I have written many times in the past about the fabulous IHG Pointbreaks program. It is one of the best deals bar none in hotel redemptions at only 5,000 IHG points per night. When you can get hotels like this stunning Intercontinental in Lhasa, Tibet for just 5,000 points instead of the normal 35,000 a night it is a steal!Every few months when they release the Pointbreaks list I share my thoughts with you on the best values. In fact, I like to plan whole trips around the list when it comes out sometimes. Once you find some properties you like read our article on How to Book an IHG Pointbreaks Room for tips and tricks. Remember the best properties will sell out within a few hours so if you see something you like it really is a case of “Book first, ask questions later.” Since IHG doesn’t charge anything to cancel a reservation as long as you have some points in your account, why not speculatively book a little getaway to some far flung part of the world?
If you don’t have many IHG points then why don’t you check out their latest Set Your Sights promotion which can give you 50K points or more? Or the easy way is to apply for the IHG Rewards MasterCard which has a massive 70K bonus after spending just $1,000!
Here are the properties that interested me. Surprisingly, 3 out of 4 of them are in China, where I was just about a year ago and I used Pointbreaks just like these for tons of free nights!
InterContinental Lhasa Paradise, Tibet, China
Holiday Inn Fortaleza, Brazil
Crowne Plaza Tianjin Jinnan, China
These are just the ones that popped out at me, feel free to take a look at the full list and see if you can find one that matches your travel plans and wishes. But remember that if you want to get a certain property, be looking around 9 A.M. EST on February 25!
As we mentioned before, read our article on How to Book a Pointbreaks Room for the exact process to follow. And don’t forget that IHG is a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards which also means the points from your Chase Sapphire Preferred’s 40,000 point sign on bonus could be used for 8 nights at these properties!
