Combinability of Priority Club’s Double Points or Miles Promotion & Stay-Bonuses

In the past, Priority Club’s “global” promotions have always been combinable with targeted stay bonuses. This, however, has now changed. The current promotion for Double Points or Miles cannot be combined with the Stay-bonuses that are both valid from January 7 to April 30, 2013.


I have written about the Double Points or Miles promotion that doesn’t have a public promotion code to sign up for, but is rather tied up for singing up for the program itself.

Reminder to Be Diligent About (Fake) Messages from Hotels & Airlines

Back in July, I wrote about an email that appeared to be coming from American Airlines that was merely an phishing attempt to get access to your AAdvantage account. Today, I received a direct message on Twitter from Hilton Narita with a link supposedly to a photo.


This message came via email and I could access it on LoyaltyLobby’s Twitter direct messages.

Le Club Accorhotels Is Moving To Online Point Redemptions


Unlike other hotel loyalty programs, you have only been able to redeem for dollar or euro off vouchers from Accor’s loyalty program. Accor doesn’t allow you to redeem points for a free nights (unless you pay using vouchers).


Now, Accor is moving to online point redemptions, where you pay the room rate fully or partially using the points that you have in your account.

Southwest Airlines and Class Action Law Suit Over Expiry of Drink Chits

Just received the following email today regarding a class action law suite that Southwest had decided to settle over unused drink chits that passengers had received based on the Business Select fare that they had purchased. You can read more about this settlement on the settlement website here.


Back in 2010, Southwest made a policy change about these vouchers that they would only be valid on the day of the flight and not later. Some Southwest fliers were left with dozens of drinks chits that were then deemed worthless.
