The Priority Club Select Visa card is one of the best cards for the benefits, absurdly generous benefits that I like so much that I put regular spend on the card just to keep it active. The best benefits are Priority Club Platinum Status, an annual night certificate, 10% rebate on Priority Club award bookings up to 100k/year, and no foreign transaction fees. The annual fee is just $49. It would get a lot more hype if it paid affiliate commissions, but that’s another debate.
I received an email offer to earn 2,000 bonus points for $2,000 spend in 2013 Q1. Setting aside how easy it is to earn Priority Club points with promotion codes, surveys and such, the leading experts value the points at about 0.6 cents.
Nope, not going out of my way for a $12 bonus! And the bonus is effectively negative considering the opportunity cost compared to spend on many other cards.
Readers, have you received any lamer spend offers?
