Ultimate Rewards offering 10 bonus points per dollar spent at Priority Club hotels!

Per Frequent Miler, Ultimate Rewards is offering 10 bonus points per dollar spent through InterContinental Hotels Group, which includes hotels like Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, and InterContinental. Ultimate Rewards is the points program for cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, which I’m sure many of you have due to the recent 50,000 point sign-up bonuses, not to mention the two points per dollar spent that the card offers on hotels and dining.

To take advantage of the promotion just go to your Ultimate Rewards home page by logging in and then click on “Earn Faster” at the top right of the page.

From there select “Travel” in the “Shop by Category” area, and then “Hotels & Accommodations.”

The next page should list the offer:

So just by booking your hotel through that link you would be earning 12 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent, in addition to the Priority Club points you would already earn.

Given that Ultimate Rewards points can be converted to British Airways,Continental, Hyatt, etc., I’d say that’s about an 18% bonus (12 points per dollar spent times 1.5 cents each), in addition to the points you earn for the stay anyway.

  1. Geez, and I JUST got the PC Chase card. Guess I’ll throw it back in the drawer now that my Sapphire just got a lot more lucrative.

  2. Following up to my previous comment, I think you still get to keep the points as there is no dollar refund, correct?

  3. @ abcx — Technically you wouldn’t get the bonus points since it applies to hotel bookings, though they may very well post anyway. Who knows!

    @ Gene — Yep, have to pay with the card.

  4. You DO NOT need to use your UR card unless there’s something specific about this promo.

    I’ve been using the UR Mall and buying Sears gift cards to get bonus UR points and meet minimum spend on new credit cards that aren’t even Chase affiliated.

  5. @ ArizonaGuy — Good to know, thanks. Out of curiosity, what are you doing with the Sears cards? Plastic Jungle or something else?

  6. Anyone have a clue how to use this offer when using an IC BOGO? To use it you have to book through intercontinental.com/ambweekend. Can I log in through the mall and then change the URL? Or otherwise make a booking and call Priority Club and have them change the booking so that it reflects the BOGO rate (which is the same as the best flexible rate)?
