IHG’s Point Breaks is without a doubt one of the best on-going promotions in the hotel loyalty world. Point Breaks 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. You can’t beat that!
IHG has released the preview for the new list of Point Breaks which will be available to book starting Monday, September 29th and will be valid for stays through November 30th. The new lists appears extremely weak and only includes 1 InterContinental property which is the InterContinental Nha Trang – Vietnam. There doesn’t appear to be a single Hotel Indigo on the list and about 10 Crown Plaza locations.
While there may not be a ton of high-end hotels on this latest list you will still be getting a great deal booking anyone of these properties for only 5,000 points. IHG points have always been pretty easy to come up with by stacking multiple promo codes however, IHG has recently updated their terms and have threatened to close accounts and take points for signing up for offers that you do not qualify for. But you can still score 80,000 points with the IHG MasterCard from Chase. Check out this Flyertalk thread for details.
Check your travel plans and be ready to book your hotels on Monday as the more popular properties tend to sell out faster.
