The broad strokes: You need to buy at least 7k points to receive a 100% bonus, and then you’re off and running. The price per point? Let’s break it down. If you were to buy the maximum 100,000, you would receive a total of 200k points for an effective purchase price of $0.005 per point.
That is their best ever.
I’ve listed a couple different ways that this can be beneficial to you ( other than shoring up an account), but as with any point currency, I never recommend speculatively buying points. You only have a few days to take advantage of the 100% bonus. Ends on September 24th.
7k points or more = 100% bonus
Maxing out the deal will set you back a grand.
A couple of ways to get a great deal
Let’s take a look at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand in Paris next summer. I stayed at the hotel in January 2019, and it’s in a great location. It’s currently in the midst of a renovation, but our room was quite large by Paris standards, and let me tell you, rates can get insane!
Parisian hotels can get absolutely ridiculous. Case in point…look at these prices: An average of $550 Euros a night…or over $600, that is prohibitively expensive for most any budget. But…points are available as well at 70k a night. With this deal…it’s $350 a night. However…that’s still a bit pricey and we can get that rate down even more when paired with the right card.
Stack this with the IHG Premier credit card for a great way to buy nights on the low low
Remember, award nights booked in accounts associated with Chase’s new IHG Premier card get a 4th night free when booking. So this hotel would cost the same for 3 nights as 4…210k. If you’re short that 10k, you could transfer them over from Chase to shore up your account to hit an incredible valuation.
So the roughly $2400 4 night stay becomes just 3 nights at $350 a night, or $1050. That’s $262.50, more than half the price.
