We recently flagged the demise of the English language version of Holidaycheck. While it is still possible to earn Miles&More and Topbonus miles through holidaycheck.de, you need a command of German (or Polish, if you use holidaycheck.pl).
So step up Gezi.com, an English language hotel review site that rewards you with 100 Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles miles per hotel review. Importantly, that is not all – there are substantial mileage bonuses available for submitting photos with your review, too…
Signing up to Gezi.com is very easy – I did it via my Facebook log-in in a matter of seconds. There’s then a straightforward interface to type in the name of the hotel you want to review, and you’ll be presented with the review template:
And there’s more miles to be had:
You’ll earn a bonus 25 miles for the first photograph you submit with a review:
Then a further 50 miles if you submit a second photo with that review.
Then a further 100 miles if you submit a third photo with that review:
Then you will earn an additional 50 miles for each subsequent photo submitted. I’m not sure when this stops, but I got up to 625 miles in total based on the 11 photos I had of the Hilton Paddington:
The maximum number of miles you can earn with Gezi.com is 10,000 in any 1 calendar year.
In conclusion, as with Holidaycheck, the amount of miles you earn here is hardly going to get you a First Class redemption ticket any time soon. However, it is a useful handful of miles for a few seconds’ work, particularly with the photo bonus miles.
In addition, if you’re in the habit of submitting hotel reviews anyway, you may as well submit them on a site that rewards you for doing so.
The other great advantage of these handfuls of points for reviews is that they can get you over redemption thresholds. I have said it before, but I once needed 35,000 miles for a Lufthansa redemption: I was just below, and Holidaycheck got me over the line.
