IHG Rewards Club has launched a new promotion for ‘points and cash’ reward bookings in the UK and Ireland.
If you book before 27th July, IHG Rewards Club members can save 10% on the cash part of a points & cash redemption.
“Points & cash” redemptions let you, as the name suggests, book a redemption room with a mix of points and cash. It is the ideal solution for any IHG Rewards Club member who finds that they do not have enough points for the room they want to book.
You can redeem as few as 5,000 points with a cash payment on top. Importantly, the cash option is VERY good value on a ‘pence per point’ basis. You may even want to use ‘points and cash’ even if you do have enough points in your account, because it is good value and allows you to preserve some points for a future redemption.
Here is some example pricing. A reward night at the Crowne Plaza in Belfast would usually cost:
25,000 points or
20,000 points plus £37 or
15,000 points plus £60 or
10,000 points plus £82
Even without this special offer, you will see that this is a decent deal. If you take the 10,000 points option then you are technically ‘buying’ 15,000 points for £82, which is just 0.55p per point.
During this 10% off promotion, it is an even better deal. You can book the room above for 10,000 points plus £74, a saving of £8. This means you are “paying” 0.5p per point. Compared to buying the points at full price from IHG this works out a lot cheaper unless there is a “buy points” offer running.
Here are the rules:
Members need to be logged in to see the special rates when booking a points redemption
The offer is only valid on stays in the UK and Ireland
You must book by 27th July for stays until 30th September
If you cancel a “points and cash” redemption, you do not get the cash refunded. Instead, the points equivalent of the full redemption is put back into your account. Going back to our Belfast example, if you book the Crowne Plaza for 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points plus £74, and later cancel, you will receive back 25,000 points and no cash.
