The flash sale that IHG had promised would launch today for The Venetian and The Palazzo (InterContinental Resorts) in Las Vegas has launched early! This means the properties are now live for booking at 25,000 points per night instead of the standard 50,000 points per night! This sale will go on for the next 26 hours only.
You can book award nights at these two properties on the Strip in Vegas for dates from March 10, 2015 – December 28, 2015 at 50% the standard award price with the exception of the blackout dates that include:
3/25/2015, Wed, 3/26/2015, Thu, 3/27/2015, Fri, 4/14/2015, Tue, 4/15/2015, Wed, 5/3/2015, Sun, 5/18/2015, Mon, 5/19/2015, Tue, 5/23/2015, Sat, 5/24/2015, Sun, 5/29/2015, Fri, 5/30/2015, Sat, 6/19/2015, Fri, 6/20/2015, Sat, 8/17/2015, Mon, 9/5/2015, Sat, 9/18/2015, Fri, 9/19/2015, Sat, 9/28/2015, Mon, 9/29/2015, Tue, 10/6/2015, Tue, 10/7/2015, Wed, 11/2/2015, Mon, and 11/3/2015, Tuesday.
If you want to take advantage of this sale, remember that if you already have some points in your account, you can also “buy” additional points at a cost of $0.007 each (for a total of about $175 in points per night) – check out this post by Million Mile Secrets for details on that method of obtaining IHG Rewards points.
If you already have IHG points in your account via the 70,000 point IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card sign-up bonus (advertized to end on 3/31), or other methods, those could be perfect to use, too! If you are looking to stretch your points, you can also use cash + points to book the properties starting at 15,000 points + $70 per night.
There are obviously cheaper places to stay in Las Vegas, but on weekends the rates to stay at the big resorts on the Strip can get pricey, so this could be a very good alternative to stay in the middle of the action without spending big bucks!
Thanks to Loyalty Traveler for noticing the sale was live early!
