IHG PointBreaks is among the best hotel promotions out there. It allows you to book a hotels for only 5,000 points per night and stay in IHG hotels for under $30 per night!
The promotion can be a great deal when you find a hotel to book that normally costs 20,000 to 35,000 points per night.

The current IHG PointBreaks list is valid until the end of the month and the new list will be valid for bookings from October 31, 2016 to January 31, 2017.
You can find the current list of IHG PointBreaks hotels here and this page will be updated by IHG when the new list is released on Monday October 31, 2016.
Since some hotels get booked up quickly this is just a reminder to stay tuned for the new list to launch.
Up To 100% Bonus on IHG Points
Also this week, IHG launched a flash sale offering up to 100% bonus on purchased points. The promotion is set to last until November 16, 2016.
If you get the 100% bonus offer this means buying IHG points as cheap as 0.575 cents a piece, but it’s not necessarily a good idea unless you know you can use them.
The good news is that this promotion overlaps with the IHG PointBreaks list and if you can your purchased points at PointBreaks hotels you’ll only be paying $28.75 per night.
Here are the full details on the promotion:
