July 17 Update: NH Hotels relaunches their loyalty program, Credit Card Travel Medical Insurance, Petro-Points bonus via iTravel2000

Thursday brings us another relaunched hotel program.

News, Tips & Tricks

Yesterday we brought you the details of Kimpton Hotels relaunched program and they are not the only ones to have a change. Spanish based NH Hotels who have hotels in Europe and Latin America have also relaunched their program as NH Rewards.  NH Rewards now awards 3% of your stays in points (essentially a 3% cash back program) which is higher return than some of the other cash back type hotel programs like World Hotels Peakpoints and Preferred Hotel Group’s iPrefer. The new program also offers to option to use your points at anytime for redemption via their cash+points option. The interesting thing with the new NH Rewards is they will always reward you with the 3% back whether you pay for the stay with cash or points! Elite levels in the program are awarded even more points and more benefits. No matter what, if you have an NH Hotel stay you should join the program to make sure you get free Wi-Fi.
