IHG is offering a 15% discount on the cash portion of a Points & Cash stay at IHG hotels worldwide, now through Wednesday, July 19, 2023.

While this offer isn’t anything to get too excited over, the discount may be enticing for those who are looking to save points by spending a combination of points and cash. Let’s take a look at the details on how you can get a discount on your next IHG stay!

What Are IHG Points & Cash Stays?

IHG Points & Cash operates a little differently than other hotel chains. Rather than set a fixed cash rate and a fixed points rate, IHG One Rewards essentially takes the total all-points rate for the night you’re seeking, and divides it into half-points, half-cash rate, where the cash rate is equivalent to purchasing the other half of the reservation in points.

It will likely only benefit those who are truly short on points. As a result, you’re not really saving anything by purchasing the points for the other half of the reservation. Should you need to cancel your reservation, you’ll only receive points back for the entire stay since the cash portion is non-refundable, making this a true outlier for hotel programs.

How To Save

This promotion allows you to receive a 15% discount on the cash component of the rate. Ultimately, this serves as a 15% discount on the purchased points for the reservation. Furthermore, this promotion is eligible for bookings through July 19, 2023, and you need to stay by August 31, 2023.

The offer is not available at Six Senses® Hotels, Resorts & Spas, Mr. & Mrs. Smith Hotels, and Iberostar Beachfront Resorts.

To search for the savings, you need to be logged into your IHG One account online and search for a Points & Cash reservation. The discount will automatically be applied to your booking.

Hot Tip:

Be sure to always check the all-cash rate for any stays, as sometimes the all-cash rate can be worth it to do on its own, without a Points & Cash option.

Final Thoughts

While you shouldn’t necessarily go out of your way to purchase a Points & Cash stay under this offer, if you don’t have enough points and need to reserve an upcoming stay anyways, you may find this offer worthwhile. This latest 15% discount on IHG Points & Cash stays may help you save on expensive last-minute hotel stays this summer!
