Link:  IHG Rewards PointsBreak List

IHG Rewards released their new PointsBreak list for hotels.  Hotels on the PointsBreak list cost only 5,000 points for a night (the regular rate is 10,000 to 50,000 points)!

5,000 Points
5,000 Points or $35 for a Hotel Room!

IHG hotels include Candlewood SuitesCrowne Plaza,  Holiday InnHoliday Inn Express,Hotel IndigoIntercontinental Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites brand hotels.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any hotels which fit in with my travel plans, but it is  a terrific deal if you can find a hotel on the PointsBreak list!

You can get IHG Rewards points by:

Usually, transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to IHG Rewards is not the best value, but it certainly could make sense for hotels on the PointsBreak list.  If you’re not averse to using the cash and points trick, you can use the cash and points trick to buy IHG Rewards points and then get a statement reimbursement of 1 cent per Ultimate Rewards points.  This is a better value than redeeming Ultimate Rewards points directly for IHG Rewards points.

Don’t count on all the hotels on the PointsBreak list being available through October 31 2013, because hotels may sell out and can be removed from the list at any time.

It doesn’t hurt to make a booking using points, because you can usually cancel them without a penalty (but read the cancellation policy before booking).

PS:  I’m on vacation until September 10, 2013, so won’t be able to get to the comments quickly.

Keith – If their is availability, you can book 4 nights.

Paula – Not that I know about, but you can sign-up for blog updates which should mention when a new list is out.

I would like to book four nights (consecutive) at a PointsBreak hotel…can I do that with this trick? I transferred in 5k from UR but it won’t let me do a pay option. Am I stuck since I need 5k miles to see the option and the hotel costs that much? What can I do?

Is the Oct 31 only a booking deadline, or is it also a stay deadline? i.e. can I book a points break on Oct 31 to stay on December 1?

@PY – It is the same thing.

@Journey 4 Happy – It is the stay deadline.

Is the “Using Cash & Points to buy points for 0.7 cents per point.” still working? I only get the option to “Book This Room” not the “Reserve” with the changeover from Priority Club to IHG.

I can’t really think of a scenario where using Chase points is a better deal. It’d be more beneficial to just get cash back (5,000 points for $50) and then buy the points with a credit card and earn the 70 UR points and keep the extra $15…
