I am all about the free miles, so if you have any hotel stays coming up, you might be eligible for 1,000 bonus miles. Although Delta and US Airways miles aren’t the world’s most valuable currency, these promotions might make sense for some stays.
Earn 1,000 Bonus Delta SkyMiles or US Airways Dividend Miles with a Stay at Marriott, JW Marriott, Renaissance, or Gaylord branded hotels (other Marriott family hotels not eligible)
For your bonus miles, you’ll need to register (for Delta or US Airways) and book by today, January 15, for stays through February 15 and set your earnings preference to Delta or US Airways miles rather than Marriott points (you can change it back after the promotional period). Check the list of participating properties before assuming you’ll earn bonus miles. You’ll earn 1,000 bonus miles per stay, up to a maximum of 10,000 miles during the promotional period, and should see your miles in 6-8 weeks after your stay. Unfortunately, if you’re working toward free night certificates as part of the Marriott MegaBonus, you won’t be able to stack these offers.
Earn 1,000 Bonus with a Stay at Westin Hotels & Resorts
Westin Hotels in the United States, Canada, and Caribbean are offering 1,000 bonus Delta SkyMiles per stay through March 31 when you stay two or more nights (or try this link if you prefer US Airways Dividend Miles). You’ll need to set your earnings preference to miles and book using rate code WMILES. You may want to compare this rate against other offers to make sure you’re not paying extra just for a few miles.
Earn 1,000 Bonus when You Stay in Club Rooms with Sheraton
Sheraton is offering a similar 1,000 airline miles per stay through March 31, 2014. In this case, even one-night stays are eligible, though you’ll need to book a club room, which are more expensive accommodations which also include access to the club lounge (for complimentary internet access, continental breakfast, appetizers, and bottled water). Book using code SHMILES and make sure your SPG account is set to earn airline miles rather than SPG points.
