IHG Points & Money

HIX Camarillo, California requires a few as 1,250 points for an award night.

Holiday Inn Express Camarillo is normally 15,000 points per night for a Standard Award. The flash sale reduces the rate by 25% to 11,250 points.

Points & Money rewards allow a member to buy 10,000 points for $70 and pay only 1,250 points.

This means that anyone with 1,250 points in their account can book a one night stay for $70 + 1,250 points.

If the award stay is cancelled, then the 10,000 points purchased for the stay return to the member’s account. The $70 is nonrefundable and $70 is a good discount rate for purchasing 10,000 points.

A member with 5,000 points can book a 4-night stay and pay $280 for 40,000 points. Cancel that stay and 40,000 points go back to your account.

This is a way to buy from 5,000 to 40,000 points needed for hotel award stays.
