IHG recently announced a promotion where you can get 15% off all award stays. Originally this was only marketed towards for credit card holders, but now has opened up to select elite members as well. This can be a great opportunity to book award stays using IHG points, or even rebook existing stays for fewer points possibly. Now, since IHG doesn’t have an award chart at all to tell you how much these hotels “should” cost, giving 15% off is potentially not very useful, but it’s still worth checking out to see if the promotion makes sense for you.

I was not able to find a page on IHG’s site that specifically laid out the promotion, but you can view the 15% off discount on IHG’s site here when making a points reservation.

IHG 15% Off Award Stays Deal

This deal originally went out to select IHG members via email, but even if you didn’t get the email, you may still be eligible. According to One Mile at a Time, the details of the promotion are as follows:

  • The promotion ends April 5, 2023 (Wednesday, emphasis mine)
  • Good on stays through May 12, 2023
  • This is available to those who have the card_name or card_name, as well as non-cardmembers who have IHG Platinum or IHG Diamond status
  • The offer is only available for stays of up to three nights
  • The 15% discount is offered at the time of booking (you should see both the original price and discounted price listed)
  • This can also be applied to Points & Cash bookings, but only the points portion is discounted

To check if you’re eligible, just log into your IHG account and do a point reservation. If you’re eligible, you’ll see the “original” price and then the 15% off discount below.

Great For Free Night Certificates And Rebooking

This award sale can be great for people using one of the free night certificates that come with the various IHG credit cards. Those certificates are good for 40,000 points per night, so this can mean the difference between being able to use one of your certificates directly vs. having to top it off with extra points.

Remember too that most points reservations are cancellable without any penalty, so if you already have a points reservation booked for the time period above, you can check and see if it would make sense to cancel and rebook (if it’s at a lower rate than when you originally booked it)

The Bottom Line

IHG is out with a promotion where you can get 15% off select award bookings. This is a limited time offer that is only good if you book by April 5th (Wednesday), so you’ll want to act now if you’re planning on taking advantage. If you have any existing award bookings during the promotional time period, you’ll also want to check on those and possibly rebook them.

Good luck and happy travels!
