IHG Rewards Club has launched a new offer to buy points with a 40% discount through November 13, 2020.
IHG frequently sells its points (the maximum bonus is 100%), and members can now buy up to 250,000 every calendar year before any targeted offers.
You can check your personalized IHG Rewards Club buy points offer here.
Price at the 40% discount:
The price at the 40% discount is 0.6 cents each when the maximum number is purchased.
IHG has sent out emails about 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 makes sense at the most expensive properties, during or when the paid rates are through the roof due to some events.
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 cash price and demand.
It doesn’t make much sense to buy at any other bonus level than 100% (or 50% off), at which IHG frequently, at least used to, sells its points.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
