How to Book

You can book hotels for only 48 hours starting at 10:00 am Eastern Time on Monday, November 18, 2013.  I’ll have a post on Monday to remind you when booking opens.

You can book hotels – in the US –  from December 1, 2013 to December 20, 2013.  So this excludes the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

But you can book hotels – outside the US –  from November 20, 2013 to December 20, 2013.

Interesting Hotels

You can find the entire of list of hotels in this thread on the IHG website.

Here’s what looks interesting to me.  But it doesn’t matter what looks interesting to me as long as YOU find something which works for you.

The InterContinental in Hong Kong, Crowne Plaza in Queenstown, the Holiday Inn in London, Holiday Inn in New York – Chelsea, are hotels which usually cost a lot of cash so this is a good way to get them for less.

Holiday Inn Express Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Holiday Inn Paris – Elysees

Earning IHG Rewards Points

You can get IHG Rewards points by:

Usually, transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to IHG Rewards is not the best value, but it certainly could make sense for hotels on the PointsBreak list.

If you’re not averse to using the cash and points trick, you can use the cash and points trick to buy IHG Rewards points and then get a statement reimbursement of 1 cent per Ultimate Rewards points.  This is a better value than redeeming Ultimate Rewards points directly for IHG Rewards points.

Bottom Line

This is a great deal if your travels takes you to any of the cities on the 24 Hour Flash Sale list.

It doesn’t hurt to make a booking using points, because you can usually cancel them without a penalty (but read the cancellation policy before booking).

@Jeff - I'd check on Monday to see if there are any rooms.

@Joel - Thanks!

I have need of a room in December for one night. They have rooms available, but "no rewards nights available".

So, are there any tips or tricks (like scheduling for a different night and then adjusting the schedule, or maybe calling an agent to have them set up manually, or buying with cash and then trying to change to points?) that I might be able to use?

Or is it possible that they have rooms held back that might be available if I check in on Monday? Would help me out a ton if anybody has any suggestions. Thanks!!
