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.
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.
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).
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.
