One Million Points Giveaway: 300,000 IHG Points

In the newsletter this week we're giving away 300,000 IHG rewards points. 

I'm going to break down this part of the giveaway to give you a better idea of what these points are worth and how you can redeem them for maximum value.

  • Number of points: 300,000
  • Cost to Kara and Nate: $3,000
  • Face-value: $2,400
  • Daily Drop Savvy User-value: $4,000+


Even if you didn’t win today, IHG points are actually quite easy to earn. 


The best way to rack up a huge balance is to open an IHG credit card. There is only one notable card out there, and it's the one below. In addition to earning tons of points on IHG stays, it comes with a VERY valuable benefit: the ability to book every 4th night free. That means when you're using points, you can book four nights at any IHG hotel but only pay for 3. If you account for the free night certificate and massive welcome bonus that also come with the card, this card is a MUST for any IHG fan.

4. IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card

Annual Fee: $99

Earn 140,000 IHG Rewards points and a Free Night Certificate after spending $3,000 within the first 3 months of account opening.

Ways to redeem IHG points for maximum value:

IHG has such a huge range of properties, but only two luxury brands: Intercontinental hotels and Kimpton hotels. These are definitely the highest-quality brands you can book with IHG points, but you could also choose to book a ton of nights at any Holiday Inn as well. Here are a few examples:


 You could book a whopping 50 (yes FIFTY) nights at this property in Bali:


Alternatively, you could book a luxurious 8-night stay in one of the nicest hotels in Eastern Europe:


Or, if you wanted to stay right here in the U.S. you could book ten nights at a beautiful Kimpton property in Miami:


At the end of the day, you shouldn't have a problem finding a great use for these points no matter where in the world you want to travel.
