The best point redemption deal in the world of hotel loyalty programs is back – the IHG Point Break list. Hotels on the list may be redeemed for only 5000 points per night for stays that take place before the end of October. However, there are a few important things to remember. First, the most popular hotels will drop off the list fairly quickly and revert to their original points rate. Also, you may only make up to two bookings at any one hotel. There are two participating hotels in the Maritimes.
The Crowne Plaza Moncton Downtown is normally 20,000 points per night.
The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Halifax – Bedford is also 20,000 points per night.
Although the list has been posted, the hotels are not yet bookable at the 5000 point rate. That should happen relatively soon.
The Mystery Bonus promotion for purchasing IHG points has apparently been extended until today. Check here to see if you have a 100% bonus on a purchase. Points appear in your IHG account within 24-48 hours according to the website.
