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

IHG has unveiled its latest PointBreaks promotion. The promotion is valid for stays through November 30, 2018. With the promotion, you can book stays starting at 5,000 points per night. Remember that the number of nights available is limited, so it is best to make your bookings early.

IHG Rewards PointBreaks Promotion

Key Terms

  • Promotion is valid for stays through November 30, 2018
  • There are three tiers of hotels priced at 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 points per night
  • You can only make two bookings per property using the PointBreaks promotion
  • Each booking can be for as many nights as you like

Good Options On Premium Properties

Historically IHG has been less than generous with its premium properties in the PointBreaks promotion, with no participating Intercontinental properties if any, the full list of participating properties tended to be on the lower scale of things. Since the IHG PointBreaks revamp earlier this year, IHG has been more generous, and this month is no exception. This time around, you can book the following Intercontinental properties:

15,000 Points Per Night

  • Intercontinental Hanoi Landmark72
  • Intercontinental Le Vendome Beirut
  • Intercontinental Kiev
  • Intercontinental Ljubljana
  • Intercontinental Miramar Panama
  • Intercontinental Cartagena de Indias
  • Intercontinental Sao Paulo

10,000 Points Per Night

  • Intercontinental Mendoza – Argentina
  • Intercontinental San Salvador – Metrocentro Mall
  • Intercontinental Bucharest

Our Take

This month there are some nice properties on offer. A night at an Intercontinental property for 15,000 or 10,000 points is a steal. If your travel plans are concrete and dovetail with the promotion, then book now, before the best properties get snapped up.

  • Finally! Even though the days of 5000 points across the board are gone, it’s really nice to see some more upscale CP and IC branded properties return to the list… and in some actually-desirable destinations to boot.

  • Yay. It’s time to book reservations for our Thanksgiving stays.

  • This time, even though the properties are higher quality in some cases, it doesn’t work out for any of my plans. Oh well. Them’s the (point)breaks.

  • There are a couple of interesting 10k and 15k options, but unfortunately I’ve just cleared out my account with a a few nights in a 15k standard rate hotel.

    There is still some value around at the 15k level outside of pointsbreaks.

  • The new Points Breaks rules are worse than before, but I hope they keep making nice hotels available!

  • Happy to have accumulated so many IHG for future Internation trips. I can always use these point break properties when traveling from New York to Florida each winter. Thank you Award Wallet for keeping us up to date on all the latest and greatest news.

  • I have been disappointed in the Point Break choices since IHG went to a 5,000, 10,000, and 15,000 format. Last year I was able to get some good choices for 5,000 points.

  • Intercons for 10/15K is all well and good but these still aren’t 50-60K hotels at regular price, they are 20-30K hotels…

    • Exactly. In places where very decent alternatives can be had for under $100.

    • Uh, so you’re saying a 50% discount isn’t worthwhile? I’ve stayed at some 20-30k IC, and they’ve been every bit as nice as those costing 60-70k. The award cost is tied to the cash ($$) booking rate, not the quality of the property.

      • It depends on the starting price that they are discounting.

        If it is in a place with high cash rates across the board, then yes.

        If it is a 30k property for 15k, when independent 4-stars in the same area are going for $90, that is marginal value at best.

        • Obviously; and different perspectives are at play here. Personally, if I’m not spending points, I’d like to be earning points, so I’m *generally* looking for the best deal at a chain hotel. And always 5 of 4 stars. Regardless, even if we’re talking about major cities and/or desirable destinations for tourists, in the US or abroad, I can’t think of the last time I found a $90 hotel room I actually wanted to stay in… just saying.

          • The_Bouncer says:

            I agree that there are different perspectives. I am perfectly happy with $90 hotels in many places and don’t think I have ever spent more than 20k points on any room.

        • Funny, I don’t think I ever spent less than 25k for a room/night… and that was at an IC.

  • Nice to see so many intercontinentals!

  • Nice to seem a few half decent locations at 15k per night.

  • Not bad especially since you can buy IHG points at 0.5cents each often.

  • A pity that 2 of my Hotel stays in December have come on now . i wonder if they do consecutive repeats ?

  • Intercontinental Ljubljana sounds good to me

  • Laura Denis says:

    IHG Points breaks are the best!! Totally worth the annual fee on this card considering you also get a free night every year.
