InterContinental Hotels Group – Priority Club
As always, Priority Club has number of promotions that you should sign for.
Last week, I wrote about eight Priority Club bonuses that one should sign up for. These were offers that were emailed to a number of Priority Club members and are supposedly “targeted”. With Priority Club these targeted offers are open for anybody, however.
These started on July 1st and end on September 30th, 2012. You should sign up for an offer that you know that you can achieve
You can get 1000 bonus Priority Club points per night (capped at 20K) for stays until September 3rd.
This is a nice bonus points promotion for InterContinental stays in the Americas. You need to get the stays in by the end of July, 2012.
This is a nice bonus for a stay in Canada. You need to have the stays by December 30th, 2012 to be eligible for the bonus miles.
You will get 1000 bonus Priority Club bonus points per nights + 250 points per stay for booking online. This offer is valid until September 3rd, 2012.
You can get a $75 prepaid MasterCard after a rebate for a two night weekend stay. This offer is valid until September 3rd, 2012.
This promotion cannot be combined with the 15K Bonus + Gold after 6 stays. This offer is valid until the end of July, 2012.
This is similar to the weekend offer, but is valid for weekday stays. This offer is valid until August 2nd, 2012.
You can get couple of thousand bonus points for completing bunch of short quizzes.
Marriott summer promotion started on June 1st and is valid until August 31st. You needed to register by June 30th. There are number of variations of the offer.
Marriott also has a MegaMiles promotion from July 1st to October 31st, 2012 for triple airline miles with selected airlines. Note that you need to change your earning from points to miles before you can sign up for this.
Marriott also offers status matches or taste of Platinum/Gold. You can read more about the procedures of getting one here:

Ritz-Carlton has exciting Extraordinary Returns promotion starting on July 15th and ends on October 15th, 2012. You can get 30000 bonus points for a stay of 4 days or longer.
Starwood Preferred Guest
Starwood launched their much anticipated SPG Nice Choice promotion on May 1st that hasn’t gone down too well. You can read about the initial leak, my ability to confirm that the leaked information was real, and the strategy that you should take. Essentially, this is a double or triple Starpoints promotion that is very weak compared to free night promotions that SPG was running during 2010 and 2011. Note that you needed to choose what you would like to earn and when by June 30th, 2012.
You can get 1000 Delta SkyMiles or US Airways Dividend Miles for booking a special (expensive) rate plan.
Starwood doesn’t offer straight status matches, but they can offer you a challenge:
Wyndham has two promotions. One is for North America (US, Canada, and Mexico) and the other one is for rest of the world. In my opinion the rest of the world is better. Both of these promotions are ending on July 8th, 2012.
