Earlier today, the Priority Club Connect online forum released the next set of PointBreaks hotel properties, and the list just went live on the official PointBreaks page where you can already make bookings for stays now through June 30, 2013.

PointBreaks

Priority Club PointBreaks are reduced-level award redemptions at Priority Club hotels (Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, Holiday Inn, etc.) that require just 5,000 Priority Club points for a free night and that change every 2 months. Depending on the hotel at which you redeem them, 5,000 points can be a pretty great value, especially for Intercontinental properties, which normally require between 30,000-50,000 points, and Hotel Indigo locations and Crowne Plazas, which require between 25,000-35,000 points.

If you need Priority Club points quickly, they transfer 1:1 from Chase Ultimate Rewards (note: transfers usually take 1-2 business days) if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold or Ink Plus cards. Or simply buy them via Priority Club directly for .7 cents a point using the cash & points method described in this post (#7), making 5,000 points worth just $35.

The Intercontinental Hanoi is one of this round of PointBreaks hotels.

Recent lists haven’t been very exciting, and the last one had just one Intercontinental. This one isn’t looking terribly impressive, but at least there are Crowne Plazas in Qatar, Mexico City, Colombia, Nicaragua and several in China (including one in Chengdu where the pandas are), the Intercontinental in Hanoi, Hotel Indigos in Birmingham and Newcastle in the UK plus a lot of European Holiday Inns, Intercontinentals in El Salvador and Honduras (this seems to be a popular PointBreaks property).

A stay at the Hotel Indigo Birmingham will only cost you 5,000 points until June 30.

In the US, the hotels are mostly Holiday Inns and Staybridge Suites, though there are Crowne Plazas in Little Rock, Nashua and Richmond, and a few Hotel Indigos sprinkled in. All in all, not the most exciting list, but 5,000 points is still a bargain considering you can get them for about $35, so if any of your upcoming travels take you to some of these places, you might as well look into redeeming your Priority Club points there.

    PC point is a worthless program like Hilton. what’s worse with PC besides their devalued program is that, their highest platinum membership DOES NOT even give you free internet, forget about free breakfast.

    Most of PC hotel requires 25k to 32k minimum points for one night

  • Dave

    No Intercontinentals. Blah. I’d probably pay 5,000 points NOT to have to stay at most of these hotels to be honest. I’ve left Priority Club for Marriott and have been trying to use up all my points (former Platinum member) and cant even do that because most of their top tier hotels are blacked out on reward points.

    Was able to use this Pointsbreak to my advantage for a hotel that I couldn’t find a cheaper rate to. Thanks!

    ERMAGERD. I’m going to Managua in a month. You saved my @$$

  • http://www.facebook.com/davidaitken4 David Aitken IV

    FYI: You cannot buy 5k extra points for $40 or the 10k for $70 when you’re booking a points break hotel. After 45 minutes on hold they offered the following explanation:
    “The points plus cash option is only on a PER NIGHT basis. Since the hotel is only 5k points, you cannot use cash and points for these points break hotels.”

    Bummer. I was hoping to stay 4 nights for 20k points, burn 10k of my own points and buy another 10k for $70

    :(

    I think people found this useful last time, I’ve mapped all of the locations so it makes it easy to find and pick good hotels:

    I’m really liking the Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach and InterContinental Hanoi Westlake this go round.

    There’s a good work around for this though, you just have to already have at least 10k points in your Priority Club account, or have a Chase account that you can transfer points from.

    HI Priority Club just issued new perks for platinum members starting in July, including free internet. For Midwest travelers Grand Rapids South has a fun indoor water park, great place to take kids for an overnight or birthday party. Right near Craig’s Cruisers too. The Holiday Inn Mount Prospect at O’Hare was on the list originally, and came down the next day. Luckily I snagged a 5000 point room before it was gone! Very nice airport hotel away from the crowd, but features nice rooms and a free airport & area shuttle.
