Kimpton Karma Rewards to Become a Part of IHG Rewards in Early 2018

Almost three years ago I shared the news that the IHG program was improving with the acquisition of Kimpton. Now, almost three years later, we have movement on the amazing Kimpton properties and their Karma Rewards program actually rolling into the IHG Rewards umbrella. This probably isn’t great news for Kimpton Karma members, but by taking three years to roll the two programs into one, it does seem like IHG has given some thought to protecting some of what makes Kimpton special, though it…

Flash Sale: Get a 100% Bonus on Purchased IHG Points for Four Days

Buying points isn’t as great as getting them for free, but it can make sense if you know you will redeem them for something that would have cost you more than you paid for the points. There are some caveats to that, but generally speaking, my family has been known to pick-up some purchased points from time to time when the price is right. For the next four days, many IHG accounts can get a 100% bonus on purchased IHG…

New IHG Fall Accelerate Promo: Potentially Lots of Bonus IHG Points!

These days IHG actually has more interesting bonus points promos than most programs since they somewhat tailor the offers to individual accounts, and they aren’t just run of the mill stay X nights, get X bonus points offers. Instead, they have several different tasks that earn bonuses, and if you do enough of the tasks you can trigger larger points bonuses, so it is a little more fun… at least for those who have brains wired for a little miles…

IHG Points Auctions Worth Watching

Using miles and points for their initial intended purpose of securing hotels and flights is usually the best course of action in terms of a return on you ‘investment’, but every now and then there are exceptions to that usual rule. Using points for experiences can sometimes be a really good value, and often a bunch of fun. Using points for merchandise usually doesn’t offer a good return from a cents per point viewpoint, but there could be exceptions to…

IHG PointBreaks Live: Book Rooms for Just 5,000 Points!

The IHG PointBreaks list is one of the most anticipated deals in family travel as it changes roughly once a quarter, but offers a tremendous opportunity for families to explore for much less as hotels on the list are just 5,000 IHG per night instead of the usual 20,000 – 30,000+ IHG points per night. As I shared when the preview list came out on Friday, you sometimes have to get creative with the list as the roughly 100 hotels available…
