Yes, the same way. Is it entirely OK to do that, no risk of any kind? The exact price is $0.00384 per point. Not sure, maybe possible to find even lower.

Points for 0.4 cents - good deal or not?

What's the opinion of this forum, is it a good deal to buy ihg points for about USD $40 per 10,000? Would you buy speculatively, just to stock up for uncertain future use?
