For the past week or so, we’ve been discussing ways for you to earn Priority Club Points quickly and cheaply. To review quickly:
New members can earn 7.5K points with the refer-a-friend program.
(Let us know if you need a referral. We’ll get points too).
Your $100/month dining-out habit could yield 5k-10K points.
The latest promo for non-hotel partners could bring you another 6K points.
So, without ever staying in a hotel, you’re looking up almost 25K points with little effort and minimal expenditures over what you’re already doing. Then, if you do stay at an IHG group chain hotel, there are many bonus points to be had quickly escalating your totals. Now the question becomes, what do you do with all those points?
You could redeem them for 10k-40k per night depending on the property and how nice it is. But, even better than that, every quarter Priority Club places some of their properties on the Points Break List, where rooms can be had for 5K/night. Sometimes the properties are in random towns, but there are always a few good ones as well. And, the rooms aren’t all on the low-end either. Last quarter, five-star hotels running $450/night in Johannesburg, South Africa were on the list.
Check it out and act fast as availability is limited and once they’re gone, you have to wait until next quarter.
