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. 5,000 points is a pretty low redemption level 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) or simply buy them via Priority Club directly for .7 cents a point using the cash & points method described in this post (#7).
The list of PointBreak properties tends to be a little random, and heavy on the lower-end properties, but last winter, I actually ended up using a PointBreaks rate at the Intercontinental Phnom Penh, so I was able to redeem 5,000 points instead of paying the $150 nightly rate, wringing about 3 cents of value per point.
The PointBreaks list changes every 2 months, and though I’m a little disappointed by the list of properties this time around (there are only three in Canada, none in Oceania, and only a very few in Asia), it pays to keep track of which hotels are on it because you never know when you might be in one of these spots:
