Targeted: Get 5000 Points Back With IHG

Screen Shot 2014-04-17 at 5.34.53 PM

Yesterday I received a very nice offer in an e-mail from IHG Rewards Club. This offer is being targeted to some members.

The offer: Get 5,000 bonus point back when booking using cash & points.

This offer seems to be a no-brainer. I plan to take advantage of this promotion as long as I can make it work during an upcoming trip in May.

I don’t usually book with cash & points but if I can find a room for 5,000 points + $70 then I’ll go for it. By getting the points back I am then only paying the discounted rate for the night which is a nice little gift from IHG.

Of course like most good offers, there are a couple of rules.

Here they are:

  1. Book a stay between now through July 15
  2. One time bonus offer is only valid to members that received the e-mail

Here is an image from IHG.com which shows all of their hotel brands:

Has anyone else received this offer? If so, do you plan to book a stay due to being offered 5,000 points back?

  1. Are you Ambassador?

    I am Ambassador (Gold), I received a targeted offer which is a 50% bonus on top of the 1,000-5,000 point bonus package. Pretty good, as the extra 5,000 points is usually $25 so 7,500 points for $25 is good! I like your offer better though

  2. I also received the same offer, butI’m not sure what personal need I’ll have in the time period. It’s obviously not worth using it for business (unless the business is yours).

  3. Sean- I have IHG Platinum thanks to having their credit card. You still got a decent offer!

    Sameer- Not a bad deal at all! I am looking at a hotel which would cost me $70 + 5,000. Original room price is $126 so definitely a nice savings.

    Carl- Agreed. Maybe you could find a cheap deal and make a short weekend trip out of the offer… Just an idea.
