IHG Rewards Club has launched new Points & Cash discount for stays through December 31, 2019.
Members can save 25% on the cash portion if booked by August 26. The number of points required doesn’t change.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Note that IHG’s Points & Cash awards are essentially all points because they merely sell you the required number of points at a discount for the full award. If you later cancel the reservation, the points purchase part is not and cannot be reversed.
I was not able to pull up the discounted rates for Bangkok but at least they worked for Dallas:
IHG Rewards Club is here selling points at a discount. Some members use this to get around the yearly points purchase maximum as that is essentially what you are doing here (buying points).
The price of a point purchased here varies with the property. If you are planning to buy and cancel (to purchase points), choose the property carefully to get the lowest price.
I am not sure if this sale is valid for properties worldwide or only in North America.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
IHG® Rewards Club members must be logged in to receive 25% savings.
Must book by 8/26/2019
Stay dates include 8/22/2019 – 12/31/2019
25% discount is offered at time of booking and only pertains to the cash cost of bookings.
This offer is subject to the general IHG® Rewards Club membership Terms and Conditions
