IHG Rewards PointsBreaks — Summer 2018

A list of hotel and resort properties are released from IHG Rewards Club every three months or so which participate in what are known as PointBreaks — through which you will need to redeem as few as 5,000 points to a maximum of 15,000 points per reward night — and the latest list of 148 hotel and resort properties are now in effect and available for redemption through Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

IHG Rewards PointsBreaks — Summer 2018

Many reservations which are booked through PointBreaks are refundable; and you can book up to a maximum of two reservations per hotel or resort property due to limited availability.

This offer and participating hotel and resort properties are subject to change at any time. All other terms and conditions for reward nights apply.

Summary

The hotel and resort properties which participate in PointBreaks are typically not exactly ones which would be the most popular — unless you were really counting on spending your vacation near Buffalo Niagara International Airport or overlooking Interstate 20 in Augusta and were hoping to spend 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night — and you could forget about booking a reservation at a hotel or resort property in Hawaii or the Maldives during the winter or holiday seasons…

…but if the hotel properties included on the list are located in destinations where you want or need to go, redeeming only 5,000 IHG Rewards Club points is difficult to beat; and redeeming 10,000 IHG Rewards Club points or 15,000 IHG Rewards Club points arguable even less so. South Africa, Australia and Thailand are some of the desirable places you can go with this latest iteration with PointBreaks, which is usually a great way to save points on lodging reservations.

Please note that 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 IHG Rewards Club frequent guest loyalty program.

Also, remember that you can redeem 50 percent fewer IHG Rewards Club points for stays at 37 participating hotel and resort properties in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean from Tuesday, May 1, 2018 through Saturday, June 30, 2018 — but Monday, May 7, 2018 is the last day by which you must book your reservations in order to take advantage of this promotion.
