http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/15/idUS118837316120110515 To celebrate its first birthday this week Stash Hotel Rewards is offering Stash member guests 1,000 bonus points for stays at a Stash Rewards hotel partner this week from Monday, May 16 through Friday, May 20. There are a couple of good bonus opportunities currently running with Stash Hotel Rewards including Loyalty Traveler’s very own new member sign-up link for 1,000 bonus points. Full disclosure: Loyalty Traveler receives no incentive bonus for new members using this link to join Stash Hotel Rewards. Jeff Low, CEO of Stash Hotel Rewards, had lunch with me a few months ago in Monterey and set up this Stash Rewards new member link for 1,000 bonus points as a courtesy to Loyalty Traveler readers. Affinia Hotels in New York and Chicago offer first time guests 5,000 bonus points for stays through July 31 on reservations booked by May 31, 2011. Several hotels on the Stash Rewards Specials page currently have free night offers or Double, Triple and 2,000 bonus points offers.
