1,000 points prize
- 1- 5,000 points prize
My total came to 14,000 IHG points! Not bad at all! I was really surprised when I won 5,000 points. Definitely not a bad prize!
I also received five entries of 0 points. This doesn’t really add up since it appears that I now had 23 entries.
A reader asked if we could play the IHG Priceless prize links multiple times. I had to give the idea a try when I got my next batch of emails. I refreshed the link of one of my entries and received a message that I didn’t win this time.
I decided to go back to finishing off the links from each e-mail before refreshing used links when I was all done.
According to what I wrote down, play #21 won me 500 points!
I then refreshed the screen two times getting no points each of those times. I decided to give up and not play around any longer. I then decided to reopen one of the prize e-mails I received and click the link. This led to a page that said I didn’t have any game plays left.
One other thing I noticed. I found out from a reader that Priceless Surprises points should post in 6 weeks.
When we win prizes, it says to look out for a second e-mail on how to claim them. From the info in the above link it states that the win screens were supposed to be updated to say that points would post in 6 weeks. It appeared that there would not be any second e-mail for our prizes.
However, when I won this newest round of prizes the image still stated to “check your e-mail for more details on how to redeem your Priceless Surprise“.
I’ve now won 25,500 from 41 (or 42-44) prize e-mails. I’m hoping to see more e-mails come through in the near future. I also need to finish writing my final 14 entries!
Did you enter IHG’s Priceless Surprise. If so, how many points (and prizes) did you win?
