Buy up to 120,000 IHG points half-price
IHG fans may be interested in this “Flash Sale” on IHG points, making each point just half a cent.
Just buy at least 5,000 points (up to 60,000 for 120,000 total) using the Flash Sale link and you’ll get a 100% bonus.
Should you do this? I never advise stockpiling points. Have a use in mind and know it’s a good deal first. If you find a property you want to stay at that is 40,000 points or $275 a night, for example, you could buy the 40,000 points for $200 and save $75. Cash and points can be an even better deal. Keep in mind that a transfer of Ultimate Rewards points would be 1:1, making this much, much better than that if you were even considering it. But if you don’t have a redemption that makes sense now, you may want to skip the sale. There will be others.
Also, keep in mind that points.com manages this and so the points purchase has to go through them. ANY mis-match in information between your IHG account and your credit card is likely to cause the transaction to fail so be careful. I learned this the hard way in 2016.
