I'm about to embark on a five week trip through Southeast Asia. I primarily will be staying at low cost hotels, hostels, and traveling by means of public transportation where available. I'm searching for the best way to maximize my miles and points while also staying on a shoestring budget. The only applicable card I carry is the Sapphire card. So far I've been able to book a few rooms via Travelocity UR purchases, and and seen another option of using hotels.com via the UR site. So I ask, is this the best way to accumulate miles/points on approximately 20-30 hotel stays? I've seen AA is offering 1000 bonus miles through booking on their site, but havnt been able to weigh my best option to maximize points. Any low cost hotel loyalty programs I'm over thinking? Any help is greatly appreciated.
