Planning to head to Las Vegas? You're in luck! Now through September 26, you can book a suite night at the Venetian or Palazzo for just 35,000 points. That's half off the usual points rate for these hotels.
InterContinental Las Vegas Suite Promotion
This promotion is valid for a suite at the Intercontinental Palazzo and the Venetian in Las Vegas. Book either hotel for a stay before September 26, 2021 for as little as 35,000 IHG points per night. That's down from the usual rate of 70,000 points per night.
After a thorough search, it seems this rate is only available on Luxury Two Queen Suites and Luxury Queen Suites priced under $280 per night. Rooms over $280 per night can be booked at 60,000 IHG points. Rooms at the Palazzio starting at $143 and rooms at the Venetian starting at $135 (both before taxes and fees), but go upwards of $2k on the weekend.
Use an IHG Free Night Award
Since the discount takes the cost under 40,000 IHG Rewards points, IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card cardholders can apply an IHG Anniversary Night to these stays. You should easily be able to get more than the $89 annual fee in value from this one stay!

Other Ways to Get IHG Rewards Points
If you don't have the 35,000 points, you could transfer points from Chase at a 1:1 ratio. However, that's generally a bad idea since there are much better uses of Chase Ultimate Rewards points. That's why we value Chase Ultimate Rewards points over 3 times more than IHG points.
Instead, you can buy IHG points through its bonus offers. Recently, you could get a 100% bonus — costing just 0.5 cents per point. Now the promotion is just a 75% bonus through August 13, 2021. Still, you can buy points for 0.57 cents each. At that rate, you can buy 35k points for $200.
On more expensive nights, you can get up to 0.8 cents per point in value from your IHG Rewards points through this promotion. That's a solid rate compared to what you can buy IHG points for and the 0.74 cents per IHG Rewards point that AwardWallet users have gotten from recent redemptions.
It seems that rooms at these hotels are much cheaper than usual (normally around $500 a night). So, it only makes sense to offer the rooms for half the number of points. Considering how cheap the rooms at these properties are for some nights, it may not be the best use of your IHG points.
However, it can be a good deal if you have a lot of IHG points or an IHG Anniversary Free Night Award and want to stay in a suite in Las Vegas!
