If you were already planning on booking a Points & Cash rate – or want to buy IHG points at a discount – a 10% discount is an added bonus. Note that although you can make reservations right now, the offer is only available for stays from June 24 to August 15.
The usual Points & Cash discounts are as follows:
- 5,000 points = $40
- 10,000 points = $70
- 15,000 points = $99
- 20,000 points = $125
With this discount, you’d be getting the following discounts:
- 5,000 points = $36
- 10,000 points = $63
- 15,000 points = $89
- 20,000 points = $112
If you booked a rate with the maximum discount of 20,000 points per night, you’d effectively be paying 0.56cpp. If you cancel your Points & Cash booking, IHG Rewards Club credits those 20,000 points per night to your account rather than refunding the $112 per night.
IHG recently offered a 100% bonus when purchasing points which meant you could buy them for 0.5cpp, so this opportunity isn’t quite as good. However, if you need some IHG points for a specific redemption, this offer can still provide great value.
For example, if you booked three nights at a hotel using the maximum Points & Cash rate and subsequently cancelled the reservation, you’d get 60,000 points for a cost of $336. We’re currently staying in a Candlewood Suites which we booked using 15,000 points per night. If we’d bought those points using this offer, we’d effectively have paid $84 per night. The nightly rate for this Candlewood Suites when I made the reservation was $150.77, so we’d have saved 44% versus paying cash.
As the terms note, you have to be logged in to your account in order to see the discount.
