IHG Rewards Club unveiled their latest PointBreaks list to their “insider” community on Wednesday, though the properties weren’t bookable till today (November 1, 2013). Given that some hotels sell out of PointBreaks availability quickly, it was nice to get a bit of a heads up.
Anyway, the hotels on the list are now bookable for stays through January 31, 2014.
At only 5,000 points per night, PointBreaks is probably the single best promotion consistently offered in the hotel industry. Given that IHG Rewards Club points can be indirectly purchased for 0.7 cents each, that’s the equivalent of paying $35 per night for a hotel room.
The list looks much better than last time, and even includes the InterContinental properties in:
- Kunming, China
- Shanghai Ruijin, China
- Maracaibo, Venezuela
- Johannesburg, South Africa
PointBreaks stays have the same cancellation policy as any other reward booking, meaning they can usually be canceled until shortly before arrival.
If you find any properties that interest you, you’re definitely best off locking them in sooner rather than later, as the better properties tend to get removed from the list pretty quickly.
