Priority Club 4 days only 25% discount on gas gift cards

Priority Club has a Memorial Day weekend special over the next four days, May 25-28, to redeem points for gas gift cards at a 25% discount. Three gas retailers participate. Each gas company has their own gift card so you must choose your pumping preference.

    • Chevron
    • Exxon Mobil
    • Sunoco

 

GAS Gift Card Denominations and point redemption values:

$25 Gas Card = 8,250 points (regularly 11,000 points)

  • Redemption value = $3.03 per 1,000 points.

$50 Gas Card = 15,000 points (regularly 20,000 points)

  • Redemption value = $3.33 per 1,000 points.

$100 Gas Card = 28,500 points (regularly 38,000 points)

  • Redemption value = $3.51 per 1,000 points.

$200 Gas Card = 55,500 points (regularly 74,000 points)

  • Redemption value = $3.60 per 1,000 points.

These redemption values are likely far less than you will get with a hotel room redemption where you are likely to get at least $5.00 to $6.00 or more per 1,000 points, but if you have plenty of Priority Club points and need to save cash on gas, then these values are reasonable redemption rates.

I redeemed 15,000 points for $500 in room savings this week when the new PointBreaks list came out for stays through July 31, 2012. That is $33.33 per 1,000 points redemption value for 10x the gas card rate.

I’ll pay $100 cash for my gas driving to my Priority Club PointBreaks hotel stay in July.

  1. Not sure of the T&C but you might receive a 10% redemption rebate on these if a Priority Club VISA cardholder. Just something to add to the equation.

  2. @Patrick – good note since I never thought of the 10% rebate on gift cards as a Priority Club Visa member making this deal a little better.

    For readers – Priority Club Visa cardmembers get a 10% rebate on all Priority Club points redeemed for the year, up to 100,000 points rebate.

    “10% Rebate
    Please allow 4 to 6 weeks after Reward Night stay for rebated points to be deposited into your account, and 4 to 6 weeks after date of redemption for all other (non-Reward Night) redemption items. Maximum number of points to be rebated not to exceed 100,000 points in a calendar year. Priority Club reserves the right to reverse rebated points when redemption item has been returned. In order to receive points for redemption rebates, you must be a U.S. Priority Club Select Visa Card holder and your Priority Club Rewards account must be in good standing. Chase is not responsible for offer fulfillment.”
