Over the past couple of days, I have received several messages from readers about the next batch of IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks and when they will be out.
You can access IHG’s page for PointBreaks here.
Here’s the message from the reader:
Hi John: thank you for your very informative travel blog. I read it all the time. Can you tell me what date you expect the newest IHG point break info to come out ? Will you be posting the info a few days before it goes live ?
The last round of PointBreaks is valid until July 31, 2017
– Booking went live on April 24 (last Monday of April)
– Full preview list was published on April 21 (Friday)
– We received preview from IHG on April 20 (Thursday)
I would assume that we receive the Preview on Thursday (July 27), full list on Friday (July 28) and the booking will go live on Monday (July 31st).
Note that there have been occasional changes to this “release schedule”. We will monitor the situation and will have posts up as soon as we receive information from IHG.
Let’s hope that the new PointBreaks list that we should have in less than a week is a good one. I haven’t been able to take advantage of the PB hotels as of late because travel has been set in stone for bit longer period than in the past.
I certainly remember those stays at the InterContinental Asiana, InterContinental Asiana Residences, InterContinental Hanoi Westlake, Crowne Plaza Bangkok, InterContinental Jakarta Midplaza (now gone), Crowne Plaza Jakarta, InterContinental Tahiti and others that I have been to (sometimes extended period) using these 5,000 points per night bargains.
