Quarterly IHG Rewards Club Freebies

I originally posted - and discussed with koland - this quarterly deal in October 2017,
in FREE/BARGAIN — Media Deals (non-eBook/non-audiobook). The discussion thread is included below:

You can read details at: https://www.ihgplc.com/news-and-medi...member-benefit

Excerpt:
Quote:
Kindle Singles and Kindle editions of Amazon Publishing books will be offered to members based upon their membership level:
  • Club members will be eligible to receive one Kindle Single or Kindle book from Amazon Publishing bi-annually
  • Gold Elite members will be eligible to receive one Kindle Single or Kindle book from Amazon Publishing per quarter
  • Platinum Elite members will be eligible to receive two Kindle Singles or Kindle books from Amazon Publishing per quarter
  • Spire Elite members will be eligible to receive three Kindle Singles or Kindle books from Amazon Publishing per quarter
Are any MobileReaders availing themselves of this offer?

No, one does not have to be at an IHG hotel to access the freebies, but yes, one does have to use the IHG app and have an Amazon account (similar to how the monthly Kindle for Samsung ebook freebies deal works).

Here's how to access the free Kindle ebooks:

From within the IHG app, log into your IHG account, then click in this order:
. on the menu bars in the app's upper left corner, then
. on your name/status/points icon, in the upper right corner, then
. on the link titled: "Your Extra Benefits: Kindle eBooks" at the bottom of the page, in the Member Benefits section

The resulting page, where you select the free ebooks, indicates:
Quote:
"IHG customers get one free eBook out of the selection of titles below.
To redeem, first select a book of your choice then click on the appropriate button to continue.
This offer can only be redeemed from this page."
Hope this helps!

Today's April 1, 2018. Happy Easter!

Today's also a new quarter, which heralds a new batch of IHG Rewards Club free ebooks.

I've created a new forum for Quarterly IHG Rewards Club Freebies, because these are eBook deals (which don't belong in the Media Deals forum), and the quarterly eBook offerings span genres. FYI:
  • There's no charge to join the IHG Rewards Club, self-described as "The World's Largest Hotel Loyalty Program" - Click either the previous link or click here to learn more about the IHG Rewards Club, to join it, or to login
  • There are too many selections to list here; interested IHG Rewards Club members can access the quarterly free offerings via the IHG app
  • Instructions for accessing the quarterly IHG Rewards Club freebies, and for determining how many you qualify for each quarter (based on your membership status), are detailed in this forum's original post
  • The selections refresh January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1 each year
  • Correspondingly, the purchase deadlines are March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31 each year
  • The selection categories are listed in this order: "Stories about people", "Literary escapes", "Nonfiction", "Historical influence", and "Comics"

This quarter, I bought:

War Hero: The Unlikely Story of A Stray Dog, An American Soldier and the Battle of Their Lives (Kindle Single)
by Stephan Talty (Author)

Not sure what the other will be; at first glance, it seems all the good ones I've already bought, and the rest don't seem that interesting.

Is anyone else buying Quarterly IHG Rewards Club Freebies?

I’ve been lazy and have ignored acting upon this deal until today. The club/app was super easy to activate, and the free book choices look great. Thanks for your work here Froide!

Me lazy too! Hadn't done this, and now have - although I did have a bit of trouble because things got mixed up with a long-dormant Holiday Inn account of mine from long ago. Didn't take too long to get it straightened out though, and I agree - the choices are good. Good enough, in fact, that I already had several of them Still found two that I wanted - chose one, and put the other on my eReaderIQ list

Thanks again @Froide for pointing this out.

My pleasure! Enjoy your books.

I was well aware this has been a "sleeper" thread, until now, but given IHG's abysmal job making its members aware of this quarterly perq, I'd have felt remiss keeping it to myself.

My three Spire books for this quarter:

The Zig Zag Girl, which I seem to have selected by accident, although the system really shouldn't let you do that. However, I really like it a lot and am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead - my library has the audiobook as an overdrive download, So after listening to a sample I decided to go that route instead. The story itself is rather grim in places, but if you're into quirky books it's a fascinating ride!

Little Boy Lost was my third choice; I have a couple of online acquaintances from the St Louis area, so I figured why not read a book set there? Unlike a library book borrowing, these books count as actual purchases, so I was able to upgrade at the bundled price for the audio edition.

Thanks. Finally took a look at this and even though I haven’t stayed at a Holiday Inn (or affiliate) for at least ten years, my account was still there. Quite a few of the books are in Kindle Unlimited so I added several that interested me to my KU list for future reading consideration and went for something that I wouldn’t normally try.
