Accor Hotels are offering triple Rewards Points for stays across Asia Pacific between 10 June and 10 September 2017.

To be eligible for this promotion, simply activate the offer on the Accor website.

A total of 700 hotels are included within the promotion across the Asia Pacific region. I consider the Accor Hotels LeClub loyalty program to offer a fairly decent return for spend (see The best hotel chain for airline points) and so the triple points multiplier is definitely worthwhile.

In related Accor news, the new Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour will be opening in October 2017. The hotel looks great and I can’t wait to check it out.

Quadruple Qantas Points with Hilton

Hilton are offering quadruple ‘Double Dip’ points with Qantas for stays between 9 April 2017 and 31 July 2017.

Hilton are offering quadruple ‘Double Dip’ points with Qantas Frequent Flyer for stays between 9 April 2017 and 31 July 2017.

This offer appears from time to time and offers fairly good value. I booked a stay in 2016 using this offer and received over 900 Qantas Points (and Hilton Honors points) for a single night stay.

To receive the quadruple Qantas Points, simply register for the offer and ensure your Earning Style in your Hilton Honors profile is set to Points & Miles.

The usual earn rate for Points & Miles is 1 Qantas Point per USD spent. This offer will generate 4 Qantas Points per USD spent, a fairly decent benefit.

I used to be a big fan of the Hilton program and am currently still using my complimentary Hilton Honors Diamond account from Velocity Frequent Flyer, however I’ve been turned off the program in recent times due to the limited number of hotels in Australia (including the upcoming closure of Hilton Melbourne South Wharf) and lack of any expansion plans.

This offer will yield between 5 and 9 Rewards points per Australian dollar spent depending on what AccorHotels LeClub tier you hold, from Classic to Platinum. These Rewards points convert into both Qantas and Velocity Points at a rate of 1:1, making this a great offer.

Register for the promotion at the AccorHotels website.

Accor Rewards points are a valuable points currency that can be transferred to many airline partners, including Qantas Frequent Flyer, Velocity Frequent Flyer, Etihad Guest, Emirates Skywards and Asia Miles.

Earn bonus CommBank Awards points with hotel bookings via Kaligo

Earn 15 CommBank Awards points on Kaligo hotel bookings with your CommBank Awards card in addition to your regular points earn.  

Kaligo can be a great way to pick up frequent flyer miles for programs that reside outside of Australia, such as Singapore Airlines and Etihad, which are generally difficult to earn domestically. A relatively new option is the ability to earn CommBank Awards points from your Kaligo bookings, instead of frequent flyer points. These can be later converted to Velocity Points or used in the CommBank Awards store. 

The current earn rate is 15 CommBank Awards points per dollar spent on Kaligo with your CommBank credit card, in addition to the regular earn rate from your card (depending on its type).

This option may be useful for people looking to top up their CommBank Awards balances.

My very first credit card and rewards credit card was with CommBank, however I have since moved away from the program finding alternatives that offer much better value.
