This Weeks Deal Dispatch brings you an airline deal to South Africa (which is pretty rare) and the best hotel deal in the rewards world with nights for 5,000 at select IHG hotels (which happens every quarter)!
Flights: Delta is offering a great deal from San Francisco to Johannesburg, South Africa, for $902 round-trip. You can travel October, 26th to December 6th, 2015 or January to March 2016 – that’s the hight of summer in the Southern Hemisphere and a great time to go. Deals to South Africa are rare and flights often are twice as much, so be quick to check it out at TheFlightDeal! You’ll find more details on how to book it and how to get the most miles for it!
Hotels: It’s time for the quarterly PointBreaks promotion from IHG. They offer a number of their hotels for 5,000 points per night. Because you can buy those points for as little as $35, it’s the best deal in the hotel rewards business. For example, I’m looking at the Holiday Inn Helsinki, which runs $110/night during my visit – a saving of 70%! You can find out more about the IHG Rewards program and how to earn those points here. You can see the full list of hotels here and book them later today! You have to move quickly, as there is a limited number of rooms available at those point rates and good hotels book up quickly!
