The new IHG PointBreaks list will be released tomorrow, April 21, 2017, at 12:00 pm Eastern Time!

Every 3 months, IHG runs a promotion called PointBreaks, where they offer certain hotels worldwide for just 5,000 IHG points per night.  And you’ll be able to book this new list on April 24, 2017 (Monday).

Here’s a sneak peek at the list of upcoming PointBreaks hotels!

IHG PointBreaks April Through July 2017

Link:   IHG PointBreaks (New List Not Bookable Until April 24, 2017)

With IHG PointBreaks, you can book an award stay at select IHG hotels for only 5,000 IHG points per night.  Tomorrow, IHG will release the full list of participating hotels.  But for now, we have a preview of what to expect!

You’ll be able to book these hotels for stays between April 24, 2017, and July 31, 2017.  Some upcoming IHG PointBreaks hotels are:

I’m glad to see some fun locations on this preview list, like Bali, Brisbane, and Kuala Lumpur!  Because it gives folks a cheap place to crash while they explore an interesting destination.

However, many of those hotels don’t cost very much to begin with, so you won’t get an outstanding value for your IHG points like you usually will with IHG PointBreaks.  For example, the Holiday Inn Express Baruna Bali sells rooms for ~$50 per night, giving you a value of 1 cent per point ($50 per night / 5,000 IHG points).

You Might Want to Save Your IHG Points for a More Valuable Redemption and Just Use Cash – the Holiday Inn Express Baruna Bali Is Already Really Cheap!

Of this list, you’ll get the most value from the Staybridge Suites St. Louis – Westport, which prices at $160+ per night, for a value of 3 cents per point ($160 per night / 5,000 IHG points).

This deal goes live on Monday, April 24, 2017, so you have the weekend to plan!  Remember to check tomorrow’s list for any hotels that you could use during your travels.  Just keep in mind the best hotels sell out quickly, so book your hotels early.

Want More IHG Points?

IHG usually sells points for between 1.15 and 1.35 cents each.  So if you don’t have 5,000 IHG points, you could BUY 5,000 IHG points and book a PointBreaks room for ~$60.  But by using this IHG Points & Cash trick, you can effectively purchase these rooms for just ~$30 per night.

Bottom Line

The new IHG PointBreaks list will be released tomorrow, April 21, 2017, at 12:00 pm Eastern Time.  You’ll be able to book certain IHG hotels for just 5,000 IHG points per night.  Stay dates are April 24, 2017, to July 31, 2017.

Remember, the best hotels sell out fast, so book quickly to make sure you get the hotels you want!

Holiday Inn Chiang Mai , Intercontinental Bangkok

Is there anything special you need to do? I have been trying since 6AM and nothing shows up as a special. There is a rate for 5k point and $70, but that is not it is it?

No problems! It just went through! I just got my last two nights in a hotel for (relatively) free after spending three weeks hiking across France. I’ll need it!

What a colossal zero that list is. Worst ever I’ve seen from IHG.

The current list I’m seeing does not include any of these hotels; I assume it’s still the old list?

Also.. when on Monday do these become bookable? midnight? noon? Thanks

So the list has not come out yet and IHG told me on the phone it wont be out until April 30th
