Update: One or more card offers in this post are no longer available. Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers.

From March 1, 2019, through the end of this year (December 31, 2019), you can get the 3rd night free on stays of 3+ nights at participating InterContinental hotels.  You can earn up to 2 free nights per stay, so if you book 6 nights you’ll only end up paying for 4 nights.  This can be a good hotel discount of ~33%.

To qualify, you need to book your stay by March 10, 2019.  You’ll need to book direct with IHG, and there are restrictions on which rooms are eligible for the deal.  So it’s not an offer that makes sense for everyone.

Getting a free night (or two) at the InterContinental Singapore is a meaningful hotel discount

Hotel Discount With the IHG Extend a Stay on Us Promotion

The way this promotion works is you’ll need to book a stay of at least 3 consecutive nights at a participating InterContinental hotel, and the 3rd night is free.  Only paid stays count.  The discount only applies to the “Best Flexible Rate” for a Club InterContinental room, suite or villa.  And a 1 night non-refundable deposit is required.

The 59 participating hotels include:

The biggest catch for this promotion is that standard rooms don’t qualify.  So you’ll want to do a bit of price comparison to make sure you’re getting the best deal for you.

To get the 3rd night free, you need to book direct through IHG.  So 3rd-party sites like Expedia or Orbitz won’t earn the discount.

But if you have the Citi Prestige Card you should be able to combine its 4th night free benefit with this deal.  Just remember that you’ll need to book through the Citi Concierge, otherwise if won’t count as a direct booking.

Good article, but I don’t think the section I pasted below is accurate as you can only book two nights max with PointBreak thus not being able to take advantage of the 4th night free with the credit card promo.

If one of the PointBreaks hotels work for your travels you could actually spend 4 nights at a 5,000 point per night PointBreaks hotel for just 15,000 points total. That’s just $75 for 4 nights or ~$19 per night!

Hi Mike,

The PointBreaks site says you can “only book two PointBreaks® Reward Nights reservations per hotel.”

The way it’s worded is confusing, but you can actually make up to 2 reservations per hotel, but those stays can be for multiple nights. I hope that helps.

Oh okay, thanks clarifying. Agreed it is confusing and I’ve only used the PointsBreak promo once or twice, but both times was just for one night each. So to confirm you can make a reservation for as many nights as you want (or as long as there is availability)? For example, I could make two separate reservations at the same hotel and one for 7 nights duration and the other 4 nights and each night is only 5,10, or 15k points depending on the hotel? If so that is great news.

That’s right, as long as there are available award nights the length of the stay isn’t limited!

Hi jason,

Tks for the excellent write-up.

If the hotel is booked under my wife’s ihg acct, to get the extra points from chase ihg credit card, can I charge to my ihg card instead of hers?

Yes, you can pay with any credit card.

alex, mine has a promo that earns 5k pts for staying at 2 brands, will booking with all pts be counted to earn the bonus? TIA

Hi Dan, unfortunately, stays booked with points won’t count toward the IHG Double Points promotion.

thx jason… guess that the pts + cash booking won’t count as well?

I don’t think it will, Dan. Here is what the terms say:

Bonus points are not issued for Non-Qualifying Room Rates or Non-Qualifying Stays. “Non-Qualifying Room Rates” or “Non-Qualifying Stay” include the following: net wholesale individual and group rate, certain package rates, employee discount rate, friends and family rate, crew rate, special discounted contract rates, seasonal worker/crew rate, 50% travel club discount rate, travel industry discount rate, distressed passenger rate, IHG® Rewards Club Reward Nights/Airline Hotel Reward rate, rates booked through third-party web sites, complimentary hotel Stays and any other rates not defined as a Qualifying Room Rate at IHG®’s sole discretion.

I didn’t see Points + Cash specifically listed, but I’m guessing it falls under the rewards night category.

thx for the details! need a stay later this wknd in denver, co where the HI xpress in Broomfiled has a 10k pt pt break; went ahead to book that with pt instead of cash rate @ $92/n
