Tomorrow’s Daily Getaway promotion (Week 3, Day 4) is offering the opportunity to purchase IHG Reward points at a discount. IHG Reward points can be used at any InterContinental Hotel Group brand which includes: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, hotel Indigo, EVENT hotels, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites, and Candlewood Suites.
This is actually the 2nd day this particular offer is available and as of right now the first offer is not yet sold out! So you might actually be able to just purchase the deal right now when it was offered in week 2 (although the 100,000 point offer is already sold out). So if you are looking to take advantage there is no doubt in my mind that you’ll be able to make this purchase.
With this offer you can get:
- 100,000 IHG Rewards Club Points for $630 (1,000 available); cost = .63 cents per point – you can purchase a maximum of 3 –> this is the best deal
- 15,000 IHG Rewards Club Points for $100 (2,500 available); cost = .67 cents per point – you can purchase a maximum of 5
- 25,000 IHG Rewards Club Points for $167 (2,000 available); cost = .68 cents per point – you can purchase a maximum of 4
- 50,000 IHG Rewards Club Points for $325 (1,250 available); cost = .65 cents per point – you can purchase a maximum of 4
With these four packages you are purchasing points between .63 and .68 cents per point. But, if you pay with an American Express credit card that can bring the cost down to as low as .57 cents per point. The cheapest you are able to purchase IHG points on a daily basis through a roundabout method is .7 cents per point, so this can definitely be a great deal. However, like all point offers, I do not suggest purchasing speculatively. Programs can devalue and you do not want to be stuck with points that you ultimately do not need.
The great thing about this offer is that there are a slew available!
Example of where this is a good deal: You can purchase 100,000 points for $567. That will get you two free nights at the InterContinental in Rome for example. This means each night will cost $283 which includes all taxes. Even during the most off-peak time, you most likely will never be able to find a room at this hotel that cheap.
Remember, IHG just announced their Point Break hotels where there is an entire list of hotels that only cost 5,000 points a night! It is a great opportunity to stay for cheap if there is a hotel on the list that you are looking to stay at. A three-night stay at a Point Break hotel, for example, will only cost you $30/night, and that includes taxes!
This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TOMORROW Thursday June 6th. While this is a very popular offer, there are so many available. Also remember, like all other Daily Getaway promotions, you’ll receive 10% off the purchase price if you use any American Express credit card!
