Relaunches generally aren’t good news and often can lead to a devaluation to the value of your points. This article from businesstraveller.com doesn’t really give much away but starts of with a very punchy headline. The only point of interest is this part below, but generally the best value will always be redeeming points for hotel rooms.
She said while airline partners will continue to be added to the programme, a ‘flights anywhere’ function will allow travellers to redeem their points on any flight globally, and follows the introduction of ‘points + cash’, much like airlines offer.
Update: New membership cards are here although I can’t remember the last time I ever used mine!

Priority Club Reward points come to my rescue – I arrived home at 5pm yesterday to find my bathroom in pieces – the plumber didn’t quite finish the job as promised. 1 hour later I’ve spent in 15,000 reward points and US$60 and I’m checking in to the local Crowne Plaza – had I paid cash it would have cost US$300+ for a walk in. Great to get last minute availability for reward nights.

I’ve just returned from a brief stay here on points. I believe it It’s possibly the best value for PCR points in the system with the “suite” rooms going for up to US$450 per night – all for only 25,000 points.
Rooms are great, each with two flatscreen TV’s , kitchen area (although this is limited to a sink, fridge and a coffee machine) , balcony – although if you don’t get a view overlooking the pool area I’d ask to change.
Platinum’s can also benefit from free Internet access & the daily resort fee being waived.
