IHG Rewards Club has launched targeted offers to buy points through October 11, 2020.
IHG frequently sells its points (the maximum bonus is 100%), and members can now buy up to 150,000 every calendar year before any targeted offers.

Price at the 75% bonus:
The price at the 75% bonus is 0.56 cents each when the maximum number is purchased.
IHG has sent out emails to their new approach to award night pricing:
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 or when the paid rates are through the roof due to some event in the city.
IHG recently moved to variably priced awards, and there have been some excellent deals lately by using points, although some of the best ones have already been “corrected.”
IHG awards are now more sensible once they introduced the dynamically priced awards based on the paid price and demand.
It doesn’t make much sense to buy at any other bonus level than 100%, at which IHG frequently sells its points.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
