Until July 31, 2020, get 100% more points when you buy IHG Rewards Club points! A good way to save on your hotel nights.
Buy IHG Rewards Club points with a bonus
If in Canada, there is no longer a credit card linked to the IHG program, it is still possible to earn points:
- with a stay at one of the IHG Group hotels
- by buying IHG Rewards Club points
If we advise against the purchase of points “in regular periods”, it can be advantageous during the promotion period, as is currently the case.
100% more points when purchasing IHG points
Until July 31, 2020, you could get 100% more IHG points when you buy points.
The maximum number of points may differ depending on each IHG account.
We are able to buy up to 250,000 IHG points and get 250,000 bonus points or 500,000 IHG points total.
In our case, we could get 500,000 points (including 250,000 bonus points) for US$2,500 = $0.005 per point.
To get this rate, you must buy at least 3,000 IHG points (in our case):
Usually, buying IHG points costs between US$ 0.01/point and US$0.0135/point: with this bonus, the saving is substantial: US$ 0.005 per point (CA$ 0.0066)
If you want to buy IHG points, the transaction will be made in U.S. dollars.
We recommend using a credit card that does not charge any conversion fees on foreign currency transactions such as the Scotiabank Passport™ Visa Infinite* card.
