Today has seen IHG launch its 2022 “Cyber Sale” which will run through Friday next week (2 December) and which will see more offers added as the sale period progresses.

As things stand, there are four promotions that have gone live:

  • Advanced Saver – save up to 20%
  • Book Early & Save – save up to 20%
  • Book Early and Save (Europe) – save up to 25%
  • Download the app. Get 1,000 points

On Monday next week, IHG is promising to unlock a further three promotions:

  • Members-only mystery offer (which will have something to do with an “unlimited bonus points offer”)
  • Save more on Reward Nights (which sounds like IHG will be offering cheaper award bookings)
  • Big savings on travel items (which sounds like it will offer members the opportunity to get truly poor value from their points by using them to buy things from IHG’s shopping catalogue at a reduced rate).

As soon as these three promotions go live, full details will appear here on TFM.

Quick thoughts

Right now, I plan to sit back and do absolutely nothing with this promotion until I see what IHG’s deals look like next week and until I see what cash back Rakuten will offer on IHG bookings for Black Friday/Cyber Monday (cash back stands at just 3% at the time of writing but I expect Rakuten to boost that at some point in the next 7 days).

I see no reason to rush into any bookings just yet.

Overall, I can’t say that the opportunity to save 20% – 25% off the Best Flexible Rate is looking enticing (because it isn’t) but I’m interested to see what next week’s “Save more on Reward nights” promotion looks like because in conjunction with the current points sale, it may open up some good redemption opportunities at some of IHG’s higher-end properties.

Bottom line

IHG has started to reveal its promotions for this year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday period, but as things stand, there isn’t much to get excited about. Next week, however, things may be different so make sure you check back on Monday to see if IHG’s newest deals have made life a little more interesting.
