Speculation about devaluation to IHG Priority Club Reward Nights?

In the mail while I was sleeping was a mail from Priority Club, my monthly e-statement. Since there was nothing to reconcile, my eyes went out for the other big news that seems to have leaked out here, that IHG Priority Club Reward Nights will undergo a change in the coming fortnight.


The email stated:

Effective 18 January 2012, Priority Club will make changes to the number of points required for Reward Nights.

The email lead on to a link which brings me to the current Priority Club Reward Nights page.  However, nothing new reported here as of now. My sense is that PC might be changing the award charts and going for a devaluation perhaps? The Sunset that PC chose to send with this email clearly indicates in that direction also. However, on this FT thread, the hope is also that PC might start to count award nights for stay and night counts.

So, I’m now looking out for the changes with a microscope and cannot find any. But get ready for some not so nice news in the coming days. That said, I am happy to receive a positive surprise!
