Here is InsideFlyer’s take on the main hotel chain-wide promotions currently available.
Hilton’s first promotion of 2022 started on January 1st and runs throughout March. Members earn 2,500 bonus points per STAY.
2,500 bonus points is worth ~£10 at best. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus (but not for long, expensive stays!)
You can also earn these bonus points on award stays.
World of Hyatt
Hyatt’s first promotion of 2022 started on 15th January and runs throughout March. Members can earn 2,022 bonus points every SECOND night. Note that today (15th March 2022) is the final day to register, if you haven’t done so already!
The worldwide promotion works out to 1,011 bonus points per night, worth roughly £12.50. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.
However, you also earn these bonus points on award stays.
Marriott’s first promotion of 2022 started on 8th February and will run throughout March. Members can earn double elite status credit and 1,000 bonus points per night.
1,000 bonus points per night is worth roughly £5-6. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.
The double elite night element will be very attractive to those readers chasing Marriott elite status.
IHG’s first chain-wide promotion of 2022 started on 1st February and will run throughout March. Members can earn double points. These bonus points also count towards qualifying for elite status (via the points method).
Since IHG points are worth ~0.4p each and the bonus is calculated on the USD equivalent rate, a double point bonus is effectively an additional ~5% rebate.
However if you are interested in earning elite status before the (planned) new programme changes are implemented, the fact that these bonus points count for status can be quite appealing… IHG previously stated that the new programme should be unveiled before the end of March, but we’ll see.
All 4 major hotel chains now have a chain-wide promotion running in March 2022. None are particularly lucrative for expensive paid stays, but the elite status multiplier for Marriott and IHG is certainly worth considering.
