I’ve been a member of Priority Club Rewards for years now. Last year we were able to redeem points for a free night at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square. This was right around New Year’s Eve, so you know it cost us a lot of points.
Signing up is easy. Just go to www.priorityclub.com, fill out an online form, and you’ll get your printable membership card right away so you can begin reaping the rewards immediately. You’ll get monthly email updates with your Priority Club Rewards points balance, special bonus point offers, and other fun stuff. From the December issue I was able to download music, including the acoustic version of one of my favorite songs – Stay, by Lisa Loeb (compliments of the Hotel Indigo).
The Priority Club Rewards family of brands also includes: the InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, and several others. But you don’t only earn points by staying at these hotels – you can also rake them in by making purchases at popular online retailers, including Old Navy, Target, and Barnes & Noble, to name a few.
A unique feature of this program is that your points never expire. Points earned can be redeemed for a huge variety of rewards, including future hotel stays, airline miles, merchandise, gift cards, and even charitable donations – all over the world! You can save ’em up for something really big or use them sparingly to indulge in little things like magazine subscriptions. I just got my first issue of the Smithsonian Magazine that I ordered from Priority Club last month, in fact.
So sign up for the program at www.priorityclub.com. It’s free. This year Priority Club Rewards is celebrating 25 years of service by offering double points on each qualifying stay, beginning with your second stay, and through the end of December, every time you make a qualifying purchase with select merchants you’ll also earn double the points.
With today’s economy the way it is, we put a lot of thought into every dollar we spend, so make your holiday shopping and hotel stays count. Who knows? You may even accumulate enough points to get a free night or two at a nice hotel in the spring!
