Priority Club to become IHG Rewards Club

InterContinental Hotels Group has announced that they are changing the name of their loyalty program from Priority Club (ironically the 30th anniversary of Priority Club is this year) to IHG Rewards Club. There aren't a lot of details yet on the new program but the announcement page has put out a couple of teasers of what you can expect from the new IHG Rewards Club program:

1. Free Internet worldwide for all members in 2014 but starts early for Gold and Platinum elite members in July 2013. A nice new benefit especially when 2014 hits for the non-elites. While most of IHG's lower end brands (HI, HI Express) offer free Internet, its the higher end brands like InterContinental where you can really get dinged. So it makes sense to join the program even just for the free Internet if you will have IHG stays in 2014

2. Fast Track to elite status when you stay in two or more IHG brands. No details on this yet. In the past it used to be quite easy to earn status with Priority Club as all points earned counted towards status but that changed earlier this year and this is probably why this new feature will come into play.

3. Like SPG and Hilton , IHG Rewards Nights will now count towards Elite Membership status

4. Like Marriott, nights earned beyond your highest elite level will count towards Platinum Elite status in the following year.

The new program will become live in July and once more details are released I will pass these along to you. I know many FFB readers are big time Priority Club players so I'd love hear your initial thoughts on the change!

Latest Priority Club PointBreaks Offers released (good to 6/30)


One of the best redemptions in the hotel loyalty program world is IHG's Priority Club PointBreaks and the latest set of offers are now out for stays until June 30. 

Why are Priority Club Point Breaks such a great deal? Because they offer reward nights at participating IHG hotels Worldwide for only 5,000 Priority Club points. For those of you not to familiar with Priority Club, normal redemption rates for Priority Club reward nights run from as low as 10,000 points for some Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express locations to 50,000 points for ultra-luxurious InterContinental locations and even these locations can participate in Point Breaks. So as you can see you can receive a discount of 50 to 88% off the regular redemption rates. You may be thinking that the high end hotels won't participate but they do depending on the time of year! Please note that like most loyalty promotions these offers are capacity controlled so I advise to book sooner than later to ensure you get the Point Breaks rate.
