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.
- Exxon Mobil
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.
According to this WebFlyer post, other Priority Club retailer gift cards will be discounted each week through Labor Day weekend.
