Need More IHG Points?

You can get IHG Rewards points by:

And for a limited time, you can buy them directly from IHG for ~0.72 cents per point!

Usually, transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to IHG Rewards is NOT the best value because you can usually get IHG hotel points cheaper.  But it certainly could make sense for hotels on the PointsBreak list.  

If you’re comfortable with using the cash and points trick, you can buy IHG Rewards points and then get a statement credit of 1 cent per Chase Ultimate Rewards point.  This is a better value than redeeming Chase Ultimate Rewards points directly for IHG Rewards points.

Don’t Wait to Book!

Don’t count on the IHG PointBreaks hotels being available through September 30, 2014, because hotels may sell out and can be removed from the list at any time.

It doesn’t hurt to make a booking using points, because you can usually cancel them without a penalty (but read the cancellation policy before booking!).

Bottom Line

The new IHG PointBreaks list was just released.  All hotels on this list can booked for just 5,000 IHG points through September 30, 2014.  This is a great deal if you can find a hotel that meets your needs.

If you find a hotel you like, don’t hesitate to book it!  Because the best hotels on the list will be gone fast!

  1. That Las Vegas is in new Mexico. Ha ha not quite as good of a deal

  2. sorry to report this, but you can take OFF the Staybridge Savannah Georgia location from the list Serious problems and likely FRAUD there. Not for one second have they had ANY availability for reward nights, since even before this promo went “live.” (if you check availability for any night over the next two months, you’ll get not one day available — indeed, NOTHING will show up as available for reward nights into next year)

    If you get a front desk person claiming that people were reserving reward nights when the list was announced last Friday (but before 5k rate was in effect), he’s being something other than honest.

    Formal IHG inquiry in process. (but for the moment, scratch this one from the list)

  3. Daraius, out of curiosity, where does it actually state that one receives a 60% Bonus offer on IHG Point purchases over 10,000 points? I can’t seem to find it anywhere on the IHG or websites. Also, any idea on how long until those bonus points arrive? It is not instantly, as I’ve just tried. The purchased points posted instantly, but the “60% bonus” has thus far eluded my account. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

  4. The IC Bucharest is not on the list.

  5. You were too late. Hours after it going live and being announced on another blog faster, Bucharest was already sold out for September. Yesterday made a speculative booking for a week in August. Canceled it after plans couldnt be worked out.

    What does this mean: If you’re comfortable with using the cash and points trick, you can buy IHG Rewards points and then get a statement credit of 1 cent per Chase Ultimate Rewards point. This is a better value than redeeming Chase Ultimate Rewards points directly for IHG Rewards points.

    I did the cash and points trick already in the past but is this referring to buying them with my Ink card or something? I don’t understand how to get a statement credit of 1 cents per Ult Reward point.

    Also, did IHG change their offers for the overwater bungalows in Bora Bora (from your trip report) as I can’t seem to find any availability anymore, even a year out at the Thalasso (I think that’s the name). The only nights I found are a few nights in December OR maybe everyone is just finally jumping on board and booking their trips. I just wondered if IHG changed policies or something and they won’t be readily available anymore like they were when I started all my planning/saving.


  7. Why did you put a link to buy IHG points & say that you will receive a legit bonus when the bonus offer is targeted? It may be widely targeted, but targeted nonetheless. Do you bloggers do any fact checking first, or just take inaccurate information from 1 source (Mommy Points) & post the same thing? Sounds like the guy with the earlier comment was hosed because of bad info, but I’m sure a *YMMV fixes everything, right?

    • @Tammy Horvath – Instead of transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to UR, you are better off buying them using the “cash & points” trick and then getting a statement credit for 1 cent per point from Chase UR.
