IHG One Rewards has been running a time-limited 100% ‘buy points’ bonus, which is as generous as you ever see.
This offer expires today, 29th December.
The maximum number of points you can buy is 500,000 (ie 250,000 plus the 250,000 bonus). The minimum purchase to trigger the bonus is a surprisingly high 30,000 points.
With a 100% bonus, you would be able to buy up to 500,000 IHG One Rewards points for (at current exchange rates for $2,500) £2,070.
I usually value IHG One Rewards points at 0.4p. You are paying 0.41p at the top end so you are unlikely to lose money. The skill is to use them at hotels where you can get substantially more than 0.4p per point of value, although this got a little harder since IHG moved towards revenue-based redemption pricing.
You can buy points via this link. You have until tonight, Thursday 29th December, to jump in.
