Priority Club just launched a new promotion for getting people to book their hotels directly on IHG branded websites instead of Expedia’s of the world. You need to register for this offer at priorityclub.com/register and enter a promotion code 9983.
Apparently this promotion is only available for those that have their Priority Club account address set to United States or United Kingdom. You can get up to five $25 reward choice certificates that you can then redeem for number of different national and regional retailers. Your stays must occur and the online bookings made between July 1st to December 31st, 2012 to qualify for this offer. In the UK the offer is valid for 25 GBP Marks & Spencer gift vouchers.
After your qualified stay, the Priority Club will apparently either mail or email a redemption code that you can then use to redeem for your choice of gift cards at rewardchoice.com/redeem. There is no way to check, what gift cards are available using this offer.
As always with Priority Club promotions, there is a chance that the promotion won’t work for you. The system that Priority Club uses allows everybody to register and confirms the registration for the offer, whether they were targeted for the offer or not. More often than not, the non-targeted members that register for the promotion will eventually receive the points/certificates. If you have InterContinental Hotels Group stays lined up, it never hurts to sign up for this offer also, right?

Does the Reward Choice Certificate expire?
Yes, the expiration date can be found on paper certificates next to the tracking number and on electronic certificates at the bottom of the certificate image. Expired Reward Choice Certificates cannot be redeemed or reissued. Also, some individual retailer gift cards/certificates may expire. Please call our Customer Service Consultants Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Central time, at 866.601.5921 with questions.
Can I save up my awards and redeem them all at once for one larger denomination gift card/certificate?
Yes, you can redeem multiple Reward Choice Certificates. Be sure to enter the highest value first, this ensures you will have the largest merchant list to select from.
If I am using MSN™ Hotmail, Yahoo!® Mail, AOLSM Mail or GMail can I select a Virtual Gift Certificate?
Yes. However, some e-mail service providers such as MSN Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail or AOL Mail, allow users to filter out mail that might be perceived as ‘junk’ mail. Depending upon the sensitivity level that a user may select, e-mail from Hallmark Business Connections could be inadvertently filtered from an individual’s Mailbox. Since e-mail sent to them from the Reward Choice Certificate web site contains redemption information, we recommend that you adjust your e-mail filter settings to the service provider’s default or the lowest setting.
What if I have additional questions about redeeming the Reward Choice Certificate?
Contact our Customer Service Consultants, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Central time, at 866.601.5921.
