Price at the 100% bonus:
The price at the 100% bonus is 0.5 cents each when the maximum number is purchased. My purchase limit was raised to 150,000 (before bonus).
IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks
IHG Rewards Club launched last in October latest PointBreaks starting at just 5,000 points per night valid for stays through January 31, 2020.
IHG Rewards Club Master Property List:
We have compiled an IHG Rewards Club Master Property-list as of April 2019. You can find all IHG hotels with their point requirements.
Here’s a list of all IHG hotels at just 10,000 points per night!
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 5,000 to 15,000 points per night, or when the paid rates are through the roof due to some event in the city.
IHG Rewards Club sells its points monthly at variable discounts that always max at 100%. They have raised the purchase limit for up to 250,000 points from 100,000 to some.
