Unlike with other hotel programs, IHG Rewards Club Points + Cash awards are available at all the properties because IHG merely sells you the points and then redeem the award nights using full points.

Some properties now show a third option of 15,000 points less + $90. IHG Rewards Club basically sells you the points for 0.6 cents each.

Here are the current options:

5,000 points for $40 = 0.8 cents each

10,000 points for $70 = 0.7 cents each

15,000 points for $90 = 0.6 cents each


You can use this Points + Cash basically to purchase points at 0.6 cents each. If you happen to cancel one of these reservations, the full points will go back to your account. Just don’t go overboard with canceling Points + Cash awards.

The way IHG Rewards Club handles the Points + Cash awards ensures that all the properties are participating. They just sell you the points and issue an award at full points for you.
