My Top 10 Category 1 & 2 Hotels In The US

Hyatt Place Austin Round Rock

If you only get to go on vacation once or twice a year for a few days at a time, it can make sense to save up your hotel points and redeem them for luxury properties so that you can maximize your enjoyment at the destination. My wife and I take a different approach though. We’ve lived in hotels and Airbnbs for the past 2.5 years or so, so we usually only redeem points for…

SimplyMiles IHG 3x

The American Airlines SimplyMiles card-linked program has a great new offer available if you have an IHG stay coming up in the next six weeks. They’re offering 3 miles per dollar spent at IHG properties when paying with a Mastercard linked to your SimplyMiles account which is great seeing as IHG credit cards are Mastercards.

How I Made 2 Successful IHG Best Rate Guarantee Claims

How I Made 2 Successful IHG Best Rate Guarantee Claims

A year or two ago I tried making a Best Rate Guarantee (BRG) claim with IHG but was unsuccessful. Following my recent successful BRG claims with Hyatt and Marriott, I decided to give them another try. My first claim was declined, but my two follow-up claims were both approved. The reason my initial attempt was declined is due to a quirk in IHG’s Best Rate Guarantee policy which is different to that of Hyatt and…

IHG 4x More Promo 2020

It’s been a few weeks since IHG’s last quarterly promotion ended, but they’ve finally opened registration for their next promotion. While it’s not as lucrative as their Accelerate promotions have the potential to be at times, it could be very rewarding for anyone who’ll be having paid stays totaling 15+ nights by mid-May, especially if they also have the IHG Premier credit card.

R.I.P. Or Just Farewell? IHG Not Releasing New PointBreaks List (Yet?)

InterContinental Alpensia Pyeongchang Resort

Well, that stinks. We were expecting IHG to release its first PointBreaks list of 2020 yesterday, but they’ve now confirmed that they won’t be publishing a new list. IHG’s PointBreaks program had been running for more than 10 years and used to be excellent. For most of its lifetime, 100+ IHG properties worldwide would be reduced to only 5,000 points per night for 2-3 months at a time, with many providing excellent value. If I…

Cashback, Hotel Points, Free Food & More: How To Maximize Grubhub

Grubhub Gift Card

A lot has been written about DoorDash in recent days due to their new partnership with Chase. Seeing as my wife has a Chase Sapphire Reserve card, I’ll be testing them out in the coming weeks if for no other reason than to use up this year’s $60 credit as I’m not one to pass up free meals (as my stomach would attest). DoorDash isn’t the only food delivery service out there though. We’ve become…

IHG Now Allowing Passwords Rather Than PINs

IHG reset password

It’s taken many, many years, but IHG Rewards Club has finally enhanced security so that you can log in with a password rather than a PIN. A password is apparently required when customers register for a new IHG Rewards Club account, but existing members aren’t currently being forced to change their existing PIN. It’s a good idea to proactively make this change though and it’s easy to do. When logging in, click the ‘Reset Password’…
