The simplest way to look at points is as a rebate. You stay in a hotel, and you get a certain number of points back. The bigger, the tally, the better the rebate. To lure travelers into their properties around the world, the big hotel chains are all out with bonus promos bringing you more points on everything you do. Here’s a collection of pretty much all of them, so you can tidy up your hotel points earning in one sitting…
Note: you can register for all these promos, and it’s good to even if you’re not sure you’ll use them. You lose nothing, but if you end up staying, you’ll ensure the extra points are yours…
Marriott Bonvoy: 2,000 Points Per Stay
Marriott Bonvoy is offering 2,000 bonus points per stay, starting with your second stay for all travel between March 17th and June 14th. Over 7,200 hotels are available.
That’s not exactly run out and book everything exciting, but you’d be a fool not to collect 2,000 bonus points every time you check out, so register here. You must register by March 31st.
World Of Hyatt: Double Points
World Of Hyatt has greatly expanded its portfolio by partnering with Small Luxury Hotels, giving lots of new boutique options in addition to the usual fare. Starting with your second stay, you can earn double points from February 15th to May 15th.
Double points is quite lucrative considering how few you need for a “free night” at a top tier hotel. You must register by March 31st to take advantage, and you can register here.
Radisson Hotels: Tiered Bonuses
Radisson is offering some lucrative opportunities, albeit for a much more limited window. Stay twice, get 5,000 bonus points, stay three times get a total of 15,000 bonus points – all the way up to 150,000 points.
The catch? Stays must be completed by March 31st, so you’re on borrowed time if you want to take this as far as you can. Register here to get in on the action. Even two stays is worth something…
Hilton Honors: 2,000 Points + 10,000 Bonus
Hilton has one of the better promos in a field of mediocre promos, offering 2,000 bonus points per stay and 10,000 on top for every 10 nights. This even counts on your first stay.
You can register for the promo here, for travel which must be completed by May 4th. You can earn an unlimited number of points, including the 10,000 for every 10 nights.
Accor Hotels ALL: Bonus Points For Two Night Stays
Accor is perhaps the stingiest of the promos, only offering extras on two night stays, and forcing you to book by March 6th (tomorrow) in order to take advantage, even though you can travel through June 7th to earn the points. Yet it’s also the most lucrative.
You’ll earn 500 points (worth 10 euro) for your first two night stay, 2,500 points (worth 50 euro) on your second two night stay and 3,000 points (worth 60 euro) on your third two night stay. Again, you must book your stays by March 6th. Register here.
