Priority Club’s “Luckiest Loser” promotion

Gotta love some friendly competition! Priority Club is responding to Hilton’s recent award chart devaluation by giving everyone that registers 1,000 points, and the 20,000 people with the highest HHonors point balances 20% of their total in Priority Club points (limited to 20,000 points). The “luckiest loser,” or the one with the highest HHonors point balance, even gets two million Priority Club points.

The 1,000 points post instantly, and anyone can earn these, even if you don’t have any points in your HHonors account. If you want to take part in the actual competition, you have to submit a screenshot to them, which is easy enough (or if you’re technologically challenged you can mail or fax it to them). It’ll be interesting to see how many points are needed to be in the top 20,000. I can’t imagine it’ll be that many, given that not everyone is going to be taking part in this promotion. After burning quite a few HHonors points I’m still sitting at a little over 100,000 points, so I’m hoping that’s enough….

  1. heh, registered for Hilton just to get this, and still got the 1k poiints instantly. Certainly no complaints

  2. @whakojacko — There’s no need to register with Hilton. As long you aren’t a candidate for the “Luckiest Loser”, they’re not going top confirm your information. Just enter anything, and you’ll get the 1,000 points.

    I see your 600K and raise it to 800K!

    (Maybe my laziness/stupidity of not cashing in more of those points before 15 Jan will turn out to be a benefit rather than a liability).

  4. I was hoping that with everyone cashing their points, I had a shot at being in the top 20k with my whole 2000 points. 😉

  5. Glad to see others have more. I’m in at 450k but will have probably 40-50k more by the end of the month. I was considering holding off (and quite possibly forgetting) if I had a shot at the top spot but figured that I didn’t. Seeing others with more points means I at least don’t have to worry about that.

    I really doubt that I’ll need to have the additional 40-50k to make it in the top 20k. Its unfortunate (for us) that they capped it at 20k 🙂

  6. If you are sitting on 100,000 Hilton Honors Points, then you realistically have about 80,000!!!

    Hilton sure messed up on this one! Priority Club is the best loyalty program anyways and with the new Holiday Inn Relaunch… why not switch loyalty to a brand that has been around taking care of people for the longest!!!
