IHG PointBreaks have been one of the greatest single values in the hotel loyalty realm and that has not changed. PointBreaks offers you the chance to score a Reward Night for only 5,000 points per night at hotels that would normally cost anywhere from 10,000 to as much as 50,000 points per night. Available hotels change on a list that updates every couple months. This is can be a phenomenal value if you get in as soon as a new list is released. But due to limited availability you have to act fast.
IHG has now added restrictions to PointBreaks reservations which will be to an advantage to more customers than not. Here is the official disclosure that has been added to the PointBreaks page.
Due to the limited availability, each member may only book two PointBreaks® Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period. Offer and participating hotels are subject to change at any time, valid for booking through May 31, 2014. All other Reward Night terms and conditions apply. To view participating properties, simply click one of the regions below.
Previously there were no restrictions on how many seperate reservations one member could make which resulted in some members making many speculative bookings only to cancel them at a later date. The result was a quick filling up of the limited availability at these select hotels. I still fully expect the hottest properties to sell out really quick so you will still want to be on the ball as soon as the list gets released. We are actually coming due for another new list here next week!
