IHG Point Breaks are OUT!
Every 3 months, the IHG hotel chain releases its hotels around the world that they are giving point breaks on–for only 5K IHG points (instead of 10K +, sometimes as high as 40K+), you can stay at any of the properties on this list up until July 31st for up to 2 reservations per hotel for unlimited periods of time! They allow for up to 200 reservations per hotel with Point Breaks.
To get IHG points, you can transfer points from Chase (in the US) or buy/trade points through points.com. In the US, a Chase IHG M/C–which gives at least 60K welcome points when you sign up. In Canada, now that Capital One dropped its IHG card, it's much harder to find a way to get IHG points without staying on one of their properties. Once you have 5K points with them, see below as to what you can do to get more points! BTW, for my American readers, here's a link for 80K but you have to have a US address and a Social Security Number usually to qualify with Chase USA, BUT...
Once you have 5K points through one of the above ways, you can also do a trick to get points on IHG’s website, which involves getting a room at one of the hotels that is part of the 5K point break deal. You can choose to pay for it instead for $70. Get the room. It’s non-refundable, BUT they’ll give you point in lieu of the cancelled room. That way, a room will cost you, with Point Breaks, about $30USD a night!
