PointBreaks is one of the most lucrative promotions in the hotel industry. IHG Rewards Club usually offers the promotion every few months, whereby select hotels are available for just 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.
Anyway, I’ve just been informed that a new PointBreaks list will be posted on Monday, January 27 for bookings and stays from January 27 through March 31, 2014 (subject to availability).
Here is a sampling of the 140 properties that will be featured:
- Hotel Indigo University Area, Athens, GA
- Holiday Inn Johannesburg, South Africa – Sandton-Rivonia Road
- Holiday Inn Sao Luis, Brazil
- Holiday Inn Express Shanghai, China – Shanghai Jinsha
- Holiday Inn Berlin, Germany – Berlin City East-Landsberger
- InterContinental Phnom Penh, Cambodia
I’ll certainly post again once the list goes “live.” Some of the most popular properties tend to sell out pretty quickly, so it pays to be ready to book once the promotion becomes available. Some of the less popular hotels stay on the list until the expiration date, while some sell out within a day or so. Since most IHG Rewards Club reward bookings are refundable, I generally recommend booking any stays you think you may make, as you can always cancel them later.
For context, the last PointBreaks list was published on November 1, 2013.
