One of the best deals in the points world, the 5K points per night Priority Club “PointBreaks” deals, are back today!

That means you have a limited period of time to make some points reservations at the old rates… Read the Rest.
Happy Friday morning! The new Priority Club Award chart is now live….and it is about what we expected. Bad. I’ve got a sick kiddo home today, so I haven’t been able to look at too many properties yet, but I did check the properties that I identified here as being ones to almost certainly increase. They all did. Candlewood Suites Times Square went from 20,000 to 35,000 points Staybrdige Suites… Read the Rest.

For those new to miles and points, massive overhauls to award charts are rarely good things. In fact, Priority Club just did a different major change to their chart only a year ago. Major changes two years running denotes a very… Read the Rest.
