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 Times at the end of September. I stayed at the hotel 2 years ago, and if you’re a Broadway fan…it’s in a fantastic location. I was quite impressed with the size of our room and how little noise we heard.
New York hotels can get absolutely ridiculous. Case in point…look at these prices: An average of $700 a night. Outrageous, but…points at available as well at 70k a night. With this deal…it’s $350 a night.
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.
