IHG Rewards Club has a flash sale this week for 100% bonus points when you buy 7,000 or more points through September 24. The sweet spot for this offer is when you spend $260 to buy 52,000 points for a $5.00 per 1,000 points rate. The minimum purchase at 7,000 points for 100% bonus points is $94.50 to buy 14,000 points at a rate of $6.75 per 1,000 points.

  • Buy 1,000 to 6,000 points at $13.50 per 1,000 points.
  • Buy 14,000 to 20,000 points at $6.75 per 1,000 points.

There are many IHG hotel rate discounts to be found with purchased points at $5.00 per 1,000 points. I recently booked a 3-night reward stay at a 25,000 points per night hotel when the 3-night paid rate was $552. With this sale a member can buy 76,000 points for $380. This purchase rate for IHG points made the points rate for my hotel reservation equivalent to $127 per night for a 31% discount on the posted rate for the IHG hotel.
