NOW LIVE: IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks - 100 Hotels for only 5,000 points per night


We gave you the preview last week and are happy to tell you that the latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks hotel are now available for booking! This set has 100 hotels exactly that can now be booked for 5,000 points per award night for stays until January 31, 2018. Each Reward Night at these participating hotels will be only 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points during the above mentioned dates. Remember the PointBreaks rules are 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 soon as the list comes out 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 from October 30 to January 31, 2018

If you don't have enough points, even 0, you can buy points right now with a 100% bonus if you buy 5,000 or more points which works out to 0.5 cents per points. That means you can get each of the PointBreaks hotels for as little as US$25 per night if you buy 60,000 points. You can buy points with the bonus here until November 3, 2017.

Groupon expands mileage/point earning to six more airline & hotel programs


Back in May we detailed Groupon's first foray into the world of miles and points with their partnership with fellow Seattle based company Alaska Airlines. Now exactly a year after we met with Groupon to discuss details of them offering points and miles for purchases they have expanded their offerings with six more programs now available. In addition to Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan you can now earn points and miles on Groupon purchases with American AAdvantage, Choice Privileges, IHG Rewards Club, JetBlue TrueBlue, La Quinta Returns and United MileagePlus.

Here are all the earning details:

For American Airlines AAdvantage® program, Alaska Mileage Plan, JetBlue TrueBlue®, United MileagePlus®:
  1. Earn 5 miles or points per $1 spent on Groupon Local
  2. Earn 4 miles or points per $1 spent on Groupon Getaways
  3. Earn 3 miles or points per $1 spent on Groupon Goods
  4. New Groupon customers whose first purchase on Groupon is a Local offer that is $30.00 or greater before taxes will receive an additional 1,000 miles or points in addition to the 5 miles or points indicated above.
For Choice Privileges®, IHG® Rewards Club, La Quinta Returns:
  1. Earn 10 points per $1 spent on Groupon Local
  2. Earn 8 points per $1 spent on Groupon Getaways
  3. Earn 6 points per $1 spent on Groupon Goods
  4. New Groupon customers whose first purchase on Groupon is a Local offer that is $30.00 or greater before taxes will receive an additional 2,000 points in addition to the 10 points indicated above.
After signing into Groupon via the special Loyalty page you'll click on the program of your choice, input your reward program number and once you have you'll be presented with the following (will vary by program):


Make sure you input the promo code at check out, which you can confirm is applied when it states Miles post within 14 days:


Overall this is great news as there are lots of you who use Groupon to save some money on local deals and even travel purchases and now you can earn more miles for doing so! Will you start earning miles and  on your Groupon purchases? Now the question has come up about using an online shopping mall for Groupon purchases since you'll earn miles and be able to use discount codes. The mileage earned through online malls does vary (for example Alaska is 3 miles, so less than the 4 or 5 here potentially) but you can then add in coupon codes to save on the purchases. So the choice is yours but if you have never shopped via Groupon before make your first purchase directly via the Groupon loyalty page to take advantage of the first purchase bonus and then decide on future purchases what the better route is.
