IHG Rewards Club has a new targeted buy points promotion for up to 75% bonus between now and January 31, 2014.
The maximum number of points that you can buy under this offer is the yearly maximum of 60,000 points (you can be gifted another 60K ) and you will get another 45,000 bonus for total of 105,00 points. You can access this offer and check your eligibility on IHG’s website here.
The price of the 105K IHG Rewards Club points would be $690. The price of a point under this offer is 0.66 cents each or $0.00657.
Does it make sense to buy?
If you can use these for Point Breaks or Social Flash Sale stays or if you have stays coming up at the most expensive hotels that are 50K points per night, the answer is likely yes.
IHG Rewards Club sometimes has these sales at 100% purchase bonus (they did twice in 2013), but 75% purchase bonus is not bad if you use your points wisely.
Remember that you can always buy IHG Rewards Club points at 0.7 cents each by doing Points & Money reservations and later canceling them.
