Get A 100% Bonus+Discounted Pricing When Purchasing IHG Points! Lock In PointBreaks For $25/Night, Crowne Plaza Jerusalem For $100 Or Less

An IHG account is required, you can join here for free.

IHG normally sells points directly for 1.15 cents each. You can also transfer points from Chase, but that’s a criminal use of Chase points.

Points are on sale through 11/30 for just 1 cent each and IHG will also double all the points you purchase. To get the lowest rate (.5 cents per point) you’ll need to purchase at least 26K points which will be doubled to 52K points for $260. Of course you’ll also earn points on your credit card which will make the effective rate less than .5 cents per point.

You can purchase 100K points per member per year, so you can get up to 200K points with this promotion which would cost $1,000.

Note that IHG points require activity every 12 months, but you can just redeem for a hotel award and then cancel it to extend the expiration for another 12 months!

IHG runs PointBreaks which allows you to book rooms at rotating hotels starting at just 5,000 points per night. That’s just $25 for a room if you buy points at .5 cents each. Those hotels rotate every couple of months.

Plus you don’t pay tax on award nights.

There are also good values to be had at high-end properties in NYC, London, Paris etc. For example an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora can go for as much as $1,000 with tax but costs just 70K points. That’s just $350 at .5 cents per point.

If you have the Chase IHG Premier card you’ll also get a every 4th award night for free.

That means 4 nights at a top-tier hotel would cost 210K points, or an average of 52,500 points per night. Those points will cost $262.50 with this promotion.

There are several IHG hotels in Israel. They won’t necessarily be a deal with this promotion, but they may be depending on the price of your desired travel dates. Prices below are based per night on a 4 night stay for IHG Premier Cardholders or for a regular one night stay.

  • Crowne Plaza Jerusalem: 15K-20K ($75-$100)
  • Crowne Plaza Eilat: 15K-20K ($75-$100)
  • Crowne Plaza Dead Sea: 18,750-25K ($93.75-$125)
  • Hotel Indigo Tel Aviv Diamond District: 18,750-25K ($93.75-$125)
  • Crowne Plaza Haifa: 22,250-30K ($111.25-$150)
  • Crowne Plaza Tel Aviv Beach: 22,250-30K ($111.25-$150)
  • Crowne Plaza Tel Aviv City Center: 22,250-30K ($111.25-$150)
  • InterContinental David Tel Aviv: 37.5K-50K ($187.50-$250)
  • Jerusalem’s newest luxury hotel will also be an IHG hotel.

The Chase IHG Premier card is offering 80,000 points for signing up and spending $2,000 in 3 months.

The Chase IHG card is not subject to the Chase 5/24 guidelines, so you can get approved even if you have 5 or more approved consumer card applications within the past 24 months.

The card comes with an annual certificate good for a free stay in IHG hotels that cost up to 40K points.

IHG points will not expire for as long as you remain a cardholder.

You can get the signup bonus as long as you haven’t received an IHG signup bonus within the past 24 months.

If you have the new IHG Premier credit card you’ll also get Platinum status and every 4th award night for free!

If you have both the IHG Select card and the IHG Premier card you’ll get every 4th award night free AND a 10% rebate on award nights!

The new IHG Premier card also comes with free Global Entry/TSA Pre-Check.

Will you buy IHG points at this rate?

how far in advance can hotels usually be booked?

Yoel

You can also transfer points from Chase, but that’s a criminal use of Chase points. Please explain why?

yisroel

did anyone get a taste of spire elite stues for 90 days added to their account after they signed up for it

moishe

anyway to match and get 100k plus 50 dollar statement credit?

gabs

i just apllied for the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card and got this message:

“We need to review your request a little longer. We will let you know of our decision as soon as possible”

what does this message mean?

Someone

Isn’t it still cheaper to “buy” points by booking cash and points awards?

Ephraim

Dan, how do they make up when to let you buy more than the 100K yearly limit? I missed the last one in October when they increased the limit. Anyway around it?

Isaac

Chase allows me to transfer my IHG point to my ultimate rewards. Should I transfer all my points.

Harry

If i closed my card after the anual fee came up are the benefits such as the 4th night free attached to my account?

Harry

I mean to say would they still be attached to my account even though i closed my card? I let the card cycle for another year before closing it so it effect reset me to still get the plat statues for one more year

DH7

Other non-point options at the Crown Plaza Jerusalem have the option to add breakfast for ~$20/night, do you know if this is something that can just be paid for day-of?

Chacham

@Dan: Really off topic…but tomorrow’s the last day for transfer bonus from Amex to BA. Have 80k Amex sitting and have now run dry in BA Avios account. Would you say it’s better to transfer to the 80k BA Avios or to Lifemiles?
Thanks!

Dan

This is really good promotion. When comparing to cash prices, remember that usually you have to pay 10-15% tax on top of cash rates, but avoid that when using points.

Samson7256

Dan, any idea if would I receive 5x points for this purchase if I use my IHG select card ? Not sure if this charge is the same as a charge at an IHG hotel. If so I could maybe purchase less since I am trying to obtain a particular amount for an upcoming redemption.

Samson7256

Upon further review I’ve learned that since the transactions are posted by points.com, you will not earn bonus points for using an IHG card.

Isaac Stern

Hi Dan,
Can I sell these points once I buy them? How much are they worth?

bukin86

Anyone know if Israelis have to pay VAT on stays exclusively booked through points?

Right now, dead sea is 25k points but only about $115

Ephraim

If I reached my limit, can my wife buy and then get the bonus, but then pay again and gift those points to me and get a double bonus? I am doing this to take advantage of my Platinum Ambassador status when booking.

robin hirsch

what about the holiday inn miami beach oceanfront ?

Rochel

On the IHG website it says that the Dead Sea hotel is in Jordan. Is it safe to go, or is it really in Israel and fine?

A

There are 2 Crowne Plazas at the Dead Sea. 1 is in Jordan and the other is in Israel. If it says Jordan, then it’s the Jordan one.
