IHG has released a preview of the new Point Breaks list that will be available for booking starting July 28th through September 30th. The last list was a bit of a disappointment and didn’t even include a single InterContinental property. This time around the list looks a bit better and includes 5 InterContinental properties including the Intercontinental Bucharest – Romania, Intercontinental Cali – Columbia, Intercontinental Costa Rica at Multiplaza Mall – Costa Rica, Intercontinental Real Guatemala – Guatemala, & the Intercontinental Miramar Panama – Panama. In addition to these properties, the list also features 2 Hotel Indigo properties and 15 Crowne Plaza locations along with the usual mix of Holiday Inn’s, and others.
At only 5,000 points per night every property on the list is a steal but here are some that caught my eye.
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 which has been around a while and I successfully signed up for a year ago.
