Surprise: Some NYC hotels will only cost 35K Marriott points (free cert eligible)

Marriott has announced a partial list of hotels as a preview for the new award chart pricing coming on August 1st. Some hotels will be going up, though as expected the preview list includes a number of expensive Starwood properties that are dropping in price significantly. However, the big surprise for me was to see that there will be several Manhattan hotels that will be bookable with the annual free night certificate from the current SPG…

SPG’s Off the Chart Properties, and a Map

SPG currently has 17 properties that are literally “off the charts” in that they are not priced in SPG’s standard category 1-7 award chart.  The award prices for these properties are also off the charts in the sense that they can be astronomically high.  Fortunately, when Marriott and SPG merge in August, it should be possible to book these properties at reasonable rates.  Nick covered this opportunity in-depth in his post: The huge wins in…

The huge wins in yesterday’s Marriott announcement

The sky didn’t fall yesterday; on the contrary, it’s the award prices at some of the most aspirational SPG properties that will fall during a brief window of opportunity later this year. Marriott’s newly announced unified program was highly anticipated, with many longtime SPG enthusiasts fraught with trepidation over the unknown future of the combined program in part due to the rumors swirling about Marriott’s intentions. In the end, most of the changes turned out to…

Look to Greyhound for hotel deals (yes, Greyhound)

Greyhound offers special member-only hotel deals for those signed up for Greyhound’s loyalty program (yeah, they have that… who knew?).  I’ve posted about this before (see: Excellent hotel discounts via… Greyhound), but this is the first time I’ve taken advantage of it. I wanted to book a stay at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City.  Hyatt’s member rate was advertised as $254, but it was really $288.41 after taxes. Their government rate was slightly better at…

IHG points on sale for .576 cents each at 1pm, but only buy if you need them now

Today’s Daily Getaways deal is a sale on IHG points, from 0.576 cents per point. This deal starts at 1pm Eastern time today (Wednesday, April 11th, 2018). That’s actually a bit higher than our Reasonable Redemption Value for IHG points (0.57 cents per point), meaning that you should only get in on this if you have a specific high-value redemption in mind. That said, if you recently opened the new IHG Rewards Club Traveler or IHG…

(EXPIRED) Buy Choice points at a great rate if you’re fast (4/10 @ 1pm Eastern)

Tuesday, April 10th only, at 1pm Eastern time (about an hour from the time this post publishes), you’ll have an opportunity to buy Choice Privileges Points at well below our Reasonable Redemption Value. You’ll have to be pretty quick with it as this is an item that usually sells out within seconds, though there are more available this year so it’s possible that the packages won’t all go out of stock instantly. Daily Getaways If you haven’t heard,…
