If you are a frequent traveler it makes sense to sign up for a rewards program so that you get the best rates and value out of your hotel stay. However, many of the rewards programs take more than give and end up being counterproductive to sign up for. However, there are a select few programs which deliver on their promise to give customers the best for their money.
The hotel has over 8,000 properties around the world and is amongst the highest rated. Points can be earned through staying at hotels from the Days Inn, Ramada, Super 8, Wyndham Grand, and Howard Johnson, which all have affordable rates. The chain also has partnerships with Amtrak, American Airlines, United Airlines, Avis, and Budget, letting you gain points elsewhere, too.
World of Hyatt
The luxury Hyatt brand caters for a range of high-class travelers. A dollar spent at a Hyatt hotel will give you five points and if you amass over 5,000 points, you can get a free night’s stay. In addition, the points can be converted into air miles to assist with flights.
Best Western Rewards
Best Western allows you to retain your points for years and they won’t expire. The chain has an impressive 4,200 properties in 100 countries, all with very reasonable rates. The points can be converted to air miles to use with Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
In 2016, Marriott International took over Starwood Hotels & Resorts which meant that members could use points through each of the programs. The partnership also meant you could have equal high status if you were in a high tier on one and low on another.
