[Expired] [Targeted] IHG: 20% Discount On Cash + Points Rates (Points From 0.46¢ each)

Deal has expired, view more IHG deals here.

The Offer

Direct links to offer

  • Save 20% when you make a points & cash booking with IHG. Book by October 20th for stays until December 20th.  The discount will only apply to the cash portion of the rate

The Fine Print

  • IHG® Rewards Club members must be logged in to receive 20% savings.
  • 20% discount is offered at time of booking and only pertains to the cash cost of bookings.
  • 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.

Our Verdict

Best discount is 25% under this promotion, 20% still good if you need the points in the short term. You can use this to effectively buy points at a discount rate. When you make booking it’s made clear that you’re actually purchasing the points and if you cancel your reservation they will redeposit the full points value rather than points + cash. It will usually be something along the lines of:

  • Save 5,000 points & pay $40 ($32 with this discount)
  • Save 10,000 points & pay $70 ($56 with this discount)
  • Save 15,000 points & pay $99 ($79.2 with this discount)
  • Save 20,000 points & pay $125 ($100 with this discount)

The rates will vary a bit from hotel to hotel, the best option is when you save 20,000 points for $115 ($92 with this discount) this makes the points cost 0.46¢ each. The Premier/Travel cards give you a 20% discount when purchasing points, I wonder if that will apply to this type of promotion as they do say you’re ‘buying’ the points? My gut feeling is no, but it’s possible (update: Doesn’t work).

If you’re targeted you could get 20K IHG points for $92 or 20,920 if you book with the IHG premier card.

do you have an example of a hotel that offers saving 20000 points for $115?

I booked a hotel with points and canceled it soon after. Months later when the hotel stay would have been had I not canceled, I was charged a no-show fee on my credit card. The hotel did refund it, but said they never received the cancelation from IHG. It pays to check your credit card charges regularly. 🙂

This is a bit confusing. Is the entire promo targeted or is it a matter of having to find hotels that are available for 20K+$100
