Last night was the Frequent Traveler Award Ceremony and the results for the Americas were:

1) Program of the Year: Air Canada Aeroplan
2) Hotel Program: Marriott
3) Best Loyalty Credit Card: Alaska Airways Visa
4) Best Elite Program: United Airlines
5) Best Hotel Elite Program: Hyatt
6) Best Airline Redemption: Air Canada Aeroplan
7) Best Hotel Redemptions: Hilton HHonors
8) Best Airline Redemption Promotion: Delta
9) Best Airline Earning Promotion: Air Canada Aeroplan
10) Best Hotel Redemption Promo: Marriott
Specialty award
1) Loyalty Leadership: British Airways

Overall, a fun night with great TPG readers, but I disagree with some of the results. I feel like Starwood should have gotten something and that Hyatt did deserve more awards. Oh well, while the ceremony was a good time and it was great to meet a lot of industry executives.

Today is a luncheon celebrating American AAdvantage 30th anniversary and Saturday is Frequent Traveler University- a day of workshops to help people maximize their miles and points. A full update on the weekend to come next week!

    Amazing event last night Brian, great idea getting a group of TPG readers together to share in the talk of travel. Thanks again, I really appreciate the work you do on the site.

    I bet the DL PR department is working on a press release spinning how Skypesos is “best in class’ in redemptions lol.

    I do not have the Alaska credit card; waiting for the 100k offer to convert me;-)

    Again, very surprising results like last year. At least Marriott won only two awards!

    Points Guy – besides the $99 companion certificate you receive with an Alaska Airways Visa – why is it considered the best loyalty credit card?

  • Euan

    What was the ‘Loyalty Leadership’ award for?
