Other offers to take note of today are a Best Western bonus for South America stays, a new 1st/Business class Asia Miles promo out of Canada and a targeted Delta promo awarding American Express Gift Cards.

Wyndham Rewards: New Award Chart

On March 14 Wyndham Rewards is releasing a new award chart for free nights at their properties. The chart shows a new lowest category level of 5,500 points (getting rid of the 6,000 point level) which is the good news, they have also done away with the short lived highest category 35,000 and 45,000 point level redemptions but have kept the rest of the levels just recently introduced that were over the old high end 16,000 points.  You can expect to see many hotels that were capped at 16K to move up.  There is also a new level being introduced at 8,000 points. More details can be found here

Starwood Preferred Guest 2013 Category Adjustments

Hot on the heels of the big Hilton news comes an announcement from Starwood Preferred Guest on their annual hotel award category adjustments. Perhaps SPG is hoping their announcement will be drowned out by the HHonors devaluation. Unlike Marriott, Hilton, or Priority Club, SPG is not introducing new categories but the announcement on Milepoint.com tells us about the individual hotel movements in point requirements coming on March 5th.  Overall 47 properties will move down a category while at least 20% of all of Starwood's hotels will be moving up in categories including one of my perennial favorites, the Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas.



SPG Award Night Starpoint Requirements

Overall SPG's changes aren't as drastic as the other main hotel reward programs but with over 200 hotels going up it still isn't good news for SPG members.

Luckily enough, SPG has provided a list of the hotel changes which you can download here (PDF). If you have any planned redemptions coming up you can consult this list to see if you should redeem your Starpoints before March 5 or wait until after.

February 21 Bonus Offer Highlight: Southwest Rapid Rewards

 You may have seen my tweet about this offer yesterday afternoon, now it has been added to FFB site and is the highlight of today. The offer I'm talking about is the expansion of Southwest's Double Points Nationwide bonus to include Double Tier Qualifying Points. Either the original offer wasn't feeling enough 'Luv' from Southwest flyers (ie registrations) or members poked and prodded Southwest to make the promo the same as the one we saw towards the end of 2012. Other bonuses to look into today include two great offers from American for flights to Dublin and Dusseldorf, Delta's bonuses for flights to the Caribbean and a new version of SPG's Sheraton Club offer.

Southwest Rapid Rewards
Double Rapid Rewards Points & Double Tier Qualifying Points on all Southwest Airlines flight Systemwide. The promo requires you to register prior to the commencement of your travel and is only valid for new bookings (so if you booked before this promo was released on Feb 4 those flights won't count) Register Online (Registration is required) Until May 15, 13

Major Devaluation to the Hilton HHonors program coming in March


At the start of each year we normally see some of the big hotel chains making changes to their loyalty programs. 2013 has been no different, in fact I would have to say there have been more changes than more and as is almost always the case the changes aren't good. Starwood Preferred Guest, IHG Priority Club, and Marriott Rewards have all released 'bad news' changes to their programs and now with an email yesterday came news of Hilton's turn. Out of all the programs that have announced changes, Hilton HHonors have got to be some of the most significant and not in a good way.

All of these changes are slated to take place on March 28th and are as follows:
Hilton HHonors will be moving to 10 award categories from 7. The new categories are 8, 9 and 10 and primarily affect current Category 7 hotels which maxed out at 50,000 points for an award night. Now with the new categories some these hotels will cost as much as 95,000 points per night! Overall this is a huge devaluation for many of the 'dream' hotels that members aspire to redeem at and even for the not so 'dreamy' hotels that are in the middle of the award chart.

Here is the current award chart

and here is what the new one looks like

You'll notice that for categories 4 through 10 there are various point ranges for the award nights, this is taking into account HHonors' new Seasonal Hotel Reward Pricing. In basic terms, hotels in these categories will have variable rates depending on the season (High/Low)

One thing I didn't notice on many of the other Frequent Flyer and Loyalty Blogs is that the Category 1-3 hotels have actually gone down in the amount of points required but the reasons it is not mentioned is that there are a little over 500 properties in these categories out of Hilton's 3,900+ hotels inventory, so they make up a small portion of the pot and most people, like myself, save up points to redeem for aspirational awards, like stays at the 5 star on the beach locations, which never fall into the low categories. Also going down is the lowest rate possible for categories 5-7, obviously for stays during the lowest of low seasons.

The final change is 5th Night Free, where members with Silver, Gold or Diamond elite status will get a free night when they book a Standard Room Reward stay of five or more consecutive nights. This 'new' enhancement will actually remove the current VIP Awards from HHonors which provided 20% off standard award rates for stay of 5 nights (so the equivalent of 5th night free) but also provided 15% off for 4 nights or even better 25% off of 6 nights. So the loss of the VIP Awards and the introduction of the 5th Night Free for elite members can also be considered a devaluation of the HHonors program.

As always, for some good analysis please visit Ric Garrido's Loyalty Traveler blog where he puts up some sample reward bookings under the current HHonors program and the program after March 28th. It doesn't look good.


Screen shot from Ric Garrido's post on the HHonors changes


Are you a big time user of the Hilton HHonors program? I'm not so much so I'd love to hear comments from those of you who are going to be majorily affected by these changes!
