    Just saw a great new promo on via hotels.com - The Great Unloyaling. It's at:

    www.thegreatunloyaling.com

    You sign up, prove that you're in 3 other hotel programs, and they give you one free Welcome Rewards night as well as FiveStar (elite level) benefits. Only catch is that you have to be a new Welcome Rewards member.

    Pretty cool deal - check it out.

    Note this important line:
    After we have verified your activity in three (3) separate major hotel loyalty programs, and after you have completed your qualifying stay by November 15, 2011, your account will be updated to reflect the free night.

    My only problem with this promo is that most of my stays are either on points or involved with other promos. However, it was a breeze to sign up and send them records of stays in three different programs. Now, I'll just have to see if I have a paid stay this summer that I can use with this promo. Might just work for a free night............

    Thanks to Alex for posting here and to gleff for posting on View From the Wing blog. thumbs-up.gif

    I dont understand how that reconciles with Item 3 in the terms which says you make the booking with the coupon code. Based on the spirit of the offer, I think the statement quoted by Mr Deere is probably the one that is off kilter, but it is indeed worth checking with hotels.com to be sure. It does look like the terms are a bastardized combination of their existing stay 10, get one free deal terms and terms they were thinking of for this promo.

    Seems like the cap on room rate is $400.

    It appears you boom a room with the coupon code then after the stay, you get the free night.

    Your read is that you have to stay one paid night to get a free night?

    Does anyone know if you have to use the "free night" by 11/15 or do you just have to complete the original stay by that date. If so, how long do you have to use the free night?
