How to Get IHG Points
If you want to take advantage of the offer but don’t have any IHG points, there are several avenues open to you. You can signup for the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card which earns 60,000 bonus points after spending $1,000 on purchases within the first three months of account opening.
You can purchase IHG points with a 75% bonus. This offer is valid until February 5, 2017. However, this offer is targeted, so you will have to check that you are eligible. Alternatively, we reported recently on the 15% discount on the cash portion of points and cash IHG promotion. You can manipulate this promotion to buy points at a somewhat better rate than currently available with the 75% bonus. This promo has expired.
This is a great quarterly promotion from IHG so over the weekend check out all the destinations and your travel plans. You need to remember that you can only make two PointBreaks bookings per account and that the promotion only has limited availability, so make sure you book sooner rather than later!
