IHG Rewards Club has a new “Points & Cash” Rewards Night Sale promotion for 14 participating hotels in China.
You can book this sale for 7 days only from December 1 to 7, 2013, for stays from December 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014.
You can access IHG Rewards Club web page for this sale here.
Note that it seems that you need to call in to the following number: +86 21 2033 4848 to have this rate type booked.
The cash portion includes all the taxes and fees. This rate plan is not qualifying for stay/night credit or points. You pay the cash portion directly to the hotel at the time of check out. IHG Rewards Club withdraws the points from your account within few days after you make the reservation.
The number of points and the cash amounts are brand dependent. I have converted the CNY to USD for easier comparison purposes.
Here’s the list if participating properties:
This type of rate plan is very interesting, as it actually mimics the Cash + Points rewards that other chains have.
IHG Rewards Club’s current Cash + Points is really just IHG selling you the points needed for an award night at a discounted rate.
