This is your last chance to buy Marriott Rewards points with a 35% bonus – Ends today (Buy Starpoints and transfer into Marriott Rewards points).

The merger of Starwood and Marriott created the world’s largest hotel portfolio (over 5,700 properties, in over 110 countries, with a total of 1.1 million guest rooms). One of the main benefits since the merger is that you can transfer SPG Starpoints instantly into Marriott Rewards, and vice-versa (1 SPG Starpoint = 3 Marriott Rewards points). The fact that you can transfer points between both of the schemes means that you now have access to many more properties if you are looking to book a redemption award for either one or multiple nights. Status is also transferrable and matched between loyalty schemes. If you are looking to boost your Marriott points balance before the new loyalty scheme begins now is the time to buy SPG points and transfer them, meaning you can buy Marriott Rewards points with a 35% bonus.

With this points promotion running until 20th July 2018 this is likely to be the last SPG promotion available, since the new Marriott loyalty program will be forming in August. If you’re looking for Starpoints or Marriott Rewards points taking advantage of this promotion could represent a great deal.

The maximum purchase amount of 30,000 Starpoints transfers into 90,000 Marriott Rewards points. Alternatively, as Starwood currently partner with many airlines, several of which that do not sell their own currency (such as Lufthansa Miles & More), this could be a way to earn a bonus on airline mile purchases. Transfers to the majority of airlines is at a rate of 1:1, plus you receive an additional 5,000 airline miles when transferring in groups of 20,000 Starpoints.

To earn the 35% discount you need to purchase a minimum of 5,000 Starpoints before 20th July 2018. Purchases under 5,000 points do not receive a bonus.

Buy Starpoints with a 35% bonus and transfer into Marriott Rewards points.

It’s your last chance to purchase Radisson Rewards points (previously Club Carlson) with a 50% bonus. Offer ends 18th July 2018.

This points promotion is one of the first we have seen since the relaunch of the Radisson Rewards loyalty scheme for hotel brands including Radisson BluPark PlazaPark Inn, and Radisson Collection (originally Quorvus Collection). The 50% bonus when you purchase Radisson Rewards points runs until 18th July 2018. In the past Club Carlson, now Radisson Rewards, have been very quick at adding the purchased and bonus points into members account, usually only taking a couple of days. As soon as Radisson Rewards points have been deposited you can then use the points to book redemption nights (as either points, or a points and cash rate) at any of their hotel brands.

50% bonus when purchasing radisson rewards points

Normally, to receive a bonus when purchasing hotel points you need to purchase a large amount of points. With this promotion Radisson Rewards allow you to purchase from as little as 1,000 points, up to the maximum of 40,000 points annually. Radisson will credit up to 500 bonus Radisson Rewards points for every 1,000 points purchased. The amount of bonus points you earn depends on the amount you purchase.

  • Buy under 3,000 points and receive no bonus
  • Buy 3,000 – 10,000 points and receive a 10% bonus
  • Buy 11,000 – 30,000 points and receive a 25% bonus
  • Buy 31,000 – 40,000 points and receive a 50% bonus

The bonus points do not form part of the annual limit, so a total of 40,000 points can be purchased with a further 20,000 points being received as a bonus, for a cost of $280. That works out a £3.40 per 1,000 points ($4.60 per 1,000 points).

Buy Radisson Rewards points with a 50% bonus in the points sale.

Offer ends 18th July 2018.

You can also purchase hotel points in other major hotel loyalty schemes.

Amazon have been running their “£15 off your next Amazon order” code for American Express customer for the last 18 months. The £15 Amazon discount code is now scheduled to finish at the end of this month, 30th June. The offer has proved popular with our readers (probably due to the fact that you can purchase almost anything from their site). As the Amazon discount code is coming to an end you may want to consider the Amazon Platinum Mastercard, where you can earn 1.5% Amazon cashback, if you make regular purchases from Amazon.

£15 Amazon Discount

Amazon and American Express have been in partnership for a couple of years since they launched their “shop with points” feature for Amazon.co.uk shoppers. Shop with points allows you to use American Express Membership Rewards points to pay for items on Amazon. Each AMEX Rewards points converts to 0.45p towards your Amazon purchase. In addition to the existing feature you currently receive £15 off an order of £25 or more using a promo code. The £15 Amazon discount code is valid until 30th June 2018.

To apply the discount to your Amazon purchase you need to:

  • Link your Amazon and American Express account together
  • Add £25 or more to your Amazon shopping cart and select your American Express card as the payment method
  • Enter the promo code AMEX16SWP in the box provided on the checkout page
  • Pay for at least a portion of your order with Membership Rewards points

Sneaky tip! To use the £15 Amazon discount code you do not need to pay for the entire order using American Express Rewards points – you can part pay. Redeeming just a few points, such as 10p of the total order will trigger the discount. Even if you part pay with AMEX Rewards points you will still save £15 on your next Amazon order of £25 or more.

Read more about the £15 Amazon discount promotion using American Express Rewards points.

Earn 1.5% Amazon Cashback

Last year Amazon launched their branded credit card in the UK. The card offers rewards to Amazon users, so if you regularly purchase from Amazon, this is probably better than your existing points/miles Mastercard or Visa credit card. New signups to the Amazon Platinum Mastercard receive £10 of Amazon account credit. The card is free and has no annual fee.

Hilton have now extended their Hilton Honors status match policy, allowing you to get instant status from now up until 31st March 2020 (originally only until 2019). If you have elite status in another hotel chain and have stayed in the last 12 months Hilton will match you to a similar status in Hilton Honors. The status easily be transferred across to Hilton by completing the online Hilton status match form. The form can be used to match to Hilton Honors Gold or Diamond. Those who have elite status in another hotel loyalty scheme could be able to match to Hilton Diamond status instead of accumulating 30 stays, 60 nights or 120,000 base points with Hilton. You can no longer status match to Hilton Honors Silver.

The status match is valid instantly for 90 days, designed to give you a taste of elite status, and is extended until 31st March 2020 depending on which level you match to. If matched to Hilton Honors Gold your status will be extended to 31st March 2020 after completing 4 stays within 90 days. Hilton Honors Diamond requires 8 stays within 90 days. The key to being able to meet this stay requirement is to request a status match just before you plan on making your first stay.

Even if you have a mid tier status with another hotel the match is worth considering. Hilton Honors Gold status has one of the best mid-level hotel statuses offered by a chain hotel. Hilton Honors Gold status offers a complementary breakfast for guests at the majority of their hotels, and occasionally you will receive a free room upgrade (see all Hilton Honors Gold status benefits). Hilton Diamond status, which is the top Hilton Honors level, offers lounge access in addition to the Gold benefits (see all Hilton Honors Diamond status benefits).

 

You will first need to signup for a Hilton Honors account if you don’t have one already, then you can submit details of your existing status by completing the Hilton Honors status match form.

You can match your existing status from Choice Privileges, Hyatt, IHG, Marriott or SPG, though if you have status with another hotel chain that may be eligible as well.

Hilton Status Match

If you have elite status in another hotel chain and have stayed in the last 12 months Hilton will match you to a similar status in Hilton Honors. The status easily be transferred across to Hilton hotels by using a simple online form. The status match can be used to match to Hilton Honors Gold or Diamond. Using this as a Hilton Diamond status match is a quick way of transferring across status instead of accumulating 30 stays, 60 nights or 120,000 base points.

You can match your status with another hotel loyalty scheme to the following Hilton Honors status:

  • Match to Hilton Honors Gold – Complete 4 stays in 90 days to keep your status until 31st March 2020.
  • Match to Hilton Honors Diamond – Complete 8 stays in 90 days to keep your status until 31st March 2020.

Even if you have a mid tier status with another hotel the match is worth considering. Hilton Honors Gold status has one of the best mid-level hotel statuses offered by a chain hotel. Hilton Honors Gold status offers a complementary breakfast for guests at the majority of their hotels, and occasionally you will receive a free room upgrade. Hilton Diamond status, which is the top Hilton Honors level, offers lounge access in addition to the Gold benefits (see all Hilton Honors status benefits).

You will first need to signup for a Hilton Honors account if you don’t have one already, then you can submit details of your existing status by completing the Hilton Honors status match form.
