IHG Rewards Club has launched a new promotion where it discounts the cash portion of the Points + Cash bookings by 5% to 15% depending on your IHG Rewards Club status.
The offer is valid for stays through November 30, 2016, but must be booked by September 18.
Note that the linked IHG Rewards Club pages above have incorrect promo validity dates and this offer is not available at the two InterContinental Alliance resorts in Las Vegas.Î
Here’s how the discount is dependent of your status:
– Club members 5%
– Gold members 10%
– Platinum members 12%
– Spire Elite members 15%
Remember that IHG Rewards Club merely sells you the points and then redeems the award at the full points level. If you cancel your award reservation, the points purchase won’t be reversed. The added points will stay in your account.
Here’s display for InterContinental New York:
The price of a purchase point at the 20,000 level is 0.53 cents each ($106.25/20000).
IHG Rewards Club Points + Cash is one way to purchase points and sometimes it is cheaper than buying them outright.
I would not encourage anyone to go overboard and make several transactions and then canceling the reservations. This may adversely affect ones IHG Rewards Club account.
Here are the short terms and conditions attached to this promotion:
• Discount is offered at time of booking and only pertains to the cash cost of bookings.
• Must be an IHG Rewards Club member at the time of booking to be eligible for offer.
• *Bookings for The Venetian® and The Palazzo® hotels are excluded from discounts.
• This offer is subject to the general IHG® Rewards Club membership Terms and Conditions.
