IHG PointBreaks Now Live: Book Hotels for 5,000 Points per Night

If you plan to book one of the 100+ hotels included in the newest IHG PointBreaks promotion, the deal is now live.  And you can book discounted hotel stays through April 30, 2017.

With IHG PointBreaks, participating hotels cost just 5,000 IHG points per night.  That’s an excellent deal, because IHG hotels normally cost 10,000 to 60,000 IHG points for an award night.

The best hotels sell out very quickly.  Even if you don’t have firm travel plans, it doesn’t hurt to book now if there’s a location you’re interested in.  Most IHG hotels will allow you to cancel an award reservation up to ~1 day before arrival, and they’ll refund your points.

I Found My New Best Friend Traveling to London: Part 1 – Introduction and Planning

Emily:   I love to travel, and my mom does, too!

When I was growing up in Ohio, we could only afford road trips to local amusement parks.  But collecting miles and points has opened a world of travel neither of us thought possible!

She and I decided to go to London and Paris for a mother-daughter getaway.  We flew Business Class and stayed in 5-star hotels.  I paid for this trip for a fraction of the retail cost by using airline miles and hotel points.

I’ve never traveled so long with my mom before, and at the end of the trip, I felt like I had a new best friend!  Without the miles & points hobby, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to experience the joy of traveling with my mom.
