Some of my vacation planning is now being done courtesy of International Hotels Group (IHG). My decisions about where to visit are increasingly based upon where IHG has some of their super-cheap PointBreaks hotels.
For example, last year it was Liverpool, England and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I also was able to utilize PointBreaks hotels for already-planned trips to North Carolina and Phoenix.
The new list of IHG PointBreaks should come out in about a week, so I can plan my next trips then. The best places to find the PointBreaks announcement, when it comes out, seem to be http://LoyaltyLobby.com or http://MommyPoints.com
