Every 3 months, IHG runs a promotion called PointBreaks, where they reduce the price of an award night at certain hotels worldwide to 5,000 IHG points.

But I’ve got a sneak peek for you!

With IHG PointBreaks, you can book your award stay at select IHG hotels for only 5,000 IHG points per night.  On July 28, 2017, 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 starting July 31, 2017, for stays between July 31, 2017, and October 31, 2017.

Here’s a preview of hotels to expect:

There are some interesting hotels on this list, like the Crowne Plaza Johannesburg – The Rosebank, which normally costs 20,000 IHG points per night.

Or consider the Holiday Inn Express Williamsburg Busch Gardens Area, which would be excellent for a summer family trip!

Link:   My Review of the Chase IHG Card

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 just BUY 5,000 IHG points and book a PointBreaks room for ~$60.  But by using the IHG Points & Cash trick, you can effectively purchase these rooms for just ~$30 per night.

The Chase IHG card is also offering an amazing sign-up bonus right now.  You can earn 80,000 IHG points after spending $1,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening!

It’s a card I keep in my wallet year after year, because it comes with a free night each cardmember anniversary that can be worth hundreds of dollars!

If you have the Chase IHG card, you’ll get a 10% rebate on redeemed points, up to a maximum rebate of 100,000 IHG points per year.  So folks with the card will effectively pay 4,500 IHG points per night for a PointBreaks hotel (5,000 IHG points – 500 point rebate).

And don’t forget, you can transfer the Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn with cards like the Chase Ink Business Preferred, Chase Sapphire Preferred, and Chase Sapphire Reserve to IHG at a 1:1 ratio.  While I don’t normally recommend doing this, you might be able to get lots of value from your points when booking a PointBreaks hotel.

Bottom Line

The new IHG PointBreaks list will be released July 28, 2017, at 12:00 pm Eastern Time.  You’ll be able to book participating IHG hotels for just 5,000 IHG points per night starting July 31, 2017,  for stays between July 31, 2017, and October 31, 2017.

For now, they’ve released a sneak peek of the hotels on the list, including the Holiday Inn Express Williamsburg Busch Gardens Area and Crowne Plaza Johannesburg – The Rosebank.

Remember, the best hotels sell out fast, so set a reminder on Monday to make sure you get the hotels you want!

The bracketed info after Link on th first line should probably be 28th not 31st since list can be viewed today after noon EST just that hotels can’t be booked yet right?

No status for Hyatt. Hyatt Regency at Rosebank Johannesburg for 8 k points or Crowne plaza Johannesburg at Rosebank for 5 k points?
Is the Crowne plaza within a couple of blocks from Rosebank mall?
