I needed to book a hotel room for this weekend, and in doing was reminded of just how many hotel promotions are happening right now! So in addition to the typical questions of where to stay, and what the better values were, I found myself wondering things like “have I registered for that?” and “do I need to book via mobile?”

If I’m having a hard time keeping everything straight, I figure others are as well. So here’s a roundup of the current hotel promotions I know about at the major points-friendly chains. If I miss any, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll add ’em in.

It’s Your Lucky Stay

Bottom line

What the heck have I been doing all summer that wasn’t mattress running at Sheratons?

Outside of that, it’s nice that so many of these promotions are valid at all properties in a portfolio — it’s always frustrating when a great promo is happening but doesn’t apply at the property I’m visiting.

Which of these promotions has been the most lucrative for you?

  1. Ritz Rewards is running a promotion thru 9/30 that appears to stack with Marriott new MegaBonus promotion that launches on 9/15.

    Essentially, if you stay twice at only Ritz properties, you will receive 20,000 RR points and stay another 2 times you will reach the cap of the promotion @ 40,000 RR points.

    Thought you’d like to know.

  2. RE: It’s Your Lucky Stay

    As I mentioned on the previous post, this is also available to holders of the personal SPG card. You may want to update your post.

  3. Tiffany, what’s your take on latest Club Carlson deal sending out free night certificate to members? Meaning, I’m a co-branded cardholder with Gold status and doesn’t seem like I received one like others did. My $75 annual fee is worth just as much as everyone else’s! I emailed Club Carlson asking about it and they didn’t even answer my email. Suggestions or thoughts?

  4. @ Mike — I’ve already canceled my personal card (so just have the business card), and I didn’t get one either. Which card do you have?

  5. Personal. Not trying to understand what logic they used if they decided to give preference to certain members over others, but more like trying to figure out how to properly push back and ask that they credit my account too, as it seems to be linked to having the credit card. Thanks!

  6. Can anyone vouch for the authencity of the link @Rico is sharing? Seems to good to be true. I cant justify sharing my password on a link that I cant find from the Hilton website.

  7. @Tiffany – I only have the personal version, so it must be an one or the other, but not both situation. AMEX being a little stingy not giving the bonus out twice! 😛

  8. Pretty much every HHonors promo this year has been quitd lucrative, with latest “global” being especially so and imaginative, since a targeted offer was buried within the “global” promo!

    Here are a few ongoing brand-specific promos they many of us in the know have been taking advantage of all year:

    Through 12/31/2015:

    Three Concurrent Promos for Stays at Conrad or W=A
    1. 5,000 Bonus Points for any Stay of 2 Nights or More.

    2. Up to 10,000 Bonus Points for 3 Stays:
    1st stay = 2,000 bonus points
    2nd stay = 3,000 bonus points
    3rd stay = 5,000 bonus points​

    3. 2,000 Points/Night​

    I would urge anyone interested in finding out every airline or hotel promo out there to visit the “non-partisan” blog, Loyalty Lobby 😉

  9. BTW, speaking of “lucrative”, the three brand-specific HHonors promo above are “stackable”, meaning you earn points from all three at once if you satisfy the requirements for all three, which one does with every 2-night stay…

  10. @Tiffany: “have I registered for that?”

    I *always* register for *every* promo that I see or read about because I *never* know if it will be applicable to me “somewhen” during the promo period. Takes a moment of time and then I don’t have to use my limited brain resources wondering if I have registered…

  11. Tiffany, you deserve a round of applause! Your charts/lists are so helpful. Thank you for putting several of them together over the last few weeks! Bookmarking this article.

  12. As a UK Amex Centurion cardholder I have access to the following hotel membership schemes:

    Carlson Gold Elite
    Hilton Honours Diamond
    Starwood Gold
    IHG Platinum
    Relais and Chateau Club 5C
    Accor Platinum
    Shangri-La Diamond
