PointsHound launched a very lucrative offer for Air France-KLM Flying Blue members that book their first hotel stay using the service by October 15, 2016, that I wrote about last week (access here).
Flying Blue members can earn 12,000 bonus miles for a minimum stay of two nights that you pay for (not use Flying Blue miles). Bonus miles are in addition to the base ones that you earn for the stay.
You can access this offer on PointsHound’s website here.

If you need to stay at some non-chain hotels, this is a good opportunity to stock up on some Flying Blue miles.
