Note that you must have your earning preference set to Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles instead of IHG Rewards points.
The rate display for InterContinental Singapore:
Three night weekend night stay at InterContinental Singapore using Singapore Airlines bonus miles rate, lowest rate available, and using points:
The price using the 500 bonus miles rate plan is $1,024 (USD).
The lowest available price for the weekend stay is $730 (USD).
And using the points
Using the IHG Rewards points, the weekend stay would set you back 137,000 points ($730/137,000 = 0.53 cents each).
You are essentially paying $294 to earn 500 Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles. How could this make any sense under any circumstance?
It is precisely the case with all the bonus miles and most bonus points plans that IHG Rewards offers. Their goal is not to benefit you but to put more cash into the coffers of hotels and IHG.
The only difference is that IHG sweetens bonus points plans by making the extra points elite qualifying, so those can make sense under specific circumstances, such as qualifying for Spire Elite.
