Purchase Priority Club points and get 50% more free!

November 16th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

What: “For a limited time, you have a chance to receive 50% more Priority Club points! Between 15 and 22 November 2012, get an additional 50% of the purchased amount. Don’t delay, buy today!”

Is it worth it?

  • These points do count towards your status
  • To buy 45,000 points it would cost: US$345 (30,000 + 15,000 bonus)
  • The other way to buy points then it would cost (but these don’t count towards status) cost: US$320 (10,000 @ US$70 x 4 +5,000 @ US$40 x 1)

When: 15th to 22nd November 2012

How: Buy now

    I jumped on this deal and bought the 40k+bonus 20k but currently my account only shows 40k. Is there a reason why the bonus points aren’t showing up? I’m a new member as well.

    @Cat maybe there is a delay in getting your bonus points because they are a bonus. Personally I would give the folks at PC a call and ask them where your points are.

    @lynn ain’t that the truth. The hotels I usually stay at upped their point requirement by 5,000 points :-(

    Please mind that from 2013 onwards, PCR differs for purposes of determining Elite Status betweeb Elite Qualifying Points or Non-Elite Qualifying Points. As promotional points, points vouchers, points purchase, points transfers, and points deposits, will be considered Non-Elite Qualifying Points and will not be counted towards elite status, for budget travelers Platinum Elite Status will be much harder to achieve. However, as points collected from partner transactions, PCR Bonus Points Packages and Meeting Rewards are considered Elite Qualifying Points and counted towards membership elite status, there are still options to gain Platinum Elite Status for those who are status addicted and don’t stay 50+ nights at PCR hotels. And for US residents there is still Priority Club Select Visa Card from Chase.

    It costs $309 for a room at the Willard Intercontinental in DC. Or 50,000 bonus points under the new, higher rewards nights program. So its actually more expensive to buy the rewards points and apply them towards the stay than it would be to pay for the stay and get credit for it. Sad what PC has become.

    Yes, I am extremely disappointed with increase in points required for one night stays. Also, we in Canada can’t get the high sign up bonus points like the US credit cards have. Am thinking Club Carlson and Best Western have better rewards thru out the year.
