IHG One Rewards launched another buy points flash sale at a 100% bonus early this month that ends tomorrow (July 15, 2022).
IHG frequently sells its points (the maximum bonus is 100%), and members can now buy up to 150,000 (sometimes 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:
A point at the 100% bonus costs 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 considerably lower the stays’ price.
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 bonus level other than 100% (or 50% off), at which IHG sells its points frequently.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
This Offer is available to IHG One Rewards members for qualifying purchases of IHG One Rewards points made during the period from 12:00 AM ET on 5 July 2022 up until 11:59 PM ET on 15 July 2022 (“Offer Period”). Under this Offer, members are eligible to receive a bonus of 100% of the points purchased when they meet a minimum points purchase threshold on a per transaction basis. (For additional details concerning the required purchase threshold, please click through to access the landing page for the Offer.) For example, if a member purchases 50,000 points during the Offer Period, the member would receive an additional 50,000 points as the 100% bonus, for a total of 100,000 points. The number of points a member may purchase, gift or receive as a gift during the Offer Period is subject to promotional period limits. For this Offer, members may purchase up to a maximum of 250,000 points during the Offer Period, depending on how many points the member had already purchased during the same calendar year. By way of example, if a member is making purchases during 2022 and had not previously purchased any points in 2022, the member could purchase up to 250,000 points. If the member had previously purchased 100,000 points in 2022, then the member could only purchase up to a maximum of 150,000 points during the promotional period. Similar limits apply to gifting points and receiving points as a gift: members may gift up to a maximum of 250,000 points or receive as gifts from other members a combined maximum of up to 250,000 points, during the Offer Period, subject to reduction by the number of points that have been already gifted or received as a gift, in the same calendar year. Purchased points, as well as any bonus points awarded under this Offer, do not count towards IHG One Rewards Elite status. This is an exclusive, non-transferable offer for intended recipients only and may not be forwarded. Offer is subject to change and cannot be combined with any other offer. Price includes all applicable fees. Purchased Points are not refundable and are applicable for all rewards available in the IHG One Rewards programme. Please allow up to 72 hours for points to post and appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG One Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions apply.
