Priority Club Discounts Summer Award Stays With PointBreaks

Priority Club Rewards has released its list of PointBreaks hotels available for booking for just 5,000 points per night through July 30.

The extension of PointBreaks availability through mid-summer puts to rest, at least for now, the speculation that Priority Club’s new Last Minute Reward Nights would supplant PointBreaks as the program’s sole channel for selectively discounting award nights at low-demand properties.

But the issue isn’t dead. I recently queried Priority Club management on PointBreaks’ future and received no response. It remains to be seen what that silence portends.

Offer Details

Through July 30, Priority Club members can book award nights for 5,000 points at around 130 hotels. Prices for Priority Club award nights normally start at 10,000 points, so the PointBreaks rate is a discount of at least 50 percent.

Almost 80 of this quarter’s PointBreaks hotels are in the U.S. Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels abound, but there are a few Crowne Plazas in the mix as well. The only InterContinental listed is in Egypt.

Deal or No Deal

As always, PointBreaks represent a significant savings, definitely worth taking advantage of if you can find a participating hotel that meets your needs. And because the discounts are in effect for almost three months, there’s even time to cobble together an opportunistic trip around a PointBreaks stay—something that’s not practical with the Last Minute Reward Nights.

But room nights available at the PointBreaks rate are limited, so act quickly to lock in a deal that works for you.

Have you ever made a trip just to take advantage of a PointBreaks discount?
