Looks like points break is dead!

So sad, many J families used it for cheap trips, getting multiple rooms on the cheap.

Hope this news is fake news.

It's possible it's dead, but it's been late in the past, and I wouldn't say it's dead because a blogger is looking for clickbait.

I am afraid it is true, they basically devalued gradually over the last two years. Also not only is the list late there usually is a preview a few days before. B"H I have very few points left, I will be exiting the IHG eco system and be sticking with Hyatt and marriott.

It figures.  I was looking to book a nice beach vacation for March using my igh points, which is the only points I have left.

The article contains a quote from IHG indicating PB days are over.

Not every article is for click bait. I actually find LL to be pretty ok about not pushing articles for the sake of pushing. Some days he will only have three or less articles, that's less then DD. His style articles are always the same.

The quote doesn't say much.

"We do not have a new IHG Rewards Club PointBreaks promotion planned currently"


Also the CC has a 140k offer @5k =28 nights.  I dont see these two as an indicator there will be a new PB.

I hope to be wrong.
