(EXPIRED) 12% back on IHG stays via UPromise shopping

UPromise Shopping is currently offering 12% cash back on Holiday Inn Express stays. Note that while Upromise lists other IHG brands at 3%, it is likely that you could click through the link for Holiday Inn Express and score 12% back even if booking another brand.

In the course of searching for first class awards, I stumbled upon something very…
