Fall typically has a slower pace in the hotel industry as school is back in session, and this year, business travel may also be slower than usual. As a result, many hotel companies are turning to their loyalty programs to attract more business. There are numerous bonus point promotions, sweepstakes and perks that await travelers this fall, but many require registration before you travel. While many summer promotions extend into the fall, these are some of the newer ones to keep in mind for the season.
Choice Privileges 50 million reasons to celebrate
The loyalty program for Choice Hotels has hit 50 million members and to honor that milestone, the brand has a fall sweepstakes offer. It does not cost anything to participate. Members can sign up with their name and loyalty program number for a chance to win 50,000 points. Enter by Oct. 19 to be one of the 50 lucky winners to score free points to redeem on hotel stays (including at all-inclusive island resorts) or gift cards. Earn extra entries by sharing the promotion on Twitter or having a friend enter the promotion via shared Facebook post.
Stay more, earn more with Choice Privileges
Between now and Halloween, Choice Privileges members can earn 2,000 bonus points per stay on two-night stays and 5,000 bonus points on stays of at least three nights. Be sure to register for this promotion before you check out from your first qualifying stay. The program allows members to redeem their points for free hotel nights and gift cards among other things.
Hilton Honors Power Up
When staying at a Hilton Honors property, members will earn double base points on all stays between now and the end of the year. Travelers with a Hilton Honors co-branded credit card will earn triple points during their stay. This is on top of the bonus points earned for holding elite status with the program.
Base members without a Hilton Honors American Express card generally earn 10 points per dollar spent, but with this promotion, they will earn 20. Hilton Honors Diamond members with the Hilton Aspire credit card would top out at a whopping 54 points per dollar spent including the elite bonus points they earn. Be sure to register for this promotion before checking into the hotel to be eligible for the bonus.
Bonus points and room upgrades via Sonesta Travel Pass
Guests that book with this promotion can choose between earning double points and a room upgrade or earning triple points when they make a reservation between now and Halloween for stays until March 31, 2022. This offer must be reserved through the promotion website and is only available at participating hotels. Sonesta and the Sonesta Travel Pass program have been on a growth trajectory with CEO Carlos Flores saying that more is on the way.
500 World of Hyatt points at new hotels around the world
When you stay at one of the newest hotels to open in the World of Hyatt program, members will automatically receive 500 bonus points. No registration is required. The list of participating new hotels is available online. There are plenty of new hotels around the U.S. and the world where the points can add up.
Quadruple points at Avid Hotels this fall
When staying at an avid hotel, part of the IHG Rewards program, members can earn quadruple points. The offer is valid on stays between now and Nov. 30. The avid brand is a fast-growing one for IHG and popular with hotel developers because of its low startup cost and fewer employees required to operate it. Be sure to register for this promotion before you check in to rack up the extra points.
Earn up to 3,000 Marriott Bonvoy bonus points per stay
This fall, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn 1,500 bonus points on every stay. The promotion is valid on stays between Sept. 14 and Dec. 12. Registration is required before any stay, and the deadline to register for the promotion is Nov. 28.
Even better, when staying at an All-Inclusive by Marriott property, you can earn 3,000 points per stay. These include hotels like The House by Elegant Hotels and Treasure Beach by Elegant Hotels in Barbados and The Westin Reserva Conchal in Costa Rica.
2K Everyday at Courtyard by Marriott
Between now and Nov. 1, guests paying an eligible rate for a stay at a participating Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean and Latin America can earn 2,000 bonus points. This is on top of the 1,500 bonus points on offer in a separate promotion. No registration is required, but promotional code 53M is necessary when making the reservation.
