Intercontinental (IHG) hotels loyalty scheme Priority Club offers “PointBreaks” every few months which is one of the best reward booking deals in the industry.
Intercontinental hotels selects a number of their hotels to participate and offers stays at these at an astounding 5,000 Priority Club reward points per night instead of the usual 30,000-50,000 points. This means that if you like the destinations that are participating in the offer you can potentially snag 10 nights at one of their hotels on points that would usually only buy you a single night.
The list of the hotels that participate is always quite random and unlikely to be in cities like London and New York, but there are usually a couple of appealing hotels and the offerings are always amazing value if you spot somewhere you would like to travel to.
IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks for booking February 25 – May 31, 2015 should come out tomorrow. If you keep an eye on this flyertalk thread you should be the first to find out about which hotels are taking part. If you are not a member of Intercontinental hotels Priority Club you join and can buy points here.
