Wiki was copied from 2017 thread
Created WIKI Mar2017 purely to add the "new" IHG PB List URL as I can't find by screen navigation since IHG changed the reservation screens etc, and the old url if saved no longer works either.

Just got fed up trying to find , much easier to store in wiki, hope this helps others

Pointbeaks changed the amount of points needed: This is discussed in this thread: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/intercontinental-hotels-ihg-rewards-club-intercontinental-ambassador/1890423-point-breaks-now-5k-10-15k.html

This thread is about the discussion about the locations and the actual list, please use the thread above for discussions about the increased number of points needed for pointbreak redemptions.

Use this URL for "Live" PB Listing:
https://www.ihg.com/rewardsclub/content/us/en/redeem-rewards/pointbreaks.html

The PREVIEW list usually appears on IHG's blog first

People familiar and experienced with previous PB releases knows about this and would like to assume this round of PB release would be the same.

There is no guarantee but old timers here do have a point.

IHG Blog just published an EXTENDED PREVIEW list. The full list will be published on IHG website on 29th JAN NOON (Assume US Eastern time of central time.)

Highlight hotel includes InterContinental in Cali, Sao Paolo and Kiev. Holiday Inn Resort in Bali and several Crowne Plazas.

Pity Crowne Plaza Belgrade is at 10,000 category as it appeared on PB before.

Preview list is up now:

https://blog.ihg.com/ihg-rewards-clu...breaks-preview

Not an IHG expert enough to say whether it looks good or not but will say that I stayed at the CP Abu Dhabi a couple of months ago for 80. A points break option of 15000points for it seems a bit underwhelming.

Then you start to have shopper loose out because there are limited supply and the disappointed shoppers never returned to the shop (sounds familiar?)......

My point is, you can extend the scenario indefinitely. Stick to the simple principles of the original discussions is better than extend the theoretic discussion. Once you go off course to argue your point there are endless possibilities and discussion will just dilute the original topic. Let us stick to PB and PB only. Thanks.
Translation: first, let me spend some time illustrating my own theoretical example. Ok, now that I've done that, I conclude that we should stop all theoretical discussions... starting NOW!!

IC Kiev, routinely goes for $350 per night for 15K is excellent. Plus lounge access for RA on awards stay, and it's a great lounge.

A bit of a devaluation if you look at the preview. CP Belgrade used to appear on the PB list with some regularity, but now is available at 10,000
