Every Tuesday, we’ll feature the best travel bargain we’ve seen all week right here, on our blog. Be the first to find out which deals make the cut by subscribing to our blog (top right) or signing up for our weekly deals newsletter.
The Deal: Stay at any InterContinental Hotels Group property this summer and receive a free $75 prepaid gift card. To qualify, you must book a stay of two consecutive weekend nights or longer (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) from May 16 through August 31. The sheer variety of hotels on offer here is jaw-dropping. This deal is valid at more than 4,400 Holiday Inn, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, and Candlewood Suites properties around the world.
The Catch: This is a rebate promotion, so if you don’t bother to keep your receipt and mail a form after your vacation, you’ll miss out. Travelers must mail a rebate form plus their hotel receipt by September 30 to receive their prepaid card, which will arrive in the mail six to eight weeks later.
There’s one more thing. You’ll have to hold your horses for a few hours, as the rebate won’t be available online until Wednesday, May 11.
The Competition: BedandBreakfast.com is running a summer B&B promotion, offering $25 discounts at almost 2,000 B&B’s around the world. Of course, $25 is no $75. But BedandBreakfast.com’s wide range of eligible properties, which numbers in the thousands, isn’t something to sneeze at.
