IHG covers a wide range of hotels across the world. Their top tier brand is Intercontinental, and its most expensive hotel tops at 70k points ( 63k if you carry an IHG credit card). We’re talking hotels in FIJI, NYC, PARIS, LONDON, TOKYO, etc. In fact, one of the most iconic hotels in all of Europe is an Intercontinental: The Intercontinental Carlton in Cannes, France. Rates can crack $800/night in peak season. We used to points to stay there the week before the Cannes film festival. Check out the whole review, but the location can’t be beat and it’s steeped in history. There are a lot of deals to be had, but please don’t buy points speculatively, and ALWAYS double check cash rates. With that being said…let’s take a look at this IHG FLASH Sale where you can buy IHG points with a 100% bonus.
Rates start as low as 5k points per night. Under $30 with this offer.
My account was targeted. Check yours here You’ll need to buy more than 5k for the 100% bonus to kick in.
Here’s a bucket list property: The Intercontinental FIJI! Just 40k a night. $230 if you buy points.
I checked rates in Mid-December…$363 for the same room points would get you for $230. Ambassador? You’ll get a bump up from there.
Also remember if you carry the IHG credit card from Chase you’d get 10% of those points back. Suddenly you’re paying less than $200 a night to STAY IN FREAKING FIJI! Can anyone say #weekendwarrior trip?
