Go ahead and overpack. IHG, operator of brands including InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo says it will reimburse you up to $50 for your airline checked baggage fee.

The "Check It Free" promotion is valid for stays (by U.S. residents only) from Sept. 1 to Dec. 30, at any of IHG's 4,500 hotels worldwide.

The hotel company says airline baggage fees are a top consumer complaint and "in these tough economic times, IHG is thanking travelers by reimbursing them" for their checked bags.

The offer applies to weekend stays of two consecutive nights, either Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday. And guests are required to use a Visa card to pay for their stay.

Travelers also need to show a receipt for their baggage fee with dates corresponding to the hotel stay. The offer is one per room, per stay, but you can get the rebate every time you visit a hotel within the promotional period.

The reimbursement comes in the form of a Visa Prepaid Card you can use to purchase anything you want.
