    Hi,

    Any suggestions besides points.com and Paypal option to exchange IHG points for cash?

    Besides redeeming these points for myself for points or points + cash award nights obviously at IHG properties ard the world?

    Thanks.

    Unless you're in very dire straights or have no plans or need to ever stay at IHG properties in the future, just save the points for hotel stays. Any option to cash out will not be at all lucrative.

    could not agree more.
    yes, book a reservation for a friend, family member or associate, recoup 80% or so of the room cost, they save some scratch and you do much better than points.com or other forum. BTW, welcome to Milepoint

    You can redeem for Target or Amazon Gift Cards which, for me at least, is as good as cash - you get $.0027 per point at the $200 redemption for 74,000 PC points. Not great, but better than Points.com

    Points.com is a highway robbery. The best to convert points to cash is what Sweet Willie said: book a room for a friend or relative.
