We have entered the last quarter of 2013 (where did the year go?) and everyone is trying to ensure meeting the elite status requirements in their preferred programs (myself included).

The hotel promotions haven’t been this good for a while. Here are my top five for this month.

IHG Rewards Club “Big Win” Fall 2013 Promotion Default Option

Hotel Promotions Update (Q4) October 2013

2 Comments

Here’s the October hotel promotions update. Hilton just launched their “More Nights, More Points”  promotion for up to quadruple points that is valid until January 31, 2014.

Club Carlson is completely missing on the promotion field. Anyone still remembers the promotion they had in 2012?

hotel-promotions-update-october-2013

There are unbelievable number of combinable IHG Rewards Club promotions that everybody should take advantage of. You would earn bundle of points by doing four stays and getting 50K+ points from their Big Win + at least another 50K from other promotions. You can find these all from the IHG Rewards Club Fall 2013 Promotion Guide that I wrote.

IHG Brand Standards In Case Of Overbooking / Being Walked

21 Comments

LoyaltyLobby reader emailed me a question earlier in the week regarding a confirmed reservation at a Holiday Inn and for not having a room / being walked to another hotel.

In hotel lingo the guest is “being walked” meaning that the hotel is overbooked and some guests need to be accommodated at other hotel(s).

IHG Rewards Club Fall 2013 Promotion Guide

28 Comments

IHG Rewards Club (Priority Club’s name changed on July 1 – read more about the changes here) has a plethora of promotions going on at the moment.

As a matter of fact, I have never seen so many simultaneous promotions that are combinable. I have tried my very best to summarize them all in this article.

ihg-rewards-club-fall-2013-promotion-guide

The number of different types of promotions that the IHG Rewards Club may sometimes have simultaneously is very confusing even for someone that follows them as closely as I do (you can read more about different types of promotions here) and reading the promotional terms and conditions, when available, don’t always help either.
