I have been advocating for long time for people to sign up for Priority Club and to take advantage of numerous promotions that they offer. Sometimes the response is that they don’t bother. Oh well. You can get the Platinum status so easily as Priority Club allows one to earn it entirely based on points. I don’t know anyone who would have earned it based on the number of night requirement.
So, I just signed up a friend for the Priority Club and he earned 60K+ points for 7 stays. In all fairness, he signed up for the Ambassador program along the way and got 5K Priority Club points voucher, but at the same time he is missing one 7.5K bonus for Roles to Rooms promotion.
Also, if he had signed for the Ambassador before having any stays, he would have earned more online booking bonuses.
Priority Club is very point rich program as long as you make sure that you take advantage of the all the promotions that I list here on LoyaltyLobby. You can access the latest bonuses here and here. Also, read my article about various Priority Club promotions and how they work.
