The Head for Points top picks for January stays:

You have three good options at the moment, although the IHG deal does not begin until 15th January:

IHG is bringing back a version of its Accelerate promotion.  Everyone gets different personalised targets and, in general, they seem more generous this quarter than they have for a while.  You need to hit your targets between 15th January and 30th April.  You can register here.

Hilton‘s latest offer is worth 2,000 bonus points per stay, with an extra 10,000 points for every five stays or ten nights – register here.

Marriott / Starwood is offering 2,000 bonus points for every 2+ night stay plus additional bonuses for staying at different hotel brands.  The offer runs all month but registration is now closed.

There is nothing happening with Radisson Rewards, World of Hyatt or Le Club AccorHotels.
