Much like Starwood and Hyatt, Priority Club will also be participating in the “Discover America Daily Getaways” promotion on Tuesday, May 25 at 10AM ET. You’ll have the opportunity to buy 10,000 Priority Club points for $60, with a limit of five packages per person. Now, while there is a sneaky way to buy Priority Club points for 0.6 cents each, those points don’t count towards elite status. The points purchased through this promotion, however, should count towards elite status. Priority Club Platinum status, which admittedly isn’t worth the world, requires 60,000 points, so you’re almost there if you take advantage of this promotion.
Top InterContinental hotels cost 40,000 points per night, so at the very least this is a chance to get a real top end hotel for $240. Not too shabby!
I won’t be taking advantage of this (my Priority Club points balance is 200,000+), but I’m sure for some of you this will be a really good deal.
