Many hotel brands operate timeshares in addition to normal hotel rooms. These timeshare properties tend to be in popular cities and offer the ability to get a larger 1- or 2-bedroom villa for a fixed week during the year. Holiday Inn Club Vacations is out with a new promotion that allows you to get a 3-night stay for about $250, in addition to 70,000 IHG On Rewards points when you listen to a timeshare presentation.
This IHG stay and points offer provides a 3-night stay in either:
You can choose from a $249 + tax offer to stay at a Holiday Inn Club Vacations resort in any of these cities or a cheaper $199 offer when you stay at a partner hotel. In all cases, you can also earn 70,000 bonus IHG One Rewards points by attending a timeshare tour.
These are obviously very cheap rates for these cities, and you can really have a getaway trip for very little money with this offer. The catch is that you need to sit through a timeshare presentation to be able to take advantage of the rate and bonus points.
Generally, you get to choose the time of your presentation while you’re there, and the rest of the time, you can do whatever you’d like in the area. During the presentation, you’re usually required to stay for a specific amount of time, such as an hour, but you’re not under any obligation to purchase the timeshare. You can walk away at the end of the presentation without any guilt.
When you sign up for the IHG stay and points offer, you’ll be prompted to choose the city you want to visit, and if you don’t know the dates you’d like to travel, you’ll be issued a voucher good for a full year. To keep the low rate and bonus points, you need to attend the timeshare presentation, and if you don’t, the rate will increase substantially and you won’t earn the points.
To participate, you may need to be targeted, and there are additional requirements as well, such as age and employment status. The website will show you what you need to be eligible.Hot Tip:
Most timeshare presentations require you to not have sat through the same presentation within a few years, so if you’ve already taken advantage of this offer, you may not be able to do so again.
If you can take advantage of this offer, it does provide a relatively cheap IHG hotel stay and extra bonus points for very little effort. That said, it does require you to listen to a timeshare sales pitch, and these presentations can sometimes feel very uncomfortable depending on the presenter.
