According to Frequent Miler, there are some hotels that are "selling" points for .506 cents each (C+P trick), a little bit lower than the usual 0.57-0.6

http://frequentmiler.boardingarea.com/2017/03/13/buy-ihg-points-0-506-cents/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Frequent%20Miler%20%28Instant%29

With 0.57 - a 60,000/night hotel would be $342. At 0.506, it would be $303.60, a savings of $38.40. Not bad!
Has anyone been able to do this recently, or was this a limited time promo? Can't get points lower than .57-.6 from my searches

Very hard to find. It probably still exists but few and far between.

Will I lose my anniversary night if I cancel the credit card before using it?

There's a thread in the FT IHG forum about someone who managed to get the Hotel Indigo Rome to open up more point nights.  But generally, I think it's exceedingly rare.

If I'm using my own ihg free night and buying one for the night after with my name on the reservation. will the hotel allow me to stay in the same room if I ask them to combine the reservation when I'm already checked in. Did anyone ever experience something like this?

Should be fine. Email the hotel before just to be sure. The last thing they want to do is move you

I shouldn't just wait until I am there? The owner of the second certificate won't be there

You shouldn't have an issue either way. But obviously don't tell them owner of second cert won't be there....

Is it worth it to buy 120k points for 610$? 100% bonus offer

$610? I'm seeing $690 for 120k with the 100%. 610 makes it roughly 50 cents per, a pretty good deal. Though I tend to not buy IHG points unless I have a specific redemption in mind with availability. To each their own though
