IHG has launched a new points sale in which IHG Rewards members are being offered a mystery bonus. Normally with these promotions you see people being targeted for bonuses ranging between 70% through to 100% but, in this instance, I've yet to hear of anyone who isn't seeing the 100% bonus....and I've seen or heard from at least 30 accounts so far.
IHG has launched its "Easy Like Summer" promotion in which it's offering a number of incentives to those ready to book travel for stays in the next 3 months (approximately). Three separate incentives are on offer covering discounts on room rates, bonus points and extra savings through IHG's fuel rewards program so there should be something here for everyone.
IHG Rewards has just announced a flash sale in which members can buy points with a 100% bonus. The sale sees the new maximum purchase limit (100,000 points) maintained and, in some cases, offers a good opportunity to book hotels at a nicely discounted rate.
IHG Rewards has just released the latest PointBreaks list which covers stays between 1 May 2018 and 31 July 2018 so, after a bit of teasing over the weekend, we now know which properties can be booked for 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points per night.
In January IHG changed how its popular PointBreaks promotion works quite dramatically. Where once all participating properties cost 5,000 points per night now we have properties where the cost of an award night ranges from 5,000 to 15,000 points. It was a devaluation of sorts but not one that was particularly heinous. The PointBreaks promotion had mostly gone stale before the changes were put through as it was getting harder and harder to find any properties on the list that were worth visiting.
IHG Rewards is currently running a points sale in which its offering an 80% bonus on purchases of 30,000 points or more and, to sweeten the pot, IHG has also increased the number of points you can buy in a calendar year. That all sounds ok and, as I'm about to show you, I could easily make an argument that says that some of you should be buying points right away...but I'm also going to show you why I think most should stay away from this sale.
IHG Rewards is back with another "IHG Accelerate" promotion for 2Q 2018 and with Hilton's promotion looking only ok, Marriott's latest promotion looking pretty terrible and Starwood's promotion looking even worse, this is likely to be one of the better opportunities we're given to earn hotel points over the next 3 months.
Just a quick note to remind readers that the IHG Rewards Flash sale which started a few days ago will end tonight at 11:59pm Eastern. I wrote about the sale in detail on the day it launched (follow the link for full details and thoughts) but, for those who missed that, here's a recap.
IHG Rewards has just announced a flash sale in which members can buy points with a 100% bonus. There's nothing particularly unusual about this as IHG has been offering 100% bonuses on points sales with increasing frequency...but there is one oddity that IHGRewards has thrown in this time.
IHG Rewards released full details of its first PointBreaks list of 2018 yesterday and, as well as being the first list of the year, it was also the first PointBreaks list to offer properties at three different price points. Gone is the old list where all properties cost 5,000 points per night and, in its place, is the new list where properties cost 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points per night. On the face of things this may seem like a devaluation but, as I explained yesterday, the old PointBreaks lists were so full of properties no one really wanted to visit that they were almost completely useless.
