MeliaRewards – the loyalty scheme for Melia Hotels – has launched an interesting promotion based around your birthday.
Melia has over 350 hotels in Spain and other (mainly Spanish speaking) countries, so this could be handy for a weekend break. They also run the funky new five-star ME hotel in London.
You need to join MeliaRewards first via this page. You need to give a date of birth that is a month or so before the time when you expect to need a 2-4-1 night. However, I don’t know how close to your birthday they send out the invitation emails for this promotion, so don’t put down tomorrows date!
The Loyalty Lobby link talks you through how to book your hotel. You will receive a free night on a minimum stay of two nights or more. Not all Melia hotels are taking part, but you should find something if you are visiting a major Spanish city.
Remember that Melia is also an Iberia Plus hotel partner, and you will earn between 150 and 525 Avios points per night. These must be credited to Iberia Plus, not avios.com or British Airways, although you can move them across via ‘Combine My Avios’.
