As always, IHG Rewards Club point reservations are refundable. Make sure to make a new booking for each night (5 night stay = 5 bookings). This will allow you to shorten you stay, without loosing your complete PointBreaks booking!

Hi, I am looking to book but see nothing regarding the rate on the website, Is there a date you can start to book or a particular procedure for point break bookings? Looking at Tahiti. Thanks.
Gary, you can book these hotels at PointBreaks rate as of Today, Nov 1 2013. Rates go live in the late afternoon (UK time)
I’m new, I have zero points, can I buy them?
Yes, I would recommend to buy 5000 points via the IHG Rewards Club website. Once you have the 5000 points, make a random ‘points + cash’ booking at a hotel which requires 15000 points (search for Beijing hotels for example) You’ll have the option to book the hotel for 5000 points + $70. Double check the cancellation terms, 99% of the points + cash bookings can be cancelled. Once booking confirmation screen appears, choose cancel booking. You’ll now have 15000 points in your account. You actually bought 10000 points for $70. Repeat these steps until you have the required points you need. This trick is much cheaper than buying points directly via IHG Rewards Club. Enjoy!
Thank’s Bart for You advice but I think this deal doesn’t work any more.
When I choose 5000 points + 70 USD it says I need 10 000 points.

Maybe I’m doing something wrong ?
That’s indeed weird. Did you try with several hotels?
HI Bart. On the link there are far less hotels vs what you mentioned…Do you have a link with the complete list of participating hotels ?
OlpiM, you’re looking at the Oct-Nov 2013 PointBreaks list of hotels which can be booked for stays until Oct 31. That same link will have the update list of hotels on Friday November 1, 2013 for stays from Nov 1, 2013 until Jan 31, 2014. Thank you.
Ok, thanks a lot.
List is not too bad
Surprisingly it’s 3 months
Do those Pointbreak night qualify for the Big Win Promotion?
Kevin, only revenue stays earn points & qualify for The Big Win promotion.
