Priority Club Point Breaks

Being a Wanderluster and a frugal person for some people can be a funny match. Many people who know that I love to travel ask me where I’m going next. My usual answer is, “Wherever is a good deal.” At this rate I’ve got desires to see the whole world. Visiting one particular destination isn’t usually my style.

While many people don’t understand this, most of you probably will,–because you’re reading this blog. You’ve probably seen that Brad and I usually go random places at random times because the deal is good and we want to go there.  If the offer came up to visit Japan tomorrow for $50 I’d go there.  If someone offered me housing and a tour in Rio, then I’d find a way to make the miles get me there so I could take advantage of the sleeping deal.

In fact, this is how we came up with the Starwood Travel Loop.  We found that there was an abundance of category 2 hotels for Starwood Preferred Guest in the Alpine Europe area, and so we booked an AAdvantage ticket to get us there so we could take advantage of the great location of the hotels.  You’ve also seen us show you how to visit amazing sites in Spain using the Marriott Rewards Credit Card.  We’re also working on one about how to visit Germany using the most recent Club Carlson Big Night Giveaway.

This is where the Priority Club (Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Intercontinental, Candlewood Suites, Staybridge Suites,  Crowne Plaza, and a few others) Point Breaks can be amazing.  They are hotels that would normally cost you from 7500-40,000 Priority Club points per night, but instead are “on sale” for 5000 points per night.  They are released every quarter and have tons of hotels across the world where you can stay for an AMAZING deal.

Right now the deals are out and you can stay at any of these properties for only 5000 Priority Club Points through July 31st 2012.  One great advantage of the Priority Club is that your points will never expire.  You don’t have to worry about staying at a hotel every 18 months so your points don’t go to waste.  Their hotels oftentimes come with free continental breakfast, which is a huge advantage.  So, if you’ve been dreaming about steak for dinner and learning to Tango, then stay at the Intercontinental Buenos Aires.

Have you ever redeemed points for a Points Break deal?  What was your experience?  Would you do it again?
