Priority Club Already Tweaking Award Requirements (Mistakes?)

40 Comments

Priority Club is set to change the number of points required for 60% of its hotel portfolio on January 18, 2013. Today, I received emails from LoyaltyLobby readers that they had already found lower points requirement for some hotels and there was similar reports on FlyerTalk as well.

We just went through number of IHG hotels and found the following changes that had been applied already. None of the prices in points had gone up but around 170 had gone down.

I have very hard time believing that Priority Club had intended to lower the price of the following three InterContinental hotels to 15K points until 2014. I would encourage you to book them now if you have use for them at 15K level.

InterContinental Atlanta 15K Priority Club points per night

intercontinental-atlanta-15k

InterContinental Toronto Centre 15K Priority Club points per night

intercontinental-toronto-centre-15k

InterContinental Toronto Yorkville 15K Priority Club points per night

intercontinental-toronto-yorkville-15k

Here’s the list of changes we found so far:
