November 2014 hotel promotions guide

October saw a further erosion of customer trust in hotel loyalty programs.

In the past four months we have seen Marriott Rewards drastically change the terms for its Rewards Plus program two months into a six month long promotion. The promotion required only eight social media actions on Facebook and Twitter to earn 2,000 points in May and June, then in July changed to 80 actions to earn 2,000 points. We watched IHG Rewards Club disintegrate its social credibility with the Into the Nights fiasco with changes to members’ tasks six weeks after the promotion launched. Even the Europeans faltered when Le Club Accorhotels dropped its 5,000 bonus Aeroplan miles promotion on October 27, less than four weeks into a three month promotion, after they discovered customer overenthusiasm at earning Le Club Accorhotels Platinum elite membership after three stays, along with 15,000+ Aeroplan miles.

Please send me an email at ricgarrido@live.com if you know of a good hotel promotion not listed here.

Starwood Hotels Birth Year rate can be a great savings at some hotels. Pay a set rate for the first night of your hotel stay and get the second and for select hotels third night at the nightly rate of your birth year. For example, born in 1975, then the room rate is $75. At some hotels this will be the lowest rate possible and can save a $100 to $300 on a hotel stay.
