This week IHG is running a great competition with us to promote their current special weekend offer at hotels in Manchester.
One lucky Head for Points reader will win 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points.
100,000 IHG Rewards Club points could get you:
between 7 and 20 PointBreaks nights if you save them for the next round of heavily-discounted redemptions
six free 15,000 point nights at a mid range property, such as a regional Holiday Inn
20,000 Avios points – or 20,000 miles in most other major airline schemes – if you don’t want a hotel stay
The reason for IHG’s generosity is their current 20% off Manchester weekends promotion, which is running until 7th September for stays until 31st December.
Save 20% on weekend stays at IHG hotels in Manchester
For bookings made by 7th September, for stays until the year end, IHG Reward Club members can book weekend stays at Manchester hotels at 20% off the standard rates.
The offer is valid at the Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Crowne Plaza hotels in Manchester.
(A brand new combined Staybridge Suites and Crowne Plaza is due to open near Oxford Road on 9th September and is well worth considering. The hotel site says it opens in August but you can’t actually book until 9th September. Whilst not bookable under this offer, you can also look forward to Manchester’s first Hotel Indigo near Victoria Station next April.)
Stays must be completed by 31st December 2018.
Full details can be found on this special Manchester sale page of the IHG website.
If you are travelling to Manchester by train, you can also get 20% off your rail ticket. IHG has teamed up with Virgin Trains who are offering 20% off advance off-peak fares to and from Manchester Piccadilly. You will need to show your IHG hotel confirmation to the conductor on the train.
What you can win
There is one prizes of 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points to be won.
IHG Rewards Club points do not expire as long as you have some activity on your account (earning or spending) every 12 months, so you don’t need to worry about spending them in a hurry.
The prize is non-transferable to another person, non-exchangeable and cannot be converted to a cash alternative.
