Buying IHG points can be a great way to get a discount on your vacation. With this current offer, you get a 100% bonus on points purchased for anything over 30,000 points. Points are being sold at 1 cent each, meaning the cost would be 0.5 cents each
I went over the math the last time IHG had one of these sales and showed the savings possible. I don’t like to recommend buying points when you have no use for them. However at this price and the number of hotels in the IHG family, you have to work hard to lose money at this price (but it is possible).
Points purchases are run through Points.com so you don’t get any bonus for hotel purchases with your credit cards. IHG also limits points purchases to 100,000 points a year (not including the bonus points). Here’s the LINK to the promotion. You can purchase points with this promotion from anytime after signing up until October 31, 2018.
Here are some examples of uses for IHG points.
