From MillionMileSecrets.com, IHG made their fall PointBreaks promotion active this morning - and it appears to have slowed their servers to a crawl! This promotion offers reward nights at a limited number of IHG properties for just 5,000 points per night! The terms for this promotion include:

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 October 31, 2015. All other Reward Night terms and conditions apply. To view participating properties, simply click one of the regions below.

For two of my Georgia Tech football road games this fall, I was able to book the limit of two PointBreaks reservations at the new Greensboro Coliseum Holiday Inn in Greensboro, NC. Each reservation was for an Executive Suite. This cost me a total of 10,000 IHG points but I was able to cancel an existing reservation for one of these nights that had cost me 10,000 points already! So, thanks to PointBreaks, my rewards balance remains unchanged and I will avoid paying for one of the two nights I booked. As an added bonus, as an Chase IHG Rewards MasterCard holder, I will receive 10% of these points rebated to my account, making my total cost only 9,000 points!

You can view the full list here. If you find any properties of interest, act fast as nights at some properties reportedly book fast.
