Our Verdict

This is one of the few hotel promotions that actually has the ability to change where I book my hotels. Unfortunately my offer sucks as always so I won’t be making any changes to upcoming bookings I have. Let me know what offers you get in the comments below.

2,500 Stay Once Get 2,500
10,000 Stay More, Earn More (5 nights)
2,400 Stay for Less and Earn (1 night Points and Cash which doesn’t count towards the night minimum)
2,400 Big City Bonus (1 night selected New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Orlando or San Francisco hotels)
1,500 Spend on IHG credit card
21,200 Complete 4 of the 5 offers
3,000 Stay once before June 30th and get 3,000 bonus points.

Total 43,000 points.

Although one might be tempted to go for five nights, I would probably do one points and cash night and one night in the major market (I qualify for government rate in California so could get a room in the LA market for $120 or less should I book ahead, basically using it as a get away or as an airport hotel the night before a flight). 33,000 points for two one-night stays. Not bad!

does cash and points count as a “qualifying stay”?

It never has.

Can anyone else confirm this? The terms are pretty generic and I had thought seeing somewhere that this would count.

Ok, confirmed that point+cash do not count as a stay. too bad

Not the worst offer I’ve had, but not super great either. I can get say 10000 with a single stay using my card so I might do that at least.

2,500 Stay Once Get 2,500

10,000 Stay More, Earn More; Stay 5 night(s) and earn 10,000 bonus points. Terms

1,500 Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card Book and pay for one stay with your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card and earn 1,500 bonus points.

Mine seems pretty good this time:

2,500: Stay Once Get 2,500
10,000: Stay More, Earn More (5 nights)
2,400: Earn 2,400 bonus points when you book 1 stay(s) using Points & Cash
1,500: Spend on your IHG® Rewards Club Credit Card
23,600: Complete 3 of the 4 offers and earn (an additional) 23,600 bonus points
3,000: Stay once before June 30th and get 3,000 bonus points

So, if I make one Points & Cash stay and use my IHG card, looks like I’ll get 33,000 points. And I just bought 40,000 points at $0.0054 each this week!

I have the same offer as yours. Have you confirmed one points and cash stay pay with IHG card will trigger the 33,000 points?

Points and cash does not count. 🙁
