The IHG PointBreaks promotion has been extended, please see more details here.

The IHG PointBreaks quarterly promotion is back, for stays between October 30, 2017, and January 31, 2018. Stays at PointBreaks properties will set you back 5,000 points per night, which can be a huge saving on the more expensive properties which could set you back more than 50,000 points per night. You will have to book quickly since availability at the best properties tends to get snapped up pretty quickly.

Maximizing the Promotion and Earning IHG Points

You can maximize your earnings and the value of this promotion by using the IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card. Cardholders receive an automatic 10% rebate on points redemptions (up to 100k/year), which means you will end up with a net cost of 4,500 points per night. Currently, the card has 60,000-point signup bonus; enough for 12 nights using the PointBreaks promotion.

The card comes with complimentary Platinum Elite status with IHG Rewards Club, as well as a host of other benefits. Even without the promotion, IHG does have some excellent sweet spots for award redemptions that are well worth having a look at.

Our Take

The IHG PointBreaks is one of the most valuable promotions out there; while it does not include properties that would be part of an aspirational redemption, it does, however, include properties that are a fantastic value. This quarter’s promo is a little limited in scope, especially outside the US. Which is not surprising since the period does cover one of the main holiday seasons across the world. One thing to remember is that the number of rooms at each hotel during the promotion is limited, and the best ones get snapped up pretty quickly. So, if you see something you like, then hurry and book ASAP.
