IHG has released their latest mystery bonus promotion. Each account has been targeted with a mystery bonus and can range from 50%-100%. If you got a 100% bonus offer, this is the best price-point I have seen from IHG all year. The current IHG mystery bonus promotion is available for purchases made between July 13, 2018, and August 22, 2018. Bonus promotion can work wonderfully well in conjunction with the current or next round of PointBreaks promotion.
IHG mystery bonus promotion
The bonus kicks in with a minimum purchase of 5000 points. If your account was targeted for 100% bonus (I got only 50% on all my accounts), purchase of 100,000 points for $1,000 USD would yield a total of 200,000 points at 0.5 CPM – incredible value!
Recently, IHG increased the purchase cap from 60K to a 100,000 points. Members may purchase a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year and receive as a gift a maximum of 100,000 points per calendar year. Additionally, IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card offers fourth night free on award redemption, which enhances the points purchase value even further. Normally, points purchased appear in account within 24 hours, but can take unto 72 hours in some cases.
While purchasing points at 0.5 CPM is great by itself, leveraging the promotion with IHG PointBreaks properties is the best way forward. PointBreaks promotion allows members to book reward nights at select IHG locations for as little as 5000 points. IHG has improved this promotion, and now includes properties that can be redeemed at 5K, 10K and 15K, and also allows Points+Cash booking!!
While I don’t recommend buying points just to fatten your account balance, purchasing points to use at Pointbreaks properties or to top-up account balance towards a specific redemption, is a good way to go about it. Did you get the 100% bonus? Would you purchase points with 100% bonus this time around?
