IHG Rewards has released its list of specific hotels that qualify for the PointsBreak promotion where you only need to use 5,000 points to redeem for a reward night. IHG hotels can range from 10,000 points to 50,000 points for a reward night, so the PointsBreak promotion can be very attractive. I have taken advantage of this promotion several times and it was worth every point each time.
Sometimes this list gets released every 2 or 3 months. It has been getting released every 2 months lately, so that’s a good thing.
Just a quick reminder that IHG Rewards changed its terms and conditions to restrict PointBreaks to only 2 reservations per hotel during the PointsBreak period. It does mean that you can have multiple consecutive nights per reservation.
Below is a list of Canadian hotels that made it to the most recent PointsBreak list:
This is not an impressive list for travelers who wish to stay at Canadian hotels. Hopefully the next list will be more impressive. More importantly though, I hope that this promotion will continue to exist until we see something better, because this promotion is one of the main reasons why I put IHG Rewards as one of my top choice for best hotel loyalty program.
