IHG Rewards’ latest promotion allows you to purchase points with a 100% bonus, bringing the overall cost down to 0.5 cents per point.
Let’s take a look at the details of the promotion and how you can maximize it.
Purchase IHG Rewards Points With a 100% Bonus
Between now and April 14, 2022, this offer provides the opportunity to purchase IHG Rewards points with a 100% bonus, which brings the cost of each point down to 0.5 cents.
Keep in mind that the promotion requires you to purchase at least 30,000 points to receive the 100% bonus — if you purchase fewer points than that, you’ll pay 0.575 cents apiece.
Here are the details you’ll want to be aware of:
- You can purchase up to 150,000 points, which would net you a total of 300,000 points after the 100% bonus (this costs $1,500).
- Purchased points, as well as any bonus points awarded under this offer, do not count towards IHG Rewards Elite status.
- Members may purchase a maximum of up to 150,000 points during a calendar year, so the number of points a member can purchase during the offer will depend on how many points have already been purchased during the same calendar year.
- This offer is available through 11:59 p.m. ET on April 14, 2022.
Unfortunately, this deal does not stack with the 20% discount on point purchases offered with the IHG® Rewards Premier Credit Card or the IHG® Rewards Premier Business Credit Card as those discounts only apply when there is no active purchase bonus promotion.
Is It Worth It?
We value IHG Rewards points at 0.5 cents per point, though you can certainly get more value than this if you redeem them strategically, so if you have a plan for redeeming the points you’d purchase with this promotion, it could be very well worth it.
The deal is especially worthwhile for those who hold one of the co-branded IHG Rewards cards and have access to the fourth-night free perk since you’d only need to purchase enough points to cover 3 nights — boosting your value by 25%!

As always, it usually only makes sense to purchase points if you have a specific plan to use them. When it comes to purchasing IHG points, 0.5 cents apiece is as good as it gets, so this is a great opportunity to top off your balance if you’ve been saving for a particular redemption. For those interested, remember that you only have until April 14, 2022, to take advantage of the 100% bonus.
