IHG Rewards Club has a 24-hour flash sale for 50% to 75% off hotel reward nights at more than 100 hotels worldwide beginning 10am ET Monday, October 21 for stays from October 23 through November 22, 2013.
There are some good reward night discounts here if the hotels work with your plans. InterContinental Madrid for 10,000 points (75% off) is one example of a good deal reward stay. This hotel can also be booked for 5,000 points + $40 per night when the published rate is 136 EUR or $186 USD per night. 5,000 points saves $146 per night and that is nearly $30 per 1,000 points redemption value.
Looking over the hotel reward discount rates, I realize that there are some good opportunities to conserve even more points with Points & Cash rates. For example Crowne Plaza Charlotte, NC is 7,500 points per night at 75% off for a hotel with $179 BAR rate. Yet, the Points & Cash reward night is only 2,500 points + $40.
Hotel Indigo London Paddington shows 45,000 points when I checked reward nights on several dates. There were a couple of other hotels where I did not see discount reward nights available.
Crowne Plaza Monroe S. Brunswick (75% Off)
InterContinental Madrid (75% Off) for 10,000 points.
