100% Bonus When Buying IHG Points
Until 11:59 pm on September 29, 2017, you’ll earn a 100% bonus when you buy 5,000+ IHG points.
Points must be purchased in 1,000-point increments, and there’s a limit of 60,000 purchased IHG points per calendar year. Only online points purchases are eligible (NOT over the phone).
But with this promotion, you can pay even less (just ~0.575 cents per point)!
Is This a Good Deal?
Yes! This is a great bonus if you need a few more IHG points to top-off your account for an award stay. It could even save you lots at regular IHG hotels! I tend to find the biggest savings at the highest category hotels and the lowest category hotels.
For example, a night at the category 1 Candlewood Suites Jacksonville East Merril Road in Florida costs $110+, or 10,000 IHG points.
With this 100% bonus, you could buy 10,000 IHG points for $67.50, and save $42.50 per night! ($110 per night – $67.50 cost of points per night award nights).
Chase IHG Increased Offer
A quick way to earn IHG points is to sign-up for the Chase IHG card. It currently comes with an increased sign-up bonus of 80,000 IHG points after you spend $1,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of account opening. The $49 annual fee is waived the first year.
Through September 29, 2017, you can buy 5,000+ IHG points and earn a 100% bonus, up to a maximum of 60,000 purchased points per year.
This is a good deal for folks who need to top-off their account for an award. But it can also be a good way to stay at certain IHG hotels at a discount! Do the math and see if this deal makes your upcoming travel cheaper.
