IHG is currently running a new version of their Big Win promotion, called Into the Nights. The promotion is more than a bit confusing since different people have received different offers, and IHG themselves didn’t really do a good job of being clear on the specifics.
But, I’m throwing my hat in the ring. View from the Wing has gotten written confirmation that the promotional free nights you can earn can be redeemed at any property (yes, even InterContinental properties) as long as there is reward availability.
Here is a link to register if you haven’t already.
My offer was simple, and the way I choose to use it is stay two nights twice (four separate reservations), get 2 free nights.
For me it means if I find a cheap Holiday Express location to stay at I can turn around and use the free nights at an InterContinental property like say, InterContinental The Clement Monterey. What offer did you get, and does it make sense for you to do yours?
