IHG Rewards Club Points + Cash Offer: Get 5,000 Points Back (Targeted)


IHG Rewards Club has a new targeted promotion trying to get member to book using the Point + Cash option.

IHG Rewards Club Points + Cash Offer

Targeted members get 5,000 points back by trying this award type between April 15 and July 15, 2014.

You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.

Edit: The terms and conditions only state that you must book between the promotional dates. The stay could perhaps be outside of this period as well.

Points + Cash basically means that you can exchange 5,000 points per night for $40 or 10,000 points for $70. IHG Rewards Club actually sells you the points and then withdraws the full amount from your account. These are considered award nights and have the same availability.

You can only get the 5,000 bonus points back once.

Rate example for InterContinental Hong Kong

IHG Rewards Club Points + Cash Offer IC HKG

You have two options: 40,000 points + $40 or 35,000 + $70. By choosing either one of these option, you could get the additional 5,000 points.


IHG Rewards Club’s Points + Cash is essentially just buying points at 0.8 cents (by choosing the 5,000 points option) or at 0.7 cents (at 10,000 points level). This offer makes this even sweeter by throwing in another 5,000 points for free.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

IHG® Rewards Club members who do not cancel their Reward Night reservation by the cancellation deadline and do not use their reservation (no-show) are still subject to a no-show charge for the first night of the reservation, plus tax, per room, billed to the credit card used to guarantee the reservation upon booking. The points redeemed for the no-showed Reward Night reservation will be re-deposited into the member’s IHG® Rewards Club account.

Points & Cash Reward Nights may only be redeemed online at www.ihgrewardsclub.com. Point purchase amounts are subject to change by PCR. You must use a valid credit card for points purchase. Upon completion of the points purchase, you agree that the total dollar amount will be immediately charged to the credit card you specified. The cost for the points purchased is non-refundable. If the Reward Night is cancelled in accordance with these Terms & Conditions and with each hotel’s cancellation policy, the purchased IHG® Rewards Club points will be re-deposited into your IHG® Rewards Club account.

All other Reward Night terms and conditions apply.
