Global relaunch for Priority Rewards

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!

    The flights anywhere option has been around for awhile now on the Priority Club site (including the points+cash option), so I am not sure why she is stating this will be something new.

    Maybe it will be like Marriott with vacation packages or SPG with Nights & Flights where you get a coupon for X nights and then X number of miles to transfer to a program of your choice. Just a thought.

    Cheers.

    I think the best use of points and miles is to use points/miles where you earn. no transfer between points to miles or miles to points.
