Priority Club made changes to what points count towards elite qualification on January 1, 2013. I wrote an article about this change back in December.

Base points earned from Qualifying Rates paid for hotel stays, points collected from partner transactions, PCR Bonus Points Packages and Meeting Rewards are considered Elite Qualifying Points and counted towards membership elite status.

Priority Club used to count points purchased through their Points & Money reward option towards elite qualification but discontinued it.
