Every three months, Priority Club releases its list of PointBreaks hotels. That’s huge news because you can stay at any hotel–any Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites–on the list for $35 a night between now and October 15, if the hotel has award availability.

Priority Club releases a PointBreaks hotels list every quarter as a loss leader. Instead of a normal 15,000 or 25,000 points per night at their hotels, for a select list of Priority Club hotels around the world, you can stay for 5,000 points.

5,000 points can be purchased for $35 if you already have 5,000 points in your account, which you can get in a 1:1 transfer from Ultimate Rewards. Read this post for a full explanation of how to get into any hotel on the list for $35.

Last list, I took advantage of a PointBreaks Holiday Inn in Krakow, Poland. I spent two nights there for $70.

$35: 75% off

This list, I checked my upcoming schedule, and I saw that I need a place to stay in Chicago and Pittsburgh. There were three Chicagoland hotels on the list, but none were near enough to the Chicago Seminars, so I skipped them. There were no hotels in Pittsburgh on the list.

So I’m sitting this list out. Is anyone getting a hotel for $35/night using the trick mentioned above?
