One of the very best deals in the ‘hotel points world’ are the IHG Rewards PointBreaks lists that make hotels available for just 5,000 points per night! The list changes every few months and you never know if there will be anything you like on there or not, but it’s always worth a look. And the “good” hotels always good very quickly! I wanted to share a head’s up that the new PointBreaks list will be posted on Tuesday, May 27 for bookings and stays from May 27 to July 31, 2014 (subject to availability).
- Crowne Plaza Hotel Bangkok- Lumpini Park, Thailand
- Crowne Plaza Johannesburg-The Rosebank, South Africa
- Hotel Indigo San Jose Forum, Costa Rica
- Holiday Inn Hotel Laval- Montreal, Canada
- Holiday Inn Hotel Frankfurt – Airport, Germany
- Staybridge Suites Guadalajara Expo, Mexico
IHG Rewards points are actually on sale on Monday via the Daily Getaways for just .567 – .6 cents each if you pay with an American Express card. This means that 5,000 points costs around $30. Getting a hotel for $30 per night can be an incredible deal!
IHG Rewards also recently made a change to their PointBreaks terms that states “Due to the limited availability, each member may only book two PointBreaks® Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period.” This is actually a good change for most of us, as people were making one night reservations for virtually every day of the PointBreaks time frame at some of the “good” hotels in case they wanted to use them. This would snap up availability, and then those folks would often end up not using most of the nights they booked, but they wouldn’t usually go back into PointBreaks availability when they were eventually cancelled. You can still make two reservations per hotel, but you can’t book every night via one night reservations.
Good luck and let’s keep our fingers crossed for a good list on Tuesday!
