1.   A Few Fast Marriott Points

You can earn points for interacting with Marriott on social media.  And you’ll earn a quick 25 points by linking your Twitter and Instagram.  It only takes a few clicks.

Still, it’s easy and free!

3.   20% to 50% Off IHG Hotels

If you’ve been able to get in on the cheap fares to European cities like Barcelona, Dublin, and London and still need a place to stay, Head for Points writes that you can save 20% to 30% at select IHG hotels in Europe.

This deal is open to MasterCard holders and good for reservations made by March 31, 2016, for stays through December 31, 2016.  You must book at least 21 days in advance.

You’ll get:

  • 30% off at participating Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Staybridge Suites hotels on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night stays
  • 20% off and free breakfast for up to 2 people at participating InterContinental hotels on Friday and Saturday night stays

The discounts are based on the “Best Flexible Rate.”  So you’re NOT saving a full 30% off the best available rate.  But you can still find some good deals!
