ihg-share-forever-promotionIHG Point Breaks are one of the best uses of points.  Every 2-3 months, IHG releases about 150 hotels that are bookable for only 5000 points a night.

Note that these hotels, especially the nicer hotels, sell out FAST!  IHG is one of the hotel chains that only releases a certain number of rooms as rewards nights, and once those are gone, then not only can you not get it for the 5000 points – you can’t reserve it at ALL using points on that night

(SEE ALSO: 50+ hotels have disappeared from the IHG Point Breaks list!)

(SEE ALSO: IHG / Priority Club October PointBreaks now live – some hotels already sold out!)

IHG Category changes that just happened

Remember that IHG announced that several of their hotels changed category as of the start of May.  It will be interesting to see if any of those hotels appear on the Point Breaks list as a sort of “bone” to travelers upset with the increased point requirements.

Sneak peek of IHG Point Breaks hotels

I see that there’s a Candlewood Suites on the list – unfortunately based on my experience, the only rooms they book for awards that they release only (fit 2 people – so it’s not really feasible for a large family such as mine.

I will once again be making a map of the IHG Point Breaks locations – look for that on May 26th (next Tuesday) once the full list goes live. In the meantime, you can still book the existing Point Breaks locations until May 31st.
