    I just tried to make a couple of reservations, but both hotels came up at their regular rates instead of the PointBreaks rate. Calling an agent didn't help. This has happened in teh early hours of a new PointBreaks list before, so I will try again tomorrow and hope that PC has the hotels' rates properly entered in the system then.

    If you click on United States or Oceania, the bottom of the page says:

    "Offer and participating hotels are subject to change at any time, valid for booking through January 31, 2012...."

    The InterCont. Chicago property looks like a nice reason to visit the windy city.

    Hope something good pops up while I refresh my Asia screen.

    You got me quite excited for a moment there - until I looked it up and see it's the IC O'Hare and not the one on the Mag Mile. :oops:

    I just kept refreshing the PointBreaks page. Also, kept checking the thread at FT about PointBreaks.
    Lists are now up worldwide, though nothing in Oceania. I tried again just now to book a couple of properties and I still get the higher points rate, not the 5000 points rate. Anyone else get a property that comes up at 5000 points?

    Lots of InterContinental properties on the list worldwide this time. Too bad I've got all my travel booked out for January and none of the places I am going are on the list! :eek:

    Hmmm, got one Asia property that looks good. Now I just need it to work for 5k. PBs are always fun. :)

    When they finally work. :)
    I am waiting for the day that PC's website competence matches their PB generosity.
    Not complaining, as I picked up 5 nights from the last list and a couple more from previous ones

    I love point breaks for the airport hotels that are always on the list. Especially in the winter I like to stay before an early AM flight to avoid any possible traffic delays and I can usually avoid having to pay for parking at the airport.

    I was able to book a night at a U.S. property for 5000 points. Hopefully the whole list worldwide is loaded and working now. :)

    It looks like PC takes down PB opportunities when they fill. Earlier today, I was considering one of the offerings, as part of a strategy. Hours later, it no longer showed. :(
