Right now you should check your IHG account to see if you are targeted for a promotion where you can earn up to 100% bonus on points. You have to log into your account here to see your offer.
I was only targeted for 80% bonus and for me to get that level, I have to buy at least 20,000 points. Other readers report being targeted for 100% bonus points.

- At 100% bonus you will be paying .5 cent each.
- At 80% bonus you will be paying ~.638 cent each
My Offer for 80% Bonus
Looking for IHG Points?
You should also consider the offer that is still available on the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card.
Offer available for purchases made between 12:00 AM ET October 09, 2018, and 11:59 PM ET October 31, 2018. This is an exclusive, non-transferable offer for the intended recipient only and may not be forwarded. Bonus points will be awarded upon completion of the transaction. Bonus points will be awarded to the recipient of the points purchase. Offer is subject to change. Offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Only purchases made online are eligible for the bonus.
Price includes all applicable fees. Purchased points are not refundable and are applicable toward all IHG® Rewards Club awards. Members may purchase a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year. Please allow 72 hours for points to post and appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG® Rewards Club Terms and Conditions apply.
With the newest PointsBreak list is out and 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.
