You’ve probably seen this advertised on other blogs, but in case you haven’t, there’s a new luxury hotel club that is offering free membership for the first year, but only through October 31 (Monday). I haven’t spent any time at all looking into whether or not Club1Hotels really delivers on their promises, but Miles to Memories says that they seem to have good prices for luxury hotels, and Doctor of Credit says that he found better prices with Club1Hotels than with other providers. Meanwhile, MileNerd has concluded that Club1Hotels sucks. Which is right? No idea. The good news is that it doesn’t really matter since initial signup is free if you do it now. UPDATE: See comments of this post for arguments on the “it sucks” side.
In other words: You might as well sign up now (before Nov 1) while it’s free. Then we can discover later whether the service is good or bad.
Club1Hotels is a private Global Luxury Hotel Club which claims to be the cheapest way to book 4, 4.5 and 5-star hotels. Most hotel booking sites (Expedia, Kayak, Trivago etc) take a cut of the rate that you pay for your stay. Club1Hotels says that they’ll give you wholesale rates with NO mark up. They instead make their cut with their annual membership fee. They claim that savings on higher end properties are usually between $75 & $150 PER night.
And $50 off by Sunday Night
This weekend, Club1Hotels are also giving members $50 off their booking fees on any bookings made before Sunday at midnight. (This includes new members too who make a booking)
In addition November 1 Club1 Hotels will be launching a referral program where you can refer friends and family members and get $100 for every member you refer and the new member also gets $100.

They setup a unique signup page for Frequent Miler readers.
I have no idea whether this leads to any compensation for me. I’ll update this once I find out. I will receive $4 per free registration.
