Now live - Latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks Offers (Valid for stays until July 31)


Despite the recent change in the terms and conditions of PointsBreaks, it is still one of the best redemptions in the hotel loyalty program world.  The new rules state 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). What this means is that if you want to book a Pointbreaks offer at a hotel you can only have two reservations. No longer will you be able to grab 3, 5 or more reservations (one reservation per night) as some people did to make sure they got the nights at the low award price, plan a trip for some of those nights and then cancel the rest. This change is both good and bad. Good in that more members should be able to grab award nights at the lower levels but bad if you truly want to plan 3 or more trips at one location and have no plans on 'working' the system by cancelling some of those nights. 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.
The latest set for stays until July 31st, are now available for booking via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.

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 Priority 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 Point Breaks. 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 Point Breaks rate. These offers are now bookable via the primary PointsBreaks page or via the individual hotel links below.
