IHG Rewards Club has launched back in July targeted buy points offer that ends today (September 12, 2017).
IHG Rewards Club may be offering up to 100% bonus on purchased points and the actual bonus offered is account dependent. You can purchase up to 60,000 points every calendar year (before any possible promotion).
You can check your IHG Rewards Club buy points offer here.
The price of a point under the 80% bonus when 60,000 points is purchased:
The price of a point purchased at the 80% bonus is 0.639 cents each.
Does it make sense to purchase points?
Purchasing points merely because they are on sale doesn’t make sense. If you have a good use for them, buying can lower the price of the stays considerably.
Usually using points make sense at the most expensive properties, during PointBreaks when some hotels are just 5,000 points per night, or when the paid rates are through the roof due to some event in the city.
IHG Rewards Club sells points throughout the year with variable bonus amounts that max at 100%. if your bonus is not 100% and you don’t need points right now, it probably make sense to wait for a better offer to surface.
