If you want to earn more hotel points on your next stay, it might be as easy as registering for a promotion. Hotel loyalty programs frequently offer limited-time offers to earn bonus points on qualifying stays which can potentially double—or more—the number of points you earn from your reservation.
Though specific promotions come and go, most hotel brands offer several different earning opportunities throughout the year. The terms of each promo vary, but one thing usually stays the same—you’ll need to register in advance in order to receive your bonus points. It’s worth the few seconds it takes to enter your membership number while you’re thinking about it. That way, you’ll still get the bonus points even if the promotion later slips your mind or if registration closes prior to your stay.
Another commonality with all promotions is qualifying stays almost always need to be booked directly through the brand. Rooms booked through online travel agencies are typically excluded from bonus promotions (and earning points in general). Be sure to book directly from the hotel’s website, app, call center or even at the front desk to ensure you qualify.

Best Western Rewards
Earn 2,000 Bonus Points for Every Pay With Points Stay

All properties in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean qualify for this promotion.
Registration is required prior to your qualifying stay and there are no limits to the number of points you can earn with this promotion.

Radisson Rewards Americas
Earn 5,000 Bonus Points on Every Stay in the Americas
Members can earn an additional 5,000 points on every stay through June 30, 2022. Registration is required and there is no minimum length of stay. However, you can earn a maximum of 100,000 points (equivalent to 20 eligible stays) through this promotion.
World of Hyatt
Earn 5,000 Bonus Points at Participating Resorts
World of Hyatt is offering an additional 5,000 bonus points on stays of three nights or longer at participating Inclusive Collection resorts in the Americas. This includes locations with select Breathless, Dreams, Secrets, Sunscape and Zoëtry all-inclusive resort properties.
Registration is required prior to your stay or August 15, whichever comes first, and your stay must be completed by September 15, 2022. A maximum of 25,000 bonus points (or five stays) can be earned through this promotion.
Earn 7,500 Bonus Points After Two Stays
For reservations through September 6, 2022, Wyndham is offering bonus points after your second stay. The promotion is advertised as earning a “free night” but is actually delivered as 7,500 bonus points. As suggested, that’s enough for a free night at select properties but with the flexibility to instead save up for a stay at a more expensive hotel in the future.
Registration is required prior to your stay with a cut-off on September 2, though valid stays can extend through September 6. Additionally, this promotion caps after four stays (a total of 15,000 bonus points).
Promotions can be a fast way to increase your earnings rates and meet redemption goals faster. Nearly all promotions require registration in advance and it never hurts to register for any promotions in your preferred programs even if you don’t have immediate reservations in case your travel plans change.
