Since it is the last day of the month, here is a reminder of a few promotions ending TODAY. Make sure to check these off your to-do list prior to trick or treating!
Today is the last day to…
- Purchase IHG points with a 100% bonus. You can purchase up to 100,000 points per calendar year, so really 200000 points with this promotion. With this offer, you are essentially purchasing points at .5 cents per point which can definitely save you money over paying the lowest possible rate at a hotel. Blog Post
- Book your Hyatt “Point + Cash” reservations. Hyatt is fully devaluing their Point + Cash component of their award chart, but all reservations made by end of day today (for future reservations) will keep the current redemption rates. If there are any properties you think you’ll be staying at, make sure to make those reservations today! Blog Post
- Make any payments through Plastiq with a 1.25% fee. If you make any payments through the bill pay site Plastiq with a MasterCard, you’ll earn Fee-Free Dollars (FFDs) equivalent to the amount paid. Ultimately, this means you are paying only a 1.25% fee on all payments. This could be a great way to earn points or miles. Blog Post
- Request your IHG Spire Status. IHG is handing out a free trial for their Spire status for 90 days.

You then have the opportunity to maintain either Platinum or Spire status if you stay at an IHG property over the next 90 days — 5 nights will get you Platinum status and 10 nights will get you Spire status.
