It’s Time To Sign Up For Hotel Promotions

by joeheg

If you’re like me, there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Because of that, I tend to put things on the back burner if they’re not due right away. So I haven’t even noticed that the hotel chains have all started their newest round of promotions. As it turns out, not all is lost as many offers are very “procrastinator friendly” this time around.  Instead of waiting until the last minute, take a few minutes right now to sign up. That’s what I’m going to do. That way you won’t forget and end up missing out on free points.

IHG – Accelerate

This is the one promotion I’ve already written about. You can read this article to see the details about the lackluster offers Sharon and I received this time around. To find out what offer your account received, you have to sign in at the Accelerate website. Hopefully your offer is better than ours.

Hilton Hotels – Double Points


Hilton obviously doesn’t spend much time coming up with names for their promotions. I laughed that they even had to confirm this was the actual promotion name in the FAQ.

What is the name of this Hilton Honors™ promotion?
Double Points

For stays from May 1, 2018 through August 31, 2018, Hilton Honors members will receive double points per stay. You have to register for the promotion before checking out of the hotel (thanks for showing some love to the procrastinators there, Hilton!) You can sign up for the promotion by clicking HERE.  Full details about the promotion can be found on Hilton’s Frequent Asked Questions page.

Starwood – SPG More Nights More Starpoints

With this promotion you will receive 250 bonus Starpoints for every night at a Starwood hotel, beginning with the third eligible night, between April 16th to July 20, 2018. Don’t worry if you’ve already completed a Starwood stay before signing up; all stays during the promotion will count as long as you sign up by June 30, 2018. Full terms and conditions of SPG More Nights More Starpoints can be found on the SPG website.

Marriott – MegaBonus

MegaBonus 2018

Marriott’s current promotion uses their usual MegaBonus title. Here are the details of this current Marriott offer:

With this promotion you will receive 750 bonus Marriott points for every night at a Marriott property, beginning with the third eligible night, between April 16th to July 20, 2018. Don’t worry if you’ve already completed a Marriott stay before signing up, all stays during the promotion will count as long as you sign up by June 30, 2018.

Wait, that sounds awfully like the SPG offer. It’s not surprising the offers are identical because SPG and Marriott are merging their points programs right after this promotion ends and each SPG point will be worth three “points” in the new program.

A new twist is that Ritz-Carlton doesn’t have their own promotion this time but is included with the MegaBonus offer: “Stays at our exclusive luxury hotel partner, The Ritz-Carlton®, will count toward achievement.” 

You can sign up for the MegaBonus promotion by clicking HERE.

Wyndham Rewards – Stay Twice & Earn a Free Night

Wyndham Rewards is out with what may be the most valuable promotion this time around. Stay twice at a Wyndham hotel between February 5, 2018 and June 30, 2018 and receive 15,000 Wyndham Rewards points. That’s enough for a free night at any Wyndham hotel (if there’s availability),  The bonus is capped at one free night per member.

You can read the full terms and conditions and sign up at the Wyndham Rewards website,

Final Thoughts

Considering that some of these promotions run well into the summer, there’s some pretty good value to be had. I think the Hilton double points offer is the best one out there, which makes up for their previous Points Unlimited offer,

I want to get excited about the Wyndham offer but it would mean I’d have to spend two nights at a Ramada or Days Inn just to get a free night somewhere nice. Pass.
