5 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: IHG (100%), Wyndham (25%), Avianca (120%), Southwest (45%) & United (95%)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Thursday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that end in the next week.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are 5 offers that end soon.

Up first, IHG Hotels is offering up to a 100% bonus, depending on the number of IHG One Rewards Points you purchase.  This offer expires tomorrow – October 21.

Here are the complete terms & conditions of the IHG Hotels promo:

This Offer is available to IHG One Rewards members for qualifying purchases of IHG One Rewards points made during the period from 12:00 AM ET October 10, 2022 through 11:59 PM ET October 21, 2022 (“Offer Period”). In order to qualify for this 100% bonus points Offer, a member must make a minimum purchase of 11,000 points per transaction. For example, if a member purchases 10,000 points during the Offer Period, they would not qualify for the 100% bonus. In contrast, if the member purchases 50,000 points during the Offer Period, the member would receive an additional 50,000 points as the 100% bonus, for a total of 100,000 points. The number of points a member may purchase, gift, or receive as a gift during the Offer Period is subject to annual limits under the IHG One Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions, which are available on www.ihg.com. Members may purchase a maximum of up to 150,000 points during a calendar year, so the number of points a member can purchase during the Offer Period will depend on how many points the member had already purchased during the same calendar year. For example, if a member had previously purchased 50,000 points in 2022, then the member could only purchase up to a maximum of 100,000 points during the Offer Period and would be eligible to receive the applicable percentage of additional bonus points based only on the number of points purchased during the Offer Period. Similar limits apply to gifting points and receiving points as a gift: A member may gift points to other members, up to a total of 150,000 points during a calendar year for all gifted points combined, and a member may also only receive up to a combined total of 150,000 points as gifts from other members during a calendar year. Purchased points, as well as any bonus points awarded under this Offer, do not count towards IHG One Rewards Elite status. This is an exclusive, non-transferable offer for intended recipients only and may not be forwarded. Offer is subject to change and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Purchased Points are not refundable and are applicable toward all rewards available through the IHG One Rewards program. Please allow up to 72 hours for points to post and appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG One Rewards Membership Terms and Conditions apply.
