[Update: Deal Gone 10am EST 1-16] Priority Club is obviously adjusting their hotel award rates. There are hotels that were 35,000 and 40,000 points per award night available right now for 15,000 points.
I just booked five nights in InterContinental Hotel for $350 + 25,000 points. The published rates for these rooms was over $1,500. The standard reward rate for these hotels was 40,000 points per night before today.
Check out LoyaltyLobby.com for a list of hotel award discount rates compared to the pre-Jan 18 award rates John compiled last Friday. Also, check your destination city for hotels not on John’s list. I found some other hotels at deep discounts.
This is likely a glitch and possibly may not be honored, but I am cleaning out my Priority Club Rewards account 5,000 points per night at a time.
Looks like my $70 Ramada Inn for Los Angeles next week is now upgraded to Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills for $70 and 5,000 points.
InterContinental Toronto available Tuesday, January 15 at Standard Reward Night rate of 15,000 points. A drop from a Standard Reward Night rate of 40,000 points on Monday, January 14.
Follow-up post: Hot Deal for Priority Club Reward Nights gives detailed example of booking Crowne Plaza Key West with rates at $329 per night in Ferbuary 2013 for 5,000 points + $70 per night.
