What’s the deal with bonus IHG Rewards?

With the current targeted flash sale from IHG Rewards Club, you can earn a bonus of up to 80% when you buy at least 1,000 points. You’ll need to get your skates on, though, as this offer ends in just a few days on December 16th, 2016.

You can buy between 1,000 and 60,000 points with this sale (although select members can currently buy up to 120,000 per year!)

There seems to be a tiered bonus with this offer, depending on what you’ve been targeted with – for example:

  • Buy 1,000 to 9,000 points to get a 40% bonus
  • Buy 10,000 or more points to get an 80% bonus

If you’re targeted for the 80% bonus and buy the usual maximum amount of 60,000 points for $690 total, you’ll get 108,000 points effectively for 0.64 cents each.

How do I get the bonus IHG Rewards deal?

Log in to your IHG Rewards Club account, check what you’ve been targeted with and then purchase your points here by December 16th, 2016.

Is it worth it to buy IHG Rewards Club points with this deal?

We recently saw a non-targeted offer of 100% bonus points, which is fairly popular as it’s the best offer we’ve seen for buying points with IHG. It may be wiser to wait until a 100% bonus comes around again unless you need to top off an award now.

It can often make sense to buy IHG Rewards Club points to use on the most expensive InterContinental properties or for PointBreaks redemptions, but it’s only usually worth buying or gifting points when they are needed, rather than buying speculatively.
