Summary of global hotel systemwide bonus points promotions – December Edition


Here is your monthly update of all the global hotel bonus points promotions that are available! One of the easiest ways to rack up lots of hotel points is to take advantage of these systemwide bonuses that come from many of the big chain programs and also from the lesser known programs. In fact, right now it should be rare for you NOT to earn a bonus. Unless you are staying at a boutique hotel or perhaps an independent hotel most other hotels out there have a bonus. So take advantage of it! These systemwide bonuses simply require you to register beforehand and they do not affect hotel pricing as long as you book a point eligible rate which are most rates out there. Of course booking through a third party site like Expedia or Rocketmiles does not count as most chains only award points on bookings that are made directly with them. Without further ado here are all the current promotions that are available to everyone:

Best Western Rewards Earn up to $60 in Best Western Gift Cards when you complete stays at Best Western Hotels Worldwide.

AccorHotels and their loyalty program Le Club AccorHotels has now become ALL - Accor Live Limitless.

The program will see the addition of a Diamond elite status level, enriched benefits for elite members and new partnerships that will expand the experience side of the program. Learn more here.


We have added the Laurentian Bank Visa DOLLARS card to our Cash Back Comparison chart. See the chart here.


Diners Club Club Rewards has reduced the number of airline and hotel transfer partners for Canadians. I'm not exactly sure when this happened - it could have been quite sometime ago as I haven't look at the full list in awhile. Anyways they used to have 21 airline and hotel programs that you could transfer Club Rewards points to and that has now dropped to 16. Gone are Amtrak Guest Rewards, World of Hyatt, Marriott Bonvoy and Korean Air SkyPass. Learn more here.
