Earlier this week, the Priority Club Connect online forum released the next set of PointBreaks hotel properties, and the list goes live today on the official PointBreaks page, where you will be able to book discounted award nights for just 5,000 points a night for stays through October 31, 2013.

Take a look at the new list of the IHG Rewards PointBreaks
Take a look at the new list of the IHG Rewards PointBreaks hotel properties.

IHG Rewards PointBreaks are reduced-level award redemptions at IHG Rewards hotels (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, Holiday Inn, etc.) that require just 5,000 Priority Club points for a free night and that change every 2 months. Depending on the hotel at which you redeem them, 5,000 points can be a pretty great value, especially for Intercontinental properties, which normally require between 30,000-50,000 points, and Hotel Indigos and Crowne Plazas, which usually require 20,000-50,000 points depending on their category.

The InterContinental Jordan is on the current list of PointBreaks.

The list of PointBreak properties is usually pretty random, and there tend to be a lot more lower-end properties, but keep track of them because you never know when you might be in one of these offbeat destinations. For instance, one of the properties on this Priority Club PointsBreaks list is the InterContinental Amman which is going for 136 JOD ($192) per night, so if you were able to redeem 5,000 points instead of paying the $192 nightly rate, you would be receiving about a 3.8 cents of value per point. Weekend Blitz compiled a map of participating properties so you can see if any are in parts of the world that you plan to visit.

If you need IHG Rewards points quickly, they transfer 1:1 from Chase Ultimate Rewards (note: transfers usually take 1-2 business days) if you have the Chase Sapphire PreferredInk Bold or Ink Plus cards. Or simply buy them via Priority Club directly for .7 cents a point using the cash & points method described in this post (#7), making 5,000 points worth just $35.
