Thanks so much for the extra magic. I found a rate in NY that is going to save me about $250 over the length of my stay compared to the hotel I was looking at. In the end it will be more than that as the Holiday Inn Express has the breakfast bar and the other hotel that I was going to book at did not have a breakfast. So, breakfast for three people for four days will be quite the additional savings. Worth way more than any IHG rewards that I might get.
$250 is quite a nice reward! That is great!

I can tell you this, you've saved me a LOT of money. We always check this rate to compare with whatever else we qualify for (generally, AARP, AAA, Priority Club, and gov't). MOST of the time, this rate is better than the others. We'll be using it again in Ohio in October for a horse show. Sure helps a bunch!

What a wonderful gift.

Just wanted to throw another code out there for all Carlson resorts(Radisson, Country INN and Suites ect...) CARLSONF in the promo section. It does say you need an employee name but I have never ever been asked and have used it many, many times.

Just Aruba from what I recall, but a lot of the resorts have all-inclusive packages that you can purchase. I know that a colleague goes to the Aruba location once a year, and so it must be an enjoyable place.

Was asked for a "white card" when using this

Just wanted to give a heads up that when I used this at the Holiday Inn Express Dublin Airport on July 13th, they told me that I should have been given a white card to present rather than the voucher. I told them that the voucher was what "my friend" (Thanks, Shelby!) had told me to take and that I didn't have any way of getting the white card to them at that moment. The clerk said they would leave a message for the manager and that he would call me if the voucher wouldn't work. I didn't hear from them & my receipt at checkout showed the friends & family rate (which was about 1/2 of the regular rate).

Hopefully this was just because I was using the discount overseas & not a change in the policy.

Again, thank you for sharing this Shelby!

Holiday Inn Hadley/Amherst Mass was soo nice! our room was large, housekeeping and the front desk were nice.. the breakfast buffet was awesome and always stocked.. It was across the street from Target, Dick's Sporting, Walmart, Applebee's, KFC, Mcdonalds, Wendy's, Old Navy and a few gas stations.. plus UMAss was just about 6 mins away by car - very easy to get tooo - well least the athletic fields where we needed to be.. I will post pics soon as i get them uploaded.. I was not asked for the voucher but had it all set just incase.. Thank you Shelby!!!

I suspect the desk clerk was confused. The manager probably explained.

It sounds like the desk clerk thought you were an employee and not a friend. We have white cards that we present. In that case, you should have gotten a much lower rate. It must not be as popular outside of the U.S.

Glad you all were able to get the special rates! One of these days I need to travel someplace really interesting to report back! For being in the travel industry, I don't travel so much.
