Here is the InsideFlyer summary on the main hotel chain-wide promotions available in April 2022.
Hilton’s first promotion of 2022 started on January 1st and runs throughout April. Members earn 2,500 bonus points per STAY.
2,500 bonus points is worth $12.50 at best. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus (but not for long, expensive stays!)
You can also earn these bonus points on award stays.
World of Hyatt
Hyatt’s first promotion of 2022 started on January 15th and runs until April 20th. (you must check out on or before that date)
Members can earn 2,022 bonus points every SECOND night.
Confusingly, Hyatt credit card holders can also earn 1,000 bonus points per STAY at selected hotels in the United States.
The worldwide promotion works out to 1,011 bonus points per night, worth roughly $15-18. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.
However, you also earn these bonus points on award stays.
Marriott’s first promotion of 2022 started on February 8th and will run throughout April. Members can earn double elite status credit and 1,000 bonus points per night.
1,000 bonus points per night is worth roughly $6-8. For an inexpensive stay, this can be a reasonable bonus. But for expensive stays you won’t be happy with the % rebate.
The double elite night element will be very attractive to those readers chasing Marriott elite status.
IHG is offering a promotion for April that appears to be targeted, but seems open to most members.
Since IHG points are worth 0.4-0.5 cents each, 2,000 points per night (on average) is worth $8-10.
You should be able to find a promotion that works for you in April 2022. However, none of the promotions on offer reward big spenders…
