Through October 31, Priority Club is offering 1,000 bonus points (up to 10,000 points) per unique partner transaction. Registration is required. This FlyerTalk thread discusses some of the partner transactions that are possible. While Gary and Ric are fans of these types of promotions, I can’t say I am unless you’d have some partner activity anyway.
To me, Priority Club points are worth about half a cent each. Given that you get 1,000 bonus points per transaction, it’s basically like getting $5. Buying points is an option, but buying 1,000 points costs $13.50, which means you’d get 2,000 points for that amount. That’s still above what I value them. Priority Club is an e-rewards partner, but their redemption rates aren’t nearly as lucrative as Hilton’s, so you still come out behind.
I’ll take a pass on this one, unless someone can show me ways I can have partner activity for substantially less than $5 without taking up much of my time. I’m sure others will find this useful, though.
