This promotion can be very lucrative if you have plans to stay at a Kimpton hotel this year.

Widespread award availability to a reopening London, including business class

In a recent hunt for award space, TPG’s Benji Stawski found that there’s fairly widespread award space from the U.S. to London, including in premium cabins.

There’s availability from when London reopens in August through the end of the calendar, though you’ll find the lowest rates in late summer and early spring of next year. Most space is from the East Coast, but you can find saver-level space from other parts of the U.S. as well. Airlines include American, Delta, United, British Airways and more.

When paying the taxes and fees on your award ticket, be sure to use a credit card that earns additional points on airfare purchases and offers travel protection if anything goes wrong.

Rare availability: Conrad Bora Bora Nui award space wide open through March 2022

If you’ve been wanting to head to Bora Bora using your points, now might be the day to book.

There is currently wide open award space at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui from just 89,000 Hilton Honors points per night, reports Arghandewal. This is a notoriously difficult property to book with points, with availability at the lower point rates typically quite scarce. However, through May 2022, you can book this resort on many dates for just 89,000 Hilton points per night.

Add in the fifth-night-free benefit and the average price for a five-night stay drops to 71,200 points per night. You’ll want to act quickly because there’s no telling how long this availability will be around.
