SALES: Buy Points From IHG, Hyatt, Radisson, Marriott & Choice (Includes 3 Of The...

While only three of the major airlines are offering mileage sales worth considering this Black Friday, the hotel chains appear to be making more of an effort. With the exception of Hilton, all the major hotel loyalty programs are running points sales right now and most are well worth a closer look.

You Can Now Redeem Hilton Honors Points For Lyft Rides (But You Probably Shouldn’t)

Back in May Hilton and Lyft announced a partnership that allows Hilton Honors members to earn points on the rides they book with the ridesharing service and today the partnership expands to allow riders to use Hilton Honors points for their trips instead of cash...but don't get too excited.

Annoying: Marriott Has Made Suite Night Awards Officially Harder & More Expensive To Use

I've had mixed fortunes with Marriott's Suite Night awards this year with great success at stays in Sydney and, most recently, in Venice, but I've also had my fair share of frustrations with various properties choosing not to allow me to apply a Suite Night award to my reservation because Marriott allows them to opt-out of offering that particular benefit (the London Edition and the Langley both spring to mind). Now it looks as if Marriott has officially made Suite Night awards officially harder to use.

39 New Properties Join The World Of Hyatt…But There’s A Catch!

Hyatt's loyalty program has been expanding at an impressive rate over the past 18 months and after integrating 8 Destination Hotels properties into the World of Hyatt in August/September, and after adding a further 49 SLH properties to the program in October, Hyatt has now announced that a further 39 Destination Hotels properties will join the World of Hyatt in the next week....but this time there's a catch.

Why You Probably Shouldn’t Be Buying Miles Or Points For The Next 2-3 Weeks

Buying miles and points from the various loyalty programs can be an effective and economical way to book great value awards if you're prepared to put a little thought into your purchase and if you're not afraid of doing a bit of math but, for the next two to three weeks, it will probably be a good idea to resist the temptation to top up your accounts regardless of what deals come along.

Hours Left: Buy Marriott Bonvoy Points At 0.875 Cents Each (And Use The Higher...

This is just a quick reminder that Marriott's points sale in which it's offering a 30% discount on the regular cost of points is ending tonight at 23:59 ET. If you need to top up an account or if you need to buy some points to transfer across to one of the airline loyalty programs you have just hours left to do so.

ENDING: Buy Hyatt Points With The Best Bonus Usually Offered (And An Increased Purchase...

The latest Hyatt points sale offers World of Hyatt members the same 40% bonus that was on offer over the summer and, just as it did then, this represents the best bonus that Hyatt generally offers in its points sales - if this sale doesn't work for you its unlikely that any that follow will work for you either.

LAME: Marriott’s End-Of-Year Promotion Is A Snoozefest

While programs like Hilton Honors, the World of Hyatt and even IHG Rewards have all been running year-end promotions for some time, Marriott Bonvoy has only just announced its offer for the last few weeks of the year (and the first two weeks of next year) and it really wasn't worth waiting for.

Marriott Is Messing Up Points Advance Reservations

In August Marriott finally gave us some long-awaited news about the new Marriott Bonvoy program and amongst the changes announced was a change to the way Marriott's very useful Points Advance program works. The changes to Points Advance bookings were supposed to only affect new reservations made from 14 September 2019 but that doesn't appear to be the case and it looks like you'll probably have to call Marriott to get things straightened out.
