IHG Points&Cash 15% discount reduces buy points to $4.85 per 1,000

Today I received an IHG Rewards Club email notifying me I have a targeted offer for 15% discount on the price of points when booking Points & Cash reward nights by Sep 25 for stays completed by Oct 28, 2018.

In past years I have used the IHG Points&Cash discount rate to buy IHG Rewards Club points at the lowest price I find for the year.

This discount rate makes it possible to purchase points for an even lower rate than $5.00 per 1,000 points, the rate when there is an IHG Rewards Club buy points with 100% bonus points promotion.

IHG Points & Cash 20,000 for rate $97 = $4.85/1,000.

InterContinental Monterey offers IHG Rewards Club Points & Cash rate to buy 20,000 points for $97. That comes out to $4.85 per 1,000 points.

Since points purchases made for an IHG Rewards Club Points & Cash booking are nonrefundable, reward night cancellation places those points back into your account.

This is a targeted offer.

Check your email or try a sample Points&Cash booking to see if you were targeted for this discount rate.

  1. How many of these can one buy, without annoying the powers that be in Manila or wherever ihg is based? Could I buy 100000 points for consumption in the next month or so?

    To put it in perspective I have about that amount that I have had sitting in my account for quite some time, which I also will be using up (all on one hotel in Paris).

    I like maintaining my relationship with ihg — platinum based on the credit card , but ihg is not even my second mistress.

  2. I got the offer…Do you always choose the lowest or highest $ amount + points ?

    I got 35k for all point stay, down to 15k points + $115

    So I choose the $115 ? A little confused…
