Last chance for 80% IHG Rewards Club ‘buy points’ bonus

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

Until 1st May, you can still 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

InterContinental Times Square

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.
