Quick Thoughts

This promotion could save you some points on stays in a number of properties around Mexico, Latin America, and the Caribbean. It is regularly possible to buy IHG points for under .6 cents each if you have at least 5,000 points in your account. If you’re starting at 0 points, you can still buy IHG points in the Daily Getaways promotion as cheaply as .576 cents per point (to be clear, that’s just over half a cent per point). We recently wrote about buying IHG points for just .46 cents per point, but that promotion has ended.

Even if paying .576 cents per point, you could save cash on your stays. For example, here is a Saturday in June at the Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos All-Inclusive and the Holiday Inn Express Cabo San Lucas:

IHG Los Cabos

Both properties are on the list for 50% off, so you can see that the all-inclusive Holiday Inn resort costs just 17,500 points per night. If you were buying points through Daily Getaways, it would cost you less than $101 a night to buy the points for that resort (though you can’t buy exactly 17,500 points nor a multiple of 17,500 — I’m doing the math based on the proportionate cost of 17,500 points). The $189.63 rate you see above is a nonrefundable rate. However, reward nights are subject to standard cancellation policy, meaning that a flexible rate is more comparable. The least expensive flexible rate for that same hotel is $210.70. Buying points for the stay would save you more than 50% compared to the flexible cash rate — and $101 a night for an all-inclusive resort certainly isn’t bad.

You would save less money on the Holiday Inn Express, but you’d still save about nine bucks on the rate above.

The following is a full list of participating properties:

Several properties could be a solid value even on purchased points. If you have accumulated IHG points and were considering a getaway to one of these places, the deal is even better for you.

Which property would be your pick?

[…] Get half off an all-inclusive beach resort with IHG promotion. – This is a pretty epic sale, especially when you can book the all-inclusive properties.  I just wish I had more time to take advantage of the sale. […]


I have heard Cabos isn’t nearly as nice as our beloved Cancun, but that price at $189 is a steal for an all inclusive.

I would try the Cabo all-inclusive. Haven’t stayed there before, but will keep some weekends open and cross my fingers that this promo will show up next year. Cabo is my favorite quick getaway since it’s only a couple hour flight from SoCal.


Hi Lee. I’m seriously thinking Cabo this year, but one question for you (or anyone): Can you ever swim there in the ocean? Or is it in your experience always red flag? (as in too dangerous?) How about nearby resorts or beaches? Any of them have swimmable beach settings in that area? Thanks for any tips/experience here.


“Important to mention that our beach is not swimmable.”

oh man, I could use this, but I’m planning for mid august since airfare was much cheaper then
any idea how much is this one for a family of 4? I wanted to do Ziva Cancun, but after adding two kids (4,6), the price per night went from 25k hyatt points to 37500 points per night
Holiday Inn® Cancun Arenas, Mexico – 20,000 points (all-inclusive)
I have chase UR (with sapphire reserve) and for the moment I booked thru Chase portal a non-all inclusive for about 13000 per night (using the 50% extra redemption). I could do 7000 extra per day, but I couldn’t get my self to spend 37500 points per night, it would be equivalent to around $550 per night through chase portal


Wish I could take advantage of this deal because I’ve got lots of IHG points to burn…but I’m completing my SPG plat challenge in cancun during this time (for a darn good paid rate!). Ahhh the things we do for elite status. Lol
