Nearly every month, IHG One Rewards is launching a promotion on purchased points which are mostly 100% bonuses and I believe the promotion it launched today is yet to be the best offer before the year ends.
Buy IHG One Rewards Points With A 100% Bonus
Through December 29, 2022, IHG One Rewards program is offering 100% bonus points when buying points. However, this promotion is targeted with a different percentage for each member so if you received an email from IHG, you will need to check your bonus.
As far as I know, the maximum bonus offered is a 100% bonus and the bonus will be applied when buying points starting at 5,000 points.
How Many IHG One Points Can You Purchase
Generally, IHG limits the points purchased to a maximum of 150,000 a calendar year. But rejoice, during this promotion, members can purchase up to 250,000 points. And this number is excluding the bonuses.
IHG One Rewards Points Pricing
IHG sells points at US$13.50 per block of 1,000. But during this promotion, you could buy up to 250,000 points at a cost of 1 cent per point. And of course, based on a 100% bonus offer, the value will decrease to 0.5 cents per point.
Redeeming IHG One Rewards Points
IHG One Rewards uses dynamic award pricing and there are no officially published award charts. While to cost to redeem for a night at an IHG property might vary, it usually has a fixed amount of points for a free night.
For example, a night at InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort costs 120,000 points per night at the overwater pool villa. Given that the cash rate starts from US$1,700 per night, you could stay up to 5 nights at a cost of US$2,500. That is a huge deal!
You could also have the option to pay Points + Cash on the stay which reduces the number of points needed plus some cash. But still, you can redeem points at attractive rates.
Through December 29, 2022, IHG One Rewards is selling points with a mystery bonus that offers up to a 100% bonus. Furthermore, the maximum purchase cap has increased to 250,000 points allowing members to earn up to 500,000 points including the bonus.
This is likely to be the last promotion for this year so if you have upcoming stays at IHG properties that have high paid rates, this is your opportunity to buy points at the best cost.
