IHG Priceless Surprises, rates of returns.


Both my wife and myself submitted 94 hand written entries for IHG Priceless Supersizes Promotion for $56.01 each. It was quite a bit of hand writing. The Promotion is over and we get the following rates of return:

My Wife filled out 94 entries. Out of 94 only 89 got posted on her account for a total of 53000 IHG points: 84 entries of standard 500 points, plus 1 entry of 5000 points,  2 entries of 2000 points and 2 entries of 1000 points.

I, myself filled out 94 entries. Out of 94 only 90 got posted on my account for a total of 49500 IHG points: 85 entries of standard 500 points, plus 2 entries of 2000 points and 3 entries of 1000 points.

Not sure what was the purpose of the whole process was on the company side. Maybe new testing new a new OCR Handwriting recognition software, maybe something else, at any rate. We were able to collect 100000+ IHG points for $114. It can translate to 5 nights at Holiday Inn, Winter park, Colorado or 2 Night in Continental Hotel, Bora Bora. Not bed returns at all.

I suspect a lot of pieces of not recognized entries will end up on CAPTCHA.
