The Head for Points top picks for September stays:

You have three good options at the moment:

IHG Rewards Club has just launched its latest Accelerate promotion.  Everyone gets different personalised targets which you need to hit before 31st December.  This can be very lucrative if the targets fit around your travel patterns.  You can register here.

Hilton Honors new Autumn offer is double base points (triple points if you have the old Barclaycard Hilton Honors credit card).  This is valid for stays from 9th September until 5th January 2020.  You can register here.

Marriott Bonvoy is offering 1,500 bonus points on stays of 2+ nights.  It is valid on stays until 16th September, although registration is now closed.  We don’t know what will replace it from 17th September.

World of Hyatt, Radisson Rewards and Le Club AccorHotels are not currently running a global promotion.
