You can check your IHG Rewards Club buy points offer here.
Price at the 80% bonus:
Seems that the lower purchase price has is still in place (1 cent per point). The price was higher during the first sale of this year. The price at the 80% bonus is 0.56 cents per point.
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.
The new PointBreaks hotels should be out sometime next week and now could be good time to stock up on points if you need some.
There are several opportunities to purchase points at 100% bonus throughout the year if your targeted offer is lower than that this time around.
