This is your last opportunity of 2018 to purchase IHG Rewards Club points with a bonus, which is currently an 80% bonus. Many other major hotel brands also have points bonuses, but the 80% bonus purchasing IHG Rewards Club points seems to be the most generous. Their hotel loyalty currency, IHG Rewards points can be redeemed at hotel chains including Holiday Inn, Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza. IHG allow for bookings as cash, points, or a split of cash and points which is great if you are looking to use up a small rewards balance.
This latest IHG points promotion offers up to an 80% bonus when purchasing points, and though this is lower than some of the bonuses seen earlier in the year there are some additional benefits.
Firstly, IHG have increased the amount of points you can purchase from 60,000 to 100,000 IHG Rewards Club points. This purchase amount is the amount without any bonus, so if you purchase the maximum amount of IHG points including the bonus you will receive 180,000 IHG Rewards Club points – more than every before. To earn the 80% bonus you need to purchase 5,000 points of more. Any purchase of 5,000 or more points will have a 80% bonus automatically applied. Lower purchase amounts will receive no bonus.
- Buy under 5,000 points and receive no bonus
- Buy 5,000 – 100,000 points and receive a 80% bonus
Secondly, the purchase price for an IHG point has decreased. If you purchase IHG Rewards Club points with the maximum 80% bonus this works out at around £4.00 per 1,000 points (charged in dollars at $5.50 per 1,000).
Purchase IHG points with a 80% bonus before 28th December 2018.
It’s worth remembering that IHG Rewards Club points will expire after 12 months if you have had no activity on your account (IHG define activity as either earning or redeeming). If you do have IHG Rewards Club points that are approaching expiry then you do not need to stay at their hotels to stop your points expiring. You can stop your IHG Rewards Club points balance from expiring by purchasing only 1,000 IHG points.
Offer ends 28th December 2018.
