What is a good conversation value for IHG / holiday inn points ? Is “13k points for $100 room rate “ a good deal ?

That sounds like a fair deal. YOu can sometimes get much better deals though.

Sometimes they'll run special offers where you can get closer to 20k points for that. Nerdwallet places the value of IHG points at 0.8 cents each, so 13k points for $100 is a near-even trade using that measure. Anything more than 13k for that price would be a deal.

Hmm. Not bad. How's the room though?
