    Agreed. interesting concept, but will be a lot more useful with a broader selection of properties. And, I hope this doesn't replace point breaks!

    Indeed, that's one fear I have. This program sounds great, but the locations should be much more diverse in the future and should be complimentary to Pointbreaks and hopefully not seen as a replacement.

    Interesting idea - but poor execution, only so few properties.

    Hopefully since it's so few properties they do it often, like every week!

    It does say on the top of the page that these are "This Week's Deals" so hopefully we will see new ones every week. I also hope it doesn't replace Points Breaks as I have been able to get some great deals through that program.

    The PC representative on FT said it will not replace any other specials in place (like PB). Let's hope it will be the case.

    They have yet not finalized their earlier experiment with half-priced reward nights on the first weekend of every month. And here they are with another pilot. I wish I knew what are they thinking!

    Thanks for posting. I like how the site has a countdown until next sale (useful for those of us in different timezones).

    i saw 12 or so properties on a different setup a week or so ago. i thought there was one from panama on it. looking at this list, there are only 3 (one of which being panama). same list, except all the others are gone? If it is indeed only 3, that's not very enticing

    The PC rep also said this new promo is not replacing the Last Minute Awards:

    "I wanted to let you know that this program will not be replacing any of our existing programs including Last Minute Reward Nights, or Point Breaks.
    Carolyn"

    I feel it's very nice of PC to offer more and more ways to redeem our points at a discount. Not everyone is going to like or use a particular promo, but the fact they are offering a diversity of promos is a big plus in my book. thumbs-up.gif

    They show that the next sale will be on March 1st. So it looks like they're going to be offering different properties weekly? That should keep it interesting. Hopefully they continue with a good mix of IC, CP, HI/HIX locations.

    The three listed are just examples of past deals. The new deal list will go live Thursday at 12:01 AM. Now I just have to remember to stay up so I can check on the new deals.

    I tend to agree. Too many programs like that without a coherent common thread are just too confusion to the consumer. Seems to me that they are testing many programs "live."
