Hello from Hong Kong! I see Dad has taken over the blog a bit while Kevin and I have been vacationing in Asia. So far we’ve explored Hong Kong and Macau, and now we’re killing some time in Cathay Pacific’s Business Class Lounge as we wait for our flight to Bangkok. It’s time to catch up on some points and miles!
Starting April 9, American Express and the U.S. Travel Association have partnered to offer “Daily Getaways” from April 9 – May 11. Every weekday from April 9 – May 11, 2012, you can purchase a featured “getaway” at deeply-discounted prices. Even better is that if you make your purchase with an American Express card, you can receive an additional 10% off.
The first offer, starting April 9, is 10,000 IHG Priority Club points for $67 ($60.30 using an American Express card).
To get early access to the pre-sale from noon to 1 PM, you can “like” IHG on Facebook where you will be given a special entry code to the pre-sale.
As far as the value of these points, as always, it varies based on your loyalty, travel plans, and hotel preference… but do know that Priority Club has just released a new list of “point breaks” where you can reserve a room for 5,000 points. You may find the complete list of the current Priority Club Point Breaks here.
Will you take part in this offer on April 9? Do you think 10,000 points for $60.30 is a good value for you? Please do share your thoughts on this offer.
