Hyatt announces their winter 2014 promotion: Earn Free Nights or Bonus Gold Passport Points

Jeff Zidell, the VP of Hyatt Gold Passport passed along this announcement on FlyerTalk this morning.

Beginning January 15, 2014, there will be more ways to reward yourself with our Hyatt Gold Passport® Endless Possibilities promotion. You can earn a free night or thousands of bonus points after every five nights you stay with us by April 30.

Choose Free Nights
Earn a free night at any Category 1-4 Hyatt hotel worldwide after every five nights. Enjoy 4 free nights after you stay a maximum of 20 nights. Redeem your free nights with no blackout dates through July 31, 2014.

Or, Choose Bonus Points
Earn 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after your first five nights and thousands more for every additional five nights. After 20 nights, you’ll earn 50,000 bonus points. Here’s how the points add up:

Stay 5 Nights, Earn +5,000 Points = 5,000 Total Points Earned
Stay 10 Nights, Earn +10,000 Points = 15,000 Total Points Earned
Stay 15 Nights, Earn +15,000 Points = 30,000 Total Points Earned
Stay 20 Nights, Earn +20,000 Points = 50,000 Total Points Earned

So which will you choose — free nights or bonus points?

Registration begins on January 9, 2014, for stays from January 15, 2014 through April 30, 2014.
Along with the latest IHG Big Win it appears that the trend of lackluster hotel promos may be over as Hyatt even appears to be climbing out of the hole with this latest offering. In our opinion it is still not amazing like the Faster Free Nights of old (no Category cap, less nights required to earn free nights) it is definitely stronger than some of the other promos that have been announced (Starwood and Choice for examples)



What are your thoughts on this promotion? Which option will you choose? I personally am thinking I will go for the free night as I don't for see me having more than 5 nights at Hyatt during the first four months of 2014 and that free night is worth up to 15,000 points versus the 5,000 bonus in the points version. I'm not 100% sure yet though and at least I have until Jan 9 to decide!

December 17 Bonus Offer Highlight: IHG Rewards Club

We provided lots of coverage of IHG's next incarnation of The Big Win on the FFB blog since last Thursday but in all that haste we forgot to add it to the primary FFB site! Well now we have and since it is once again quite a decent offering (at least for some of you who are getting offers in the 80,000 - 100,000 bonus points range we figured it should be the highlight of the day. Other bonuses that we added today that are worth a look into are the updated Buy AAdvantage Miles offer we posted about earlier today, a bonus for stays at the Hyatt Regency Manila and a whole shebang of offers from Malaysia Airlines Enrich.

IHG Rewards Club
The Big Win - Earn at least 31,000 IHG® Rewards Club bonus points or at least 7,000 miles throughout the promotional period when you stay at any IHG hotel, including the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo® Hotels, Holiday Inn® Hotels, Holiday Inn Resort® Hotels, Holiday Inn Club Vacations®, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels, Staybridge Suites® Hotels or Candlewood Suites® Hotels brands Worldwide. Members will be awarded with 1,000 bonus points or 500 miles for their first night’s stay. Members will begin to earn when they register and stay between Jan 1 and Apr 30 , 2013. After the first stay, members will receive customized offers to earn at least 31,000 bonus points or 7,000 bonus miles for stays during the promotional period.

American AAdvantage updates the current buy miles offer with an additional 20% bonus (or other gifts)


A few weeks ago we let you know about the latest American AAdvantage Buy Miles offer as follows:

Earn up to 18,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you buy AAdvantage Miles online. Full details

AAdvantage members must purchase or gift between 6,000 and 14,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction from the buyAAmiles® or giftAAmiles® program to be eligible for 1,800 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 15,000 and 29,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible for 4,500 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 30,000 and 44,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 9,000 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift between 45,000 and 59,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 13,500 bonus miles. Members must purchase or gift 60,000 AAdvantage miles in a single transaction to be eligible to earn 18,000 bonus miles
That offer has not changed but has been updated with the following addition bonus and or gifts if you buy the full amount of 60,000 AAdvantage Miles in one transaction:
If you buy or gift 60,000 miles in a single transaction an e-mail will be sent to you in January 2014 to let you choose one of the following special holiday gifts, to make your travel even more rewarding.
  •  20% additional bonus miles – In addition to the 30% bonus you can earn 20% extra bonus miles that will be deposited into your account by January 31, 2014
  • 10% off flights on aa.com – Save 10% on flights on aa.com when you book by February 6, 2014, for travel starting February 18, 2014 through May 18, 2014
  • 5,000-mile discount on award – Get a 5000-mile discount for up to three passengers, that’s a total saving of up to 15,000 miles when you book between January 24, 2014 and February 21, 2014, for travel between February 18, 2014 through May 18, 2014 (for flights originating in contiguous US or Canada)
  • Three 500-mile upgrades – If you are an AAdvantage Elite Member you can enjoy an additional three 500-mile upgrades
Unless you plan on buying some real expensive flights with AA to utilize the 10% off offer you're best bet is to choose the 20% additional bonus miles (an extra 12,000 miles). Of course if you have no immediate need for AAdvantage miles you are even more better off by buying US Airways Dividend Miles with an up to 100% bonus until December 20th since US Airways Dividend Miles will be redeemable for American Airlines flights in only a few months.

December 16 Bonus Offer Highlight: United MileagePlus

The Christmas season is definitely upon us as there has been a significant drop in the number of new bonus offers and other promotions being released. This will in fact be the last week of full updates until 2014 here on FFB.

The other bonuses you should check out from the 9 added today include the mentioned on FFB on Friday offer of 50% Bonus Miles&Smiles Miles on tons of Turkish Airlines flights, the next batch of double/triple points offers from La Quinta Returns and Etihad's Triple Miles for stays at Viceroy Hotels.

US Airways: Up to a 100% Bonus when you buy/gift Dividend Miles until Dec 20

http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-1654157-11642452
As we mentioned last week, US Airways was planning to have one more bonus on buying Dividend Miles in 2013 and here it is:

Earn up to 100% Bonus Dividend Miles when you buy or gift Dividend Miles. Full details Until Dec 20, 13

Buy/Gift Bonus
10,000 - 19,000 Miles 50%
20,000 - 29,000 Miles 75%
30,000 - 50,000 Miles 100%

Much like last week's share miles promo this one is only available for 5 days and is one of the easiest, cheapest and best ways to buy American AAdvantage miles. Why? Well in case you have been stuffed under a rock like Patrick Star you'll know that US Airways and American Airlines are merging and the program of choice when all is said and done will be the AAdvantage program. Ultimately your Dividend Miles will become AAdvantage miles if you don't use them while the two programs run separately. Overall whether you buy miles now and redeem them immediately for US Airways or Star Alliance awards until March 30 or wait until after that for a oneworld redemption, this is always one of the best buy miles offers to take advantage of as you are buying the miles for just under 1.9 cents each when you buy at the 100% level of 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Remember you can get business class to North Asia from North America for only 90,000 miles!

IHG Big Win 2014 now open for registration - our offer is for 31,000 bonus points, what's yours?

Just tried logging into the new Big Win page on IHG and am happy to say it appears to be open for registration!

http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-1654157-10474825?sid=bigwin2&url=https://bigwin.ihg.com/amer/us/en?promoCode=8291&offerId=P8291&cm_mmc=CJ-_-857050-_-1654157-_-IHG%20Redirect%20Link%20200&cm_mmc=IMMerch-6C-US-EN-PRURLs-vanity-TBWSpring14&utm_source=8291-Vanity-GLO&utm_medium=IMMerch-6C-US-EN-PRURLs-vanity-TBWSpring149

Earn IHG® Rewards Club bonus points or airline miles throughout the promotional period when you stay at any IHG hotel, including the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo® Hotels, Holiday Inn® Hotels, Holiday Inn Resort® Hotels, Holiday Inn Club Vacations®, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels, Staybridge Suites® Hotels or Candlewood Suites® Hotels brands Worldwide. Members will be awarded with 1,000 bonus points or 500 miles for their first night’s stay. Members will begin to earn when they register and stay between January 1 and Apr 30, 2014.  To find out what your customized offer and register visit here

Here is the offer I received:
One Night Win: Stay at any IHG Hotel and earn 1,000 Points
Stay More and Earn More: Stay a total of 3 nights and receive 3,000 Points
Explore our brands: Stay at 3 different IHG brands and earn 7,000 points
Book with IHG: Book 2 separate stays through an IHG® hotel website or mobile device to get our Best Price Guarantee and earn 2,000 points
Win in a Weekend: Stay 3 Saturday nights and earn 8,000 points
Win Big: Complete 5 of your offers and earn 10,000 points

My offers are pretty low as I hit only the 31,000 point mark whereas others will more than likely get higher offers. This time the Big Win isn't as easily achievable for me as certain portions like the "Win in a Weekend went from 2 Saturdays to 3 Saturdays but other parts have become easier such as "Win Big" and "Stay More and Earn More" require less steps. I really don't know if I will go for the Big Win for only 31,000 points but you never know as I don't really even know my schedule for the 2014 yet!

What offer did you receive? Feel free to share it with the FFB readership below and let us know if you are going to try for some or all of your offer.

Southwest: Save up to 25% when buy Rapid Rewards points



United is not the only airline to offer a discount on buying miles as Southwest is also running a sale on buying their Rapid Rewards points. This one differs from the MileagePlus offer we posted earlier today as the discounts are tiered and increase with the more points you buy.

United: 25% Discount on buying MileagePlus Miles until Dec 13


Another day another buy miles offer! This time it is a discounted rate for buying MileagePlus miles. Typical of many of the short term targeted offers we have seen this year this one is open to everyone.

According to the promotion landing page this is the last chance to buy discounted miles this year from United, however that doesn't stop them from still running a bonus miles offer buying miles in the last few weeks. Only time will tell however.

The discount of 25% on buying MileagePlus miles started yesterday and only lasts until December 13 so if you need to top off an award or can find good value in buying the miles at this discounted price you don't have too many days to do so.

Complete details can be found here

PointsHound: Double-Up Hotels expanded and increased first time booking bonus of 1,000 Miles/Points


We got an email late last night from the team at PointsHound letting us know that they expanded the Double-Up program to include eligible rates from hotel brands participating in the Club Carlson and Wyndham Rewards frequent guest programs. This amounts to another 5,000 Double-Up rates at hotels in U.S. destinations.

What is Double-Up?
Double-Up refers to a specific rate type that gives members of major hotel loyalty programs the opportunity to earn frequent guest points, status credit and elite benefits in addition to the frequent flyer miles awarded by PointsHound.

Essentially with Double-Up rates you get the best of both worlds on your hotel bookings!

As a show of their appreciation of FFB's support of PointsHound since their inception the first time booking bonus for new members has been increased to 1,000 miles for those who join via our referral link. The normal bonus is 250 miles for referrals via most referrers save for a few other bloggers who have also been extended this increased referral bonus offer from PointsHound.  To get the 1,000 Bonus Miles/Points simply make your first booking before the end of the year after you signed up via our referral link.

Programs you can earn miles/points with PointsHound.com

The promo encourages Iberia Plus members to earn Avios from their various non-airline partners. The more partners you use the more bonus Avios you can earn. The beauty of this promotion however for either Iberia Plus or British Airways Executive Club members is that you can earn 15 Avios per day for simply submitting your Iberia Plus number and sharing the promotion via Facebook or Twitter. How is this good for BA Executive Club members? You can connect your Iberia Plus and BAEC memberships then transfer the Avios earn in Iberia Plus to British Airways Executive Club. Whichever program you use it is always nice to earn a little extra Avios for free. Other bonuses added today that shouldn't be missed include a new bonus for online shopping via American Airlines AAdvantage sShopping portal, a new addition to FFB: Enterprise Car Rental's Plus program which has a new double points promotion and increased sign up bonuses for Wyndham Rewards credit cards in the U.S.
