IHG just announced their annual sale which comes at the perfect time right before Black Friday. I am going to chalk this up to one of their Black Friday sales and assume we will not see another hotel-wide discount in the next few weeks. Although, I do believe we will see a Black Friday deal with a 100% bonus for purchasing points!
This sale actually lasts through January 7, 2019 for hotels booked between now and March 31, 2019. Of course the discount varies based on the hotel and the day of the week. One thing to note is that the sale prices are only for pre-paid/non-refundable reservations. So make sure you are pretty certain of your travel plans!
I personally have an upcoming stay at the InterContinental in Boston so wanted to see how the new rate compares. Although I used my annual free night certificate from the credit card (which only costs me $49 a year!). The annual sale rate is a good $20 less than their regular advanced purchase price and the fully refundable rate is a whopping $52 a night more, which is pretty significant.
If you have an upcoming stay at a IHG property, check to see the new rate as it might be worth canceling and rebooking (assuming you have a refundable reservation).
Anyone able to take advantage of this deal?
