If you booked a £20.12 hotel room yesterday (see this article – and the offer is still on today, although I’m not sure how much is left) then a) well done! and b) there is one other thing to consider.
If you are not a regular visitor to Holiday Inn, HI Express or Crowne Plaza hotels, you may not have joined Priority Club, their loyalty programme.
Now, in theory, the £20.12 rooms do NOT earn points – it is in the small print. Last time they ran this deal, though, some properties did give out points and call the stays ‘qualifying’ for counting towards status.
Just in case your stay DOES get posted as ‘qualifying’, you should read this post – ‘Why you should try to stay 1 night in a Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza or InterContinental each year‘.
Basically, there are lots of codes you can load onto your Priority Club account which give you a ‘one off’ bonus of 1,000 to 3,000 points. If you have never done a Priority Club stay before, or haven’t for a year, then you should be able to get at least 10,000 points for your £20.12 stay – assuming it posts as a qualifying stay.
10,000 Priority Club points can be transferred into 2,000 Avios points, amongst other things.
