I wrote about this last week, but I wanted to mention it again in case you didn’t see it or meant to book something but forgot.  The deadline to book this 50% off award sale is August 28th (Sunday)

IHG is currently offering 50% off awards for a variety of hotels and resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.  You need to book by August 28th and stay between September 1st – October 30th, 2016


There are 23 hotels participating in the promotion, in 5 different Latin American / Caribbean countries.  Here are the new point values during the promotional period






Puerto Rico

Using points at an all-inclusive resort can be a pretty good way to maximize your points.  If you look at something like the Holiday Inn Resort® Montego Baya 1 night stay for 4 people costs $202, or 17,500 points


That’s 1.15 cents per point, which is a pretty good redemption for an IHG point.  If you look back at the Daily Getaways from two weeks ago, you could buy 75,000 points (enough for 4 nights) for $443, compared to paying $808!  You can actually get it a bit cheaper as you can manufacture IHG points as low as 0.6 cents per point, which would count those 75,000 points for as low as $420.

Good luck out there and happy booking!
