Buy IHG Points with a 50% Discount (Limited Quantity Available)

This IHG Points Purchase promotion has ended, however, you can still purchase IHG points.

The Daily Getaways annual promotion from the U.S. Travel Association is back. For the next five weeks, there will be a new offer each weekday for discount packages with select travel brands. Offers go on sale at 1:00 p.m. ET and are available until the deal has sold out. The first deal, which launched this afternoon, is for a 50% discount on IHG points.


Offer Details

There are four packages of discounted IHG points available:

  • 10,000 points for $50 (410 available)
  • 35,000 points for $175 (440 available)
  • 60,000 points for $300 (425 available)
  • 100,000 points for $500 (550 available)

Our Take

IHG occasionally sells points with a 100% discount, which would be equivalent to the deal on offer today to buy IHG points at 0.5 cents per point. The main advantage to this promotion (in addition to the fact that there isn't currently a 100% bonus available to buy through IHG directly) is that points purchased through Daily Getaways do not count towards the annual limit of 100,000 points purchased.

Although a 50% discount isn't a jaw-dropping deal, it is on par with the lowest cost we typically see for buying IHG points, so this is definitely worth a look if you're interested in topping up your account for a redemption. It's hard to know how long these will last, but many of the Daily Getaways deals sell out within a matter of hours, so don't wait if you want to get in on the deal.

  • I am a buyer at a half a penny a point in preparation for the next point break promotion.

  • Maryjane says:

    I’ll pass on this one. There are much better ways to get IHG points.

  • Getting into Hotel points when you don’t travel is hard, especially reading a lot of the horror stories with Bonvoy, I bet IHG is the better bet, good info.

  • The Arts Traveler says:

    I am going to use this offer to top off the account for an award. I know there may be better offers later, but I need to do the award now.

  • Michaelj1 says:

    FYI. It is 3:37PM on Monday, May 6, 2019. All of the IHG deals are still available.

  • Rob Tomanek says:

    Thanks for putting this online. Great help.

  • I had no idea what the U.S. Travel Association was. Looking forward to learning more about these travel assistants as we get to retirement. Thanks!

  • Always check availability first though!

  • good offer but limited quantities available. similar to previous 100% bonus points offers in terms of price

  • IHG points at Daily Getaways seem to tend to hang around, unlike some other better, high-value offerings. I’ve never been able to actually hit one of the really desirable offers, personally.

  • Combining this offer with the pointbreak hotel list is definitely the biggest value one can get for IHG properties!!!!

  • This is a good deal. Especially for peak seasons. Also, you don’t need to pay taxes on award stays.

  • Douglas Cowan says:

    IHG Points. Worth noting the 24-48 hours delay. “Points must be purchased in minimum increments of 1,000 points, and can only be paid for by an accepted credit card. No cancellations or refunds are permitted. Points will post to member’s account within 24-48 hours of purchase.”

  • Good article – thank you – I had misinterpreted a 50% discount as being a 50% bonus, so thanks for spelling it out and reminding me otherwise! Agree with your take, and the added benefit that it doesn’t count towards your annual limit. I guess part of the driver for dipping into deals like this depend on whether you’re being speculative (ie. might need the points) or whether you have a planned redemption / points total in mind.

  • Michael Hendrickson says:

    This is a great heads up! I am planning a trip with IHG points and I am a few thousand points short. I guess now is the time to get them!

  • Sold out…

    I don’t see the value any more, even at 0.5 cents, but I guess enough people do…

  • The_Bouncer says:

    As you say, this is a fairly typical price. Even with the thumping devaluations of recent years, $5/1000 is still not bad if you have an immediate use for the points.

  • Steven William Van Meter says:

    The part I like the best is that points purchased through Daily Getaways do not count towards the annual limit of 100,000 points you can buy.

  • It’s a so-so deal, about what they all seem to be. Not worth it for me right now.

  • Having quite a lot of IHG points I’ll not buy more points.
    Moreover, I think that apart pointbreaks (and so you must be lucky in finding a hotel you’re interested in staying) there are not a lot of good redemptions to do.

  • Is this actually a good deal or is it good just to top off to make a booking?

  • Very cool, thanks for the tip.

  • I’ve totally switched from Marriott to IHG due to the latter having more attractive rates where I travel.

  • Marlin Seevers says:

    The lodging expense is one of the biggest costs of travel, so it is a high priority to avoid or keep to a minimum. So I appreciate ways to use awards to lower costs in the long run. That’s why I’m hoping AwardWallet will be able to help me keep track of the award potential out there.

  • These deals are always just shy of what would make them a great deal.

  • I’ll pass on this promo as well. Even with the bonus, the points cost more than the discount they provide. Using points+cash is the way to go if you are short on points for a redemption.

  • reward night rooms from Chase IHG CARD + reservations with such points = a bridge too far?

  • Patrick B. says:

    Interesting deal, but not one that i’d likely participate in

  • linda zynger says:

    Going to use this to keep account from expiring . Will buy 10000 for $50.

  • jacob zynger says:

    Just checked and completely sold out

  • Pauline Fitzgerald says:

    This is an only OK deal for me.

  • Promotions like this make IHG all worthy program

  • I think IHG is a pretty good programme given their range of hotel brands. Unfortunately this offer says it is sold out now.
