New Priority Club Credit Cards Come With a Big Bonus

New Priority Club Credit Cards Come With a Big Bonus

There’s never been more interest in travel rewards credit cards. That’s at least in part because the card issuers have never before offered such rich incentives to lure prospective cardholders into applying for their cards, and into using them. Capital One, for example, gave away more than 1 billion miles in just 25 days to spur applications for its Venture card. And Chase has reprised its 100,000-mile bonus for new holders of the British Airways Visa card. The offer remains in place through May 6. The sign-up offers for hotel-affiliated cards haven’t been quite as generous as those in the airline arena, but they too have featured uncommonly lavish bonuses. This is one of the most lucrative.

Offer Details

Chase is offering new cardholders 60,000 bonus points after their first charge to the Priority Club Select Visacard. Card details:

  • Annual fee: $49, waived the first year
  • Card awards five points per $1 spent at Priority Club hotels; two points per $1 spent on gas, groceries, dining; one point per $1 for other spend
  • Cardholders get a 10 percent discount on award stays
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Cardholders receive automatic Gold elite status
  • Cardholders receive a free-night certificate after every year

There’s no published end date to the bonus portion of this offer, so it could be scaled back at any time.

Deal or No Deal

I don’t remember ever seeing so many bonus points on offer for a Priority Club credit card. And the card is a solid one, even bundled with a lesser bonus. If you’re in the market for a hotel-linked card, this might be a good time to get one. And this would certainly be a good one to get.

    A great deal if you stay in PC hotels and charge hotel spending to the card on a regular basis
    The redemption benefits are good as is the sign up bonus
    Lousy deal for every day spending outside of Priorty Club hotels.Much better credit cards out there for every day spending and select categories

    Last fall Priority Club/Holiday Inn offerred a free night for every two nights paid for at a Holiday Inn. We went to Honolulu and stayed at the Beachcomber Holiday Inn for FREE for 4 nights. Our only charge was the $30.00 per day Valet Parking. I have been a Priority Club member for over 20 years. Holiday Inn seems to have the best Reward that I can find. If you know of a better one for the price and clean rooms, let me know.
    I regularly stay at Holiday Inns and have been able to book rooms that are normally $90.00 to 100.00 for 10,000 or 15,000 points. Sometimes 25,000 are required, but then I usually pay cash which for a room is usually $110.00 to $120.00 per night or I look for a better priced room at another resort.
