Summer is here and most of the major hotel chains have released their summer promos. I updated my promos page, but I wanted to post it here as well so you don’t miss it. The only major chain that is missing is Hyatt. Last summer they didn’t have a points promo, they just had an airline miles promo. Who knows if they will have a promo this summer, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
With most of these promos you have to register before your stay, and sometimes the registration period ends before the promo actually ends. That means it is a good idea to go ahead and register for the promos even if you aren’t yet sure if you will make use of them or not. That way you won’t miss out on any points!
