IHG Rewards Club is offering members 15% off the cash portion of Points & Cash reward stays for bookings made by November 29, 2017 for hotel stay reservations completed by January 31, 2018 when you book during IHG’s Your World Sale. This offer is available at IHG brand hotels worldwide. The offer is in my account today when I search rates.
I was not offered 20% off Points & Cash bookings flash sale promotion a couple of weeks ago that was targeted to a subset of IHG Rewards Club members.

InterContinental Monterey The Clement
2 night stay Mon Jan 22 – Wed Jan 24, 2018
$645.82 USD after tax best flexible member rate
80,000 points + $195.50
($195.50 is 15% off $230. Normal Points & Cash $115/night rate to buy 20,000 points at this hotel).
$645.82 – $195.50 = $450.32 saved with 80,000 IHG points.
IHG Rewards Club points redemption value = $5.63 per 1,000 points for this sample reward stay.
The $195.50 cost to buy 40,000 points for this 2-night award stay is buying points for $4.89 per 1,000 points.
Key point is this IHG Rewards Club Points & Cash discount allows IHG Rewards Club members to buy points for less than the room savings provided when points are redeemed.
