Bits: more 02 concerts for SPG and Marriott points, preview of the new IHG PointBreaks list for Monday

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

News in brief:

New O2 concerts available in the SPG suite!

Another batch of concerts has been added to the SPG Moments and Marriott Moments sites.

These are a good use of points – the box, whilst a long way from the stage, is very comfortable (see photo below) and the food and drink on offer is high quality.  Here is Anika’s review of a trip to see Muse.

This is the current list on SPG Moments (click here).  The new additions are at the top.  All prices are for TWO tickets and priced in SPG points.

Flight of the Conchords (21st June) – 15,000 points

Quincy Jones (22nd June) – 15,000 points

Queen & Adam Lambert (2nd and 4th July) – 15,000 points

Justin Timberlake (9th July) – 25,000 points

The Muppets (14th July) – 15,000 points

Iron Maiden (10th and 11th August) – 15,000 points

Walking with Dinosaurs (15th August) – 15,000 points

Britney Spears (24th, 25th and 26th August) – 20,000 points

Some of the above, plus a few others which have been around for a while, are also on Marriott Moments (click here).  Here are the extra ones.  These prices are for TWO people and are in Marriott Rewards points (so x 3 from the equivalent number of SPG points).

Nickelback (11th May) – 45,000 points

Trevor Noah (19th May) – 45,000 points

Flight of the Conchords (20th June) – 45,000 points

Preview of tomorrow’s new IHG PointBreaks list released

IHG Rewards Club will be releasing the list of new ‘5,000 to 15,000 points per night’ PointBreaks redemptions during Monday. 

We will run it on HFP on Monday afternoon, if possible, and it will go to the email list on Tuesday.

Remember that PointBreaks have changed.  They are now priced at three levels – 5,000 points, 10,000 points and 15,000 points.  This is allowing a higher quality of hotel to be featured.

IHG has released a teaser.  There will be 170 hotels on the full list, and this time they will include:

Book at 5,000 IHG points per night:

Book at 10,000 IHG points per night:

Book at 15,000 IHG points per night:

The most interesting deals are in the 15,000 point list – particularly Dusseldorf and Muscat.  There will be 150 other hotels to pick from too.

You can book from Monday afternoon.  I imagine that these rooms will go very quickly.

PointBreaks availability is very limited so book ASAP if you are interested.  You can book via the IHG PointBreaks page here or via the standard booking page here.  These hotels will be bookable for stays until the end of July.

GONE: Excellent, but convoluted, Virgin / Delta business class deals to the US from £939!

    hello all. is it still possible to choose an exit row for ‘free’ if there is still one available and you don’t select during online check in and instead check in using the computer in the terminal building? thanks in advance.

  2. OT: to use the mbna virgin upgrade voucher, do I have to be one of the passengers?

  3. Sundar says:
