Some IHG Members can Save 20% on Award Nights

Grand Place with a body of water

IHG Rewards has launched another award sale. You can save 20% on award stays of 1-3 nights.

As with the previous iteration of this promo, co-branded credit card holders in the United States were given a head start, but selected IHG members were targeted later on.

    • again, due to IHG’s variable award pricing, this may or may not be a true discount…

Not Open to All

However, my wife – who actually needs a hotel stay and has more IHG points and recent IHG stays than me – is not eligible.

Bottom Line

Even though the period for booking (and subsequently staying) is quite limited, it is still nice to see IHG Rewards giving certain members a window to spend their IHG points well. However, the exclusion of many IHG members is very frustrating…
