3RD QTR PRIORITY CLUB POINT BREAKS LIST – JUST RELEASED
Priority Club has unofficially released their latest Point Breaks list via their Priority Club Connect website. These great point redemption nights for only 5,000 points a night are valid for reservations through October 31, 2013. They will be available to book on Monday, August 26, 2013. Be sure to check this list to see if any hotels fit into your next travel adventure. How about Vienna, Athens, Madrid, or Bangkok only 5,000 points per night. There are a lot of great international locations on this list. Book them quickly before they disappear.
If you aren’t familiar with the PointBreak list, you definitely want to know about it. The PointBreak list is released quarterly by Priority Club. This is a list of properties that can be booked for only 5,000 points for a night. Normally Priority Club hotels can range from 10,000 to 50,000 points per night. So this is an incredible point savings if you find a property you like. Properties disappear as they are booked up so don’t delaying in making a reservation if you see something you are interested in. Remember the great thing with Priority Club points (and most all other hotel points) you can book and just cancel if you find something better in the future. You are not locked in with change fees like airline miles. Even if you are not sure yet if you can make a trip work just book the nights and figure the rest out later. Whenever you cancel a Priority Club reservation your points are deposited back into your account immediately so you could re-book right away. There are no penalties as with airlines and miles redemptions.
Priority Club is one of my favorite loyalty brands for affordable nights traveling with a family. We usually stretch our points and stay at a Holiday Inn. They are generally clean and work as the perfect crash pad for the family after a long day of adventure. I save the luxury stays for the hubby and I who truly appreciate all frills. The kiddos could careless. They love the pool and the buffet breakfast. They especially love the waffle makers. Those are always fun. The breakfast isn’t grand but works with kids to get you off and going quickly in the morning without having to find a place for breakfast. I also have to add that I’m very happy with the ease of the Priority Club mobile app. I just recently book a reservation on my iPhone with points that took me five minutes and we checked into the hotel 2 hours later. The process was smooth and easy thanks to their great app. You can download it here for free and try it out. I also use the Award Wallet app which is my go to app always when I’m on the go. I log into Award Wallet on my iPhone and then simply click on Priority Club (or whatever account I need) and it automatically logs me in as it does when you use their service online. Award Wallet is one of the most used apps on my iPhone. If you aren’t using Award Wallet to track all your loyalty brand accounts, I highly recommend you do. Check them out here: www.awardwallet.com
Another great program to know about with Priority Club is Last Minute Rewards. Last Minute Reward Nights allows you to redeem 50% fewer points for travel during the first full weekend of each month at select InterContinental Hotels Group properties worldwide.
Sample Last Minute Reward Night savings
This offer is available on travel during the first full weekend of every month (the first full Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each month).
To get the Last Minute Reward deal you must redeem points for Last Minute Reward Nights on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday proceeding the first full weekend of every month. Then choose to stay that Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday nights.
For those who love to get up and go last minutes these award nights can be a real savings too. Just wanted to make you aware of this part of the Priority Club program. Points and cash redemption is also available. So you have many options of how to stretch your points with Priority Club.
