I don't understand how this works (even after reading Dans post).  I checked dates on the website and it says the hotel is available at 5,000 points a night.

What is the deal with cash and points AND the 5,000 points in your account?!  Im confused. Sorry

It usually goes for 25,000 points now on pointbreaks it is 5,000 points
Dan was basically explaining how to get around buying extra points for full price and getting them cheaper
it CAN be done!

How do you get around buying the points for full price? What does that have to do with having 5,000 points in your account? Can you use those for booking lets say 2 nights once you buy 5,000 more?

So, 5,000 points a night is cheap?

The point breaks and buying points are 2 separate things:
1. Buying points- The idea is to book a hotel worth 15,000 points a night (usually a holiday inn) using the cash + points option= 5,000 points + $60  and then cancel it.
They will refund you 15,000 points (IE: not the $60 but you just got 10,000 points for $60!)
2. PointBreaks- Priority Club releases every now and then hotels for 5,000 points a night (instead of the usual 15,000 - 25,000 a night)
so when you book one of those you basically pay $30 according to the above calculation.
 
it CAN be done!

It's pretty well explained in Dans post.
You book a points (5,000 points, which is why you need 5,000 to begin) and cash ($60) hotel stay, nothing to do with pointsbreak, cancel and you get 15,000 points back, your original 5,000 plus 10,000 for your $60.

Is $30 cheap?

The got me on 2 different mailing addresses, since the 2 emails were nearly identical.
I was even told by their fraud dept, that should i try a new account, it may last for a little while, but eventually they will catch it and shut it down.

I wish somebody here can provide me with a contact at priority club, that has the power to over rule the fraud dept.
I think it's silly to ban someone for life for such a minor thing.
