Hyatt's current global promotion has been running since the beginning of March and with an end date of 15 June is still has a few weeks left to run. If, however, you have yet to register for this promotion (it's free to register), you have until the end of tomorrow to do so because the registration period is about to end.
Marriott Bonvoy has launched a new points sale promotion in which it's offering members a 30% discount on the regular price of points for all purchases of 2,000 points or more.
As most of you with Chase credit cards will know, for the past few years Chase has been publishing offers that give cardholders a small credit for spending with select retailers and, occasionally, with one or two hoteliers. Recently, a credit from one of these offers hit my World of Hyatt credit card account but, a little amusingly, I have no idea what that credit is doing there.
Hilton's current points sale in which members can buy up to 320,000 points is ending today (11 May) so there are just hours left to load up with any points that you may need at a reasonable rate. Keep in mind that used tactically, this sale could open up a world of great value redemptions, and that if you have any kind of Hilton Honors status, some of the deals that this sale opens up are nothing short of fantastic.
Registration for IHG's latest promotion went live earlier today and as IHG Rewards promotions go, this one isn't too bad. IHG Rewards members can earn up to triple points on nights consumed through the middle of August and holders of Chase IHG Rewards credit cards are being given an additional bonus. Read on to find out more.
Hilton's new big promotion for 2021 is now live and runs through 6 September. Unlike the promotion that recently ended, this promotion favors guests making longer stays over stays of just one or two nights so it's likely to favor the leisure traveler more than a lot of road warriors but, that being said, there are still plenty of bonus points up for grabs regardless of your length of stay.
With it looking increasingly likely that international travel won't be an option for a lot of people until July at the very earliest, and with parts of the world announcing new lockdown measures, Marriott has taken the positive step of confirming that it will be extending the validity of some Marriott Bonvoy free night certificates and the validity of some Ritz-Carlton upgrade certificates.
Earlier this month, IHG pushed through another unpleasant devaluation to its IHG Rewards program and, all in all, it was a very IHG devaluation - it was bad, no notice was given, nothing was communicated to members once the devaluation had happened, and the people in charge of implementing the devaluation messed up it up so badly that even the IT guys over at British Airways were left laughing. Still, now that the dust has settled a little, it's time to take a proper look at how to view IHG Rewards as part of a broader miles & points strategy.
Hyatt has been running its current points sale for nearly a month but with the sale ending tomorrow, there are a little under two days for Hyatt fans to make the most of the 25% discount that the hotelier is currently offering. As Hyatt points sales go, this one isn't too bad and used correctly, could save you quite a bit of money.
Back in November, Hyatt launched a promotion in which it offered 1,000 AAdvantage Miles per night for stays at select Hyatt resorts, and now that that offer has ended (it ended on 4 April), Hyatt is back with a bigger and better (albeit targeted) deal - earn 1,000 AAdvantage Miles per night at hundreds of World Hyatt properties around the world.
