IHG PointBreaks Sep 29-Nov 30 now bookable

IHG PointBreaks Sep 29-Nov 30 now bookable for hotel reward nights at 5,000 points per night. This is a great deal for hotel points since it is easy to buy IHG Rewards Club points quickly at the rate of $70 per 10,000 points through Points & Cash reward bookings that are canceled. IHG Rewards Club also has periodic opportunities throughout the year to buy points at even lower rates. This means PointBreaks hotel nights are typically valued as $35 hotel nights. Some of the hotels on the PointBreaks list are likely over $200 per night on some dates, although most hotels tend to fall in the $90 to $130 per night range.

Loyalty Traveler – PointBreaks and the IHG points trick in pictures

Personally, I do not find this list of hotels too useful for my travels. I might be able to use the Interstate 5 hotel in Westley when visiting a friend in Modesto or perhaps Bakersfield if I drive to Las Vegas in the next couple of months.

Just a reminder that IHG Rewards Club added a PointBreaks terms & conditions restriction a couple months ago limiting members to only two PointBreaks award stays per hotel during a specific promotion period.

IHG® Rewards Club PointBreaks is a Reward Nights special offer. PointBreaks are Reward Nights priced at 5,000 points at selected hotels for a limited period of time, instead of the standard redemption rate. IHG® Rewards Club PointBreaks Reward Nights are based on availability and PointBreaks locations may be added or deleted at any time. Due to the limited availability, each member may only book two PointBreaks Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period. The PointBreaks special offer may be restricted, suspended, modified, or substituted at any time without notice. Reward Nights booked through PointBreaks may not be sold or used for commercial gains. Doing so is a program violation and may result in the freezing of your account, the forfeiture of all point transfers, rewards, vouchers, or merchandise issued pursuant to point redemptions and any accrued points or miles in your account, as well as cancellation of the account and your future participation in the Program. All other Reward Nights terms and conditions apply.

IHG Rewards Club T&C

One strategy I may use is to book a paid night followed by a PointBreaks night at the Holiday Inn Denver for a qualifying stay for the current IHG Rewards Club Into the Nights promotion. SPG’s current promotion invalidates a paid night followed by an award night on consecutive nights at the same hotel. The entire stay will count as an SPG award stay. As far as I know, IHG Rewards Club paid night still counts even if combined with an award night for the same hotel stay. That is a point I hope to test on a Holiday Inn stay in November. Loyalty Traveler My IHG Rewards Club Into the Nights offer.

  1. When I called IHG, the agent said that a paid night followed by a reward night would not count towards any promotions. Since I have a great Into the Night offer for a free night after two stays, and I really need this to count for one of those stays, my solution was to book the paid night in my name and the reward night in my husband’s name, as we will be traveling together. When you belong to as many hotel programs as we all do, it’s almost impossible to keep track of all the ever-changing rules.

  2. @PSL – good to know. I’ll research the issue further to see if anyone has anecdotal evidence for the situation. I might do the same thing you did by booking the award night in my wife’s name.
