March 12 Update: Stash Hotel Rewards now offers 3x points on approved non-Stash hotels and 7 new bonus offers


Stash Hotel Rewards, the independent loyalty program built around independent boutique-style hotels has a new ongoing offer that could be of interest to those of you who prefer to stay at non-chain hotels. They now have Stash Approved Hotels - these are hotels that do not participate in Stash Rewards but rather are a selection of hotels from their book any hotel option. That's right, Stash awards you points for booking hotels via their site that are not Stash Hotel Rewards properties (think Rocketmiles, Kaligo, Pointshound) and typically they award you with 1 point per US$1 spent on those hotels. Well these new Stash Approved Hotels will earn 3x the points, so 3 points per US$1 spent before taxes and fees. When you search for hotels on Stash Rewards site you'll see in the box of each property whether the hotel is Stash Approved or not. Here is an example from Toronto:
The good news is that Stash uses Booking.com as their booking engine and they typically have very competitive rates. In the case of the Broadview hotel in Toronto they are all pretty much equivalent which means by booking via Stash you'd get the 3 points per dollar plus whatever points or miles your credit card earns.

However depending on how and where you collect miles and points you may want to check other options - we checked PointsHound and Rocketmiles - PointsHound had the same price and awarded 700 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles and Rocketmiles offered the same price with 708 Aeroplan miles - both of which in my mind are worth more than the Stash points - that is unless you aren't as interested in the miles and are partial to using points for boutique hotel stays!
PointsHound price is the same and earns 700 Mileage Plan miles
