IHG has released the new list of Point Breaks properties good for stays now through July 31st, 2014. The new list leaves a bit to be desired as far as I am concerned however, any property for 5,000 points a night is still a good deal. Surprisingly there is not a single InterContinental property on this new list but there are still several great properties available including 2 Hotel Indigo properties and 14 Crowne Plaza properties with the rest being Holiday Inn, Candlewood, or Staybridge properties.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with IHG Rewards Club Point Breaks, it is a rotating list of select hotels which IHG Rewards (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, InterContinental) offers up for only 5,000 points per night. The usual rates range anywhere from 10k – 50k per night making it a discount of 50%-90% off! The list changes every couple of months and includes hotels from all around the world.
IHG points can be pretty easy to accumulate by stacking multiple promo codes on a paid stay allowing you to easily earn as many as 20,000 points or more on a single weekend stay! Plus there is the 60,000 bonus point offer on the IHG Rewards Club Select credit card from Chase. There is also talk of an 80,000 point offer over on Flyertalk.
Typically we get the new lists a few days in advance before the new properties go live. But not this time. For whatever reason, there was no sneak peak and the new list is already live today and available to book effective immediately. And although IHG has added new rules limiting each member to only 2 Point Breaks Reward Nights reservations per hotel, you can still count on the more popular properties booking up fast. So get your travel plans figured out and get your reservations booked!
