Points are priced at USD 13.5 for every 1,000 IHG Rewards Club points, in this case, making it 2000 points. Points can be purchased in multiples of 1,000 and the 100% bonus will kick in on a minimum purchase of 5,000 points, bringing down the price per point to 0.675 cents each with the bonus. You can buy a maximum of 60,000 IHG Rewards Club points every year. You can either buy the points yourself or receive it as a gift. It will take up to 2 days for the points credit to reflect in your account.
IHG does have some aspirational properties in their portfolio that make for some great redemption choice like the Intercontinental Bora Bora. Of course, if you do spend your points on any of the participating hotels available at 5,000 points per night in the PointBreaks then you have real deals in the purchase.
Personally, I will only purchase points if I have a specific property in mind for redemption, however, this is perhaps the best offer you can get on IHG point purchase.
What’s been your best IHG redemption so far? As for Ajay and I, it was a week of bliss at the Intercontinental in Bora Bora.
