Priority Club has a pretty cool custom tailored promotion right now, entitled “Crack the Case.” Basically, you have to complete certain “challenges” to get a nice points bonus. Some people got insanely generous offers, while others not so much.
I’m somewhere in the middle, but sure as heck am not complaining. My “challenge” is as follows:
- Take a survey
- Stay 18 room nights
- Stay at 13 properties
- Stay 8 Saturdays
- Sign up for a Priority Club Visa
And my reward is 91,000 points for completing four of the challenges, or 162,000 points for completing all five challenges. I won’t be getting a Priority Club Visa, so that limits me to 91,000 points. Either way this is easy, since I have until May 31 of next year to complete four of the challenges. I’ll easily make 18 stays at Priority Club hotels between now and then. So dividing 91,000 miles by 18 hotel nights, we’re looking at a bit over 5,000 bonus points per night. VERY nice!
But what makes this especially rewarding is that this can be combined with the current “Sweet Dilemma” promotion Priority Club is offering . Through that promotion you earn a free night for every two stays between September 20 and December 31, with a limit of five free nights. So if I make ten Saturday night stays between September 20 and the end of the year, I’ll not only earn five free nights I can use at top end InterContinental hotels, but also be over half way to 91,000 bonus points.
