IHG latest sale is a 100% bonus on points purchase, a fairly regular promotion. The big difference though is that the purchase limit for this promotion has been increased to 250,000 IHG points. IHG 100% bonus is available on purchase of 3000 points or more, at 0.5 cents price-point is the cheapest I have seen. The offer is available for purchases made between May 6, 2020 and 11:59 PM ET June 15, 2020 inclusive.

IHG 100% BONUS

Link to Promotion

The tiered bonuses kick in with a minimum purchase of 5000 points. Purchase of 100,000 points for $1,000 USD would yield a total of 200,000 points at 0.5 CPM – incredible value!

IHG 100% BONUS

 

IHG has increased the purchase cap from 100K to a 250,000 points. Members may purchase a maximum of 250,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 250,000 points per calendar year. Additionally, IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card offers fourth night free on award redemption, which enhances the points purchase value even further. Normally, points purchased appear in account within 24 hours, but can take upto 72 hours in some cases.

While I don’t recommend speculative points purchase in these uncertain times, it is a good way to top-up account balance towards a specific redemption, albeit far into the future.  Would you purchase points with 100% bonus this time around?
