IHG Rewards Club has another promotion for 12% discount on Points & Cash reward stays copay amount for bookings made by March 30 and completed by April 30, 2017.
Several blogs posted yesterday that Feb 17 was last day for IHG Rewards Club 100% bonus points purchase at $5.75 per 1,000 points. This Cash & Points 12% discount is a less expensive way to buy IHG Rewards Club points at $5.50 per 1,000 points.

$110 buys 20,000 points at rate of $5.50 per 1,000 points.
This may be a targeted offer for IHG Rewards Club MasterCard members? There is no direct link in the email I received.
Last month there was a 15% discount rate offer on Points & Cash stays. In general, I don’t find too much value in IHG Rewards Club points, except the occasional PointsBreak or a low category hotel in some cities. I earn points on paid stays with promotions like Accelerate 2017, a promotion I will complete this week.

Holiday Inn Krakow is one hotel I stayed in 2016 for 15,000 points per night and that was a good deal last July, but that hotel increased to 20,000 points with 2017 reward category changes and reduced the marginal difference between points rate value and paid rate.
