15% back at select Marriott brands via Chase Offer [Targeted]

There’s a new Chase Offer out today good for 15% back at several limited-service Marriott brands up to $47 back. Unfortunately/fortunately I wasn’t targeted on this one as the ability to stack a shopping portal with this may have changed the math on a redemption I have coming up. It’s worth seeing if you have this one available — it would be especially good if you have it on a Marriott / Ritz credit card since you…

[Maybe dead] Lowest ever? Buy IHG points for 0.384c each

Note: I wrote this post and prepared to publish it. I went back to grab one last screen shot after I finished it and the prices seem to have gotten jacked up. I’m hopeful that there are still some dates to be found, so I’m still publishing this post, but beware that this one may have been dead before it was reported unfortunately. Still makes me hopeful that there are others like it to be…

(EXPIRED) IHG points & cash promo: 20% off cash portion (buy points for 0.56c, maybe less)

IHG has launched a new (targeted) promotion to get 20% off the cash portion of a points & cash reservation. These promos have historically been a good opportunity to buy IHG points cheaply. I’m seeing a low rate of 0.56c per point, with packages varying a bit in price from one property to the next. In past sales, certain properties have had even better cash rates, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it were possible to buy…

We’ve scoured the web for the best deals, but we may have missed some.  If you know of any great stopover deals that we missed, please comment below! Istanbul: Turkish Airline’s…

Will IHG Finally Introduce Worthwhile Status Benefits? Here’s What Might Be Offered.

IHG Elite Status

Unlike many in the points and miles world, I actually have a soft spot for IHG Rewards Club. OK, so they nixed my plan to pretty much live in 5,000 point per night PointBreaks hotels on our road trip. However, thanks to having both the old and new IHG credit cards, I get the 4th night free and 10% of my points rebated on our award stays. That means a 4 night stay at a…
