Two Additional Earning Opportunities With Hotel Stays

I'm a little late on the first one, but here are two more ways to earn miles or points with hotel stays:

1) Air Canada Aeroplan bonus miles at any Hyatt hotel worldwide:
  • Between July 1, 2011 and September 30, 2011, every eligible stay at any hotel within the Hyatt group will earn 2,500 Aeroplan miles. A maximum of 25,000 miles can be earned through this promotion (10 stays).
  • As I stated in the previous post, you must specify that you want to earn Aeroplan miles at every check-in, and provide your Aeroplan membership number. If you get Hyatt Gold Passport points posted instead, you must call in to customer service to get the problem fixed. If you are not a member of Aeroplan yet, you can enroll here.
  • You will continue to earn the normal 500 Aeroplan miles per stay.
  • Make sure you register prior to your first stay during the promotion period.
2) American Express Membership Rewards bonus points at three different Starwood Preferred Guest hotel brands:
  • Between August 10, 2011 and November 15, 2011, every eligible stay at Four Points by Sheraton, Aloft, and Element hotels will earn 1,000 bonus MR points when you pay with your American Express card. Eligible American Express cards are those enrolled with the Membership Rewards program (not the hotel or airline co-branded AMEX cards). There does not appear to be a limit to how many bonus MR points you can earn through this promotion.
  • This promotion can be stacked with the Southwest Rapid Rewards bonus points offer in the previous post. And you can earn both bonuses in addition to the normal SPG points you earn on stays.
  • The bonus MR points will be sent via an email certificate 4-6 weeks after this promotion ends. You can redeem the points online through the Membership Rewards website, and points will post to your account within 24 hours.
  • You must register for this promotion prior to your first stay during the promotion period.
