I love a great points deal whether it is related to earning or redeeming, so here is a pretty awesome redemption deal that I am excited about. For 24 hours beginning today (Wednesday 8/15) at 12PM Eastern until Thursday at 12PM Eastern several Holiday Inn Resorts will be available at half the number of Priority Club points that are usually required. You can find out more details and view the full list here. Reservations are available at half-off the going points rate for stays between September 4th and November 2nd of this year. These 60 days of reduced points are to celebrate Holiday Inn’s 60th year!
There are 16 different participating resorts in locations like New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Florida, Acapulco, Aruba, and Puerto Vallarta.
At 50% off the free nights are just 12,500 points per night. Priority Club points are fortunately pretty easy to come by. If you are starting from scratch with Priority Club points, you can transfer them 1:1 instantly from the Chase Ultimate Rewards program if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, Ink Bold, or the brand new Ink Plus. But also do some Googling to find some inexpensive ways to acquire Priority Club points. I recommend searching for “Priority Club points for .6 cents a piece” to get you started (though they cost a tiny bit more than that to acquire now).
Regardless of how you obtain your Priority Club points, this really is a tremendous deal if you have the flexibility in your schedule to take advantage of it. About the only destination I could realistically add to my schedule in the next couple months would be Galveston since it is within driving distance, but as booked as we are even that would be a stretch.
Even though my family probably won’t get in on this deal, I very much hope that some of your families can! Just looking at some of the pictures from the various resorts was pretty fun. There are tons of family friendly locations available! It isn’t all that often that you have many resorts to choose from at 50% off the going points rate. Double-check the cancellation policies, but assuming they allow for penalty-free cancellations, then it wouldn’t hurt anything to make a speculative booking now, then try to put the rest of the pieces of the trip together over the coming days and weeks. Remember, the deal expires at 12PM Eastern on Thursday!
