Dang it! There was a Crown Plaza in Bucks County PA that was available for 5,000. It was originally on the Pointbreaks list, then it got taken off, but when going to the hotels page it still showed as bookable for 5K. I transferred UR, and it took almost 24 hours to transfer by which time the hotel went back up to 20K :(

PC hotels don't generally care about your status.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Aw shucks, that sucks :'( Do we have a list somewhere here with transfer times for each of the UR partners?  (anyone know enough to compile one?)

No, though we have one for SPG and for Amex MR.
When I did the transfer yesterday, the confirmation said the points will transfer on Aug 2nd (same day).
On the UR page where you request the transfer it says:
"Most point transfer orders will process by the next business day, but in some instances it may take up to a week."

:(  Oh well, I'll use it one day down the road when a new pointbreaks comes out.

Use it to get them to give you some courtesy points as compensation :)

They claim that it was never on the Pointbreaks list. (Not true!). I had paid $70 to get another 10K points (via reserving C&P and canceling) so I got them to refund the $70 and take back the 10K - didn't 'earn' anything but at least I don't have $70 locked in in case I never end up using them again.

I just got a bag of popcorn, bottle of Perrier, and a chocolate bar (don't remember which) at CP Engelwood for being Gold

Awesome!  I sent them a SM complaining that I transferred 5K to pointbreaks, and ended up not being able to book.

Thank you for contacting Chase.
I have reinstated 5,000 points as courtesy for any
mis-information that you may have received. The points are
available immediately for your redemption.
If you have any further questions, please reply using the
Secure Message Center.
Thank you,
:)
