Priority Club refreshes its PointBreaks (reduced, 5,000 point a night hotel redemptions) several times a year and they just unveiled their new list and its lackluster at best.
While the PointBreaks lists are usually their cheaper properties (Holiday Inn Express, Candlewood Suites, Staybridge Suites, etc) there are usually a couple decent Crowne Plazas and an occasional Intercontinental thrown in to jazz things up. Not so much this time. If you do see any PB hotel, take advantage of it by February 28, 2011.
I usually browse the PB list before going to Europe to see if I can cover any transit stays with a PB hotel since even “cheap” hotels can be expensive when they are priced in Euros. This time there are only 6 European properties listed:
HOLIDAY INN HEIDELBERG
Overall, this continues the “Lackluster 2011 Hotel Promos” trend that I’ve been seeing. I’m hopingpraying that Hyatt breaks this cycle and comes out with a killer Faster Free Nights promotion. I know it may be a longshot since they’ve hinted at a points based promo, but a points hound can dream! Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
