The Miles Monster just tweeted me that Priority Club has released their new PointsBreak list for hotels.  Hotels on the PointsBreak list cost only 5,000 points for a night (the regular rate is 10,000 to 50,000 points)!

Priority Club Hotels for 5,000 Points!

Priority Club Hotels for 5,000 Points!

Priority Club hotels include Candlewood SuitesCrowne Plaza,  Holiday InnHoliday Inn Express,Hotel IndigoIntercontinental Hotels & Resorts, and Staybridge Suites brand hotels.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any hotels which fit in with my travel plans.

The PointsBreak list is in the process of being updated, but bookings should open for these hotels before 5:00 pm EST today, based on a post on the Priority Club community board!

However, you can make bookings NOW, by searching by city and then selecting the hotel in the “Reservations” box on the Priority Club website.

And you can check out the PointsBreak hotels in and outside the US on the Priority Club community board as well!

The Holiday Inn/Express in Krabi & Bangkok (Thailand), Jaipur (India), Sofia (Bulgaria), Istanbul (Turkey), Madrid (Spain), Fairbanks (Alaska) look interesting to me.  The InterContinental in Vietnam and in El Salvador could also be worth it to some.  And it never hurts to see if there are hotels in US cities which you plan on visiting.

You can get Priority Club points by:

Usually, transferring points from Chase Ultimate Rewards to Priority Club is not the best value, but it certainly could make sense for hotels on the PointsBreak list.  If you’re not averse to using the cash and points trick, you can use the cash and points trick to buy Priority Club points and then get a statement reimbursement of 1 cent per Ultimate Rewards points.  This is a better value than redeeming Ultimate Rewards points directly for Priority Club points.

Bottom Line

5,000 points or $35 for a hotel night is a terrific deal!

Don’t count on all the hotels on the PointsBreak list being available through June 30 2013, because hotels may sell out and can be removed from the list at any time.

It doesn’t hurt to make a booking using points, because you can usually cancel them without a penalty (but read the cancellation policy before booking).

  1. as of 12:37 Eastern time, it’s still the old list

  2. found it!

  3. I don’t see the new list (12:00pm central). Can you provide a link with a screenshot of the updated June 30th date?

  4. Horrible post! I wouldn’t pay $10 for 50000 PC points. 90% of its hotel requires minimum of 25k to 32k points or more a night.

    their highest level platinum membership DOES NOT even give you free internet. forget about free breakfast.

  5. correction, i mean I wouldn’t pay $10 for 5k PC points cos it is 1 number or number 2nd most devalued program of any hotel program.

    • @bluecat @Jason @kev – Very strange! The link was updated to the new link, then it went back to the list ending in March, and now is updated again! I restored the old version of the post which indicates that you may have to go directly to the reservation page to find some hotels.

  6. Holiday Inn at Istanbul is so far off the city. It’s actually not in Istanbul, in another small city called “Gebze”

  7. Its pretty easy to find a better hotel than Holiday Inn Express in Bangkok or Pattaya for less than $50, so I’m not sure that is such a great deal even at $35.

  8. Great info!
    BTW, although pc points are indeed not attractive, only moron believes 5k pc points worth only $10.

  9. @Daraius. Sorry. What do you mean by the following? “If you’re not averse to using the cash and points trick, you can use the cash and points trick to buy Priority Club points and then get a statement reimbursement of 1 cent per Ultimate Rewards points.” I am reading this as you can transfer Priority Club points to Ultimate Rewards?

    • @Sarah @SB – I was just looking at the cities which interested me and dig into the actual hotel location.

      @JMK – I’ll write a post to explain it, but I was trying to say that you should NOT transfer points from Ultimate Rewards to Priority club. Instead use the cash and points trick to buy them at 0.7 cents per point and then ask for a statement credit on your Ultimate Rewards card.

  10. @Daraius. I understand it now. Thank you for the explanation.

  11. Thank you so much Daraius! I’ll be traveling to Thailand next month of May and will take advantage of this offer on Bangkok and Krabi, I already had the Holiday Inn Resort in Krabi on mind before the offer came out and now is going to be even better!

  12. Thanks, Daraius! I was excited to find the Holiday Inn, Fountain Hills, AZ on the PB list as we will be there in early April! First time I’ve found a hotel on the list that I could use. I’m not sure how concerned I should be about the reviews on TripAdvisor and on the hotel website. They range from 1 star to a full 5 stars, with a TripAdvisor overall rating of 3.2.

    I have stayed in many 3 star hotels that I thought were just fine (I don’t need luxury). My concern is that there are some comments about an odor, which the hotel acknowledges and says is due to a city sewer issue but is only noticeable in a certain part of the hotel. Other reviewers say they did not notice any odor. Some complained about their room not being clean, while others said just the opposite. Some complained about carpet stains and that the hotel was showing some wear, although it is the third stage of renovation which is scheduled to be done this summer.

    Has anyone stayed at this property? i am wondering how concerned I should be about the reviews?

    • @Joselyn – Have a great trip!

      @Carol – I don’t have personal experience so can’t say how it will be. I don’t expect much for 5,000 points and I wouldn’t be in the hotel most of the time, so carpet stains don’t really bother me. The smell could be an issue if it prevents you from sleeping, but I’ve never been there so can’t really say.

  13. I checked on the two point breaks hotels listed in Thailand
    Comes up 5000 points plus $40. ?? What’s up?
    Thanks

  14. Hey Daraius,

    I’ve read about the cash+points trick, but PC is having a sale on their website (https://buy.points.com/PointsPartnerFrames/partners/ihg/container.html?product=buy) which is ending in 2 days. Anyway, if you buy 50000 points, you get a 50% bonus, so 75000 points for $575, which works out to .7cpm. Maybe worth it if someone doesn’t want to go through the whole cash+points routine.

  15. Daraius – Why is that the Intercontinental Hanoi (Vietnam) and hotels in Thailand no longer show in the points break list at all? Do they start removing hotels when they are sold out with pointsbreak reservations?

    Jim is a douche. Point Breaks are a great deal. You just have to be patient for a participating hotel where you want to go. Go spread your hate somewhere else Jim
