IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks (released Jul 2018)

Deal Link:
Expiry: Sep 30, 2018

IHG Rewards Club has released their latest IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks. I think the PointBreaks is one of the best hotel points deals around. With the PointBreaks promotion, you can take advantage of Reward Nights for as little as 5000 points per night! And this time, you can also book some premium hotels with 10000 to 15000 points per night (including some Crowne Plaza and InterContinental hotels).

Due to the limited availability, each member may only book two PointBreaks Reward Nights reservations per hotel during the special offer time period. Offer and participating hotels are subject to change at any time, valid for booking through September 30th, 2018.

If you don't have enough IHG points in your account, you can buy some points now with 50%/75%/100% bonus when you buy 5000+ points for this event. This offer ends Aug 22, 2018. Please click the "BUY NOW" link below to check your own offer.

New Transfer Rate: 1000 AmEx MR = 1200 New Marriott

As of Aug 4, 2018, the current transfer rate of 1000 AmEx MR = 500 SPG = 1500 Marriott will end. The new transfer rate will be 1000 AmEx MR = 1200 New Marriott. It is almost 20% decrease, but still better than what we expected before (we thought AmEx may change the rate to 1:1 before). Base on this new rate, I think AmEx Cobalt Card will still be a very good card to earn Marriott points after Aug 2018.

If you have enough AmEx Cobalt MR points, I suggest you to transfer them into SPG before Jul 27. Because you will not be able to do the point transfer from Jul 27 to Aug 9, 2018, inclusive.

Save 35% on SPG points


When you buy SPG points through Jul 20, 2018, you will receive 35% off the regular price. As you know, SPG will merge with Marriott after Aug 1st, 2018. So this is probably the last chance you can buy SPG points with 35% off. I already bought 30,000 SPG in the last May promotion. This time, my wife will probably buy some points through her account. We just love SPG so much...
