Priority Club Visa Free Night

The Chase Priority Club Visa is one of my favorite credit cards to keep for a long time.

We Used Our Free Nights Here!

That’s because the $49 annual fee gets you 1 free night, every year after the 1st year, which can be redeemed at ANY Priority Club hotel – including the more expensive InterContinental hotels.  You also get a 60,000 to 80,000 sign-up bonus and no foreign transaction fees for purchases not in US dollars, though there are better cards with no foreign transaction fees.

Emily and I redeemed our free nights at the InterContinental Thalasso in Bora Bora last year!

You have to book AND complete your stay within 1 year of earning the free night certificate.

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

But you can use the free night at any Priority Club hotel.  Priority Club has lots of hotels in the US, so you can often find a Priority Club hotel in a city which regularly has high prices (like New York City), or because of a special event like a conference or concert etc.

I’m not sure why the button says “check rates” when it says “FREE” above the button!

Step 5 – Book Room

Click on “Book This Room” to book your free night!

I saw the reservation in my profile and Could have cancelled it online as well!

Can I Use The Free Night For Someone Else?

Readers often ask if you can use the free night for someone else.  In my experience, you can usually book a room for yourself with points (or free night certificates) and add a note in the reservation that someone else will check in first.

You Can Let The Hotel Know That Someone Else Will Check in Before You

However, this may not always work, and as always, do what you’re comfortable with.  But it usually does work within the US.

It could also help to call the hotel on the day of arrival and explain that someone else will be checking in first.

Bottom Line

The Priority Club card was already a great card because of the free night each year.  But it just got better because you can now book the free night online without calling in!

How can I use my husbands reward nights for a trip to Orlando. He will not be going on this trip. Can I have him book my room using his points?

@Anne Palmer – You sure can!

Couldn’t help but notice that my cautionary tale about chase not honoring this offer was not posted. Anyway, this follow-up. I paid the annual fees for two years and was never provided with this free night. I called repeatedly to alert chase visa to the problem and was given the runaround for several weeks — the offer was neither made good on, nor were the annual fees refunded. I finally cut my losses last night and canceled the card. But be warned — do NOT assume chase visa will honor this advertised benefit. In my instance they did not, despite repeated phone calls.

As of 6/5, 80k bonus still working!

Quick question, do these points expire?

@Jessica – Priority Club points don’t expire.

Can you churn the priority club visa? I’ve got one and would love another!

@hpewen – The free nights expire within 12 months so you can’t stack them. But you and your husband could get a 2 nights stay each year.

Is it possible to stack two year’s worth of certificates for one two-night stay? (In other words, do the expiration dates overlap?) If so, that would mean that my hsuband and I could book a four-night stay every two years…?
