IHG PointBreaks Advice For Monday (July 28, 2014)


On Friday, IHG made the PointBreaks preview available (read more here) that appears to be the full list unlike last time when they only released a very short list.

IHG Rewards Club Advice May 27

IHG Rewards Club has not, however, updated the PointBreaks web page with the new hotels yet and this will likely happen few hours later after they become bookable tomorrow (Monday July 28, 2014).

You can access IHG’s web page for PointBreaks here.

IHG made some changes to the PointBreaks “rules” earlier this year that no longer allows people to book more than two reservations per the same hotel (note that one reservation can be as many awards nights as there are available or you want to book) during one PointBreaks period (read more here).

I expect that the PointBreaks availability will be loaded sometime around 9AM to 11AM EST. This has been the window in the past, but with these recent changes, there is no guarantee. Our daily email blog broadcast will go out tomorrow once the PointBreaks have become available to book to remind our readers.


Some could prefer IHG not making the full preview list available before they are able to book them because this may allow some to plan “hoarding” award inventory. You have to remember that IHG hotels must make, at minimum, only 5% of their room inventory available as awards.

I didn’t see anything SUPER SUPER hot (no French Polynesia or Crowne Plaza Bangkok) on the PointBreaks list this time, but would expect some of the hotels to drop off the list after the first day.
