IHG has just released a preview of it’s latest PointBreaks list, which will go live on Tuesday, May 27. For just 5,000 points per night members can book participating hotels for stays through July 31, 2014. Some of the hotels on the list include the following:

  • Crowne Plaza Hotel Bangkok- Lumpini Park, Thailand
  • Crowne Plaza Johannesburg-The Rosebank, South Africa
  • Hotel Indigo San Jose Forum, Costa Rica
  • Holiday Inn Hotel Laval- Montreal, Canada
  • Holiday Inn Hotel Frankfurt – Airport, Germany
  • Staybridge Suites Guadalajara Expo, Mexico

The Crowne Plaza Bangkok and Johannesburg are both great properties and a great bargain at 5,000 points per night. Be sure to check the full list once it becomes available on Tuesday.

Availability is limited, though now that IHG has implemented a policy limiting PointBreaks reservations to two per hotel, it should be easier to get in on these discounts. Some folks were confused by IHG’s policy and thought it limited members to booking two nights. That is not the case – you are simply limited to two reservations, which is good because it limits the amount of faux bookings done simply to afford members greater flexibility in securing their travel plans.

  1. does point break have an in between period, will they announce another point break after 7/31 ? my travel plan doesnt come til beginning of September

  2. Ariana, this question is about MS, I bought 2k of $500 visa from Simon Mall(westminster mall) in my area, anyway they made me fill out a form with DL and everything. is there any thing I should worry with this procedure, like report to the Fed or IRS ? thanks

      Usually this happens when you buy $1k or more. It’s nothing to be concerned about if it happens a few times, but I’d personally avoid it going forward. You don’t want to get flagged for money laundering or have your DL information out there. Just try your best to keep it under $1k going forward and you’ll be fine.
