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/inte...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:

The PREVIEW list usually appears on IHG's blog first

I’d imagine it will be next Friday (27th) at the earliest even for a preview.

At least HI Brighton gor refurbed 4years ago. However small number of rooms so won't last a day once PB goes live, especially August nights.

I could use some October nights though if I get in quick enough, though October is UK half-term school holiday week 3rd week of October, so again popular

Could do with .. BKK/HKG/KUL/LON/AMS hotels but don't expect to get lucky

No preview means more rooms booked and later cancelled because travel arrangements are not possible, does this make it cheaper for Ihg?

They already leaked all that could possibly be of interest. No detailed preview means there's nothing else to see.

You mean holiday inn express or candlewood in middleofnowhersville doesn't excite most????

But on serious note every now and then those hotels can actually be of use if interstate traveling & just need a stop over. Hopefully I will be able to pick up one or a few : )) Geuss we will all have to wait until noon tommorow?

I would have thought so.

I would imagine and I would agree. Not having a preview means in the middle of work, cant reach the other half and you book to cancel later because if you wait for the afternoon , they are gone. Its really a no win for anyone but IHG.
