Why You Should Sign Up For Hotel Programs Before Booking Your Room

l’ve already posted about how you can sign up for hotel programs and, not surprisingly, I’ve certainly signed up for quite a few. In fact, when I look at AwardWallet, I see that I have accounts with these hotel programs:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest
  • Marriott Rewards
  • Hilton Honors
  • World of Hyatt
  • IHG Rewards Club
  • Le Club Accorhotels
  • Wyndham Rewards
  • Choice Privileges
  • La Quinta Rewards
  • M Life (MGM Resorts)
  • Kimpton Karma Rewards

I’ll freely admit that I wasn’t enrolled in the last two programs on this list until this week. I signed up for them because I was staying, or thinking about staying, in hotels belonging Continue reading “Why You Should Sign Up For Hotel Programs Before Booking Your Room”

Have You Checked Your AMEX Offers?

I have to admit, I’ve been a bit lax in looking at my AMEX offers. These offers are one of the best ways to offset the annual fees that many American Express cards charge so ignoring them is like walking away from free money. I checked today and found several offers that I should be able to take advantage of without much effort. I’m also kicking myself because I cost myself money by not checking sooner.  Continue reading “Have You Checked Your AMEX Offers?”

Earn Extra IHG Points For Staying At A Kimpton Hotel

Check your email because both Sharon and I received a message from IHG that offered 10,000 bonus Rewards Club points for our next Kimpton stay. The email also reminded us that the offer can stack on top of the current Accelerate promotion (you’ve already signed up for that one, I hope).

IHG just merged Kimpton hotels into the Rewards Club program earlier this year so this is apparently a push to get IHG Rewards Club members to look into booking Kimpton hotels. 10,000 Rewards Club points isn’t much towards a high end IHG hotel but it could get you a free night at many of the current PointBreaks hotels. The ability to stack this with the current Accelerate promotion might make it worthwhile to look at the prices of Kimpton hotels if you’re traveling where they are located.  Continue reading “Earn Extra IHG Points For Staying At A Kimpton Hotel”
