IHG’s Award Sale is Now Live

IHG One Rewards is running another award sale – members will receive a 20% discount on the points cost of award bookings that take place before 10 March, 2023.

As with prior versions of this promotion, credit card holders received a head start. Platinum and Diamond members should see the discount starting today, 13 January, 2023.

If you book a Points & Cash stay, you should see the 20% discount applied to both the points and the cash element. (however, IHG is known for increasing the cash element beforehand, so that the prices returns to normal in the “sale”)  And, as always, you must remember that the cash element is charged immediately. If you choose to cancel later, you will receive your refund in the form of points.  (click here for a recent travel hack that took advantage of this)

Do IHG Reward Nights Count for Promotions?

No. The reward nights you book at a 20% discount will NOT count for promotions. (assuming that IHG launches one soon…)

Reward nights DO count for milestone bonuses, elite status qualification, etc.  (click here to be reminded about how the new IHG One Rewards programme works)

Bottom Line

If you have any short-term travel plans, you will want to review any existing award bookings to see if you can cancel and rebook – saving yourself some points…
