[YMMV] IHG: 15% Discount On Cash Portion Of Points & Cash Bookings

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • IHG is offering a 15% discount on the cash portion of Points & Cash bookings on stays through December 31st, 2017 on bookings made before November 29th, 2017.

The Fine Print

  • IHG® Rewards Club members must be logged in to receive 15% savings.
  • Must book by 11/29/17.
  • Stay dates include 11/27/2017-12/31/2017.
  • 15% 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.
  • Consult Rewards Program Rules and Regulations and product brochure, or your Cardmember Agreement, as applicable, for details.

Our Verdict

Not as good as the recent 25% off deal. Still useful for real bookings and can also be used to purchase points. 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. Normal rates are as follows:

  • 5,000 points = $30 to $50
  • 10,000 points = $60 to $80
  • 15,000 points = $89 to $109
  • 20,000 points = $115 to $135

Best deal is to purchase 20,000 points for $97.75 (normal rate is $115). That works out to be 0.48875¢ per point.

    For these points purchases during booking, does anyone know if the charge comes through as ihg or points.com? It would be useful with cards that let you redeem towards travel charges. TIA

  2. Nil says:

    It comes through as IHG and you also get bonus points for using Chase IHG card. So should be able to redeem for travel credits as well, I would think.

    Even though the promotion terms say that the eligible stay period ends on Dec. 31, I am seeing 15% off cash+points for a stay I’m lining up in Hong Kong in January.

    In fact, playing around with the dates and locations, this appears to be the case for any stay beginning on Jan. 31 or before.
