Via a four day flash sale running from today through May 19, 2017, you can scoop up some IHG points at a rate as low as .575 cents per point. This is just slightly lower than the price available via this year’s Daily Getaways sale.
Since there are lots of ways to get discounted IHG points this isn’t a “must buy now sale price”, but it is a pretty solid price for purchased IHG points. As a real life example, we are using IHG points in NYC this month when paid rates happen to be super high for our travel dates. At .575 cents per purchased IHG point the 40,000 points per night mid-range Staybridge Suites type hotel comes to $230, which is a deal compared to paid rates those nights. Of course if you have the IHG credit card you then get 10% of your redeemed points back which makes the deal even sweeter.
Even better than that, if you have some IHG points purchased at this rate on hand, then you are poised to jump on 5,000 points per night Point Breaks at an equivalent rate of $28.75 per night, which is phenomenal! There are occasionally gems on that list like the Intercontinental Real Santo Domingo, but you have to book quickly which requires having points at the ready. Just remember to act by May 19, 2017 if you want in on this 100% IHG bonus points opportunity.
