    thanks for posting, might be in need of a couple reservations.

    I'm curious, when they say 75% off, what rate is that off of?

    I attempted to merge this list with the list of Big Win "city" stay properties, at least for those of us who got North American cities. Here's the result:

    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Denver Tech Center-Englewood (50% Off)
    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Mexico City at the WTC (50% Off)
    Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel (50% Off)
    Holiday Inn San Mateo-San Francisco SFO (50% Off) (free parking)
    Holiday Inn San Francisco-Intl Airport (75% Off) (charge for parking)
    Holiday Inn Express Los Angeles-LAX Airport (75% Off)
    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Denver Tech Center-Englewood (50% Off)
    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Fredericksburg (50% Off)
    Holiday Inn Seattle (75% Off)

    Have these flash sales typically been prepaid, non-refundable rates? Or do they have normal cancel terms?

    Nevermind the below; as kellio and Terry point out, it's off of the POINTS rates.

    Let's run an experiment.

    HI SFO airport, 17 October (Thursday): "best available" $170 (as of today, Friday 27 Sept)
    HI SFO, 19 Oct (Sat): $141
    HI San Mateo, 17 October (Th): $184
    HI San Mateo, 19 Oct (Sat): $134
    HI Seattle, 19 Oct (Sat): $121

    Check back on Monday to see the results...

    Pretty sure it's off the points rate. I have no idea if the cash and points rate fits in the scheme.

    Thanks for this clarification. Sorry for polluting the thread with speculation re: paid rates. Looking up some of the 75% off properties:

    Holiday Inn San Francisco-Intl Airport
    Holiday Inn Express Los Angeles-LAX Airport
    Holiday Inn Seattle
    Holiday Inn Edinburgh-City West
    Holiday Inn Macau
    Holiday Inn Express Mackinaw City
    Holiday Inn Express Poole

    All three of these are normally 35,000 points, or 8,750 with the discount. Not quite as good as a PointsBreak, but still useful.

    Yes looks like the discount is off the points rate.
    really wish it was on a paid rate so it could be used for a big win credit.
