The price of 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points at 100% bonus is 120,000 points for $690 = 0.575 cents per point.
IHG Rewards Club tends to have points sales almost continuously. They usually run two 100% bonus purchase promotions open for all couple of times a year.
Buying IHG Rewards Club points only makes sense if you use them at the most expensive InterContinental hotels or if award inventory exists during high occupancy periods when the prices are throughout the roof. Also, if you tend to redeem for PointBreaks hotels, this means that you are paying less than $30 per night.
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
Offer available for purchases made between 12:00 AM ET 4 December 2015 12:00 AM ET and 11:59 PM 11 December 2015inclusive. This is an exclusive, non-transferable offer for intended recipient only and may not be forwarded. 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 bonus.
