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.
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.
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.
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…..
