IHG sent out a teaser today of the next set of IHG Rewards Club Pointsbreaks
. The full list of over 100 hotels will be revealed tomorrow. We typically see between 4 to 6 hotels in Canada but our fingers are crossed there will be more this time! The
actual booking of the hotels at these rates will open on Monday January
30th for stays between that day and April 30, 2017.
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
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 Point Breaks. 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 as of Jan 30.
