Melia has a launch offer for their new Melia Rewards program and is offering 2000 points just for signing up. You can access this offer on Melia’s website here.
Melia is likely still better known as Sol-Melia, but the Sol-part of the name was recently dropped. The chain has 350 hotels mainly in Spain and other Spanish speaking countries such as Cuba. There are few hotels elsewhere as well.
The 2000 points that you get, as part of signing up for the program, can come handy when doing a Money + Points reservation.
In Havana the 2000 points would shave off about $40 of the price of any of the three affiliated hotels.
There aren’t really benefits at the base level, but getting to Silver or Gold doesn’t look too difficult.
I just signed up for the program and the points were deposited to my account. The may come handy next month when I am in Barcelona.
