Today some of the best deals in the points world, the 5K points per night Priority Club “PointBreaks” deals, are back! While these deals are valid for stays July 1st through August 31st, you want to move quickly as some properties will be gone in the very near future. You can view the full preview site here. As of writing this, the properties don’t seem bookable quite yet at the 5k level, but I expect they will be in the near future.
If you don’t have 5,000 Priority Club points, you can transfer in 1:1 from Chase Ultimate Rewards. Normally that isn’t a great idea due to how valuable UR points can be elsewhere, but in this case it can make sense since some of these hotels can be up to 40,000 – 50,000 points per night regularly. Priority Club points are also for sale tomorrow via the Daily Getaway Deals (at roughly the equivalent $29 for the needed 5,000 points, but in greater quantities), so if you want to roll the dice that the property you are interested in is still available tomorrow that can be a good options as well. Here is a sampling of the properties available both in the US and around the world. Go to the linked preview site above for the full list.
nterContinental Athenaeum Athens (Greece)
Crowne Plaza Dundlak (Ireland)
Holiday Inn Warsaw-Jozefow (Poland)
Crowne Plaza Kathmandu-Soaltee (Nepal)
InterContinental Asiana Saigon (Vietnam)
Crowne Plaza Canberra (Australia)
Crowne Plaza Montreal Airport (Canada)
Crowne Plaza Belem (Brazil)
InterContinental Real San Jose-Costa Rica (Costa Rica)
Whether or not the list is good for you depends entirely on your travel plans over the next couple of months, and whether or not your plans match up with some of these locations. However, on the whole this list is absolutely better than the last few we have seen. There are a fair number of Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza properties, and more cities in the US that tourists may want to visit during the summer months. Hey Texas friends, Galveston for 5k points per night if you wanna head there!
