I have been buying IHG points for a few years now and redeeming points for hotel stays. All our stays were not at any fancy locations. Just this week, I booked a room at Holiday Inn Express Manteca City Center for my daughter’s soccer tournament. The room would cost $190 before taxes, or 15,000 points. So at the cost of 0.576 per point, 15,000 points would cost me just $86.40, a saving of over $100 for the room!
A few years ago my family of five went to Ocean City Maryland over 4th of July weekend. We stayed at the Holiday Inn & Suites Ocean City, right on the beach. The hotel is not fancy by any means, but the room does fit all five of us. The best part? We paid 35,000 points for a room that was priced at well over $450 per night. Today, the hotel costs 40,000 points a night, but you can still get a substantial saving using points purchased instead of paying cash.
Holiday Inn Vacation Clubs have two-bedroom suites that can accommodate up to 8 people. Some of these suites can be redeemed for 25,000 to 35,000 points a night, often representing good savings compared to paying with cash.
Of course, you can also redeem IHG points for high-end Intercontinental hotels that require 60,000 points a night, capping the cost at $345.60 if you use points purchased through Daily Getaway. You can also redeem just 5,000 points for IHG point break hotels, which is like paying less than $30 per night!
Note that points purchased under Daily Getaway do not count towards IHG’s annual limit of 60,000 points per year. IHG has 100% buy point bonus promotion every year, allowing the purchase of 60,000 points with a bonus of 60,000 points. The cheapest cost was $690, equivalent to 0.575 per point. Of course, you can always buy IHG points indirectly at 0.7 cents per point.
I will be buying today to refill one of our IHG accounts. I am sure I will be able to use the points for hotel stay near soccer games or college football games within the next year. Do you plan to purchasing IHG points at these rates?
