How To Get 2 Nights At The Holiday Inn For $37.50

Right now Intercontinenatl Hotel Group (IHG) is offering a $50 rebate on 2 consecutive week nights (Mon, Tuses, Wed, Thurs) through August 2, 2012. Alternatively, you can get a $75 rebate card on 2 consecutive weekend night stays (Fri, Sat, Sun) though September 3, 2012. This rebate can be earned at any of their properties including: InterContinental®, Crowne Plaza®, Hotel Indigo®, Holiday Inn®, Holiday Inn Express®, Express by Holiday Inn, and their vacation brands. Unfortunately Friends & Family rates don’t apply.

Is This A Good Deal?

That’s a great question. Well, first you should all register for the Priority Club FaceBook promotion where you get 1,000 bonus points for every stay through September 3, 2012 (up to a maximum of 20,000 points).

You can also get 15% cash back by booking your stay through Mr. Rebates.

Let’s not forget the points you will earn for your stay.

Let’s assume that you pay a rate of $75/night for two weekend nights. Therefore, you will be paying $150 (not including taxes). You will get 15% cash back through Mr. Rebates, which equates to $22.50. You will get 1,000 points from the FaceBook promotion, and 150 x 10 points/$ = 1,500 points earned for your stay. I value Priority Club points at about 0.6 cents/point, so 1,500 points is worth $9.00. So in total you get back:

Rebate: $75.00

Mr. Rebates: $22.50

FaceBook Promo: $6.00

Points Earned: $9.00

Total: $112.50

So in summary you just earned $112.50 after spending $150 for 2 nights at a Crowne Plaza or Holiday Inn. In other words you just got two hotel nights for only $37.50 ($18.75/night). Not a bad deal! Especially, if your alternative is $20/night for a hostel, the Motel 6, or a case of Miller High Life for the weird bird watchers who you will be couch surfing with that weekend.
