IHG has just released their new PointBreaks list, so if you might be interested in making a booking, check out the list now.

IHG’s revamped PointBreaks promotion

Last year IHG revamped their PointBreaks promotion. This is a promotion they’ve been offering on a quarterly basis for years, which allows you to book select hotels for just 5,000 points per night. Given that I value IHG points at ~0.5 cents each, that’s the equivalent of paying just ~$25 per night for a hotel room, which is a steal.

The issue is that the quality of the hotels on the lists had been gradually decreasing over the years, to the point that many of us didn’t even bother trying with the promotion anymore. It was great if you happened to be traveling to somewhere that had a PointBreaks hotel, but otherwise just wasn’t worth going out of your way for.

So IHG changed up their PointBreaks promotion, and now charges 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 points per night through PointBreaks. IHG promised that they’d offer more and better hotels than in the past, though it’s questionable if that has actually happened.

The next PointBreaks list has just gone live, and is valid for stays through August 31, 2019. The better hotels tend to sell out pretty quickly (as there are capacity constraints), so you’ll want to book sooner rather than later.

You can also use Cash & Points

Now that some PointBreaks hotels cost 10,000 and 15,000 points per night, you can redeem part points and part cash for these bookings, to lower the price by 5,000 to 10,000 points per night.

The price varies by property, but typically you can expect to pay about $50 to lower the cost by 5,000 points, and to pay $80 to lower the cost by 10,000 points. Personally, I don’t think this represents a very good deal.

Get a fourth night free with the IHG Premier Card

While this is a great promotion, there’s potentially a way to get even more value. Specifically, if you have the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card then you get the fourth night free on award redemptions, including on PointBreaks bookings.

IHG’s new PointBreaks list

Below is IHG’s full PointBreaks list, though let me first note the four InterContinental hotels on the list, since these are often the most popular:


The InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is on the new list

  1. Meh at best. I thought that the whole idea of introducing higher tiers was to include aspirational properties again. Again IHG has failed at this.

  2. Pointsbreak + 4th night free + 10% points refund with both Chase IHG credit cards offers pretty decent value.
    For example, 4 nights at the holiday inn zurichsee in Switzerland in the summer only cost 27k points.
