In This Post

The following promotions focus entirely on those offering bonus points or gift cards and exclude regular offers like discounts for AAA/AARP members. The list doesn’t include offers on co-branded hotel credit cards, but you can check out the following links for additional details on these cards and currently available welcome bonuses:

Marriott

Despite some forms of travel ticking up, the world is still in the midst of a global pandemic that has grounded travel to a near standstill. That said, we advise against buying points and miles unless you have an immediate plan to use them. If you don’t see yourself staying in a hotel any time soon, you may want to pass on the buy points offer. The Courtyard promotion is pretty solid if you find yourself staying frequently at that brand and you don’t even have to register.

The best offer here appears to be the Elevated Earnings promo, especially if you have travel or essential business planned anyway. Meeting the requirement – two nights – before earning 2,000 points can’t be beaten. Even better: there’s no limit to the number of points you can earn. TPG values Marriott points at 0.8 cents apiece, which means 2,000 points are equivalent to about $16.

Whatever offer you choose, make sure to read this guide to learn everything you need to know about earning Marriott Bonvoy points for your next trip.

Courtyard Marriott promotion Earn 2,000 Bonvoy points per night on Courtyard Marriott stays in the U.S., Latin America, Canada and the Caribbean. No registration required. Use promo code 53M. Dec. 31, 2020

 

Hilton Honors

Hilton’s Points Unlimited promotion is one we’ve seen before, and it’s one of my favorite hotel promos because it’s so easy to earn Hilton Honors points. You’ll earn 2,000 points (worth $12) without having to complete a minimum stay requirement, unlike the Marriott promo which requires two nights. If you think you’ll have a Hilton stay coming up later this summer – and even if you don’t – it doesn’t hurt to register for this promotion. Make sure to check out this guide to learn other ways to earn Hilton points.

Hilton Points Unlimited

Earn 2,000 Hilton Honors points per stay, 10,000 points every 10 nights with new promotion. Register here. N/A Jan. 6 –Sept. 7, 2020

 

World of Hyatt

The 500 Reasons promotion is fine, but with such a low bonus I’d avoid chasing after it since you don’t need to register anyway. The Elite Member promotion is a great promotion – but only if you’re targeted.

The Bonus Journeys promo appears to be the best of Hyatt’s current promotions, especially if you have elite status. Hyatt members normally earn 5X points on normal charges, while elite members earn additional points bonuses. During this promo, members will earn at least 15X.

If you pay for your stay with The World Of Hyatt Credit Card, you’ll continue to earn 4X points, bringing your return up to a whopping 19x points per dollar spent before factoring in any elite bonuses. Make sure to check out this guide to learn how to earn Hyatt points on stays, promotions and credit cards.

Radisson Rewards

If you plan to do any international travel this summer, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t sign up for Radisson Rewards’ newest Dream Deals promotion to earn an easy 2,000 points.

Dream Deals promotion Save up to 25% on stays and earn 2,500 bonus points per stay at participating hotels. July 14, 2020 May 27 – Aug. 31, 2020, for stays in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean; June 10 – Aug. 31, 2020, for stays in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific.

Wyndham

Wyndham frequently offers promotions that give you even more points for your paid bookings. The current promotion for 2X points on stays isn’t bad (if you were targeted), but it’s only valid for three months after receiving an email from the chain and it’s capped at five stays. Unless you’re a serious Wyndham loyalist, you’re better off avoiding this particular promo and taking advantage of other promos like Hyatt and Hilton’s.

Promotion Details Register-by date Dates of stay
Earn Double Points Receive 2x points on qualifying stays, for up to five stays. Check here to see if you’ve been targeted for this offer. Valid for 90 days after receipt of email Up to 90 days after receipt of email

Choice Privileges

Similar to the Marriott promo, Choice Privileges is also running a promotion for bonus points after staying two nights. Choice isn’t known for having the fanciest hotels, but you can get rooms at hotels in its portfolio for under 8,000 points a night. You could also use those points for a stay at a nicer property, such as the Cambria Hotel Philadelphia Downtown Center City (20,000 points a night).

Promotion Details Register-by date Dates of stay
Bonus points promotion Earn between 5,000 and 8,000 Choice points after the second qualifying stay. Register here. June 10 – Sept. 7, 2020 June 10 – Sept. 7, 2020

Best Western

TPG values Aeroplan miles at 1.5 cents each, making 5000 bonus points worth about $7.50. That certainly won’t get you a ticket on Swiss’ business class, but it could be helpful if you need to top up your account ahead of a redemption.

Rocketmiles

This is perhaps the easiest way to earn 5,000 points or miles, as long as you remember to book your next hotel stay through Rocketmiles instead of your preferred chain.

Promotion Details Register-by date Dates of stay
Daydream promotion 5,000 bonus miles or points on your first booking anytime in 2020.

Existing Rockemiles members will earn 1,000 miles or points on every booking through 2020, valid on stays into 2021.
