Conclusion

IHG Rewards Club tends to offer 100% purchase bonus once or twice a year that is open for all. You can also “purchase” points using the Points + Cash method.

My family member’s account was targeted 50% bonus while mine was 100%. I have 700K+ points sitting in my account, so I am not buying any at this time.

Not sure why IHG Rewards Club didn’t have this sale prior to releasing the latest round of PointBreaks?

    When does it make sense to buy points? For me, never. I see “regular points” as a nice perk but doing some math (and I was just targeted 50%) 90.000 points would cost me $690 – two nights at let’s say Intercontinental Marina Dubai where I often stay are in fact 90.000 points. Two paid nights here would cost me $348 dollars, including taxes. Even if I had been targeted 100% at the same price I couldn’t even have 3 award nights and booking 4 paid nights would cost me $696 on which I would earn points and 100% spire bonus.

    It only makes sense if you stay at properties in super expensive markets like NYC, London, Tokyo where – if you you are lucky to find an award room, you would pay about 50k points as opposed to one paid night going from $400 to $900

    • It makes sense if you stay at one of the most expensive InterContinental hotels or during high demand times when the rates are up. Also makes sense for PBs.

    Not a buyer at the 50% they are offering me. But, to answer “why buy” there is one reason that I often buy points or miles when they are just fair price (e.g. close to the commonly valued rate) and not “a deal.” For me, if I don’t have miles/points burning a hole in my pocket I will literally never travel. I will always feel compelled to work. But, if I have 300,000 points somewhere that will be de-valued any day now, I’m finally going on a trip! I am one of the (many) people who are inspired to book a trip as soon as they announce a coming de-valuation. So, it’s like the people who intentionally have too much tax withheld because they like the refund. (FWIW, I don’t do that.) But, we are using an external force to change our personal behavior, b/c we lack the will power to do it ourselves.

    I don’t see the big advantage here.. my husband was targeted for 100%. So I looked up a local Holiday Inn at 5kpts plus $70 to meet the 15k required for free night. When I purchase 5k and get 5k more it charges me $67.50, Not a Big savings.

    did they change the max back to 60K annually? I thought it was 120K last year.
