IHG points per se can get some great deals out there. But you are better off redeeming points with the IHG PointsBreak promotion, where you can book hotels for discounted redemption rates.

Even without other promotions, you can get good deals on hotel bookings. Look at the InterContinental Cartagena de Indias for example. This hotel in Colombia is would usually cost you upwards of USD 210 + taxes/night. But you can bring this number down to USD 175/night by burning 35,000 points that you purchased during this promotion. That’s a saving of 25% there.


IHG has become relatively regular with their 100% bonus points promotion. Hence, if you missed picking up points during the previous promotions, this is your chance. At the same time, avoid buying points for the heck of it. It is good practice first to figure out whether or not does purchasing points help you achieve your travel goals for less. If you are falling short of a few points for your dream redemption, go ahead and buy some points.
