Priority Club Pointsbreak is arguably one of the best hotel award promotions. One can redeem reward nights at various Priority Club (PC) properties throughout the world for just 5000 PC points ( worth ~$30).
The Pointsbreak list is normally updated every 2 months or so and is valid for the next 2 months. The last time the list was updated, was on Feb 28, 2011. However the new list is has been published today and it is valid only till May 15!
Incidentally, PC announced significant changes to their program last month. As ‘The Nomad’, the most important change for me was the introduction of last minute rewards at 50% of the usual points cost. This feature is supposed to debut on May 6, 2011, one week before the current Pointsbreak list expires. Is this last minute reward feature set to replace Pointsbreak promotion?
The last minute reward feature can be good overall if a lot more properties participate in it. What would be your reaction if the last minute reward feature replaced the Pointsbreak promotion?
