IHG Rewards Club has a new promotion for buying points between October 1-31, 2014, and getting maximum of 60% bonus on purchased points.
The number of bonus points that you earn is dependent on the number of purchased points per the table below. 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.
IHG Rewards Club just had their 100% bonus for points points, so I doubt that it would be returning anytime soon. 60% bonus is the usual maximum that they have during these sales.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Offer available for purchases made between 12:00 AM ET October 1 and 11:59 PM ET October 31, 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.
