Earn 100% bonus when you buy IHG Rewards points

To the point

For a limited time, you can buy IHG Rewards points with a bonus to save on your hotel nights.

Get a bonus when you buy IHG Rewards points

While there is no longer an IHG Rewards credit card in Canada, it is still possible to earn points:

If we do not recommend purchasing points during a regular period, it may be worthwhile during a promotional offer like now.

Until March 16, you could get a 100% bonus when you buy IHG Rewards points .

The maximum number of points may differ for each IHG Rewards account.

We have the opportunity to buy up to 150,000 IHG Rewards points and get 150,000 bonus points for a total of 300,000 IHG Rewards points. For a cost of US$1,500 or 0.5 US cents per point.

Is it worth buying IHG points?

The answer to this question is yes and no.

In Canada, we are not fortunate enough to have credit cards that directly or indirectly earn IHG Rewards points (unlike the multiple credit card options for earning Marriott Bonvoy points).

So, buying IHG Rewards points can be a great option ONLY when you have a particular goal in mind.

Personally, I value IHG Rewards points at 0.5 US cents (or 0.62 Canadian cents), although those points can be redeemed at a much higher value.

As part of this promotion, you can buy IHG Rewards points for 0.5 US cents per point.

Conclusion

Buying IHG points can be interesting for some people, whether for a specific travel objective and/or to complete a points balance in order to get a free night.

But if you’re not in one of these situations, we don’t recommend buying points and preferring other programs like Marriott Bonvoy or Best Western Rewards, for which it’s much easier to get points with credit cards!
