Great Deal: Save 20% On IHG Rewards Award Nights

Great Deal: Save 20% On IHG Rewards Award Nights

10
The offers for the IHG® Rewards Traveler Credit Card, and IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card have expired. Learn more about the current offers here.

Last week IHG Rewards launched an awesome promotion for those with a co-branded credit card. This offer has now been extended to all members globally, so hopefully lots more people can take advantage of this deal.

Save 20% on award stays of up to three nights

IHG Rewards is offering members 20% savings on award stays:

  • You must book between March 22 and April 5, 2022
  • You must stay by May 25, 2022
  • This was initially only available to those with the IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card (review) and IHG® Rewards Traveler Credit Card (review) when logged into their IHG Rewards account; however, it has now been rolled out to all members, and you should see the pricing automatically reflected when doing a search
  • This is valid for stays of up to three nights; presumably this restriction is because stays of four or more nights receive a fourth night free as a card benefit (though admittedly that’s a moot point for non-cardmembers)
  • The 20% discount is offered at the time of booking (you should see both the original price and discounted price listed)
  • This can also be applied to Points & Cash bookings, but only the points portion is discounted

If you have any upcoming travel plans, this offer is definitely worth keeping in mind. And if you have already booked any stays during the offer period but can still rebook, that could be worth doing.

This is a generous offer

This offer from IHG is potentially quite lucrative:

  • Since IHG Rewards largely has dynamic award pricing, you might as well redeem when there’s a further discount on redemptions
  • This is even useful for those with IHG free night certificates; historically these have been capped at 40,000 points per night, so you can get more value with these certificates when the stay is discounted
  • I’d say the major catch here is the limited travel window, as you need to stay in the next couple of months

Bottom line

IHG Rewards is offering a 20% discount on award stays of up to three nights. This promotion was initially launched last week for those with a co-branded credit card, but has now been rolled out to all members worldwide. The discounted price should automatically be reflected when doing an award search while logged into your account.

It could also be worth redeeming an IHG free night certificate during this promotion, since you could book a hotel that costs more than 40,000 points before the discount.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this IHG award discount?

    Just booked a four night stay and, of course only used points for the first three nights. Normally, I normally don't stay that long, but needed to this time for a grandson's graduation. Sure loved seeing that zero points for the last night's stay.

    Thanks.

    A joke in many ways. I booked a hotel in Helsinki for 27,000 points. I tried to rebook to save the meager points and was told that my new rate would be 26,400 points. When I asked for an explanation, I was connected with a new person, then another new person and a third person who quickly disconnected me. If the points were really worth anything I would keep calling to save them but the...

If the points were really worth anything I would keep calling to save them but the experience proves to me why I don't use this card much more than an afterthought.

    I had a room booked at the Intercontinental Doral for the Miami F1 race at a 55,000pt/night rate. I was able to re-book today for 48,000pts. 7,000 IHG points isn't a lot of value, but worth re-booking for the savings.

    Thanks Ben for pointing out the sale, otherwise I would have missed it. This is the thorough/exhaustive coverage that makes OMAAT more than a CC sales platform like many of the sites in the points travel space.

    Awesome. Booked weekend stay. Used to be 30K per night is now 24K.

    Totally fraudulent. A hotel I just booked recently has put its points up 28.5% since yesterday, so the 20% discount is a lie.

    1. Trey Guest

      I'm seeing the same thing for hotels in Bangkok; last week a H.I.Express was 5000 pts/night, now it's 7000. A 40% increase!

  7. ken Guest

    i was checking their rates recently and the hotel had 40K and 42K points consistently on the weekend, a few thousand less for weekdays. Now it is showing 50k and 52K and the monthly point calendar doesn't show the amounts anymore....Two questions:
    1. did IHG just increased the required amount? Is it because of this sale? I am looking at BCN.
    2. Did IHG stopped showing the monthly points calendar anymore?

      I think it's the dynamic pricing. I've been monitoring a couple of properties. And in Jan for an April stay they were asking 40k and 47k a night and they've been steadily increasing the past couple of months to now be 75k and 88k respectively. Similarly, I got another stay, also in April, a couple of months back on a FNA... and that same night now is 55k.

      Bottom line, the 20% discount is...

      Bottom line, the 20% discount is great but, given the window is only for stays thru May, it's very likely people will pay more now even with the discount, than they would have if they'd booked a few months back.

    They also just raised the regular points rate by at least 10%. Not a great deal after all.
