In less than 6 months time, IHG Rewards Club is back with its 100% bonus points promotion where members can buy points at a 100% bonus. The sale is running for 3 days and will end on February 17, 2017.
Points are priced at USD 13.5 for every 1000 IHG Rewards Club points (plus 1000 bonus), bringing down the purchase value per point to 0.675 cents each. Points can be purchased in multiples of 1,000, though the 100% bonus will only kick in on purchase of a minimum 5,000 points. You can buy maximum of 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points every year. Also you can either buy the points for yourself or receive it as a gift from another IHG Rewards Club members. Do keep in mind that it will take up to 2 days for the points credit to reflect in your account.
IHG does have some very nice properties in their portfolio and there are hotels where you could gain real value from redemptions. For example :
Intercontinental Times Square, New York for 60,000 points a night. The value on redemption under this promotion works out to be USD 345, where prices can go all the way up to USD 500 plus in the holiday season.
Hotel Indigo: Seminyak Beach, Bali. Priced at USD 300 a night, just for 30,000 points this is a great redemption choice as the value of points under this offer drive costs all the way down to USD 187.5 a night. That’s a straight USD 100 saving!
Also keep in mind that IHG has also released its new list of hotels under PointsBreak where you can book any of the listed hotels for just 5,000 points all through April 30,2017. A good Indian hotel to consider is the Holiday Inn in Amritsar.
In this round there are 2 Intercontinental hotels participating and if you buy points to book any PointsBreak property you have a real leverage.
This is the best offer you can get on IHG Point Purchase and we have purchased points in this round of sale. It’s totally worth looking at the IHG properties around there and see if it would like to stash some points for use.
