IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks - Complete list of hotels that will be available as May 26

If you follow us on Twitter you would have seen late last night that we retweeted the new IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks list directly from IHG and now that we are back on the ground we can post it here.  The participating hotels in this set of offers will be bookable as of May 26 for stays May 26 - Jul 31, 15 (subject to availability).

Each Reward Night at these participating hotels will be only 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points during the above mentioned dates. Remember the new PointBreaks rules that a member can only book up to 2 reward reservations per hotel participating in the individual offer (ie 2 at Pointbreaks hotels and 2 at Last Minute Reward Night hotels).  My tip to get around this would be to book 2 reservations with one IHG Rewards Club account and then have your spouse book 2 more etc. Of course this is dependent on both accounts having enough points to redeem for these awards. Also be sure to book these ASAP as once the allotted nights are booked at certain locations those hotels will fall off the list.

Why are IHG Rewards Club Point Breaks such a great deal? Because they offer reward nights at participating IHG hotels Worldwide for only 5,000 Rewards Club points. For those of you not to familiar with IHG Rewards Club , normal redemption rates for Rewards Club reward nights run from as low as 10,000 points for some Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations to 50,000 points for ultra-luxurious InterContinental locations and even these locations can participate in PointBreaks. So as you can see you can receive a discount of 50 to 88% off the regular redemption rates. You may be thinking that the high end hotels won't participate but they do depending on the time of year! Please note that like most loyalty promotions these offers are capacity controlled so I advise to book sooner than later to ensure you get the PointBreaks rate. These offers will be bookable via the primary PointsBreaks page as of May 26 (list pulled from the IHG blog)

FFB10 - The FrequentFlyerBonuses.com 10th Anniversary Celebration - Contest #2: Win 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport Points!

FFb 10th Anniversary #FFB10

CONTEST #2 DETAILS

Just over 10 years ago, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com launched with little to no fan-fare. It was an experiment of sorts and a logical expansion of the FFB Group’s first website RewardsCanada.ca.

One of the most popular sections of Rewards Canada was our listing of Bonus Offers. Surprisingly, we started to notice large traffic spikes from outside of the country even though we didn’t list offers available to non-Canadians.

And thus the idea to develop a stand-alone site dedicated to bonus offers from frequent travel programs worldwide was born!

Fast-forward to 2015 and FFB is bigger than ever providing unparalleled coverage of the bonus and promotional offers of the world’s leading frequent travel programs. Most of that success can be attributed to our dedicated fans and readers.

So to help celebrate our 10th anniversary we will be offering our dedicated users a chance to win fantastic prizes as well as exclusive partner promotions all year long!!

Be sure to bookmark our main FFB10 Page and check it frequently for contests and partner promotions. Also follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social media channels for the latest updates with the hashtag #FFB10.

The pages on FFB you should always keep an eye on!

As many of you can attest, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com is a huge website in terms of the number of pages we have on the site to ensure proper coverage of all types of promotions from over 160 Airline, Hotel, Car Rental and other programs. Certain pages are summaries or compilations of offers that are posted to each of the individual program bonus pages and it is these summary pages that you should always keep an eye on. For those of you who are new to the FFB world or even if you have followed us for years but forgot where these pages were or have never heard of them, here they are. I hope they help you like they have me and many other FFB users in ensuring that you earn more Miles more Points more Rewards (the unofficial FFB motto!)

FFB Route Bonus Listing (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/routebonus.html)
A complete list of all the airline bonus offers for flights/routes that are on FFB. Nowhere else on the Internet will you get a more up to date and near-complete listing of flight bonuses. On any given day you will find anywhere from 300 to 700+ offers on the page. 




FFB Car Rental Bonus Offer Listing (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/carbonus.html)
Much like the route bonus above, this table lists all the car rental bonuses we have posted onto FFB for the various airline, hotel and car rental programs. It's sorted by Car Rental company first and then by airline. Much like the route bonus listing this page should be visited before you are planning any car rental bookings to ensure you  are not missing out any bonuses.





FFB Elite Status Bonus Mile and Point Offers (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/statusoffers.html)
Looking for status matches or flight, hotel and other offers that award status miles or points? That's what this FFB page for. Once again it pulls offers from across the entire FFB site into one page that offer some sort of Elite Status Bonus.





FFB Buy, Gift, Transfer Mile and Point Bonus Opportunities (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/buymilesoffers.html)
The number of buy, gift and transfer bonus offers has skyrocketed in the last three or so years as the programs fully discovered the value of selling their loyalty currencies. On this page I try to capture all these offers and update it as each new one gets added to FFB.




FFB Discounted Mile and Point Redemption Offers (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/discounted-rewards.html)
What's better than redeeming your miles for a flight? Getting a discount on that redemption! This page covers any discounted rewards that we list on FFB, I know that there are many more than what is currently on the page but my plans are to provide more coverage to discounted rewards in 2013 so this page should expand greatly as the weeks go by.



FFB Free Mile and Point  Offers (http://www.frequentflyerbonuses.com/freemiles.html)
Free miles are the best. Granted you usually can't get very many miles or points that come at no cost (credit cards excluded) but they are very worthwhile nonetheless. Who knows when that 500 free miles offer will get you over the hump to an award flight or just happen to keep your account active when it may be expiring due to lack of activity!
