You can get 50% to 75% off award bookings at select IHG Rewards hotels, starting at 10:00 am, Eastern Time, TODAY !
Here’s a list of all the hotels which will have reduced awards. The discount is only valid for stays in the US between December 1, 2013 and December 20, 2013. And between November 20, 2013 to December 20, 2013 for stays outside the US.
You have only 48 hours to book the hotels at the lower price.
I’d book the hotels as soon as possible, because they could get sold out and you can usually cancel for free (but double check the cancelation policy before booking).
So check if your travels takes you to these cities!
Here’s what looks interesting to me, but I don’t like that you have to stay by December 20, 2013. I just can’t drop everything and go somewhere (as much as I’d like to!)
But it doesn’t matter if they are interesting to me. What matters is that YOU find them interesting and can save money or points by booking them!

Earning IHG Rewards Points
You can get IHG Rewards points by:
- Using Cash & Points to buy points for 0.7 cents per point.
- Transferring Ultimate Rewards points from your Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold, or Chase Ink Plus.
- Applying for the IHG Rewards credit card for 80,000 points. It also includes a free night every year, after your 1st year which makes up for the annual fee.
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.
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).
