Hilton has extended their ever popular double points offer, which will now run through September 9th, 2018. If you have any upcoming Hilton stays, or plan to book some, registering for the offer will score you double points. Yes, that means instead of the usual 10 points per dollar earned when you stay at Hilton, you’ll earn 20 points per dollar! If you were to spend $100, you’d g 2,000 points. If you were to pend $1,000, you’d earn 20,000 points. Here’s the link to register for the offer. Note: the double points count for stays completed by September 9th.

Hyatt Double Elite Status Credits

If there was a contest for “coolest” chain hotel brand, it would undoubtedly be Andaz. The high end Hyatt brand offers a quirky, more boutique approach to great sleeps around the world, and if you engage with the brand, you’ll be rewarded with 2 night credits for every night you stay thru August 31st. That’s right: you get credit for staying two nights, every time you stay one. Double the pleasure, double the fun. If you stayed 30 nights between now and August 31st, you’d achieve the highest Hyatt elite guest tier of “Globalist”. Earning anything twice as fast is nice. You don’t even need to register, just book an Andaz stay directly with Hyatt.
