17 Comments

RoomKey is a hotel booking service backed and, at least partially, owned by Choice, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott and Wyndham. The idea behind the service is to try get consumers to book more directly with the hotels own websites over OTA’s like Expedia and Booking.com.

You don’t see adverts for RoomKey anywhere, but if you access any of these hotel websites, you are likely going to see a pop ups and pop unders for the website. I don’t mind seeing it once, but especially with Marriott’s website it keeps opening RoomKey pop unders every time I am trying to make a booking or search for the price.

Why book using points?

In most cases, the reservations are fully cancellable up until the day before without any penalty. Just make sure that you read the cancellation terms and conditions carefully. All the ones that I checked, allowed cancellations without any penalties.

My Hotel Program Strategy for 2013

14 Comments

The number of hotel nights that I have stayed at the hotels yearly hasn’t really fluctuated for close to ten years (as I have been living out of them). The hotel chains that I have frequented, however, has changed from year to year.

hotel-cards

At the top tier level, the hotel chains are interchangeable. What matters to me most, are the quality of the promotions that the hotel chain is offering i.e. if someone is running an unlimited free night promotions, I will move all of my stays for the promotional period there.

7 Comments

One LoyaltyLobby reader forwarded me an email about an offer they had received from Priority Club for buying points. Priority Club is offering 40% bonus for those that purchased points in 2012 for buying some this January. This offer ends on January 31, 2013. You can access this offer here. Please note that if the bonus doesn’t show the account is not eligible for this bonus offer.

priority-club-buy-points-bonus-january-2013

The price of a Priority Club point after factoring the 40% bonus in quantities of more than 26K points at a time is 0.82 cents/point. This is more than what you can buy them by booking Cash & Points award and canceling it shortly afterward. The price of a point under the latter method is 0.7 cents per point.
