Citi Merchant Offers have been steadily improving, especially in the travel department.

Right now, targeted Citi cardholders should check their accounts for Citi Merchant Offers for $20 back on a purchase of $100 or more at Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts.

Holiday Inn Express locations can often be quite affordable, so if you find a rate for $100, this offer could score you 20% off — which is pretty darn good.

If you want to save some cash on your next stay, take a look at the details of these solid Citi Merchant Offers.

Citi cardholders should check their Citi Merchant Offers for 2 offers from IHG for $20 back on a purchase of $100 or more at Holiday Inn Express and/or Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts.

These offers are relatively straightforward, so as long as your stay falls within the guidelines, you should receive a statement credit of $20 per offer.

Offer details:

  • Registration is required (activate offer)
  • The offers expire on December 31, 2023
  • The offers are valid for room rate and room charges
  • The offers are valid at U.S. Holiday Inn Express or U.S. Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts locations
  • Reservations must be made directly with IHG Hotels & Resorts via

Since room charges are supposed to trigger the offer, you can likely book a room with points, and if you had $100+ in incidental charges, you would receive $20 back.

In theory, booking via a third-party online travel agency (OTA) and billing to your room could trigger the offer as well, but technically that wouldn’t qualify. However, it’s still worth activating this offer if you already have an OTA reservation booked.

As always, check to see if you can stack this offer further by getting additional cash back or miles through other partners such as SimplyMiles or Rakuten.

Final Thoughts

The Citi Merchant Offers program is easy to overlook when compared to competitors like Amex Offers and Chase Offers, but as you can see, it can be just as lucrative.

So if you’re using a Citi credit card, check your account regularly for deals each month to see if you can save yourself some extra money.

Saving 20% on your next Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express stay is possible with just a few clicks!
