    IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) All-Inclusive Resorts

    If you have one of the following eligible Chase IHG credits cards, you will receive 4th Night Free on points stays of 4 consecutive nights or more. 
    But that's not all, if you have the discontinued old IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card ($49 annual fee), you also receive additional 10% rebate on points stays.

    IHG credit card member also receives One Anniversary Free Night that is capped at 40,000 IHG points properties. IHG now allows the anniversary free night certificate to be used at 40,000+ points properties thanks to the dynamic award pricing. This means that when the following all-inclusive resorts require just 40,000 points or less per night, you can use your IHG anniversary free night to book. 

    Furthermore, from time to time IHG has a promotion 50% off reward night in Mexico, Latin America & Caribbean that allows you to use only half of regular required points per night. So be on the lookout for that promotion or subscribe to our blog posts below and we'll let you know when that promotion returns.
