New Deals & Promotions Page
Several new and interesting travel promotions cropped up in the last few days so I thought I’d create a permanent Travel Deals Page on the site as a tool for keeping tabs on such things.
I’ll do my best to keep it updated as new deals emerge while old ones expire, but don’t hesitate to reach out when I miss something.
Check out the page for details, but here are some interesting ones:
Melia Hotels is offering 2,000 welcome points and 10,000 bonus points for signing up with its rewards program (bonus points expire April 30, 2014). At some Melia properties a free award night can be booked for 12,000 points, although those properties are rare. However, there is also value in that you can use points to defray the cost of a paid stay by booking a cash-and-points stay.
Even better, Melia offers what amounts to a buy-one-get-one-free night on your birthday:
I’ve only ever stayed at one Melia property (the Melia Barcelona Sarria) but really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend. Being a Spanish hotel chain, most properties are in Europe and Latin America, but overall there are properties on five continents.
Travelocity has several offers, including one for $40 off a $250+ hotel stay. See the Travel Deals Page for details and a double-dip tip.
Finally, Best Western is offering a $50 gift card for two stays completed by May 18, 2014.
