Ken and his wife Emily write about using points and miles (and saving money) on Disney trips at Mousehacking.com. So I’ve asked them to share their tips on booking stays at Walt Disney World and Disneyland using free nights from hotel credit cards.
Ken and Emily: There are a few ways to save on hotels at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, like booking with points or using Citi’s 4th night free. But what about getting a truly free night?
There are hotel credit cards that offer a free hotel night each year, and some of them can be used for free nights near Disney parks!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Amanda, commented:
I applied for the limited-time AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus on the last day of the offer. But I was approved the day after the offer ended when the sign-up bonus decreased. Will I earn the higher sign-up bonus?
Great question, Amanda!
Lots of folks wait until the end of a limited-time offer to apply for a card. And this could be the reason your application isn’t instantly approved.
But as long as you submit your card application before the limited-time offer ends, you’re eligible to earn the sign-up bonus that was available on the day you applied.
