The Best Promo in the World (Beginners’ Edition)

With some miles/points smarts, it’s possible to turn 3 paid nights into something like 10 award nights. Or imagine you could pay for 3 crappy Holiday Inns or 3 hotels you’d need anyways and get 2 free nights at any hotel in the world with points left over. Like the $1,000 a night InterContinental Bora Bora or one of my favorites is the InterContinental Hong Kong, or my Mom’s favorite (and where we stayed on the same floor as the president of South Korea) the InterContinental Paris.

An Introduction to PointBreaks

I’m always excited when it’s time for the PointBreaks list to come out. If it weren’t for IHG’s PointBreaks list, the cheapest IHG stay would be about 10,000 points and would get you into the cheapest Holiday Inn. But thanks to PointBreaks, the cheapest IHG stay can be had for 5,000 points and can get you something as nice as a 5 star InterContinental.Click to keep reading…
