    Hmmm… My Hilton offer has the following line as well: Through May 28, 2019 members may purchase a maximum of 160,000 points per calendar year.

    Doubling the normal annual cap, only during this sale.

    IHG has also done this for me: once I buy up to the annual cap, they raised my cap.

      That’s very interesting, I never knew that. It makes sense for the loyalty program to let their members buy as many miles or points that they want.
