IHG is offering a nice promotion on points now through March 22, 2018. With this promotion, you get 100% more points when you buy 5,000 or more IHG Rewards Club points. This offer is better then what they had back in January/February. If you have a specific redemption in mind, you may want to check this one out.
IHG 100% Bonus On Points
- maximum of 60,000
- with 100% bonus, price is 0.5 cents per point.
If you compare the cost of buying the points to the hotel nightly cost that you are looking to book, this promotion could save you some good money! For example, a few years ago we stayed at the InterContinental Thalasso Bora Bora which for an overwater bungalow can run you $900+ a night. If you can get award availability, you can certainly do better paying with points.
