IHG Rewards Club has a new promotion for buying points between September 24 and October 18, 2013, and getting maximum of 50% bonus on purchased points.
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 60,000.
The price of a point purchased under this offer is $7.67 per 1000 points or 0.767 cents (less than a cent) each. You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
IHG Rewards Club recently had a targeted sale 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.
This is the usual bonus offer from IHG Rewards Club for buying points. They may have better offer at the end of the year.
Here are the terms and conditions of this bonus offer:
Offer available for purchases made between September 24 and 11:59 PM ET October 18, 2013 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 60,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 60,000 points per year. Please allow 24-48 hours for points to post to appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG® Rewards Club Terms and Conditions apply.
