March 29 and the current list of 5,000 points PointBreaks reward nights ends in 48 hours with no new list of hotels posted yet.
Priority Club did a trial run of Thursday flash sales in February and March 2012 where participating hotels offered discount reward nights, but last Thursday when I checked for a new set of one-day flash sales, this message appeared instead:
Thanks for checking out our special One Day Only Hotels Deals. This offer was only a test, so we don’t have any more 24-hour deals lined up, but we’re using the results to develop new discounted Rewards offers for the future. In the meantime, check out our special deals like Last Minute Reward Nights and PointBreaks, or explore the hundreds of options available to you for redeeming your points.
The flash sales only included a dozen hotels around the world, but at least there was a long reservation period even if the booking period was so short that I missed a couple of the sales. These sales were up to 75% off standard reward rates.
I have an itchy reservation finger and several trips planned over the next two months.
I need some PointBreaks!
Last Minute Reward Nights should be back next week for stays Friday, Saturday and Sunday April 6-8 at 50% off reward rates.
