Just got my answer - there is a post on my Facebook page from Priority Club.

I intend to buy the 10K points for $67 in order to seed future point purchases (since I have 0 points in my account at the moment)

EDIT: Ah they posted the code -- 9D347. Please only use it after I buy my points
Seems the codes are different for everyone. I got a different code posted on my FB page.

9D347 is the code, I follow most of the IHG brands and each has the same code listed.

Strange -- they just posted it as a comment:

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts ‎Matthew Nyers / We updated the time, it's noon indeed
Kalil Daoud / Many thanks for noticing!
Nina Westsiderider Hodge / The link should be sufficient but just in case, here is the code : 9D347
Paul Rodi / Head over the website through the link, choose your favourite package, and follow the instructions on the page - we've been told the process is pretty straightforward. Should you need any help please feel free to comment here!

I am not buying IHG points. I follow them normally and only wanted to see how the code would appear for future deals.

I assume that the main page will change to a purchase link and it will have a box to input the presale code, like when buying concert tickets.

https://dailygetaways.ustravel.org/Default.aspx

*Edit* box appeared at 12 and you can purchase after inputting code. New screen appears, so maybe turn off popup blocker.
It seems to give you 6 minutes to complete purchase. I am not buying so maybe someone else can add info on other screens

I needed to buy because I had less than 5,000 points .

Experiences: A link showed up for the code. I had Chrome, IE, and Firefox all ready to make sure one went through. Entered in code in Chrome first, clicked buy one. IE second (about 3 seconds later) had the same experience. Firefox was last to have code entered and all packages were in carts by then. It took about 1 minute of loading before you arrived at the 5 minute enter your info screen. Also, note that you needed to include your priority club number.

So, it took less than 30 seconds for all pre-orders of the 10,000 point package to be reserved.

Is it not wrong to show a picture of the IC Times Square next to the IC offer, when that is a 50k property?

I had a different code as well - but then it changed to the 347 code sometime after. I got the two offers I was after :-)

because pre-sale has so limited quantity, you should be able to buy at the begining of the normal sale @1 pm est

My code was 9D347 and it worked fine.

I bought the 25k package. Interestingly, my confirm e-mail says I'll get 40k points. I'm sure it's just a glitch, but that would be a nice bonus.
