IHG credit card spend for 70K bonus. Smart to buy points/miles to reach spend?
What I am asking is if I were to apply for the IHG rewards card that requires $1,000 in spend for the 70,000 points bonus…would it make sense to buy $1,000 worth of points and miles (particularly ones on sale such as the IHG points) to reach that spend because of the value of return?
@ Nick — Is that simply because you couldn’t otherwise reach the minimum spend? If so, I figure you’d be better off just sending someone $1,000 through Paypal and eating the fee rather than spending it on points. I wouldn’t let meeting minimum spend requirements dictate which points you purchase.
