Re: Hotel cards that pay for itself.

A great article on hotel point values that uses priority club for examples: http://boardingarea.com/blogs/loyaltytraveler/tag/priority-club-points-value/

 

In general, changing UR points to priority club points is a poor choice, the exception being if you are using them for one of the "point break" hotel stays (5k per night). Otherwise, you are often better off using a points + cash option, using priority club native points and the CSP for the cash component, then using UR points for a statement credit to cover the cash outlay.

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.
