Save 15% off IHG Rewards Club ‘points and cash’ hotel redemptions

IHG Rewards Club members can currently save 15% on the cash part of a points & cash redemption.

Depending on the hotel, you can redeem as few as 5,000 points with a cash payment on top. 

Importantly, the cash option is 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.

Crowne Plaza Belfast

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 (ie you save 15,000 points by spending £82) which is just 0.55p per point.

During this 15% off promotion, it is an even better deal.   You can book the room above for 10,000 points plus £68, a saving of £14.  This means you are “paying” 0.45p per point.

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 £68, and later cancel, you will receive back 25,000 points and no cash.

The booking page for this offer, and full terms and conditions, are here.  You need to book by 28th September for stays by 28th October.
