25% Transfer Bonus for Converting Hotel Points to Airline Miles

Via One Mile at a Time, you can convert hotel points from 9 hotel programs to American Airlines and receive a 25% bonus through June 15, 2017.

I usually do NOT recommend transferring hotel points to airlines, because you’ll get much less value per point.  But there are some situations where it makes sense!

Does This Trick Reset the Expiration Date for Your Hotel Points?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Kris, commented:

My hotel points expire in April 2017.  If I use them to book an award stay for February 2018, can I cancel the stay in January 2018 and get the points back?

Points in most hotel loyalty programs expire after 12 to 24 months of no earning or redemption activity.  Although there are a few exceptions.

But reader Kris suggested a way to keep hotel points from expiring that works with some hotel chains.  But I’d caution folks to read the cancellation policy before using this trick.  Because you don’t want to risk losing your points!

Hotel Points Expiration

The Best Way to Keep Points From Expiring Is by Booking Award Stays at Hotels Like the Hyatt Centric Chicago!

I’ll explain which chains work to use the book and cancel trick.  And remind y’all some easy ways you can generate activity in your hotel loyalty account to keep points alive!

New Bonus: No-Annual-Fee Wyndham Card With $50 Statement Credit

Need more Wyndham points?  The normal offer for the no-annual-fee version of the Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards card is 18,000 Wyndham points after meeting minimum spending requirements.

But if you make a test booking on the Wyndham website, you’ll see an offer for 15,000 Wyndham points after meeting minimum spending requirements.  Plus a $50 statement credit when you spend a total of $2,000 on purchases in the same timeframe.

In some cases, this could be a better deal, even though you’re earning fewer bonus points.  But you shouldn’t consider these offers if you’re new to miles and points.

Emily and I don’t earn anything from the Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards card, but we’ll always share new deals with our readers!
