InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) offers select hotels every 3 months at a discounted rate for reward stays. These are called PointBreaks and stays can be booked for just 5,000 points/night. IHG released a preview of the list for April 24 – July 31 today which can be found here.
With the current sign-up bonus of 60,000 points for the credit card from Chase, someone could stay at a single PointBreaks hotel for 12 nights OR 12 hotels for 1 night each.
PointBreaks hotels typically won’t be for the fancy luxurious hotels that typically cost $400+. They are, however, more for a road-trip or a quick overnight visit to a nearby city.
This means the list isn’t going to include the InterContinental New York Times Square during New Year’s Eve, but it does include hotels like the Holiday Inn Express Karlsruhe City Park which runs for about $120 in July.
I’m still making my reservations for my upcoming Europe trip this summer so that Holiday Inn Express in Karlsruhe could be a nice overnight stop on my way through Germany.
Again, the list found above and here are only previews. Trying to book the Holiday In Exress for July before Monday will still show reward nights as 20,000 points/night. Starting April 24, the hotels listed will have a lowest possible price of 5,000 points/night.
