Radisson recently rolled out this amazing deal, where if you stay only 1 night at any Radisson or Radisson Blu hotels around the world between May 15, 2012 to July 15, 2012, you will automatically get 50,000 Gold Points, redeemable for 1 night at any Category 6 hotel (highest), or 5 nights at Category 1 hotel.

In some US cities, you can get a room at Radisson for ~$150 or so, but you can redeem it for any Category 6 hotels which can go for as high as almost $450 a night.

Updated: Best Western Matches Elite Status in Any Hotel

Posted on 14 January 2012 by Danica

UPDATE: We got matched to Diamond Elite status!  Four days after sending in our request we logged into our account and there it was.  Upgraded to elite status w/o spending a night!  We will be staying at a Best Western in Brazil soon so this will come in handy for it.


As we are planning for our upcoming trip today, we are surprised to learn that Best Western matches elite status in any hotel loyalty program. This is part of their Status Match…No Catch ® program and is free of charge. Many other hotel brands either no longer status match or requires members to complete a challenge (x nights within x days) to qualify.

Now, we know Best Western is no Park Hyatt or Marriott, but with a free status match, it may not be a bad option to consider if you are traveling for a long time (aka round the world for months like we are). Sometimes, other hotels simply sold out on selected dates unless you book well in advance (think the Carnival in Rio – btw, click here if you want to find out which day of the carnival you should buy ticket for in 2012), or you want to save some money to go to more expansive hotel in other locations.

According to the Best Western Rewards website, all members receive the following benefits:

  • 10 BWR® points for every U.S. dollar spent on qualified room rates,
  • 600 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards® Points, 20 AIR MILES reward miles or at least 250 airline/partner rewards on qualified stays at over 4,000 Best Western hotels throughout North, Central & South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa
  • Points that never expires

The program has three elite levels, their benefits are:

Gold (10 nights)

  • 10% point bonus per stay
  • Exclusive Elite-only offers
  • Dedicated Gold Elite customer service line

Platinum (15 nights)

  • 15% point bonus per stay
  • Exclusive Elite-only offers
  • Dedicated Platinum customer service line
  • Best available room (may not include specialty rooms or suites)
  • When available, early check-in/late check-out
  • Welcome snack and beverage OR 250 bonus points † (hotels in U.S., Canada and Caribbean only)

Diamond (30 nights)

  • 30% point bonus per stay
  • Exclusive Elite-only offers
  • Dedicated Diamond customer service line
  • Best available room (may not include specialty rooms or suites)
  • When available, early check-in/late check-out
  • Welcome snack and beverage OR 250 bonus points † (hotels in U.S., Canada and Caribbean only

We just submitted our request to Best Western to match our Diamond status in the Hyatt hotel. We will report back the results once it’s completed.

Posted on 05 January 2012 by Danica

You can earn instant Platinum status here at the A|Club, the loyalty program of the Accor Hotels group.  The Accor Hotels group includes brands such as Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery, Ibis and Mercure.

A|Club has four membership levels: Classic, Silver, Gold and Platinum, with Platinum being the highest tier.  The Platinum tier typically requires 60 nights stay or 25K A|Club points to be eligible.

According to the A|Club website, the Platinum level benefits include:

“- 100% A|Club points bonus for every stay
Exclusive benefits at Sofitel*, Pullman and MGallery hotels.
– Welcome drink and gift
– Room upgrade**
– Late check-out up to 4:00 pm**
– A room always available if you reserve at least 3 days before your arrival.
– A Thalassa sea & spa Institute beauty and treatment product when you stay at Sofitel Thalassa sea & spa
– A welcome gift for any stay of 10 nights or more at Adagio, plus late check-out**
– Dedicated customer service

If you don’t have a A|Club account yet, just click on the link to enroll.  If you already have an account, you will have to call Accor customer service to see if your account is eligible for upgrade.  The promotion seems to be targeted for HSBC Premier customers, so try and see if it works for you.
