I’ve often written about the IHG brand of hotels and how we are always able to find them wherever we travel. Although I really like Hyatt, I can’t find Hyatt in many of the locations that I travel to.
The other week I had also written about the 80,000 points for a sign up bonus if you applied for the IHG credit card. For those that do not remember, IHG hotels include Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn Suites, Staybridge, Candlewood and lots more.
In addition to their large footprint across the world, they do something else which does help stretch my points. Once every quarter they “mark down” some of their hotels to just 5,000 points per night. This is called Pointbreaks.
IHG has just released their list of Pointbreak hotels for this quarter. They go quickly so if you are interested, I would go to the link, look at the list and make your reservations now if you find a hotel close to where you will be.
If you do not have any IHG points you can transfer some of your Ultimate Reward points (UR), or purchase some points from IHG.
If you aren’t a member of the IHG Reward Club, I suggest you sign up for it so you will be ready in case you need to transfer points, buy points or get points from a stay.
