50% off Mexico beach resort awards. No IHG Last Minute Reward Nights Sep 2014?

Something is amiss today. This next weekend is the first full weekend of September and there are no IHG Last Minute Reward Nights posted today. This is a first in two years.

IHG Last Minute Reward Nights are somewhat of a flash sale offering 50% reward nights at 25 to 50 hotels for three nights only on the first weekend of each month. That means there should be hotels posted today for 50% reward nights this Friday, September 5; Saturday, September 6; and Sunday September 7.

Instead this message appears when searching Last Minute Reward Nights:

IHG LMRN Sep 2014

“There were no rewards that matched your criteria.”

Has the monthly promotion I dubbed “the most useless hotel loyalty promotion repeatedly offered” gone away?

Or just taking a hiatus for September as IHG pushes 50% off beach resort reward nights for hurricane season in Mexico and the Caribbean?

  1. goood question, re. last minute rewards having gone awol for September — so far.

    Could be IHG is behind the 8-ball with backlog too — from Labor Day holiday, plus pending roll-out of new “big win”

  2. They’ve done away with the program, as of August 3rd, according to a comment to a post on their Facebook page.
