    No list yet........hopefully one will be posted soon?

    Example:

    Check hotels for reward nights this weekend and see what you find.......

    This offer is available on travel during the first full weekend of every month (the first full Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each month).

    If I read this right they are only available for one weekend, the first weekend of each month.?
     
  7. seems odd they haven't released a list, aren't you supposed to make your bookings from Monday to Wednesday preceding the first full weekend of the month, ie for this upcoming weekend Fri 6th to Sun 8th.

    I find the webpage clunky at best. I did not easily find any way to search by geographic region or even to sort by name or distance to center etc... Sorting points value by high to low does not have much value to me in my search...

    I agree fully. I trust IHG to improve on this, but for now--- "clunky" is the exact right word to use. Well said.

    It is, though best flexible rate is $109 so it's hardly an amazing value.

    Yes, PC needs to add a way to search geographically, for sure. Still it's a nice addition and I may take advantage of a deal sometime..............

    You can view the hotels by state by clicking on the United States (127) tab on the left side of the webpage.

    The news is this program will suck, it's gonna be just like the old web savers where you never got the emails. The only option here is if you happen to already be booked into one of these hotels and then it shows up on the list, you could cancel your paid reservation and get it at a point discount, if your lucky.
    I would suggest if you have any reservations over the first weekend of any month, you check the week before and make sure it's not be being offered for reduced points. It would suck to pay full price and then find out the same rooms were offered at a discount.
