Please allow 24-48 hours for points to post and appear in the recipient’s account. All other IHG® Rewards Club Terms and Conditions apply.”
IHG points come in handy for their high-end Intercontinental properties where many times it makes sense to use points instead of paying the real rate and that are where I end up using most of my points or also the PointsBreak lists whereby you can redeem for just 5,000 points. IHG usually runs 100% bonus promotion multiple times during the year hence I would be giving this one a pass and wait for that one. If anyone of you wants to top up some points to redeem now, this maybe a good way to use for now.
Update: There is a better deal as part of US Travel Daily Getaways offering 100,000 for USD $565. You can check it out here here
