IHG Rewards PointBreaks Advice For Monday (September 29, 2014)


On Friday, IHG made the PointBreaks preview available (read more here) that appears to be the full list (sometimes IHG only releases a teaser).

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 (September 29, 2014).

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

IHG made some changes to the PointBreaks “rules” earlier this year no longer allowing 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). Note that the system allows you to make multiple reservation, but this may put your IHG Rewards Club account in danger.

I expect that the PointBreaks availability will be loaded sometime around 8AM to 10AM EST. The IHG PointBreaks web page is not usually updated for couple of hours after this.


Seems that IHG continues to experiment the way they release the list of PointBreaks hotels. Sometimes we get a short preview list first following by the entire list a day later. Earlier in the year, IHG didn’t release the entire list at all, but just made the hotels available at the PointBreaks prices and updated their web page few hours later.

Although the Crowne Plaza Jerusalem gets bad reviews on TripAdvisor, I would expect this hotel to be one of the very first to drop off from the list. Remember that IHG hotels must only make 5% of their room inventory available as awards.

Once the booking of the hotels have gone live on IHG.com, we will post an update on LoyaltyLobby and will link it on Facebook and Twitter too.
