Via Mommy Points, Priority Club 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)!

The PointsBreak list is being updated, but bookings should open for these hotels later today, based on a post on the Priority Club community board!

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.

This list seems better than previous lists and I found one Holiday Inn Express may fit in with our plans!

There are quite a few hotels in Europe (Spain, Russia, Romania, etc.) which are available for 5,000 points.  The InterContinental in Athens and Bucharest and in Central America 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:

And tomorrow (Friday, June 28, 2013), you can buy Priority Club points from the Daily Getaways at 0.63 to 0.67 cents per point, so 5,000 points costs ~$34

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 August 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).

I did book via the IHG phone number: 1 877 424 2449.

I booked a night at a Candlewood Suites in Merriville IN, for 5000 points. Nice room. Somewhat close to the casinos in NW Indiana.

Is anyone having luck booking this? I am trying for one in South Dakota but keep getting a message saying reward nights not available but they show up as available on the rewards availability calendar.
