Priority Club PointBreaks to May 31, 2012 and Buy Points Bonus to April 30

The new list of Priority Club PointBreaks has been released for hotels stays through May 31, 2012 at 5,000 points per night.

I am now looking at booking some 5-night stays for the price of a single night at Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels in the western states.

I love Pointbreaks.

Good time to buy Priority Club Points

You can normally buy up to 50,000 Priority Club points in a calendar year. The cost to buy 5,000 points is $67.50.

There is currently a special to buy Priority Club points with a 20% to 50% bonus points depending on the number of points purchased. You can buy up to 75,000 points with this special offer.

You can buy 60,000 points for $460 with this sale or 75,000 points for $575.

Buying points for PointBreaks can be a significant savings on published hotel rates.

$786.24 is the prepaid nonrefundable rate for these dates at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Anchorage–Midtown. Priority Club members can buy 15,600 points for $162.50 and book Pointbreaks rewards to save over $500 on a 3-night stay.

And these rewards may be cancelled and points returned if your plans change.

Loyalty Traveler post –  Buy 60,000 Points for $460 and Platinum Elite Status (March 30, 2012) – this post explains the advantage of paying $77 for 10,000 points rather than $60 for 10,000 points through Points & Cash cancellations.

  1. Ric, isn’t there a cheaper (cash+points booking and then cancel) to get the points for 0.6 cent/point, making this a $30/night deal?

  2. I was just about to ask the same thing. I’ve done the .6 deal numerous times (just reserve a $60 cash + point room anywhere, cancel the res, and 10K points show up in your account). Pointbreaks are great tho. Just booked Hampton VA waterfront for Mem day weekend!

  3. @Jimmy and The Deal Mommy – Sure Points & Cash is cheaper. You can buy 10,000 points for $60. Some people find that an unethical way to get Priority Club points, but it works.

    The advantage of buying points through this sale for as low as $77 per 10,000 points is these points purchases count as elite qualifying points.

    $460 will buy you 60,000 points and Platinum elite for 2012 and 2013.

  4. Hi Ric, I have travel coming up in June first week and wanted to know from experience when do you expect Point Break lists to be updated for months of June/July. Looks like this April-May list was released just a day before the March 31st deadline on previous list.

  5. Usually the list comes out about one week before the current list expires. The latest release coming out the day before the March 31 list expired is later than usual.

  6. @Julie Blake – PointBreaks have been around for several years. The experimentation with Last Minute Reward Nights and One-Day Flash Sales may be an indicator that Priority Club is trying to move beyond PointBreaks. Or maybe not.

    Likely to continue to 2013? I think so, but only Priority Club knows.

  7. Just wanted to say THANKS – I purchased 60,000 points for $460, used them to purchase a 4 night stay in South Beach, FL using the 15,000 + $60 option – ultimately got a room worth $1850 for $700. Great deal if you ask me! I keep thinking I could have done even better (and maybe I could have), but this worked perfectly for our plans. AND I am platinum for the next year. It’s like a free gift with purchase! 🙂
