Until 1st May, you can buy IHG Rewards Club – the InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza etc scheme – points with a bonus of up to 80%.
The page to buy points is here – log in and see what is available.
This is not the most generous offer IHG has had, and it is also staggered which is unusual:
- Buy 7,000-19,000 points, get a 40% bonus
- Buy 20,000-29,000 points, get a 60% bonus
- Buy 30,000+ points, get an 80% bonus
Some people have an even better offer of a 100% bonus although 80% seems to be the most common.
I wouldn’t buy speculatively with an 80% bonus as I am fairly sure that a 100% bonus for everyone will be along in a few months. If you need to top up your account in advance of a planned short-term redemption, however, you might as well do it whilst the bonus is on.
