IHG Rewards Club buy points 100% bonus to Aug 22

IHG Rewards Club has a buy points promotion for up to 100% bonus points when you purchase IHG points by August 22. My offer is 100% bonus points. This promotion drops the price of points to $5.00 per 1,000 points.

You need to login to your IHG Rewards Club account to see what your specific bonus points percentage offer is for this promotion.

The lowest purchase price comes with 100% bonus points when you buy at least 26,000 points at $10 per 1,000 points and receive 52,000 points for $260. IHG Rewards Club members can buy up to 100,000 points in calendar year 2018. Bonus points do not count toward annual purchase limit. In this example, only 26,000 points count toward the limit and not the additional 26,000 bonus points received through the 100% bonus points promotion.

$260 = 52,000 IHG points

The next list of IHG Pointbreaks hotels should post in about 10 days, before the end of July, for stays August through October 2018. This list will likely include around 200 hotels priced at 5000, 10000 and 15000 points per reward night for a limited time until the allocated PointBreaks rooms are booked out. These hotels are discounted generally 50% or more from standard reward points price.

Buying points makes PointBreaks hotels $25, $50 and $75 per night. I will have my eye out for any good deals I can take advantage of in Europe for October 2018 stays.
