IHG Rewards has launched another buy points Flash Sale at a 100% bonus for purchases made through November 8, 2021.
IHG frequently sells its points (the maximum bonus is 100%), and members can now buy up to 150,000 (usually with an increased limit of 250,000) every calendar year before any targeted offers.
You can check your personalized IHG Rewards buy points offer here.
Price at 100% bonus:
The cost of a point at the 100% bonus is 0.5 cents each.
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.
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’s awards are all over the map now that they are primarily based on the cash price for the night. However, there are some fluctuations, and you can occasionally save by buying points over paying the cash price.
It doesn’t make much sense to buy at any other bonus level than 100% (or 50% off), at which IHG sells its points frequently.
