I love a good flash sale (very good sale for very limited time), and IHG Rewards has a preview site up today for their own flash sale where reward bookings can be made at up to a 75% discount off the regular points rate for 48 hours beginning on Monday at 10AM EST. You will be able to book for stays December 1st – 20th for US hotels and November 20th – December 20th for all other locations.
Here are a few examples of how this can really reduce the number of IHG Rewards points needed for a reservation:
InterContinental Bali, Indonesia – 25% off (will be 35,000 points)
Holiday Inn Resort Half Moon Bay, Saudi Arabia – 75% off (will be 6,250 points)
Hotel Indigo San Jose, Costa Rica – 75% off (will be 5,000 points)
Crowne Plaza Resort Mazatlan, Mexico – 75% off (will be 5,000 points)

Starting on Monday at 10AM EST, you will be able to make your flash sale bookings here. I will try to do another post then to remind you to go book, but I would recommend looking now or over the weekend to see if any options look good to you as the popular choices often go quickly during these sorts of sales! Do you see any properties that you will be trying to grab when the list goes live on Monday?
