The Fine Print

  • Valid until August 15, 2022

Our Verdict

This is the first transfer bonus we have seen to IHG. Not worth considering as you can frequently purchase IHG points for 0.5¢ per point. You can see a full list of transfer bonuses by clicking here.

It’s not bad because I can get a nice Holiday Inn here for about 11,000 points, which will now only cost me about 7,300 points. I do a lot of travel with my CSR, which gets me 3x per point (bulk of my points is this), so it is only 7,300/3 = the amount of money I need to spend to get a free night.

Its really bad because you could just cash out on the CSR/statement credit and then use that money to buy IHG points.

I agree. I use cashback cards to maximize the cash I have to purchase 0.5ccp IHG Points that I can easily spin to 0.8 to 2cpp. Now I just need a way to be able to buy cheap airline miles to match the hotel.

As someone else said here once: because Doc posts and leaves it to the readers to correct. Saves on paying for editing. Smart move:
