Starting at 10:00am ET today, IHG Rewards – the loyalty program of Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn and more – is holding another limited-time flash sale on award reservations where you can score a discount of up to 75% (discounts are 25-75%) on standard rates at participating properties. This is a nice counterpoint to the chain’s PointBreaks discounted awards of 5,000 points per night at random properties all over the world.

You could score a discount award at the Intercontinental Bali.

The flash sale will run for 48 hours from 10am ET today until 10am ET on Wednesday – but these awards tend to go fast, so I would book as quickly as possible to ensure you can get a reservation. The discounted points rates are applicable for stays between November 20 – December 20, 2013.

You can find the full list of properties here, but some of the interesting ones include:

Hotel Indigo New York City-Chelsea (25% Off) for 33,750 points

InterContinental Bali Resort (25% Off) for 26,250 points

InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong (25% off) for 37,500 points

InterContinental Sanya Resort (25% Off)f for 26,250 points

InterContinental Adelaide (25% Off) for 30,000 points

Holiday Inn Bilbao (66% Off) for 5,000 points

Crowne Plaza Verona-Fiera (75% Off) for 6,250 points

Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre (25% Off) for 26,250 points

Hotel Indigo San Jose Forum Costa Rica (75% Off) for 5,000 points

Crowne Plaza Resort Mazatlan (75% Off) for 5,000 points

And several more. While the properties are a bit random – and many are in China – if you find a hotel or destination you’re interested in on the list, you might as well get a decent discount out of it.

If you need IHG Rewards Club points quickly, they transfer 1:1 from Chase Ultimate Rewards (note: transfers usually take 1-2 business days) if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold or Ink Plus cards. The IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card is also currently offering a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points when you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months. That would be enough for 12 PointBreaks nights.

Or simply buy them via Priority Club directly for .7 cents a point using the cash & points method described in this post (#7), making 5,000 points worth just $35.
