InterContinental Hotels Southeast Asia 12,000 Points per Stay

InterContinental Hotels in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam will earn 12,000 points per stay from November 1, 2010 through December 31, 2011 when booking rate IKPCN. You earn 10,000 bonus points with IKPCN rate plus normal 2,000 points per IC hotel stay. This offer is valid even for one-night stays.  

Rates are about 10% more per night than Best Available, so keep that in mind when booking this offer for more than one night stays. 10,000 Priority Club bonus points is only worth $60 since you can get 10,000 points by booking a Points & Cash award and then cancelling the award.

Five participating hotels include two in Thailand: InterContinental Hua Hin Resort and InterContinental Bangkok, InterContinental Phnom Penh in Cambodia, InterContinental Hanoi Westlake and InterContinental Asiana Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Sample rates eligible for 10,000 bonus points per stay:

  • InterContinental Hua Hin, Wed Dec 15 = 6,000 Thai Baht (US$200)
  • InterContinental Bangkok, Fri Jan 7 = 6,500THB (US$217)
  • InterContinental Phnom Penh, Tue Dec 14 – Thu Dec 16 = USD$130/night
  • InterContinental Hanoi Westlake, Fri Jan 14 = USD$160
  • InterContinental Asiana Saigon, Fri Mar 4- Sun Mar 6 = USD$209

  1. I think you put in a tidbit of knowledge regarding book points and cash and getting 10k points. Have I read it correctly

  2. Mtnlover – Currently Priority Club has Points & Cash set up so that you can make a reservation, but you have to buy 5,000 points for $30 or 10,000 points for $60 before you can complete the reservation.

    If you subsequently cancel the reservation the points remain in your account.

    I have earned points this way by making a reservation that I ended up cancelling when my plans changed.

    Some Priority Club members use this method as a way of buying discount points.

    Unethical perhaps, but at this point in time, I am not aware of Priority Club penalizing members for cancelling Points & Cash award reservations.

    Bottom line: You can buy 10,000 points for $60 through Points & Cash by booking an award and then cancelling it. The points remain in your account after cancellation of the Points & Cash award stay.
