The Head for Points top picks for August stays:

Given the current lack of travel, I accept that this list isn’t a lot of use at the moment.  However, if you find yourself needing a hotel this month, you have four options:

Hilton Honors is offering 2,000 bonus points on all stays from 6th January until 7th September, with an additional 10,000 points for every 10 nights.  You can register here.

IHG Rewards Club is offering double base points on your first two stays, triple base points on your third stay and quadruple base points on subsequent stays.  The offer runs to 8th September.  You can register here.

Radisson Rewards has a new promotion, and I’m delighted to say that it is already our clear winner for ‘simplest hotel promotion of the year’. You will receive 5,000 bonus Radisson Rewards points on every stay before 31st December 2020. You can register here.

World of Hyatt has the most generous offer.  Until 15th September, you will receive triple base points per stay, plus any elite bonus.  This only kicks in from your 2nd stay after registration, unfortunately.  You can register here if a base member and here if an elite member.
