IHG Rewards Club Buy Points 60% Bonus July 24 – August 18, 2014

10 Comments

IHG Rewards Club has a new promotion for buying points between July 24 and August 18, 2014, and getting maximum of 60% bonus on purchased points.

IHG Rewards Club Buy Points July August 2014 Campaign

When you purchase more than 26,000 points at a time, you get the price of $11.50 per 1000 points. The maximum number of points, excluding bonus points, that you can purchase in a calendar year is maxed at 120,000. You can also receive another 120,000 points as a gift.

You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.

IHG Rewards Club Buy Points July August 2014 Campaign Price

The price of a point purchased under this offer is $7.19 per 1000 points or 0.719 cents (less than a cent) each.

IHG Rewards Club sometimes has targeted sales where they offered points at 100% bonus. You can “purchase” points by doing Points & Money reservations (and then canceling them) at $70 per 10,000 points.

Conclusion

This is an ok offer to purchase IHG Rewards Club points. Unless you need some points NOW, I would wait for a 100% points purchase promo.

The timing of these points sales is always very interesting, as they tend to coincidence with the release of PointBreaks…..

Here are the terms and conditions of this bonus offer:

Offer available for purchases made between 6:00 PM ET July 24 and 11:59 PM ET August 18, 2014 inclusive. Bonus points will be awarded upon completion of the transaction. Bonus points will be awarded to the recipient of the points purchase. Offer is subject to change. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Only purchases made online are eligible for the bonus.

Price includes all applicable fees. Purchased Points are not refundable and are applicable toward all IHG® Rewards Club awards. Members may purchase a maximum of 120,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 120,000 points per calendar year. Please allow 24-48 hours for points to post and appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG® Rewards Club Terms and Conditions apply.

    I would not trust IHG Rewards Club to process correctly. After numerous emails and phone calls I still am missing 37,000 points from the Big Win Promotion which ended April 30/14. Terrible service.

    • This sale is handled by Points.com. If you are still missing points from the Big Win promos, you should complaint using BBB or Attorney General.

    Tried this but I only got the regular purchase rate and no bonus points showing as above. Used the link in the email I received. This could be a good deal combined with the 5K PointBreak awards coming up next week.

    • Weird. I tried this on 3 different account and all had the 60% bonus. If you received the email and bonus is not showing up, you should call Points.com customer service that handles these sales on IHG’s behalf.

        Concluded a chat with Points.com and followed up with a forward of the original email offer, receiving a confirmation response but nothing further. However, decided to check the link yesterday again and it was now activated for the bonus.

        Bought myself just over 40K points for U$299 and used them for 2x4nights on a PointsBreak later this month. Had originally booked this hotel in J’bug at Z1750 a night, or almost U$750 for each of the four nights. So quite a nice ROI!

        Suppose I could have bought the points slightly more cheaply by booking four Cash&Pts nights at U$70 per 10K (U$280), then cancelling those bookings and using the new points to replace my stay-earned ones.

    Hi John,
    Last week I followed the link to the 60% bonus points promo and purchased 25000 points. The 25000 were instantly added to my IHG account, but I’ve still have not received the extra 15000 bonus points. Help?
