Kimpton is the very popular boutique brand that sits within the IHG portfolio and which, over the past couple of years, has started appearing in more and more locations outside of the United States. Right now you can save 25% off Kimpton's best flexible rates for stays into September 2021.
Rakuten's Black Friday offers are now live and as I said a few days ago, the portal is offering 15% cash back or 15 Amex Membership Rewards Points per dollar spent at over 600 stores. At some popular stores (like Saks 5th Avenue) the returns are even higher. With the stores included in this promotion also offering their own Black Friday deals, this is a great time to stack savings and to snap up some bargains.
Choice Hotels is currently running a couple of promotions that should stack together very nicely. The first promotion is offering between 20% and 30% off stays taken by the end of the year (US only), while the second promotion is offering 2,000 or 5,000 points depending on the number of nights you stay by the end of the year.
Marriott is currently running a sale in which it's offering up to 40% off its standard rates on weekend stays in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The sale runs through 30 November so there are still a few days in which to do some research and to book but don't leave things too late as there are a limited number of rooms available at the promotional rates.

The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are here and with new deals appearing every day this can be a great time of year to save big. The key thing to making sure that you're maximizing your savings is to keep in mind that as well as the discounts being offered by retailers and the travel industry, there are a number of limited-time promotions being offered by various credit cards which should not be missed. Using the right credit card in these sales can be the difference between a good deal and a great deal.
On 5 November we saw Rakuten offer 15% cash back/15 MR points at over 100 stores for one day only, the very next day it launched its highest-ever referral bonus, and on 11 November the portal offered 11% cash back/11 Membership Rewards points at over 250 stores, so November has already been a pretty good month for users of the Rakuten shopping portal. The good news is that it's about to get a little better.
Alaska Airlines is running a fun promotion for the duration of the NFL season in which it has been offering some fantastic discounts on fares out of select states. The promotion is built around the scoring prowess of Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, and runs after every Seahawks home game in which Wilson scores.
In a climate in which online shopping has never been more relevant, it's always good to see good offers for savings at major stores and retailers.
