Thanks to a nice little coupon floating around for use on Expedia.com, you can get a nice getaway for as low as $45. You can also use this for securing a very cheap flight, even if you're not using the hotel.
How it works is this:
When you have a nonrefundable flight + 3
(or more) consecutive nights at most IHG Hotels
(Holiday Inn, Candlewood Suites, Crowne Plaza, etc), the coupon code 200IHG
will discount the price of your package by $200.
Las Vegas is a popular destination for this coupon because of the availability of cheap flights from various cities. For example, from Los Angeles:
Tuesday September 8th LAX-LAS
Depart 8:00 PM, Arrive 9:11 PM
Friday September 11th LAS-LAX
Depart 7:05 PM, Arrive 8:19 PM
3 nights at the Candlewood Suites Las Vegas in a Studio Suite with Queen Bed (1 mile from the Strip).
Total = $235.
To use the coupon, the total before tax must be at least $200 so you need to find something to add that brings up your total to about $245 or higher. Dinner at the Hard Rock is $24, or for those people who are enviro-conscious, a carbon credit is $6.99. You will need to add two magazine subscriptions for $1 each to be able to apply the coupon if selecting the carbon credit.
