IHG has launched an award sale to entice you to stay at some of their lesser known brands over the next six weeks or so. The discount you’ll receive is targeted and seems to range from 15%-25%.

Quick Thoughts

As mentioned above, this appears to be a targeted award sale, at least to the extent of the discount you’ll receive when redeeming points for stays at the four eligible brands. I received an email advising I’d get 15% off, but my wife got one stating she’ll get a 25% discount. I have Diamond status and she has Platinum status, so perhaps it’s based on that, although it might be that they’re offering higher discounts to people who haven’t booked stays as recently.

You need to be logged in to your IHG account in order to see the discount. The way these sales work is that on the search results screen IHG will display a struck through price for the regular pricing and the reduced price below.

IHG 15% discount

It doesn’t seem like IHG has necessarily bumped up award pricing before launching this sale. I have a stay booked at an Avid property during the promotion period that originally cost 15,000 points. When checking the pricing just now, it’s showing that it’s now pricing at 16,000 points for the night (which is to be expected seeing as it’s closer in), but with my discount it’ll now only be 13,600 points. As a result, I’ll be rebooking that to save the 1,400 points.

These types of IHG award sales are particularly useful if you have free night certificates to redeem from an IHG Select card. That’s because those can be redeemed at properties costing up to 40,000 points and can’t be topped up unlike the certificates from IHG Premier and IHG Business Premier cards. Getting a 15%-25% discount means properties that previously cost at least 41,000 points and up to 47,000-53,000 points respectively can now be booked with one of those certificates.

I like the discount points promos IHG runs, but these highly focused ones are mostly useless. Nobody’s even heard of a “Garner” hotel (I think there are 3 of them).I think there are 5 “Even” hotels (they claim a fitness focus). I’ve actually stayed at the Atwell in Miami and would recommend it, but that might be the only one! Avid is their new budget brand — think Holiday Inn Express, but a little worse. I’ve stayed in one and would personally pony up a few more points for an Express.
