IHG Rewards Club is pushing on its website Crowne Plaza Times Square hotels that is offering 10,000 points Bonus Points Package for 2 night stays until July 31, 2014.
The copy of the web page is misleading. The bonus points is not applicable to any 2 night stay, but you rather have to book this specific 10,000 bonus points rate plan.
You can access this offer on IHG’s web site here.
Here’s the rate display for Crowne Plaza Times Square:
You can only see the bonus points eligible rates by following the link above.
The regular rate search returns all the rates.
This is not a “gift” by any means. You are basically paying for the bonus points. This can make sense if there are no other than best flexible rates available for your dates.
