Similar to last weeks offer on our global site, FrequentFlyerBonuses.com, we are excited to announce that Rewards Canada has teamed up with PointsHound.com for a 5 day Bonus Offer. Keep on reading for the details!
For over two years we have been providing coverage of PointsHound right here on Rewards Canada so our seasoned followers should know this site well. However for those of you who have not heard of or perhaps have forgotten about
them, PointsHound.com is a third party hotel booking site that awards
loyalty program miles and points for booking hotels via their site. The
U.S. based site was recently acquired by Points (the Canadian company based in Toronto responsible
for most program’s buy/share/gift miles offers) and since that time they
have added more partners with Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles being the latest and heftily increased the amount of miles/points you
can earn on hotel bookings.
One of those changes has been the addition of their ‘Big Earn Rate’
hotels which earn you the most possible miles/points on your booking.
These hotels can be identified on the PointsHound site with a tag “Big
Earn Rate” on the hotel’s picture. A quick search of hotels in Toronto showed these Hot Deals hotels offering between 8 and 14 times
the regular amount of miles that PointsHound would award for a stay.
These ‘Big Earn Rates” are only available for bookings made in USD or
CAD. This is great news for those of us here in Canada, by choosing CAD you get to avoid foreign transaction fees on your credit card and get a very competitive exchange rate that matches the actual markets (see the XE.com screenshot below)
|PointsHound.com had the Sheraton Toronto Airport at US$150 or C$161|
Overall the site is a great way to earn more miles and points than you could regularly within an airline program for stays at many hotels or even from hotels that don’t partner with an airline or hotel loyalty program. By booking a stay via PointsHound.com you are looking at a good way to boost the balance(s) in your favourite program that is a participating partner.
