Hotel Chains Begin Rolling Out Their Fall Bonus Promotions

Loyalty Traveler does his usual thorough job detailing the Priority Club Fall promotion: 500 bonus points per night through December 31, and that doubles, triples, or quadruples if you stay in 2, 3, or 4 different Priority Club brands during the promotion period. Maximum earn is 80,000 points, and you can also earn 100 miles in your favorite airline program per night which doubles, triples, or quadruples up to 20,000 miles. Registration required.

Deals We Like details the fall Marriott MegaBonus. Marriott targets different offers to different members, though elite members can usually call and ask to switch if they don’t like what they’re offered. As with the current bonus ending August 31, one option is stay 2 get a free night, capped at 2 nights and not valid for redemption beyond category 4 (which is very limiting, fortunately I have use for a free Marriott night upcoming at an airport hotel). The fall offer requires paying for your stay with Visa. Registration required.

I expect we’ll hear news of a fall Hyatt promotion come early September (“Faster Free Nights! Faster Free Nights!” c’mon, say it with me, we all want it..).

Still waiting on Hilton HHonors. And of course, now that Starwood’s Stay 3, Get a Free Resort night promo — the most lucrative of any hotel offering so far this year — has ended, curious to see what they have up their sleeve.
