As travel picks up, we have brought back our regular round-up of the best hotel promotions currently running.
All of the information in this article can also be found on our ‘Hotel Offers’ page which contains details of all of the current offers, together with links to our major articles on each hotel scheme. However, a positive response from readers – especially our 15,000 email subscribers – means we run this monthly article as a handy summary.
Here are quick summaries and links to the registration pages you need for each offer – do it before you forget. Unfortunately it is a fairly thin list at the moment:
Hilton Honors is offering double Hilton Honors base points on all stays, plus an extra 2,000 bonus points on stays with a Monday to Friday checkout, between 6th September and 31st December
World of Hyatt
World of Hyatt will be offering double points on all stays of 2+ nights between 15th September and 20th December. You must register by 15th November.
Accor Live Limitless, IHG One Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy and Radisson Rewards are not currently running a global promotion. IHG has offered a ‘September only’ offer by email to selected members.
The current ‘buy points’ offers running at the moment are:
Hilton Honors is offering an 80% to 100% bonus when you buy 5,000+ points by 18th September. The annual cap is also doubled to 160,000 points plus the bonus.
IHG One Rewards
IHG One Rewards is offering a 75% bonus when you buy 5,000+ points by 10th September.
Marriott Bonvoy is offering a 25% bonus when you buy points by 15th September.
World of Hyatt
World of Hyatt is offering a 30% discount when you buy points by 30th September.
Current American Express cashback offers
It’s also worth noting the current American Express cashback offers which may be showing on one of your cards and which may influence which hotels you book this month.
There is only one offer from the six major chains at the moment:
- Get £100 cashback on £350 of IHG spend (luxury hotels only), expires 16th September
The offer only applies to a specific list of participating hotels in Europe.
Where should you credit your stays for September 2022?
Remember that, irrespective of the offers below, there is never a single ‘best’ offer.
Some offers require multiple stays to maximise the bonus, which you might not do. Some require stays to be a minimum number of nights before a bonus is earned.
You need to factor in any elite status you have, which will earn you additional status bonuses.
More importantly, you need to be able to use the points. There is no value in earning a large bonus in a scheme where you will never go on to earn enough points to get a free night.
That said, with only Hilton and Hyatt to choose from this month, it won’t be too hard to make a choice …..
Hilton (Hampton, Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria etc)
It is a two part offer, which is interesting.
You will earn double base points on all stays and a further 2,000 bonus points on top if you check out on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
You need to register in advance of your stay via the Hilton website here. Existing bookings count and all Hilton Honors hotels are taking part.
The Hilton booking page is here.
Hyatt (inc Alila, Andaz, Thomson, Unbound Collection, Miraval)
Between 15th September – so it hasn’t launched yet – and 20th December, you can earn bonus base points on your World of Hyatt stays with the new ‘Bonus Journeys’ promotion.
You must register in advance via this link.
You will earn double base points on all stays of 2+ nights.
There is an additional bonus of double elite night credits if you stay at one of 65 all inclusive resorts recently bought by Hyatt, but these are primarily not in places where you are likely to be visiting.
As well as Hyatt-branded hotels, it is also valid at participating M life Rewards destinations, Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels and Lindblad Expeditions.
The home page for bookings is here.
And finally …..
If you booking a luxury hotel, remember that we can offer you exclusive additional benefits at Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Peninsula and similar hotels.
