Buy miles with Etihad Guest, American Airline pays travel agents commissions again, IHG 50% off reward nights promotion with great availability

– you can now buy Etihad Guest Miles – a great way to stock up on extra miles if you are close to your redemption

The store is run by points.com – so all the usual disclaimers apply.

– Amazing times – American Airlines is paying $2 per ‘segment’ as a travel agent commissions if they use their own system

– IHG has launched a 50% off reward night promotion for many hotels in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean for the slower summer season

Book from August 6th through August 12th and receive 50% off Reward Nights at participating resort properties in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean. Valid for stays between August 7th – October 27th, 2017. Enjoy the benefits of IHG® Rewards Club.

About 3 dozen hotels are included – many of them higher end properties.

I found availability at the Intercontinental Cancun for 15,000 IHG points.

The Intercontinental Cartagena can be had for 15,000 points as well.

If you have a trip planned to teh region I’d check to re-book hotels – these point amounts are not PointBreaks but have a much better range of properties included.
