IHG Rewards Club’s PointBreaks is traditionally one of the best promotions in the hotel industry. Through this promotion, select hotels are available for just 5,000 points per night. I value IHG points at ~0.5 cents each, so to me that’s the equivalent of booking a hotel stay for ~$25 per night.

Also keep in mind that if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card you get a 10% refund on award redemptions, up to 100,000 points back each year. That means for the first million points you redeem each year you get a 10% discount, so you’d be paying an effective 4,500 points for each PointBreaks night.

IHG’s newest round of PointBreaks hotels is now bookable at the below links (we shared the list on Friday before it became bookable), valid for bookings and stays between January 30 and April 30, 2017. There are 125+ hotels participating in this round of PointBreaks, and as of now they’re actually bookable.

Keep in mind that each member can only book two PointBreaks reward night reservations per hotel per promotion period. Those stays can be for as long as you’d like, but you are limited to two reservations.

Bottom line

5,000 points per night for a hotel stay is a ridiculously good deal, so if you happen to have travel plans that take you to one of the above cities, I’d seriously consider taking advantage of this promotion. As usual, the you can get an even better value if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, as you get a refund of 500 points per night on these bookings.

If any of these hotels interest you I’d recommend booking sooner rather than later, as availability for the better properties usually disappears pretty quickly. You can always cancel the stay after booking, assuming you’re not within the cancellation deadline.

Do you plan on booking any hotels on the new PointBreaks list?

  1. I just joined IHG for this promotion, and was waiting for the PointBreak to go live – then immediately purchased points for it. Now the hotel of my choice is bookable, but my points won’t be posted for another 24 to 48 hours!! I called customer service and they said nothing can be done. Has anybody been able to “push” their points to be posted as soon as they’re purchased/earned??

  2. Rookie Newbie, you’re out of luck but live and learn – you’ll be better prepared next time. Similar thing happened to me when I first joined. :-/

    By the time your points post, there’s unlikely to be much worthwhile left. Indigo Krakow went in what must have been a matter of seconds.

  3. Hi I was wondering if anyone knew when the next set would be released for booking after April 30th! Thanks so much
