I’m Breaking Up With The IHG Hotels PointBreaks Discount Promotion

Every three months, IHG releases a list of PointBreaks hotels that are available for the next three months to book with points at reduced rates. Originally, all the hotels on the list were available for 5,000 points a night, which was a great deal.

However this announcement caused a huge buzz because of the changes that IHG was making to the promotion. In addition to saying the list would be released, they also announced that instead of the previous price of 5,000 Rewards Club points a night, there would now be three different point categories with rooms costing either 5,000, 10,000 or 15,000 points a night. Why was this such a big deal?
