Preview 30+ IHG Properties on the Revamped PointBreaks List

Yesterday we learned some big news about IHG PointBreaks that might be a positive change, depending on the execution.

Yesterday I shared the news that hundreds of IHG properties will cost more points in the near future and that the top tier IHG properties will go from 60,000 to 70,000 points per night.

The increases are by as much as 10,000 points per night while…
