Preview Of The IHG Summer 2017 PointBreaks List

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. Since IHG Rewards Club points can be purchased for as little as ~0.6 cents per point, that’s like booking stays at certain hotels for an incredible $30 per night.

I’ve just been informed that IHG Rewards Club will be releasing the full list of new PointBreaks hotels tomorrow (Friday, April 21) at 12PM EST. At that point the new PointBreaks list will be visible here (the link doesn’t show the updated list yet, but rather still shows the first quarter list) which will be valid for bookings and stays between April 24 and July 31, 2017 (though the better hotels tend to sell out pretty quickly).

They’ve provided a sampling of some of the roughly 100 hotels that will be on the list, including the following:

Crowne-Plaza-Vilnius
The Crowne Plaza Vilnius will be on the next PointBreaks list

That’s not a terribly inspiring list so far, and frankly I don’t expect it will be, given that this is for travel over the peak summer period. Still, at only 5,000 points per night, these hotel stays really are a steal.

Keep in mind that if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card, you get a 10% refund on points redemptions, for a refund of up to 100,000 points per year. That lowers the cost per award night for those with the card to 4,500 points, which is even better.

Arguably there are even better benefits to the card, including Platinum status for as long as you have the card, plus an annual free night certificate, valid at any IHG property in the world.

I’ll be sure to share the full list tomorrow.

  1. If you’re an alpha male like me, Vilnius is a hidden gem..but of course I won’t advertise it

  2. That’s so funny – heading with the fam to Lithuania for 3 days before a business trip to Finland – this will come perfectly handy!

  3. @lucky I saw your instagram post at the fogo island inn, will you please do an in-depth review??

  4. Wow this is travel hacking porn right now. Love it, lol. I just signed up for 3 new cards though, but now I realize I need to focus more on hotel stays as well as airline miles.

  5. Lucky – since I already have a cash booking (flex) with CP Vilnius, will I be able to modify that reservation to points instead? Cancel and rebook sounds risky, I might end up with nothing if others are piling in with PB bookings.

  6. @ European Son — You sure can. Just make the PointBreaks booking first and then cancel your flexible booking, assuming it’s outside the cancelation deadline.

  7. It’s 1:08 PM now. The list on the site is still the old list. I guess they are late posting the list?
