Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any hotels which fit in with my travel plans, and I’m hoping the list will get updated since there aren’t many hotels on it currently. But it could be useful for some.
You can get Priority Club points by:
- Using Cash & Points to buy points for 0.7 cents per point.
- Transferring Ultimate Rewards points from your Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus, or JP Morgan Select.
- Applying for the Priority Club credit card for 60,000 to 80,000 points. It also includes a free night every year, after your 1st year which makes up for the annual fee.
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.
Don’t count on all the hotels on the PointsBreak list being available through January 31 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).
