The Trump Hotels TRUMP Card Privileges program is the only travel loyalty program that gives you points when you don’t cross a border.
The Trump campaign on the other hand has rolled out a tier program. And their even running a TQD promo (Trump Qualifying Dollars).
Trump’s campaign normally offers Executive status qualification at the $100 spend level. However they’re offering a triple qualifying dollars promotion currently, so $35 spend is enough to earn $100 status. Similarly, when United’s minimum spend for elite status was set too high they had to run qualifying promotions as well.
In 2007 Democratic Presidential primary candidate Barack Obama launched the Obama Points program although it wasn’t clear what you could redeem them for. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is said to focus her program on Elite Access.
The Trump Hotel in DC, just a stone’s throw from the White House in the Old Post Office Building space is scheduled to open September 12.
Unless Donald Trump can do a better job pleasing elites he’ll wind up at the top of this hotel waving at Hillary.
