Just thought I would post some of the various promotions that keep landing in my inbox – I don’t know if I can take advantage of them, but I hope someone can!
Hilton – Headed to Vegas before August 31? Take 20% off room expenditures w/ this offer to stay at the Tropicana Las Vegas. You can also receive 4x HHonors points, but getting 20% off the bill is more enticing to me, especially because this brings room service down a more reasonable cost. Here are the terms and conditions.
Southwest – If you live in New York and want to go to Houston, or vice versa, earn double points with this Southwest promotion starting June 2! Best of all, you have to fly to the “local” airports – LaGuardia in New York and Hobby in Houston – which makes the transit process quicker and easier since there isn’t the crush of international traffic. I’ve never flown Southwest, but people love it, so if you need to visit hot as hell Houston midsummer, consider Southwest.
Starwood – SPG’s newest promotion is called “Double Take” and with it you receive double Starpoints from today until July 31, 2013. The full list of hotels not participating is here and there seems to be no pattern for exclusion. This is especially lucrative if you are a SPG Gold or Platinum member, as you get 6 points per dollar spent, rather than the normal 3 (SPG 75 night Platinum members would get 8 points per dollar). As Starpoints are extremely valuable due to the many aspirational properties in the SPG catalogue, this is my favorite offer on this page – so sign up (it’s free)!
I don’t get any financial rewards from any of these companies – I’m just listing these offers since people like to travel in the summer and could be throwing away valuable points or money without knowing it.
Questions/comments below or tweet me @WindowSuite. Thanks!
