Amex Daily Getaways is a program that American Express runs each year in conjunction with the US Travel Association. It runs for several weeks and offers a different deal each day for a different travel program. Each day offers tiered purchase options for points, miles, or other travel currencies. Many of the offers are nothing to get excited about, but this option may prove useful for some.
Buy IHG Points On Sale
Today’s Daily Getaway presents the opportunity to purchase IHG points on sale from their normal cost. Typically, the cost to purchase them outright is between 1.15 cents and 1.35 cents per point (depending on the amount of points purchased). Let me make note here, it is possible to get them cheaper than that every day by making a reservation points/cash reservation and then cancelling. For more information, check out this post on the topic here. This method lets you purchase the points at a cost of .7 cents per point.
But, today, you can purchase different packages of IHG points through the Daily Getaway at a cost under .68 cents per point – and even less depending on the amount you use and the card you use. If you use an American Express card, you will save 10% on the total cost! Let’s look at the offerings:
|Amount of Points||Cost||Cost per Point||Cost Per Point When Using Amex Card||Number of Packages|
|15,000||$100||.67 cents||.6 cents||2,500|
|25,000||$167||.68 cents||.6 cents||2,000|
|50,000||$325||.65 cents||.59 cents||1,250|
|100,000||$630||.63 cents||.57 cents||1,000|
Buying points may not be the best choice for many people, but I am highlighting this deal because the full list of the next IHG Point Breaks comes out tomorrow! This is a great chance to get some points to secure some very cheap Point Break hotels. At 5,000 a night, it would cost you around $30 for the night if you use points purchased with this deal. Not bad! Of course, these points can be used for any other IHG hotel as well. If you are not currently flush with IHG points (which you can get 80K of through this card), this would be a nice way to get ready for some great summer deals!
The purchase link (here) goes live at 1:00PM! So, get your American Express card ready to go and take your pick of the package!
