The new IHG Rewards PointBreaks list is now live (well, at least some properties are now live), so get to searching if you want to use the list for some summer family trips!  As you may already know, IHG PointsBreaks are hotels that are available for just 5,000 IHG points per night instead of the regular points prices that can go as high as 50,000 points per night.

The next round of hotels is available for booking from today, Tuesday May 26th, until July 31, 2015, for bookings and stays.  Below is the preview list from last week, but I’ll update that with the actual lists when they are updated in case there are any discrepancies.  In the meantime many properties such as the Intercontinental Nha Trang are available for booking now at just 5,000 points per night!

Intercontinental PointBreaks

Not all of the available properties are super fancy joints, but they are located in and around some areas that many families like to visit, so at just 5,000 points per night during the expensive travel months they might be worth a look.

Remember that if you already have some points in your account, you can also “buy” additional points at a cost of $0.007 each (for a total of about $35 per Point Breaks night) – check out this post by Million Mile Secrets for details on that method of obtaining IHG Rewards points.  You also can transfer the points in 1:1 from cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, though that generally isn’t the most lucrative way to use Ultimate Reward points.

The IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card is also a great way to build up points for future PointBreak lists.

    • Sandra, the “live” listed when I first linked to it this morning wasn’t yet updated with the new properties, though the new properties were largely live for booking. I bet the lists are quite similar now that it has been updated, but let me know if you are seeing something different!

    • I saw Holiday Inn : Carlsbad on the list Tuesday, but when I finally decided when I want to go and went to book it today, it is already removed from the list.

  1. wow – the intercontinental nha trang, crowne plaza hanoi and a lot of the pointbreak hotels are already gone. that was quick!

  2. When the hotels are gone within minutes one has to assume this is more a marketing gimmick than an intent to provide any value to the program.

    • Nick, I’m not sure any property was gone within minutes. I wasn’t online when the list went live and I was able to pull up mock bookings at several of the popular spots including the Intercontinental as shown in the past. That said, you are 100% correct that some properties do go very quickly which is why I tried to give as much lead time and notice before the list went live this morning.

  3. Strange.. the two Virginia locations I was looking to book is now back at 5000 points… it was at full price just two hours ago 🙂

    • Juno, sometimes it takes a bit for all the properties to show updated pricing. It’s not an “all on” or “all off” switch for sure. Hope you found something that works for you!
