New IHG PointBreaks List Released: One of the appealing award opportunities with IHG’s loyalty program is the PointBreaks list that comes out every quarter. For hotels listed on their PointBreaks list, award nights are only 5,000 points! The properties range from Holiday Inn Express to Intercontinental hotels. 5K points per night is quite the deal, especially if you’re able to snag one of the more expensive properties for 5K points a night. It would definitely be worth your time to check out the list to see if any of the properties fit into your future travel plans.

Dallas is an American Airlines hub, so there is no question that Delta is fighting back with this sale. Hey, I’m not going to complain! I’ll take advantage of their quarrels with these crazy deals!
