    Coincidence that the IHG booking platform has changed? IC site won`t let me book for points….

  2. I’m wondering if IHG are changing Pointbreaks. To be honest the offering over the last few releases hasn’t been inspiring.

  3. New York time 8am? Ummm which hotels’s headquarter is in NYC ?

    • Thanks. Someone mentioned that recently but it wasn’t in either of the Locals near us.

      • I’ve seen it at a few Sainsburys (larger stores).They had plenty of cards in stock.
