Book Now: New IHG PointBreaks List

Filed Under: Great Deals, Hotel Deals

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 January 31, 2020. 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.

Buy IHG Points For 0.5 Cents Each

If you could benefit from the PointBreaks promotion but don’t have any IHG points, the good news is that IHG is selling points with a 100% bonus, for 0.5 cents each at the moment.

You can learn everything about this promotion in this post.

IHG’s New PointBreaks List

I’d say the new PointBreaks list is pretty decent, though not quite as good as the last one. First let me note that the following four InterContinental hotels are on the list, since these are often the most popular:

  • The InterContinental Cartagena De Indias is bookable for 15,000 points per night
  • The InterContinental Costa Rica at Multiplaza Mall is bookable for 15,000 points per night
  • The InterContinental Nairobi is bookable for 15,000 points per night
  • The InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers is bookable for 15,000 points per night

The InterContinental Johannesburg is on the current PointBreaks list

There are lots of other great options on the list, though, like the Crowne Plaza Auckland, Crowne Plaza Geneva, etc.

Below is the full list of IHG hotels on the list.

Happy booking!

Comments
  1. @Ricky- that’s a great use of points. Stayed there twice and loved it each time.

    @Lucky- thanks for the list. We booked 4 nights at the CP Playhouse Cleveland for 45K (4th night free w/cc). Husband is having another heart procedure at the Cleveland Clinic so this is an excellent use of points for us.

  2. @ Ben — Thanks! You just saved the FCQ about $400 worth of Hyatt points! Yes, I mean Hyatt points since the 8 nights of PB stays at 7,500 points per night are in lieu of Hyatt stays at 5,000 points per night. Now he can buy me something nice…

  3. Kimpton Overland Atlanta Airport is a good deal at 15K. It’s usually $250 before taxes during the week.

  4. Many Sydney properties over the New Year. Holiday Inn Potts Point over the NYE for 15,000 points each night with open availability.

  5. Meh. We stayed at the Hiroshima Crowne Plaza in 2017 and, while the location is great, the hotel is not so great. Our room was obviously a smoker at one point in its lifecycle, there were cigarette burns on the desk, the furniture was beyond well worn, the breakfast was alright but not really very good. We were on a club floor so had access to the lounge, which was nice with great service, but you come to expect good service in Japan. Overall, I would avoid this one if I go back to Hiroshima. As for the rest of them, if I am going to the trouble of dragging my tired butt all the way around the world, I want a better hotel experience than I am accustomed to with IHG. I burned the last of my IHG points this winter on an overnight at EWR while positioning us for SQ21/22. Burned 15 K points on a $125 room. I guess…
