Here’s the question:

what happened to pointsbreak? pls look on official site: only 1 hotel from Europe(UK), 1 Asian,1 Chinese,1 MEA… are they closing that promotion?

Seems that the current state of PointBreaks hotels is indeed rather weak:

There are only 17 PointBreaks hotels left of the140 that were available at the end of April and we still have three weeks to go before the next patch.

IHG Rewards Club has always released roughly 150 hotels for the PointBreaks and I don’t see this changing anytime soon. The promotion is very popular and many are able to take advantage of the award sale.


This PointBreaks promotion has become increasingly popular and the most sought after hotels get booked with an hour or so after the new list is released.

Last time, IHG Reward Club didn’t release PointBreaks preview as they have usually done. They just activated the new PointBreaks hotels and dumped the new list to their website few hours later.

If you are looking for the next patch, we should get the new list in three weeks time just before the end of the month.
