Deal of the Week: A Hotel that Pays You to Stay

Stk135582rkeHotels offer all sorts of ‘packages’ and other incentives to get heads in beds (as they say in the industry). This is the first we’ve heard of that actually offers cold, hard cash!

InterContinental Hotels Group would like to fund your fun with ‘Vacation Pay.’

Between May 16th and August 31st 2011, any traveler staying two consecutive weekend nights (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) at any of IHG’s 4,400 hotels, will receive a $75 prepaid card to spend however they’d like!

Not that you need it but IHG suggests ideas on how you can use your $75 reward:

  • Fill up a tank of gas for the family road trip
  • Download 60 songs for a summer playlist
  • Keep your feet fashionable with 12 new pairs of flip flops for each week of the summer
  • Pay for your checked baggage fees
  • Expand your mind with the top 10 beach reads

Fine print: Offer is valid for U.S. residents only and redeemable for a maximum reward of $300 back. For more information and to book accommodations, visit
