    After what must have been deemed a successful test last week, Priority Club is running another One Day Sale on award bookings for set list of 12 properties. It appears that they will be doing these sales weekly from here on out. The sale runs for 24 hours, all day Thursday, ending at 11:59 pm EST.

    You can see this week's deals over on the sale page here:
    http://priorityclub.com/onedaysale?cm_mmc=socialmedia-_-twitter-_-pcr-_-onedaysale_2.22.12

    Deals range from 50% to 67% off the necessary points to book and available dates are from March 1 to April 30. Hopefully some of you will find some of these offers useful.

    Me too. Too bad, as some of these are really great deals! It's nice to see that half of the offerings this time are outside the US.

    I really wonder what is the utility of this "program". Sure, it would be nice if one happens to go there. But seriously, 12 properties out of the thousands PC has? I just don't get it.

    I have to agree that the chances of a property coming up in a location you are planning to travel to are pretty slim. However, I think these deals could potentially be good for helping you decide where to go if you are looking to plan a mini-getaway with fairly short notice. It might be difficult since you would also have to find flights to most locations, but still could be an option.

    I don't disagree that some would find value it it. But from a brand prescriptive I see no real value there. The only thing it is good for is to say "look at all the options we have for reduce redemption." Probably good as PR stunt but not much more.

    Yeah, I am not sure what their business goal is with this program. I can't really see it helping their bottom line or getting them any new long term customers. With the limited offerings and dates, I don't even think that it will fill that many empty rooms. Luckily, they don't pay me to worry about their business plans and as long as they are willing to keep trying different ways to give me discounted rooms, I will be happy.

    If this was a daily special (i.e., new properties offered every day), it would make it more interesting.

    I really like the locations they picked this week. It's also great that we are seeing more higher %-off discounts. Only 4 this week at 50% and everything else more. I can't wait until a little later in the year when my schedule opens up a bit and I can look at actually taking advantage of one of these.

    Interesting. I have never seen these. I set the link as a homepage so it opens every day. I presume the same page is used when they DO have 24 hr listings. How did you come about finding these to start with?

    They sent out a tweet on twitter announcing the original test sale a few weeks ago. When that sale was over the timer restarted, counting down until the next sale. It looks like they are really going to do them weekly now. Hope you can find a useful deal.

    It used to be on the linked pages from above. I just clicked over to check and it looks like I spoke too soon with my last post. It appears that they have pulled the plug on these one day sales after trying it out for three weeks. Sad for now, but hopefully they will bring something similar back soon.
