This week’s Deal Dispatch is focusing on current hotel promotions by Starwood, Best Western and Choice Hotels and . Hotel occupancy has been very high in the US and Europe and many other locations around the world, making it tougher to score a good deal for a hotel. To make the most out of your money, it pays to look for ongoing hotel promotions to find a good deal!
Starwood has launched a promotion to promote their newest brand, Design Hotels. If you stay three nights at any Design Hotel worldwide by May 31st, 2016, you earn one free night at a hotel in category 1-5. You can earn up to two free nights during this promotion. That’s a pretty generous promotion by Starwood standards – the SPG program is stingy with earning points through stays and it’s unlikely to earn this type of reward on regular stays. Check out the promotion here and the list of hotels participating to see if it fits your travel plans!
Best Western is running a partner promotion, offering 20% of regular rates for stays at participating hotels in Asia for stays through December 31st, 2016! This is one of the longer running promotions and worth checking out for travel in Asia. To participate, you have to book through the special site and pay with a Visa credit card…. or a MasterCard or American Express card… oddly, yet fortunately for us, they have the same 20% discount for holders of either card! You can check out the participating hotels and T&Cs here for Visa, MasterCard or AmEx! They have a slightly better deal for Citibank card holders, who get up to 50% off the second consecutive night (or a 25% discount on a 2-night stay)!
Choice is running a promotion offering one night off after two stays by May 5th, 2016. There is a little bit of over-promising involved here. You will actually earn a minimum of 5,000 Choice reward points and a maximum of 8,000 points, depending on the number of base points earned during your two stays. So, if you stay at low-cost hotels, you might only earn 5,000 points, which won’t get you a free night. The 8,000 points maximum earn will get you a free night at 1,500 Choice hotels – but the majority of hotels requires a lot more points for a free night. Still a good deal – if you have plans to stay at a Choice hotel, you should register for the promotion here!
So, there you have it. Between the three promotions, you can save some money by staying at one of more than 7,000 hotels, from budget to luxury! Good luck and safe travels.
