100% Bonus on Purchased IHG Points – Rooms From $33.75!

From February 14 – February 17th you can get a 100% bonus on purchased IHG points as long as you purchase at least 5,000 points! You can purchase up to 60,000 IHG points in a calendar year – for a total of 120,000 points deposited in your account with this 100% bonus!

With this 100% bonus the per point price drops to between $0.00575 – $0.00675 each. In other words, the price ranges from just under 6/10 – just under 7/10 of a cent each. That is not the absolute lowest purchase price I have ever seen for IHG points, but it is pretty darn good.

At that per point rate, a 5,000 points per night PointBreaks room would just cost you $28.75 – $33.75 per night! For somewhere like the Intercontinental Maracaibo or even the Candleswood Suites Roswell New Mexico (that are both still available on the last PointBreaks list), that is a great deal. Remember that IHG cardholders will get 10% of their redeemed points back, making it an overall even sweeter deal.

Buying a few points now will also ensure you are ready when the next PointBreaks list comes out in a couple months since the most popular properties usually sell out within hours and points purchases do not post instantly.

If you want in on this flash sale for a 100% bonus on purchased IHG points remember that the offer only runs until February 17, 2017.

  1. On my account page, 60000+60000=120000 points, which costs $690, which in turn equals $.00575/point, or $5.75 per thousand. Not quite as good as the $5.10 per thousand you found a while back in Dallas, but getting close.

    • Good catch! Okay, it seems that your price per point depends on how many points you purchase. It will range from .00675 – .00575 depending on how many your purchase. That is a very solid price!

  2. I think that the Intercontinental Maracaibo will remain available.

    It has become very complicated for an American to go to Venezuela. It takes at least one and maybe more in-person visits to the consulate in your region, with a dizzying array of documents that must be presented (stuff like house deed, car title, etc., varying depending on the mood of the person that day, and not fully listed at the website); processing delays that will run into weeks at least, with you out of possession of your passport; with no assurance the visa will ever be approved, and with the significant fees kept by them even if it is not. I would warn anyone not to buy IHG points with the thought you’re going to bask in the sun at Maracaibo.
