Stack Prestige + SPG promo Buy 4 get 2 free

Starwood Preferred Guest is running a good promotion in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East: Use a Mastercard to buy 2 or 3 nights and get 1 free or buy 4 nights and get 2 free. This will stack with the Citi Prestige 4th night free. Rates are a little high, so it’s not accurate to call this a Buy 3 get 3 free — but it can certainly amount of a nice discount on 6 nights in…

Why are Marriott Travel Packages a good deal?

Now book Kimpton hotels with IHG points! Huge value w/ IHG free night

Kimpton Hotels and its Kimpton Karma Rewards has been a much-loved niche brand for years.

Negative change to IHG Best Rate Guarantee

InterContinental New York Barclay

IHG has changed the terms of their Best Rate Guarantee — and it’s bad news.

From $18 + 2500 points: Hyatt Cash & Points rates cut at some properties

EDIT: This Quick Deal appears to be expired for the US properties originally listed, although there are still properties in India that can be booked at the lower Cash & Points rates.

Delano Las Vegas Fine Hotels & Resorts

When a friend asked me for advice last month about which credit card to get, I explained that you get a premium card for the benefits and another card on which to spend (See: Super credit card duos. What’s in your wallet? for some great pairs). One of my favorite benefits of premium cards are hotel booking programs, where you can get a ton of valuable benefits without any status beyond “cardholder”.  Recently, a reader asked…
