IHG One Rewards has launched another buy points flash sale at a 100% bonus valid for purchases made through October 21, 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.
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 significantly 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 October 10, 2022 through 11:59 PM ET October 21, 2022 (“Offer Period”). In order to qualify for this 100% bonus points Offer, a member must make a minimum purchase of 30,000 points per transaction. For example, if a member purchases 29,000 points during the Offer Period, they would not qualify for the 100% bonus. In contrast, if the 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 annual limits under the IHG One Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions, which are available on www.ihg.com. Members may purchase a maximum of up to 150,000 points during a calendar year, so the number of points a member can purchase during the Offer Period will depend on how many points the member had already purchased during the same calendar year. For example, if a member had previously purchased 50,000 points in 2022, then the member could only purchase up to a maximum of 100,000 points during the Offer Period and would be eligible to receive the applicable percentage of additional bonus points based only on the number of points purchased during the Offer Period. Similar limits apply to gifting points and receiving points as a gift: A member may gift points to other members, up to a total of 150,000 points during a calendar year for all gifted points combined, and a member may also only receive up to a combined total of 150,000 points as gifts from other members during a 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.
