IHG Rewards launches a flash sale today where reward bookings can be made at up to a 75% discount off the regular points rate for 48 hours. You are able to book for stays December 1st – 20th for US hotels and November 20th – December 20th for all other locations. The rates seem to now be bookable and include not just standard rooms, but some properties also have deluxe rooms and junior suites available at the low discounted price.
Act quickly as some of the more popular hotels will likely be gone sooner rather than later. Check the individual cancellation policies, but usually you can cancel until just a little bit before your stay so there is low risk in locking something in now. Remember you can essentially purchase IHG points for .7 cents per point or transfer them in from Ultimate Rewards if you are running low.
Just to give you a feel for these “prices” at .7 cents per point, here is the cost for some of the hotels in this Flash Sale.
Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport – 5,000 points ($35)
Holiday Inn Express Lubbock – 5,000 points ($35)
Hotel Indigo San Jose Costa Rica – 5,000 points ($35)
Intercontinental Bali Resort – 26,250 ($183.75)
Holiday Inn Resort Half Moon Bay – 6,250 points ($43.75)
