Oh yes – there is a new PointsBreak list

In case you haven't seen it on every other blog – yes there is a new list out for PointsBreaks. I always get all excited when I read it on (Insert your favorite blog here) first and my excitement fades away pretty quickly because it's too bad I can't make it to the HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS AND SUITES BANNING or the CANDLEWOOD SUITES KANSAS CITY NORTHEAST this time.

Seriously stays must be until March 31, 2013, many hotels sell out inventory quickly and it's really off-season. Coupled with IHG's great BRG and tons of IHG points I find hard to use I'm not sure I will ever make use of it. Plus most of my hotel stays are planned well in advance.

Dans Deals highlights some good ones.

-Intercontinental Fiji Resort
-Holiday Inn Sao Paulo, Brazil
-Holiday Inn Auckland, New Zealand
-Holiday Inn Express Krakow
-Crowne Plaza Johannesburg

If you are headed for Fiji, Brazil (expensive!) or Jo'burg (summer is also expensive there) it may make sense to check the Pointsbreaks and rebook your existing plans.
