IHG Rewards Club’s buy points bonus flash sale offer has returned until November 8. Once again it is a 100% bonus however this time you only have to buy 5,000 or more points to get the bonus. Once again the annual purchase limit has been raised to 250,000 points before the bonus.
Buying 250,000 points (500,000 total with bonus) costs US$2,500 which means each point will only cost you 0.5 cents. However you don’t have to buy that many to get in on that lowest price, the 0.5 US cents per points kicks in when you buy at least 26,000 points. We don’t encourage buying points just because there is a bonus but if you can foresee a potential use for them in the next 4-6 months it can definitely be worthwhile to buy them.
100% bonus when you buy 5,000 or more IHG Rewards Club Points. Buy Points here. Until Nov 8, 21

I’m travelling to the UK in the next 6 months and thought buying some points to use. However when comparing the cash price compared to the cost of points the best result I would get is $50 cheaper per night. Which to me is not worth the effort given the risk of a potential devaluation over the next six months. Although one advantage of using points is that when you cancel a booking you get all the points back into the account.
I always like to compare using points to the cheapest rate that allows you to cancel in determining value. The prepaid non-refundable rates are always a risk should your travel plans change. Is the rate you found at $50 cheaper refundable?
