Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Last chance to buy IHG, Hilton and Hyatt points at a discount

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

As it is a quiet Bank Holiday weekend, I thought it was worth taking the time to remind you of three potentially OK ‘buy points’ offers which are currently available from three hotel chains.

All of these offers close tomorrow.

50% – 100% bonus with IHG Rewards Club

IHG Rewards Club is offering a targetted bonus of 50% – 100% when you buy points.You need to log in to the IHG ‘buy points’ page here to see what you are being offered.

If it is a 90% or 100% bonus, it is well worth considering.  I ran the numbers in this article.

IHG Rewards Club 350

80% bonus with Hilton HHonors

Hilton is offering a flat bonus of 80% to everyone via this link.

You should take a look at my analysis from Thursday which is here.  This offer may make sense if you tend to stay at low category Hilton properties or need to top up your account.  It does NOT make sense to buy points to stay at their most expensive hotels.

Hilton Diamond 350

30% bonus with Hyatt Gold Passport

This is the weakest of the offers as I wrote here.  The 30% discount is only worth a look if you are looking to top off your account to reach the required total for a redemption.

    slightly OT: Does anyone know if you can book a room with points at an IHG hotel and then pay to upgrade. The situation would be booking the standard double room for 30k points and then asking to pay the difference to upgrade to a suite (c $100)?

      If you contact the hotel directly, I think they can usually offer you some options.
