Hyatt Place $40 rooms? Expedia Member Sale Hotels up to 50% off

While I prefer to book my hotels through the hotel website, (Hyatt, Marriott, Starwood, Hilton etc) so that earn my loyalty points and stay credit for status…. sometimes the rates on online travel agencies (OTA) is a much better deal.

Expedia has some really great hotel deals right now.  While you don’t earn your hotel loyalty points on Expedia bookings, the Rewards program is pretty good. Sign up for an Expedia account and then join the rewards. Currently there is a coupon for $25 off $100 hotel booking and a $250 off a Bahamas 4 night stay. (See terms and conditions your on Expedia account under ‘Deals’ and ‘Coupons’.)

Some examples include Grande Villas Resort at $63 night.

There are some great options all over the world. I saw Bali for $29 on the low end and even some nice high end properties.  Definitely worth checking out if your are on the fence about which hotel to book for your next trip. Might even be worth a mini stay-cation in your local area.

Also noticed some All-Inclusive  in the Caribbean at pretty good rates. The list of deals is pretty long and may be more specific to your member account.

Have a great summer!

SPG Member Bonus Check your E-mail

Aloft Frisco, Frisco (SPG)
Over the past few weeks Starwood has been sending out targeted member offers. The first oofers appeared to be targeted to SPG Preferred Guests that hadn’t stayed with SPG in while. Of course I didn’t qualify for this because I am in the middle of a platinum challenge and have been booking SPG exclusively the past 2 months.
Then there were numerous offers following that targeted in some way to other members, again I didn’t qualify. I never seem to qualify for the targeted offers from any hotel, airline or credit promotion (hint Amex big bonuses).Finally… this morning… I get the e-mail. “Amazing Bonus Offer Coming Your Way” What? Really? Me? YEAH.

Here was my bonus offer.  Basically it is 4000 bonus points after each of the 4th, 8th & 12th stay. Dang, bad timing since I just did 10 stays in the past 2 months. Oh well. At least I was signed up for the double play during my challenge and it paid off beautifully.

You’re all set to earn up to 12,000 bonus Starpoints® on eligible stays betweenMay 1, 2015, and July 31, 2015.

Here’s how to do it: Book and complete your four stays and be eligible to earn 4,000 bonus Starpoints on your fourth stay, 4,000 on your eighth stay and 4,000 on your twelfth stay. Earn a maximum of 12,000 Starpoints.

Earning more Starpoints is that easy. Now, where to stay? Choose from our more than 1,200 hotels and resorts across nine distinctive brands wordwide.

Eligible member must register by June 30, 2015, 11:59 p.m. EDT. Member can earn 4,000 bonus Starpoints® after fourth (4th) eligible paid stay, 4,000 bonus Starpoints after the eighth (8th) eligible paid stay, and 4,000 bonus Starpoints after the twelfth (12th) eligible paid stay. As part of this promotion, member may earn a maximum of 12,000 total bonus Starpoints for twelve eligible stays from May 1, 2015, through July 31, 2015 (the “promotion period”).

Make sure to check your e-mail because if you haven’t been targeted yet for the new SPG promo… there is still hope.  Terms state this is “This promotion may be combined with other Starpoints promotions in market during the same time; however, earnings are exclusive of each other.”  with other offers. This is a good combination if you are considering a challenge.
