The new IHG PointBreaks preview list is now out for your viewing pleasure. The list is scheduled to go live for bookings on Monday, October 30, 2017, and will include travel from October 30, 2017 – January 31, 2018. This means you could even score a 5,000 points per night hotel over Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years!
With the IHG PointBreaks list, you can book hotels for just 5,000 IHG points per night instead of the usual 20,000 – 35,000+ points per night that many of these properties typically sell for outside of the PointBreaks dates. The PointBreaks list is always a crap-shoot in terms of whether there will be anything on there that meets your needs, but since we are talking about hotel rooms that you can book for just 5,000 points per night, sometimes it is worth it to amend your travel plans slightly to make one of these hotels work.
To give you an idea of what is possible with this new list, for just 5,000 points per night you can stay a little outside San Diego at the Holiday Inn Express Mira Mesa – San Diego, enjoy Maine at the Candlewood Suites Portland – Scarborough, begin a trip through Colorado with a night at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Denver Tech Center – Centennial, spend a night at the Crowne Plaza Hickory in North Carolina, see some music in Nashville while staying at the Candlewood Suites Nashville – Metro Center, or earn some passport stamps while staying at the Crowne Plaza Belfast or the Crowne Plaza Panama.
As always you can make up to two reservations per PointBreaks hotel and the best offerings typically sell-out of PointBreaks rooms very quickly. There is no set time that the list goes live, so just be ready beginning on Monday morning and I’ll do my best to post and tweet as soon as I notice the 5,000 point bookings available. This Flyertalk thread is also very good at alerting when the PointBreaks are live.
