IHG tends to run a bonus for booking Bonus Points Package-rates during their yearly Cyber Sale.
Now, IHG Rewards Club members can earn 50% more Bonus Points Package points on stays through March 31, 2021, if booked by December 31.
Remember that Bonus Points Package-points are elite qualifying under IHG Rewards Club.
There is no note about this 50% bonus on the Bonus Points Package-page, but it was featured on IHG’s Europe-sale.
Bonus Points Packages only makes sense if:
1. Someone else is paying for your stays (and you can earn more points for yourself by booking an expensive rate)
2. You want to retain or reach higher IHG Rewards Club tier.
Otherwise, it is usually much cheaper to buy points during the frequent sales or do Cash + Points redemptions (which really are point sales too but don’t affect the yearly points purchase limit).
