Get A 100% Point Bonus When Purchasing IHG Or Hilton Points

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Update: The IHG bonus offer ends tonight!

Originally posted on 06/16:

-IHG: Get 100% bonus points through 06/30.
120,000 points would cost $690 (0.575 cents per point).

-Hilton: Get 100% bonus points through 06/17.
160,000 points would cost $800 (0.5 cents per point).

IHG normally sells points directly for 1.15 cents each. And you can transfer points from Chase, but that’s a criminal use of Chase points. Of course there’s a hack to buy their points at .7 cents each but with the current sale you can buy them directly for less than that without jumping through hoops. And that hack requires that you have points to start with.

You can get the lowest rate with this promotion by buying between 26K-60K points and your point purchase will be doubled.  26K points will become 52K points for $299. 50K points will become 100K points for $575.  Or 60K points will become 120K points for $690.

This promotion expires on 06/30.

You can purchase 120K points per member per year, so you can get up to 240K points with this promotion in 2 transactions of 60K each.  You can also buy up to 120K points as a gift for the same member that already purchased, so you can get up to 480K points per member from this promotion in total.

IHG runs PointBreaks which allows you to book rooms at rotating hotels for just 5,000 points per night.   That’s just $28.75 for a room if you buy points at .575 cents each. Those hotels rotate every couple of months and a new list will be out very shortly.

There are also good values to be had at high-end properties.  The highest tier is 50K points.
-An overwater bungalow in Bora Bora can go for as much as $1,000 with tax but costs just 50K points. That’s just $287.50 at .575 cents per point.
-Intercontinental has a heavy presence in French Polynesia with properties on Tahiti and Moorea islands for just 40K points ($230 at .575).

-Bargains can be had for high end Intercontinental hotels in NYC, Hong Kong, Paris, London, etc. thanks to the 50K redemption level.

There are several IHG hotels in Israel:
Holiday Inn Ashkelon: 10K ($57.50 with this promo)
Crowne Plaza Jerusalem: 20K ($115)
Crowne Plaza Dead Sea: 30K ($172.50)
Crowne Plaza Eilat: 30K ($172.50)
Crowne Plaza Haifa: 30K ($172.50)
Crowne Plaza Tel Aviv Beach: 30K ($172.50)
Hotel Indigo Tel Aviv Diamond District: 30K ($172.50)
Crowne Plaza Tel Aviv City Center: 30K ($172.50)
InterContinental David Tel Aviv: 40K ($230)

Hilton normally sells points for 1 cent each, which drops to half a cent with this promotion.
As far as the potential value, take the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem, probably the nicest hotel in the entire country. A 5 night stay from October 11-16 for example would run $620/night (plus 18% VAT for locals). However it’s just 64K points per night with a 5 night stay or 80K points per night without a 5 night stay.
When buying points for 0.5 cents each that’s just $320 per night on a 5 night stay or $400 per night without a 5 night stay.

Need the full 320K points for a 5 night stay? Just open 2 Hilton accounts in your name, purchase 160K points in each, and then merge the accounts via this link.

3 Hour Flash Sale: Receive A 20% Bonus When Purchasing Fairmont eGift Cards

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Fairmont eGift Cards: US Dollars

Fairmont eGift Cards: Canadian Dollars

This sale is only being advertised on Fairmont’s Facebook page, but anyone that buys eGift cards by 4pm will receive their free bonus eGift cards.

From 1pm-4pm EDT you will receive a bonus $50 Fairmont eGift card for every increment of $250 in eGift cards that you purchase.

In other words if you buy a $500 eGift card you’ll get 2 bonus $50 eGift cards. If you buy a $2,000 eGift card you’ll get 8 bonus $50 eGift cards.
$2,000 is the largest eGift card that they sell, but you can buy multiple eGift cards and still get the bonus $50 eGift card for each $250 that you spend.  There are no limits to how many bonus eGift cards that you can receive.

You can purchase eGift cards in USD or CAD and the bonus eGift card will be in whichever currency that you purchased.

Only the eGift cards qualify for the bonus.

-eGift cards can be used at any Fairmont hotel or Willow Stream Spa to pay for rooms, as well as hotel owned/operated spa, dining, shopping, and food and beverage outlets. You can bring the eGift cards to the front desk at any time during your stay to apply them to your folio balance.
-You don’t need to be a guest to use the eGift card.
-eGift cards never expire.
-There’s no limit to how many eGift cards you can use on a stay.
-You can use part of an eGift card and retain the balance for future use.

Fairmont hotels have a relatively small footprint. You can view a map of their hotels here.  The Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver is one of my favorites (though having a lifetime of free Fairmont suites helps)  It has received awards for being the best luxury hotel in Canada.

Are you a buyer with this promotion? Where will you stay? Hit the comments!

Is It Worth Buying Discounted Points From Hotel Chains? Roundup Of Promotions From Hilton, Hyatt, And Starwood

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

-Hilton: Get 100% bonus points through 06/17.
160,000 points would cost $800 (0.5 cents per point).

-Hyatt: Get 40% bonus points through 05/31.
77K points would cost $1,320 (1.71 cents per point).

-Starwood: Get 25% off purchased bonus points through 05/31.
20K points would cost $525 (2.625 cents per Starpoint/2.1 cents per airline mile).

Are these a good deal? They can be, especially if you’re close to an award. But for some redemptions they can make sense even if you’re not close to an award.

Of course it’s cheaper to get points by opening credit cards and manufacturing spend, but there can be deals for the lazy.

The key is to only purchase if you have a specific redemption in mind where it can make sense to pay for points.

Hilton:
Take the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem for example, probably the nicest hotel in the entire country. A 5 night stay from July 1-6 for example would run $750/night (plus 18% VAT for locals). However it’s just 64K points per night with a 5 night stay or 80K points per night without a 5 night stay.
When buying points for 0.5 cents each that’s just $320 per night on a 5 night stay or $400 per night without a 5 night stay.

Need the full 320K points for a 5 night stay? Just open 2 Hilton accounts in your name, purchase 160K points in each, and then merge the accounts via this link.

Hyatt:
The Park Hyatt Maldives charges a whopping $2383.76 after tax for a Park Villa on 01/01/16. The Park Hyatt Sydney charges $1,550 per night. Hyatt’s top category 7 hotels (like those and Park Hyatt hotels in cities like Milan, NYC, Paris, Tokyo, and Zurich) are 30K points per night with no capacity controls. When buying points for 1.71 cents each, rooms at the top-tier Hyatt hotels are just $513 per night.

A category 6 Hyatt hotel like the Grand Hyatt Kauai or Andaz 5th Avenue go for 25K points or 12.5K points+$125 per night.

A category 1 Hyatt is just 5K points even though a paid room can cost $150.

Need more than 77K points? Just buy them from multiple accounts and use this form to transfer points all into one account.

Starwood:
A 5 night stay at the S. Regis Bal Harbour from 01/24-01/29 is $1,342/night with tax. However it’s just 24K points per night with a 5 night stay or 30K points per night without a 5 night stay. When buying points for 2.625 cents each that’s $630 per night on a 5 night stay or $787 per night without a 5 night stay.

The Le Meridien Chiang Mai, Thailand is a great modern hotel in an awesome city.  While paid rates can reach $200/night with tax, it only costs 3K Starpoints for weekend nights and 4K points for weekday nights.  That’s just $78-$105 when buying points for 2.626 cents each.

JAL charges 150K miles to fly Emirates First Class round-trip from JFK to the Maldives on an A380 with walled suites and a shower onboard. You can even stopover for free in cities like Milan or Dubai. Every 20K Starpoints transfers into 25K miles on dozens of airlines such as JAL, American, Alaska, and more.  120K Starpoints transfers into 150K JAL miles at a cost of $3,150. Sure beats paying $30,000 for that suite.

Need more than 20K points? Just buy them from multiple accounts located at the same address and you can transfer points freely between the accounts via this link.

IHG Pointbreaks Now Bookable For Stays Through July, Hotel Rooms For Just $35/Night

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

IHG Booking Linky

IHG PointBreaks Linky

-The current list is valid for stays through 07/31.
-Hotels can sell out of discounted rooms quickly and only a limited amount of rooms is available per night.

You can book up to 2 reservations per hotel. There’s no limit to how long each of the stays can be.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 IHG points. If you already have 5,000 IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet IHG sells 5,000 points for $67.50. If those points don’t post instantly you can call IHG to get a points loan based on your purchase confirmation number in order to quickly grab a room. Alternatively you can transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to IHG, though transfers are not instant. It’s a terrible use of Ultimate Rewards points (as they’re were more than twice that to brokers or when transferred to other airlines, hotels, or Amtrak), but it allows you to start buying points for 0.7 cents each.

You can also get 70K points for signing up for their credit card by 05/31.  That’s not as strong as bonuses from cards with more valuable point currencies, though it does come with an annual certificate good for a free stay in any IHG hotel. Those are best utilized at Intercontinental hotels where a night can set you back 50K points or $800/night in places like Bora Bora. The card is free for the first year and then $49/year. To signup you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

 

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy additional points for 0.7 cents each. You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

All you need to do is search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70 like the one below. The room is normally 15,000 points but with IHG points and cash option you can buy 10,000 points for $70 when making a reservation. Just select the 5,000 points+$70 option to complete this purchase.

The $70 that you pay is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will actually get back 15,000 points in your account. Effectively you are buying 10,000 IHG points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

ihg2

Be sure to click on the rules during the checkout process to make sure that the room is fully refundable (almost all are):

ihg4

In other words the cost per each 5,000 point PointBreaks stay is just $35 once you already have 5,000 initial points in your account.

Sample hotels for 5,000 points ($35) per night through 07/31:
-Holiday Inn Carlsbad, CA
-Holiday Inn Mount Prospect – Chicago, IL
-Crowne Plaza Indianapolis-Airport, IN
-Holiday Inn Express Boston North, MA
-Candlewood Suites Kansas City Airport, MO
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Geneva Finger Lakes, NY
-Hotel Indigo Cleveland-Beachwood, OH
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Portland-Jantzen Beach, OR
-Candlewood Suites Washington DC-Fairfax, VA

-Crowne Plaza Panama
-Holiday Inn Express Madrid – Leganes, Spain
-InterContinental Nha Trang, Vietnam

Daily Getaway For 03/27 At 1pm: Hilton Points For Sale

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Daily Getaways Linky

With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick.  At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through April 22nd there is a new offering.

The best deals will sell out in seconds, so you need to be waiting on the page at 12:59pm and refreshing the page.  Be sure to have a Hilton number handy.

There are 3 Hilton packages that will be available to purchase at 1pm:

1. 100,000 points for $500

2. 150,000 points for $750

3. 250,000 points for $1,250

You can buy 1 of each package per Hilton account.  All packages effectively price points at 0.5 cents each.

There are some decent values to be had at some Hilton properties.

The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is easily the finest hotel you’ll find in Israel.  The kosher breakfast is included with all rooms and is the stuff that dreams are made of.  A room from June 30-July 5 would set you back $3,750 at $750 per night. You need a whopping 80K points per night, but thanks to 5th night free on awards 5 nights would set you back 320K points.  That’s a value of 1.17 cents per point.

Of course the hotel isn’t always that expensive, the rates range between $450-$800 per night depending on the season.

If you were to buy 80K points at 0.5 cents each that would make the effective cost per night $400.  If you buy 320K points at 0.5 cents each for 5 nights that would make the effective cost per night $320.

It’s worth noting that the David Citadel opened as the Hilton Jerusalem but within a few years they grew tired of the royalty payments due to Hilton and they left the chain.  Similar things have happened to others chains in Jerusalem such the Sheraton Plaza and the Hyatt, so don’t just hoard onto points for stays years into the future if your only goal is the Waldorf Jerusalem.

And while Hilton points have been heavily devalued recently, there’s nothing stopping them from devaluing their points further.

Will you be a buyer today? What hotel redemption are you gunning for? Sound off in the comments!

Daily Getaway For 03/24 At 1pm: Discounted IHG Points

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Daily Getaways Linky

With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick.  At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through April 22nd there is a new offering.

The best deals will sell out in seconds, so you need to be waiting on the page at 12:59pm and refreshing the page.  Be sure to have a IHG number handy.

There are a lot of IHG packages available, so I don’t expect this one to sell out immediately as they would when Hyatt sells points at a discount (though the Hyatt sale will occur on Pesach this year, so I won’t have any shot at it this time around).

There are 4 IHG packages that will be available to purchase at 1pm:

1. 15K points for $90 (0.6 cents per point)

2. 25K points for $150.30 (0.601 cpp)

3. 50K points for $293 (0.586 cpp)

4. 100K points for $565 (0.565 cpp)

IHG runs PointBreaks which allows you to book rooms at rotating hotels for just 5,000 points per night.   That’s just $28.25 at .565 cpp or $30 at .6 cpp.

There are also good values to be had at high-end properties.  Intercontinental hotels in Bora Bora, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and other major cities cap out at 50K points, which can be a fraction of their full paid rate.

2 New Starwood Options Come To South Beach

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Update: Starwood has changed The Royal Palm from a category 5 to a category 6.
————————————————————
Currently the only Starwood hotel in South Beach is the category 7 W Hotel.

The Royal Palm Miami-South Beach joins Starwood tomorrow as part of the SPG Luxury Collection.

While the lowest paid rate for tomorrow night is $559+tax=$657, it is just a category 5 property, so you can redeem just 12,000 Starpoints for the room. On a 5 night stay it would be just 9.6K Starpoints per night.

It’s located on 15th and Collins, just half a block from the Hyatt Centric South Beach that will be opening within the next few months.

Unlike the Hyatt, the Royal Palm is located on the ocean side of Collins Avenue.

The Aloft South Beach is accepting reservations beginning June 11th.

It too will be a category 5 property, however it will not be on the ocean side of Collins.  On June 11th the lowest rate for a room there is $309+tax=$349.

Always good to have more points accepting hotels in Miami Beach!

IHG Pointbreaks Now Valid Through May

Have A Hyatt Credit Card? Get 20% Back On All Point Redemptions Through July! Plus: A Unified Hyatt Award Chart With 20% Off Calculations

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Hyatt credit cardholders can register here to get 20% of their points back when they redeem them for stays through 07/31/15.

Unfortunately you can’t go out and apply for the Hyatt card now. In order to register you had to have already had the card as of 01/31/15.

-Receive 20% back on the Hyatt Gold Passport points you redeem for award stays, points + cash, suite upgrades, and dining and spa activities.
-Registration will remain open until 03/31/15.
-Redemptions must be made between 02/17-07/31 to get 20% back, so if you have a previous reservation you’ll want to cancel and rebook it assuming that you are outside of the cancellation window and there is still award space for your stay. Hyatt has clarified that you don’t need to rebook.
-Stays must be completed by 07/31, so if you are staying from the end of July and into August you’ll want to split up that award into 2 reservations.
-Points redeemed for Avis car rental certificates or points transferred to airline partners are not eligible for this promotion.
-Please allow 4-6 weeks after your points redemption has been completed for your bonus Hyatt Gold Passport points to be loaded into your account.

Here is the regular Hyatt award chart:

Hotel CategoryStandard Room AwardSuite Night AwardPoints+Cash Standard Room AwardCost of points saved with P+C Award
15K8K2.5K+$502 cents/point
28K13K4K+$551.38 cents/point

625K40K12.5K+$1501.2 cents/point

And here is the Hyatt award chart with 20% off award stays:

Hotel CategoryStandard Room AwardSuite Night AwardPoints+Cash Standard Room AwardCost of points saved with P+C Award

620K32K10K+$1501.5 cents/point
724K38.4K12K+$3002.5 cents/point

You can determine the category of every Hyatt hotel via this link.  Just toggle the category number to view other categories and expand the regions on the bottom to include hotels in the Asia/Pacific region or the Europe, Africa & Middle East region.

When booking a points+cash reservation I included a metric in the chart above that shows the rate that you’re effectively buying your points back at.

You’ll notice that points+cash stays are a worse value with the 20% off chart. That’s because you only get 20% of your points back, not the cash used.

The category 6 rate is normally the biggest points+cash bargain. You “buy” back or save 12.5K points per night for $150. Effectively you paid just 1.2 cents per point ($150/12,500) to save those 12.5K points per night. The category 1 and 7 points + cash deals are normally the worst as you are effectively paying 2 cents per point.
With 20% off the category 6 rate falls to 1.5 cents per point and the category 7 rate falls all the way to 2.5 cents per point.

Note that standard awards have no blackouts or capacity controls on standard rooms and suites. However points+cash reservations are capacity controlled. A nice benefit of points+cash rooms is that they are considered a paid rate, so they qualify for all promotions that apply to paid hotel stays and you can use a diamond suite upgrade certificate to confirm them into a suite.

Suite nights require a 3 night minimum stay and can only be booked over the phone.

Points+Cash nights can also only be booked over the phone.

HOT! Spend $250 At Rite Aid On Select Products And Get 2 Free Nights At Select Hyatt Hotels!

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Rite Aid is running a “Happy You Year” promotion through 01/24 with 5 levels of potential rewards.

Purchase these participating products in store or online at Riteaid.com and you’ll get a reward code (worth 50 credits) for every $50 that you spend. You need to provide your Wellness+ card number to get the reward codes.

Spend $250 total (it doesn’t have to be in shot) and you’ll get 5 reward codes. Every time you reach another $50 threshold a reward code will print on your receipt.  If you spend $100 in one transaction then 2 codes will print, if you spend $250 then 5 codes will print, etc.  Online orders also qualify and the amount you spend online will combine together with in-store purchases to reach the thresholds. There’s a limit of 5 codes per person.

With 5 reward codes for example you can choose from:
-2 night camping/cabin reservation
-7 night RCI time-share resort
-2 night Hyatt Premier Certificates

You can select 1 of the level 5 reward code prizes per household.

I don’t know much about the cabin or time-share offers, they may be great. But I do know about the Hyatt premier certificate level award that they are giving out. Hyatt used to sell Premier certificates to the public for $189 per night, so theoretically that’s a $378 value. Though it can be worth much more (or less) than that depending on the hotel you redeem at.

I wrote all about Hyatt Stay certificates on DDF several years ago before they stopped selling them to the public.

Now Rite Aid’s terms of actually claiming the free nights is incredibly awkward. You can find them here.
In short, you need to select your reward choice online by 02/24 which will provide you with a registration form.
You must send in that form with a copy of your provide photo ID by 03/03.
You’ll then be emailed an online booking form that must be completed by 03/22 where you must select where you want to stay.
The stay must be at least 4 weeks in advance but not more than 365 days in advance.

Now here’s the really odd part, they ask that you select 3 different Hyatt hotels and 3 different dates.

The only good reason that they would ask for that is because Hyatt stay certificates are capacity controlled.

Luckily there’s a trick to check if your desired dates are available.
First locate the hotel where you want to stay that will accept Premier certificates.

Say you want to stay in the Hyatt Place Secaucus, located just 6 miles from Times Square, from 06/07-06/09.
Just go to Hyatt.com and search for Secaucus but expand the special rates section and in the special offer code section type in: HSPRN2

hyatt6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then click through for the Hyatt Place Secaucus and you’ll see that they will accept Premier certificates that night:
hyatt5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The paid rate for each of those nights is $299+tax=$687.70.
Not a bad value for buying $250 worth of everyday stuff from Rite Aid!

If there is no availability for your dates you’ll get an error message like this:
hyatt7

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what will happen if you only submit the form with 1 desired hotel and set of dates? Good question. It would probably be fine if your dates do have availability but personally I’d just submit choices #2 and #3 as hotels that I know won’t have availability thanks to the code above 😀

Hint: The Hyatt Place Cleveland and the Hyatt Place Canton both seem to have terrible availability 😉

Post what items you’ll be buying online or in-store to hit the $250 if you decide to go for this!

What’s Your IHG Point Purchase Bonus?

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Update: This offer ends tomorrow!

—————————————————————————

Originally posted on 12/11:

IHG Point Purchase Linky

IHG normally sells points directly for 1.15 cents each. And you can transfer points from Chase, but that’s a criminal use of Chase points. Of course there’s a hack to buy their points at .7 cents each, though that hack requires that you have points to start with.

They currently have a promotion to get a bonus when you buy points.

There’s a DDF thread on the promotion and people are reporting 0%, 25%, 50%, 75, and a 100% bonus when buying points.

Login to your account via the point purchase link above to see what offer is on your account.

My account has a 100% bonus offer:

ihg1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In other words I can buy 60K points plus a 60K bonus for $690.  That’s just 0.575 cents per point for 120K points..

If you have a 75% bonus you would be able to get 105K points for $690 or 0.657 cents per point, also a good deal.

This promotion expires on 12/23.

IHG points never expire.

IHG runs PointBreaks which allows you to book rooms at rotating hotels for just 5,000 points per night.   That’s just $28.75 for a room if you can buy points at .575 cents each. Those hotels rotate every couple of months and a new list will be out very shortly.

There are also good values to be had at high-end properties.  The highest tier is 50K points.
-Intercontinental has a heavy presence in French Polynesia with properties on Tahiti and Moorea islands for just 40K points ($230 at .575).

-An overwater bungalow in Bora Bora at the Intercontinental Thalasso can go for as much as $1,000 with tax but costs just 50K points. That’s just $287.50 at .575 cents per point.

-Bargains can be had for high end Intercontinental hotels in NYC, Hong Kong, Paris, London, etc. thanks to the 50K redemption level.

-There are lots of IHG hotels in Israel including Ashkelon (10K), Dead Sea (30K), Eilat (30K), Haifa (30K), Jerusalem (20K), and Tel Aviv (30K).

So what’s your bonus? And will you be a buyer at that rate?

IHG Pointbreaks Now Valid Through February

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

IHG Booking Linky

IHG PointBreaks Linky

-The current list is valid for stays through 02/28.
-Hotels can sell out of discounted rooms quickly and only a limited amount of rooms is available per night..

You can book up to 2 reservations per hotel. There’s no limit to how long each of the stays can be.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 IHG points. If you already have 5,000 IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet IHG sells 5,000 points for $67.50. If those points don’t post instantly you can call IHG to get a points loan based on your purchase confirmation number in order to quickly grab a room. Alternatively you can transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to IHG, though transfers are not instant. It’s a terrible use of Ultimate Rewards points (as they’re were more than twice that to brokers or when transferred to other airlines, hotels, or Amtrak), but it allows you to start buying points for 0.7 cents each.

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy additional points for 0.7 cents each. You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

All you need to do is search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70 like the one below. The room is normally 15,000 points but with IHG points and cash option you can buy 10,000 points for $70 when making a reservation. Just select the 5,000 points+$70 option to complete this purchase.

The $70 that you pay is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will actually get back 15,000 points in your account. Effectively you are buying 10,000 IHG points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

ihg2

 

Be sure to click on the rules during the checkout process to make sure that the room is fully refundable (almost all are):

ihg4

In other words the cost per each 5,000 point PointBreaks stay is just $35 once you already have 5,000 initial points in your account.

Sample hotels for 5,000 points ($35) per night through 02/28:
-Candlewood Suites Tucson, AZ
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Colorado Springs, CO
-Holiday Inn Express Washington DC/BW Parkway, MD
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Detroit North, MI
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites S. Paul NE, MN
-Holiday Inn Express & Suites Carneys Point Turnpike Exit 1, NJ
-Crowne Plaza Albuquerque, NM

Buy IHG Points For .575 Cents Each

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Update: This offer ends today!
——————————————————-

Purchase IHG Points For .575 Cents Each

IHG normally sells points directly for 1.15 cents each. And you can transfer points from Chase, but that’s a criminal use of Chase points. Of course there’s a hack to buy their points at .7 cents each but with the current sale you can buy them directly for less than that without jumping through hoops. And that hack requires that you have points to start with.

You can get the lowest rate with this promotion by buying between 50K-60K points and your point purchase will be doubled.  So 50K points will actually become 100K points for $575.  Or 60K points will become 120K points for $690.

This promotion expires on 09/22.

IHG points never expire.

You can purchase 120K points per member per year, so you can get up to 240K points with this promotion in 2 transactions of 60K each.  You can also buy up to 120K points as a gift for the same member that already purchased, so you can get up to 480K points per member from this promotion in total.

IHG runs PointBreaks which allows you to book rooms at rotating hotels for just 5,000 points per night.   That’s just $28.75 for a room if you buy points at .575 cents each. Those hotels rotate every couple of months and a new list will be out very shortly.

There are also good values to be had at high-end properties.  The highest tier is 50K points.
-An overwater bungalow in Bora Bora can go for as much as $1,000 with tax but costs just 50K points. That’s just $287.50 at .575 cents per point.
-Intercontinental has a heavy presence in French Polynesia with properties on Tahiti and Moorea islands for just 40K points ($230 at .575).

-Bargains can be had for high end Intercontinental hotels in NYC, Hong Kong, Paris, London, etc. thanks to the 50K redemption level.

There are several IHG hotels in Israel:
Holiday Inn Ashkelon: 10K ($57.50 with this promo)
Crowne Plaza Jerusalem: 20K ($115)
Crowne Plaza Dead Sea: 30K ($172.50)
Crowne Plaza Eilat: 30K ($172.50)

HOT! Park Hyatt Washington DC Park Executive Suite For Just $199 Per Night!

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Update: DEAD!

———————————————————————–

Earn 2-2.14 points per dollar and get free insurance for trip cancellation, trip interruption, trip delay, lost luggage, delayed luggage, and travel accident insurance with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
———————————————————————–

Priceline: Park Hyatt Washington DC

The Park Executive suite normally goes for more than $400 per night. The Park Hyatt DC is one of the top hotels in the capital.

Park Executive Suite details:

“Sophisticated in style with a residential feel, the 940 square foot Park Executive Suite features a separate bedroom with king-sized bed, fitted with luxurious linens and a down duvet cover.

Spacious living area that seamlessly blends modern décor with touches of the American spirit, and offers a plush sofa, dining table for four, 32” flat screen HDTV’s, complimentary wireless Internet and authentic folk art, historical hardcover books and antique games.

The spa-inspired limestone bath features a soothing rain shower and deep soaking tub.

Our complimentary sedan service (upon availability) and an additional half bath add the final deluxe amenities to these very special accommodations.”

The best availability for $199 dates is from Thursday-Sunday (there are shuls within walking distance) though some weekdays have availability below.

If you find other dates dates or if dates below stop working please post a comment!

Sample valid dates:
10/30-11/02
11/20-11/23
11/24-11/27
11/25-11/27
11/25-11/28
11/27-11/30
12/04-12/07
12/11-12/14

Technically speaking you can save another 20% by filing a BRG claim. But you won’t get a response to that for a while, by which time this will likely be dead.  So I’d definitely recommend the Priceline route.

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Earn 2-2.14 points per dollar and get free insurance for trip cancellation, trip interruption, trip delay, lost luggage, delayed luggage, and travel accident insurance with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
———————————————————————–

Travelocity Linky

Travelocity has $100 off $300 of select hotels. Looking through the exclusion list (the full list can be found at the bottom of this post) just about every chain is excluded, but Hyatt is not. That makes for some great Hyatt bargains to be had as there is no minimum stay required.

You can book one night at a time (or more at lower priced hotels as needed) and save $100 each night at a luxury Hyatt hotel. Just call the hotel to connect the reservations so you won’t have to change rooms during your stay.

-You must book by 11:59pm PDT tonight.
-As long as the total after tax is $300 or more you can apply the coupon.
-You must complete the stay in 2014.

What’s Your IHG Into The Nights Offer?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

——————————————————–
IHG “Into The Nights” Promo Registration Linky

IHG.com

IHG’s current promo has different requirements for everyone, but it can be fairly lucrative.  Login via the link above to check out your offer. If you don’t have an IHG account yet you can make one now and still get an offer.

All offers must be completed by 12/31/14.

My offer is:
Complete 3 activities: Earn a free night or 25,000 points.
Complete all 5 activities: Earn another free night or another 25,000 points.

Activities:
-Download the IHG App and book a stay: Earn 500 points
-Stay 3 nights at any of IHG’s hotels: Earn 2,000 points
-Book 2 stays on ihg.com or IHG App: Earn 2,000 points
-Stay 2 Saturdays at any of our IHG hotel brands: Earn 4,000 points
-Stay at 2 Holiday Inn hotels: Earn 2,000 points

So by booking 1 Saturday night at 1 Holiday Inn and another Saturday-Monday stay at another Holiday Inn via the IHG app I can earn 2 free nights+10,500 points (on top of base earn rates) or 60,500 points (on top of base earn rates).
It looks like I can earn those 2 free nights+10,500 points for under $300 in Cleveland.

You need to select your choice of free nights or points by 01/31 or else you will get points by default. The free nights expire 12/31/15.  You can use them in any of the 4,700+ IHG hotels, from Bora Bora to the Maldives, from Hong Kong to Paris, from NYC to Tel Aviv.

It’s reminiscent of, but not nearly as lucrative as the good old days from 2009 or 2010, but you gotta take what you can get. Back then I made dozens of stays for my wife and myself at $60 a pop (less a 22% discount for buying GCs from Costco back then) which earned hundreds of thousands of United miles, hundreds of thousands of Hyatt points, and more free Hyatt nights than I knew what to do with, so we traveled the world to burn them off in $1,000/night hotels like Park Hyatts in Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, and Zurich and I even raffled off several of them to DD readers. In 2008 we had a monthlong honeymoon in Hawaii thanks to Hyatt faster free nights.

But enough of going down memory lane, what’s your IHG offer?

How Far Will The Chase Marriott 70K Offer Go For Hotels In Israel?

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Update: The 70K Chase Marriott bonus is schedule to end at some point tomorrow.
DDF member SamKey wrote a nice trip report from a points stay at the Ritz-Carlton Herzliya that you can read here.

———————————————————
Originally posted on 07/28:

Point hotels in Israel are hard to come by.

Not long ago Starwood had 13 properties that were all bargains with Starpoints. I stayed in many of them on a month-long trek across the holy land in August of 2007 spending just a couple thousand Starpoints per night to stay in Jerusalem, Haifa, Eilat, Tiberias, and the Dead Sea.  Now there’s just 1 left, the Sheraton Tel Aviv, and at 12K-16K points per night it’s not the bargain it once was.

It seems hotels don’t need to stay part of a loyalty program to fill up their rooms in Israel.  Hyatt had a Jerusalem hotel but now has nothing. Hilton has had several hotels in Jerusalem over the years that have come and gone. The David Citadel opened as the Hilton Jerusalem in 1998 but left Hilton in 2001.  It’s anyone’s guess as to how long the newly opened Waldorf Jerusalem will stay part of Hilton, but at 80K points per night it’s out of the budget of most folks.

Chase recently released a limited time offer on the Chase Marriott card for 70K bonus points for spending $2,000 in 3 months.  On top of that you’ll also get a free night at a category 1-4 hotel upon account approval.  You also get a free night at a category 1-5 hotel every year that you renew the card.

The $85 annual fee is waived for the first year.

The Marriott program is split into “categories” and “tiers.”

Marriott has 9 categories of hotels that range from 7,500 to 45,000 points per night or 6,000 to 40,000 points per night when they’re on PointSavers.

Marriott also has 5 tiers of Ritz Carlton hotels that range from 30,000 to 70,000 points per night or 20,000 to 60,000 points per night when they’re on PointSavers.

When you stay 4 nights you get the 5th night free.  You can browse hotels in each of those categories and tiers via the find button on this page. While there you can look at the additional free night you receive at signup besides for the bonus points at category 1-4 hotels.

You can also transfer points into miles here. The ratios aren’t great, but if you need some Southwest points for Companion pass status that can be worthwhile.

Marriott also offers miles+nights packages.

Israel has 2 Marriott hotels:
The Ritz-Carlton Herzliya is a luxury hotel that opened 7 months ago and has been getting rave reviews. It is a Ritz-Carlton tier 2 hotel which means that it’s 40,000 points per night or 160,000 points for a 5 night stay (32,000 points per night).

A standard room for a tourist from 08/10-08/15 is $2,750 or $550 per night.  Or you can use 160,000 points, a value of 1.72 cents per point.  The 70K signup bonus would be worth over $1,200 for a redemption at that value per point.

A standard room for non-tourists would run $3,245 for the 5 nights with VAT. Using points would yield a value of 2.03 cents per point.

Marriott allows free point transfers between spouses, so if 2 spouses both get a Marriott card and spend $2,000 on each they would have at least 144,000 points in one account and 2 free category 1-4 nights.  You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Marriott, but in most cases there are better uses for Ultimate Rewards points.  After all you can buy increments of 1,000 points for $12.50 and Ultimate Rewards are worth more than that.  I’d rather buy the additional 16,000 points needed in that scenario for a 5 night stay for $200 than use 16,000 Ultimate Rewards points.

The Renaissance Tel Aviv Hotel is a category 7 hotel that goes for 35,000 points per night or 140,000 points for a 5 night stay (28,000 points per night.)

A standard room for a tourist from 08/03-08/08 is $1,475 or $295 per night.  Or you can use 140,000 points, a value of 1.05 cents per point. The 70K signup bonus would be worth $735 for a redemption at that value per point.

A standard room for non-tourists would run $1,741 for the 5 nights with VAT. Using points would yield a value of 1.24 cents per point.

2 spouses each getting the Marriott card would have more than enough points for a 5 night stay at the Renaissance Tel Aviv and they would still have 2 more free nights at category 1-4 properties.
——————————————————————————-

Other Chase consumer cards you can simultaneously include the Chase British Airways (50K signup points, 1.25 Avios per dollar, and an annual companion award ticket if you spend $30K+ in a  year), Chase United Explorer (50K signup points plus another 5K points for adding a free additional user, and it gives free luggage, free primary car rental insurance including in the US, expanded saver and standard award ticket availability, priority boarding, and more), the Chase Sapphire Preferred (40K signup points plus another 5K points for adding a free additional user, no fee the first year, plus 2.14 points per dollar on travel and dining with no Foreign Exchange fees), the Chase Freedom (which has no annual fee, gives 5 points per dollar in rotating categories), .

New IHG PointBreaks List Is Out

Monday, July 28th, 2014

IHG PointBreaks Linky

The current list is valid for stays through 09/30. Hotels can sell out of discounted rooms quickly.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 IHG points. If you already have 5,000 IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet IHG sells 5,000 points for $67.50, though that won’t post instantly. You can also transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to IHG.  Terrible use of Ultimate Rewards points, but it allows you to start buying points for 0.7 cents each.

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy additional points for 0.7 cents each.  You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

All you need to do is search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70 like the one below. The room is normally 15,000 points but with IHG points and cash option you can buy 10,000 points for $70 when making a reservation.  Just select the 5,000 points+$70 option to complete this purchase.

The $70 that you pay is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will actually get back 15,000 points in your account.  Effectively you are buying 10,000 IHG points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

ihg2

 

Be sure to click on the rules during the checkout process to make sure that the room is fully refundable (almost all are):

ihg4

In other words the cost per each 5,000 point PointBreaks stay is just $35 once you already have 5,000 initial points in your account.

Sample hotels for 5,000 points ($35) per night through 09/30:
-Candlewood Suites Yuma, AZ
-Holiday Inn Express Chicago-Downers Grove, IL
