Per Frequent Miler, Ultimate Rewards is offering 10 bonus points per dollar spent through InterContinental Hotels Group, which includes hotels like Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, and InterContinental. Ultimate Rewards is the points program for cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card, which I’m sure many of you have due to the recent 50,000 point sign-up bonuses, not to mention the two points per dollar spent that the card offers on hotels and dining.
To take advantage of the promotion just go to your Ultimate Rewards home page by logging in and then click on “Earn Faster” at the top right of the page.
From there select “Travel” in the “Shop by Category” area, and then “Hotels & Accommodations.”
The next page should list the offer:
So just by booking your hotel through that link you would be earning 12 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent, in addition to the Priority Club points you would already earn.
Given that Ultimate Rewards points can be converted to British Airways,Continental, Hyatt, etc., I’d say that’s about an 18% bonus (12 points per dollar spent times 1.5 cents each), in addition to the points you earn for the stay anyway.
