Hotel Promotions

Free Hilton HHonors Gold Status Still Live

I am honestly surprised that Hilton hasn’t pulled this promo yet but Online Travel Review points out that the Hilton HHonors which I posted about here is still working!

Besides getting an Elite earning bonus, you also get FREE BREAKFAST & FREE INTERNET!

These are the two most important things in my book, as I can’t stand luxury hotels that nickel and dime you for internet access when Holiday Inn gives you free internet and a free Continental Breakfast!

This Gold status also applies to reward stays!

As I also pointed out earlier, you may be able to use this status to get a status match at other hotels.



Starwood Quarter 1 Promo Now Open For Registration

Although I don’t usually take advantage of these hotel promos unless I am actually traveling, I’m sure there are more than a few FFU reader’s that do mattress runs. Unfortunately for me, living in downtown Chicago limits the amount of cheap hotels to mattress run at : (

I received an email today indicating that Starwood’s Quarter 1 promotion was open for registration.

Even if you aren’t planning on mattress running, it is always better to sign up and not use the promotion than have some unexpected travel come up and then be ineligible for the promotion because you missed the sign up deadline!

Although this promo isn’t super lucrative, if you have a Starwood Preferred Guest credit card and are planning on staying more than 3 nights, it is better than nothing!

Question of the day: Have you ever done a mattress run before?
