Sunday Brunch – Best Hotel Promotions Currently Available

Sunday Brunch – Best Hotel Promotions Currently Available

Sunday Brunch with Loyalty Traveler is a chance for me to review the best hotel promotions currently happening.  Hotel loyalty program promotions tend to have a validity period of one to four months.  Most of the major hotel loyalty programs are currently running 4th quarter major promotions going from now into December.

Here are links to Loyalty Traveler posts and analysis for the major hotel promotions.

Many of these promotions will earn free nights and in some cases a person can earn free hotel nights worth more than what the promotion costs to earn the free night.

Hilton HHonors:

Hilton HHonors One Million Points Contest
Five Prizes of One Million Hilton HHonors Points will be awarded to HHonors members who register for the promotion and book a stay at a Hilton family hotel online on HiltonHHonors.com or rent a car from National Car Rental at nationalcar.com between September 1 and November 30, 2008
