TripRewards Fall Promotion - $25 Gift Card or 500 Bonus Miles
Published 9/12/07 (Modified 3/8/11)
It looks like I may be taking a few overnight road trips in the next few weeks. It's a pleasure to stay at an elegant hotel, but sometimes you just want to crash at a more basic place to save some money. The hotel and motel partners of TripRewards don't offer five star accommodation, but they do deliver a comfortable stay at a cheaper price. Their hotels include brands such as Days Inn, Ramada, and Super 8. You pretty much get what you pay for, but without breaking the bank. Through Trip Rewards, you can earn reward points for stays at participating hotels, redeemable for future stays or gift cards.
I'm not going out of my way to participate in the promotion. It's just something extra for something I was planning on doing anyway. :)
Earn Bonus Points, Enough For a $25 Gift Card
This fall, Trip Rewards is offering a bonus points promotion, for the redemption equivalent of a $25 gift card. Complete two separate stays at a participating hotel from now until December 27 and you'll earn enough points to redeem for a free $25 gift card. Remember, it's two separate stays so consecutive nights still count as one stay, regardless of check in and check out. You will still earn the usual 10 Trip Rewards points for every $1 spent at a participating hotel.
The terms and conditions indicate that the bonus points awarded will be equal to 5,500 less the number of regular Trip Rewards points you earn for your stays, but will be at least 3,500 points. To participate you have to register for TripRewards if you haven't already done so, and select the TripRewards points option.
Earn 500 Bonus Air Miles or Rail Points
The other promotional option lets you earn 500 bonus air miles or rail points if you stay twice at a TripRewards participating hotel from now until December 28. This is on top of the 2 miles per $1 you will still earn. To participate you have to register with TripRewards and select to earn air miles or rail points in your membership profile.
