New IHG PointBreaks List Is Out

13

IHG PointBreaks Linky

The current list is valid for stays from 07/01 through 08/31. Hotels can sell out quickly.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 Priority Club/IHG points. If you already have 5,000 Priority Club/IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet Priority Club sells 5,000 points for $67.50 or you can instantly transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Priority Club.

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy points for .7 cents each.  You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

To do so just search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70.  The $70 paid is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will get back 15,000 points in your account.  Effectively you are buying 10,000 Priority Club points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

In other words the cost per each 5,000 point stay is just $35 once you already have 5,000 initial points in your account.

Sample hotels for $35 per night:

-Crowne Plaza Edison, NJ
-Holiday Inn Express Woodbridge, NJ
-Crowne Plaza St. Louis Airport
-Candlewood Suites Kansas City Airport
-Candlewood Suites Salt Lake City-Airport
-Candlewood Suites Elgin NW-Chicago
-Candlewood Suites Miami Airport West
-Crowne Plaza Phoenix North

-Crowne Plaza Montreal Airport
-InterContinental Athens, Greece
-InterContinental Bucharest, Romania
-InterContinental San Jose, Costa Rica
-Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu

no kapish, you book to use, and you say its a good rate?
or better book and collect the points (so you buy points at a good rate?)

can you please explain on entry level what is the point break idea? how many of them would you need, and what does it enable you to do?

Thanks

I am not familiar at all with this program. Is there a post on the main site or forums that explains the program? Is there limited quantity of rooms available at the pointbrakes properties? Do they get all booked up far in advance? Thanks.

im abit confused as to how to go about this

eli

why do they give you points for canceling?

Redbull3

Eli, they are refunding your purchase. Your currency to pay is your choice of 15k or $70+5k, but when you cancel, you must accept 15k regardless of how you paid (which as Dan is implying, is worth > than $70+5k).
