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.

    Booking a hotel through aa.com actually fulfills through priceline. This means that you get your 250/500 miles but that is it, nothing counts towards nights stayed for that program, nor do you get any perks associated with a status that you might have.

    You’re right, I should have been more clear about that fact, and if you participate in a hotel loyalty program and make a reservation using AA.com, it’s very likely that you won’t be able to collect any points or miles from the hotel program. Most hotel programs won’t award points or provide loyalty program benefits unless you make the reservation directly through their site.

    The only time I use aa.com is when I’m not staying at a Starwood, Hilton, or IHG property. For example, Marriott isn’t an AAdvantage partner and I don’t stay with them often enough for their hotel points to matter to me, so if I’m staying at a Marriott I make my reservation though AA.com.

    Thanks for bringing that detail up, I appreciate the comment!
