100% bonus when you buy IHG Rewards Club points

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

I wouldn’t blame you if you were getting jaded about the sheer number and frequency of hotel ‘buy points’ offers recently.

Today, you can get:

100% bonus when you buy Hilton points (link here)

40% bonus when you buy Hyatt points (link here)

30% discount when you buy Marriott points (link here)

IHG Rewards Club has now jumped back into the game for a few days with a 100% bonus, which as generous as you ever see.

The deal ends TOMORROW, 24th September.

InterContinental Lyon opens

The page to buy points is here.  It does not seem to be a targeted offer.

The standard prices, before the bonus, are:

  • 1,000 – 10,000 points for $13.50 per 1,000 points
  • 11,000 – 25,000 points for $11.50 per 1,000 points
  • 26,000 – 100,000 points for $10 per 1,000 points

With a 100% bonus, you would be able to buy 200,000 IHG points for (at current exchange rates for $1,000) £801.  

At the top end of the IHG Rewards Club portfolio, you have InterContinental properties which top out at 60,000 – 70,000 points per night. The new and impressive looking InterContinental Lyon pictured above is available for 55,000.

You should look at this if you have a ‘buy points’ target for the latest Accelerate promotion – although it makes more sense to buy 7,000 and get the bonus than buy 1,000 for no bonus.  If you are topping off your account, it is also a good deal irrespective of the exact cents per point cost.  The maximum number of points you can buy per year is 200,000 (ie 100,000 plus the 100,000 bonus if you were offered the maximum 100% extra).

You can buy via this link.  The offer ends TOMORROW, 24th September, so you don’t have much time.
