If you’re running short of IHG hotel points – good news – it seems they’re running an 80% bonus on purchases of 5000 points or over
You’ll need to sign into your account at https://storefront.points.com/IHG-rewards-club/en-US/buy?irgwc=1 (IHG uses Points.com as its front-end). Once signed in, you can select the amont you want
To take advantage, you’ll need to buy a minim of 5000 points (a net of 9000 points) starting at US$67.50
If you in the mood to splurge, you can buy up to 180,000 points for $1000
Check your offer. There was a variant in a few weeks ago that varied between 80% to 100% bonus.
The offer runs from December 10, 2018, to 11:59 PM ET December 28, 2018. The prices includes all fees.
Unsurprisingly, purchased points are not refundable. You can purchase up to a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year.
Points do take 72 hours to post.
As usual, this is a good chance to top your points balance if you need to make a redemption (because we all know stockpiling points and miles is a bad thing when the inevitable devaluation hits). Whilst I might be in the market for a few extra points – I might dip into this offer to grab a night or two worth of cheap points.
Why? I tend to use hotel points when cash prices are through the roof. It reduced a $600 stay at the Holiday Inn Bunker Hill down to £230.
Again. Value is where you find it – and there’s plenty of value to be had from this offer.
