Cheap Priority Club Points on Sale Today at Noon
Today's installment of Daily Getaways are several packages of Priority Club points. These points can be redeemed for all Intercontinental/Priority Club (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, etc) with the lowest Point Breaks hotels going for 5,000 points a night and the nicest Intercontinental properties cost 40,000 points a night.
As with the other auctions, these are being marketed as free nights, but what you are actually buying is blocks of points. Per the redemption T&C:
"Within 10 business days of purchase, you’ll have 10,000 Priority Club® points deposited into the Priority Club account that you provide at time of purchase, to use however you choose.
Once you have received the points, you can use them towards a free night by calling the Priority Club Service Center within the U.S. and Canada at 1-877-860-1373 or by reserving online at www.priorityclub.com."
10,000 points for $67 .67 cents a point or $60.30 if you pay with any Amex card, .6 cents a point.
40,000 points for $267, .67 cents a point or $240.30 if you pay with any Amex card, .6 cents a point.
$240.30 for an award night at high-end properties like Intercontinental Time Square, London Park Lane or Bora Bora is a darn good deal. Another thing to take into consideration is that Priority Club calculates elite status by points earned, so purchasing 60,000 points will get you Platinum Status, which isn't as valuable as the top tier of other chains, but still gets you room upgrades, late check-out and overall better customer service.
If you want in on these packages, you should have your browser ready at noon EST sharp, because they can sell out quickly.
