IHG to Devalue Over 500 Properties Worldwide
IHG is changing the number of points needed to redeem a free night at nearly 700 of its hotels on January 25, 2019. Although some properties will cost less, nearly 80% of the changes are price increases, so it’s a good time to review your travel plans and see if there are any stays you should book in the next few days.
IHG PointBreaks Available (Bookings Through September 30, 2018)
IHG has updated its PointBreaks promo, where you can book hotels for as few as 5,000 IHG Rewards, for bookings through September 30, 2018. Rooms and properties are limited, so if you’re considering a booking, you’ll want to book sooner than later.
IHG Rewards Card Going Away?
It looks like the life of the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card may be in question. We can’t find the card directly linked at Chase.com, but a google search does drive to mentions of the card. At the same time, the links we have on the blog here continue to work.
10,000 IHG Points Bonus for One Stay at Kimpton Hotels
Following on from its announcement last month that Kimpton Properties are now part of IHG Rewards club, you can now pick up a bonus of 10,000 points for staying in any Kimpton property before April 30, 2018.
Redeem IHG Points & Certificates for Stays at Kimpton
Realizing IHG’s announcement in late 2017, you can now book Kimpton properties using IHG Rewards. In light of the recent price hike of IHG redemptions, this is good news, since it adds a portfolio of over 60 boutique hotels to the IHG property list, increasing your choice and options. You can also use your IHG Free Night certificates awarded from the IHG Rewards credit card at Kimpton properties.
IHG Adds 70,000-Point Per Night Redemption Reward Level
IHG has brought in 2018 just like it did 2017, with adjustments to its award chart. 2018 adjustments impact hundreds of properties across the world, with most increasing in cost by 5,000 to 10,000 points. In addition to adjusting the rates at properties, the more significant impact is that IHG has added an additional level, increasing the maximum cost per night at some of its properties from 60,000 points per night to 70,000 points per night.
3,000 IHG Points Visiting Tourist Attractions

Another 100% Bonus on Points Purchases From IHG – Through December 8, 2017
As one 100% bonus promotion ends with IHG, another one begins. Slightly different from the last promotion, there are multiple tiers of bonus where you can earn up to 100% on points purchases up to a maximum of 60,000 points. The promotion appears to vary by account, but this is what we received.
IHG PointBreaks – 5k Points per Night Through January 31, 2018
The IHG PointBreaks quarterly promotion is back, for stays between October 30, 2017, and January 31, 2018. Stays at PointBreaks properties will set you back 5,000 points per night, which can be a huge saving on the more expensive properties which could set you back more than 50,000 points per night.
