The discounts discussed in that post had been around for a number of years. Unfortunately, with the improving economic situation, it seems that IHG is clamping down on special offers.
Two of the most popular offers – the 2-4-1 rate and the 3-4-2 rate – seem to have disappeared entirely. I cannot get them to appear even for hotels where they were normally certain to pop up, such as the Holiday Inn Ariel at Heathrow.
The ‘Exclusive Prepaid Rate A’ rate, which gave a 35% discount, has also gone as far as I can tell.
What IS still working is the IHG ‘Friends & Family’ rate, which you can access via this link. However, you can 100% certain that you will NOT earn IHG Rewards Club points on this rate. With so many bonus codes around at the moment, you would probably be worse off using ‘Friends & Family’.
A new replacement deal?
I wrote last week about the new ‘10% off weekend stays’ offer for all IHG Rewards Club members. This deal is simple to understand, as it shows automatically when you log in. It also applies to all hotels. However, this deal is due to end on 28th February.
There is one new offer about. Via IHG’s ‘Green Room’ discount site, there is a ‘30% off Partnership Rate’. This is offered to members of a wide range of associations and groups, but you don’t necessarily need a voucher – all Leeds United fans qualify, for example.
There are still deals out there for IHG Family properties, but they are certainly less generous than they were.
