I’m not as loyal to any one hotel program as I am to AAdvantage, so I do a little more shopping around when I make a hotel reservation. I usually look to find the most miles for my money and location is usually an important consideration for me.
I’m a big fan of Hilton Honors, Starwood Preferred Guest and try to concentrate my business with one of their brands, but from time to time when I can’t find a decent price or when I need to make a reservation at a smaller boutique property, I’ll use AA.com because I can earn 250 AAdvantage miles even if the property I’m staying at doesn’t partner with the AAdvantage program.
Through October 15, reservations made at AA.com will earn 500 AAdvantage Miles:
Book A Hotel And Reach Your Goal Faster
Earn double miles when you book your hotel on AA.com and get to your next vacation faster.
Simply book and complete your stay by October 15, 2011, and double your award, that’s 500 AAdvantage miles for every completed reservation.
With AA.com you get access to over 60,000 hotels and our Lowest Price Guarantee.
If you find a cheaper price anywhere on a hotel – we’ll match it!
This is a pretty good deal if you’re planning to stay with one of the AAdvantage hotel partners such as Comfort Inn, Clarion, La Quinta, or others that offer only 250 AA Miles per stay.
