The new IHG PointBreaks list is live! You can book discounted hotels through February 28, 2019.

With IHG PointBreaks, you can book certain IHG hotels around the world at a discounted rate of either 5,000, 10,000, or 15,000 IHG points per night.  And you can also use the IHG Points & Cash trick to “buy” IHG points for as little as ~0.6 cents each.  So you’ll be able to book hotels on the list for between ~$30 and ~$90 per night.

But right now IHG is selling points at a discount, so you can buy them for even less (~.5 cents each) until November 30, 2018.  And if you combine that points sale with the IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card‘s 4th night free perk, you can book some of these hotels for less than $20 out of pocket (on 4-night stays)!  You can check out IHG’s other promotions and read more on how to buy cheap IHG points here.

You Can Stay at the Stunning InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort in Vietnam for Only 15,000 IHG Points Per Night

IHG PointBreaks Winter 2018 – 2019

There aren’t as many high-end hotels listed this quarter as there was last quarter.  But there are still some great deals to be had if they fit your travel plans.

I’m headed to Southeast Asia in February and have my eye on the InterContinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort in Vietnam.  Rooms here normally go for 35,000 IHG points or $200+ per night but are discounted to 15,000 points per night with this deal.  This deal would save me a LOT of points for a multi-night stay!

It’s best to book a PointBreaks stay as soon as possible if you think you’ll use it because the best hotels will sell out MUCH faster at this discounted rate.  You can always cancel later and get your IHG points back if you change your mind.

Just always remember do the math to make sure it’s a good deal before you book because some of these hotels have cheaper cash rates this time of year.  But even so, it’s harder to get a bad deal when you’re only paying 5,000 to 15,000 IHG points!

You’re allowed to book 2 stays per hotel and the stay length is not limited.

Here’s the full list!

Hotels you can book for 5,000 IHG points per night:

 

Hotels you can book for 10,000 IHG points per night:

Hotels you can book for 15,000 IHG points per night:

Earn More IHG Points

You can quickly rack up IHG points by opening a credit card! The current offers are:

  • IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card80,000 IHG points after spending $2,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening
  • IHG® Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card – 60,000 IHG points after spending $2,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening

The information for the IHG® Rewards Club Traveler Credit Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to IHG at a 1:1 ratio, but I don’t recommend this.  Because there are much better transfer partners that will give you exponentially more value for your points, like United Airlines and Hyatt.

If you end up booking any of this round’s PointBreaks hotels, share your travel plans in the comments!  You can view all the hotels and book discounted nights here.

IHG seems really determined to chase away its customer base, and you’re no doubt counting on those of us who actually remember how nicely the program used to work — long ago…. to just be silent, to drift away…. while you go on cutting & pasting the verbiage from old write-ups that are now just laughable. (like wow, just wow, a hotel room for only 5k! wow, by golly)

On a lighter note, the attitude of mms, loyaltylobby, pwac et. al. seems very much spelled out (literall) in the one IC property being widely touted…. the “Intercontinental PhuQu oc” Sing it Robin Williams….. goooood morrrrning… Vietnam

You chaps say that this review was not subject to the review of Chase or IHG. What balderdash.

If you had a shred of integrity left, if Daraius was still there, you call this for what it is…. complete garbage, unless you’re travelling to Vietnam, the final death of the once much valued point-breaks program.

Once again, this is totally underwhelming, other than the few IC’s included this time around. PointBreaks used to be such a great program. It’s gone down the drain. I’ll pass.

Again nothing for Chicago or NYC

For any diehard Beatles fans, the HIX at Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool is worth considering. That same building houses a Beatles museum, and the bus tours of Beatles locations in Liverpool start right outside.

Also, the recreated Cavern Club is just a few blocks away, and the Ferry ‘cross the Mersey boards nearby.
