Visit Canadian Rockies and Shop at the Biggest Mall in North America this Summer With IHG PointBreaks Hotel For Only 5,000 IHG Points


IHG has released their Rewards PointBreaks for summer time that's valid through July 31, 2016. This promotion allows IHG member to redeem points for a free night stay at any IHG hotels that are on the participating list for only 5,000 IHG Points. I value IHG point at 0.7 cents per point, that means for 5,000 points, I am actually paying $35 for one night stay.

I happen to travel to Edmonton Canada this June to visit Canadian Rockies of Banff and Jasper National Park. Staybridge Suites West Edmonton in Alberta Canada is on the list that participates with this promotion. I went ahead and reserved the room for 5,000 IHG Points per night. Staybridge Suites looks new and it is located by the West Edmonton Mall, one of the biggest malls in North America. They also provide FREE parking and a complimentary full buffet breakfast that's not just the regular continental breakfast. A huge Studio 1 King Bed Suite with a Sleeper Sofa. I am excited to jump on the deal and looking forward to our stay there. The regular nightly rate there is 156 Canadian Dollars before tax. With this promotion, I only pay 5,000 IHG points, which is equivalent to $35 based of my IHG point's valuation. So this is definitely a steal!

What Is IHG Rewards PointBreaks?

It is IHG hotel's special promotion that runs every 3 months for IHG rewards club members. Members can redeem points for a free night stay for only 5,000 points during the promotional period. I value IHG point at 0.7 cents per point, that means for 5,000 points, I am actually paying $35 for one night stay. The great thing about this promotion is that it's not just for IHG hotels in America, but also hotels around the world.

So What's The Catch?

Do note that not all IHG hotels worldwide are participating with this promotion. Most hotels on the PointBreak's list that participate with this promotion are the ones that are usually in a destination that's less travelled to; however, they do have good ones once in awhile. It makes it fun to wonder which awesome hotel could show up on the list. The popular ones obviously will be sold out quick, and therefore it's recommended that you jump on the deal quickly and cancel later as using points to redeem for an award night offers free cancellation up until check-in date. For those that will just happen to travel to the destination or on the road that has a participating IHG hotel on the PointsBreak's list, it's a fantastic deal to pass. It's also worth noting that each member can only book two reward nights reservations per hotel and each member also needs to have at least 5,000 IHG Points in his/her account to take advantage of this deal.
