‘Tis the season!!
If you’re like me and in this program, you can DEFINITELY take advantage of some incredible perks!! From maximizing Points to cashing them in for once-in-a-lifetime gifts, you might not realize the extra value that your loyalty program can provide during the busy holiday season.
What can you expect?
Here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind during the next few week of holiday shopping!
- Points Shopping Mall: Many loyalty programs have shopping malls that allow you to use your points to purchase things like electronics, travel gear, accessories and more. Hilton takes things a step further and allows members to earn Hilton HHonors Points for purchases made through hundreds of major retailers via the Shop-to-Earn Mall where you can pick up gifts from brands like Apple, Anthropologie, Bloomingdales and more, all while earning Points per dollar spent.
- Cobranded Credit Cards: Opt for using a credit card that gives you the ability to earn points for every dollar spent. Pay extra attention to holiday deals and promotions if you’re planning a trip with loved ones during the holidays – often times you can earn even more points for purchasing flights, hotels and car rentals with your card during this time of year.
- Experiences Worth Giving: Give the memory of a lifetime by creatively redeeming your points. For example, Hilton HHonors allow members to bid on unique experiences via the Auction Platform. Events ranging from VIP race car driving in Mexico to a spa day with country star Kelsea Ballerini will help you take gift giving to the next level.
- The Gift that Gives Back: For family and friends who have it all, consider making a donation on their behalf through your loyalty program’s gifting platform. Websites like PointWorthy allow loyalty members to choose between hundreds of charities to donate points in exchange for a cash donation to a cause they care about.
