Business Traveler (USA) - - LOYALTY -

And a Re­minder for AAd­van­tage Mem­bers

In 2015, Amer­i­can Air­lines is re­ward­ing cus­tomers who are mem­bers of ei­ther Amer­i­can’s AAd­van­tage or US Air­ways’ Div­i­dend Miles pro­grams with bonus miles when they pur­chase First or Busi­ness Class tick­ets on all el­i­gi­ble flights mar­keted or op­er­ated by Amer­i­can or US Air­ways. The pro­mo­tion ap­plies to all travel through Dec. 31, 2015.

Com­plete de­tails are Wyn­d­ham Re­wards has an­nounced a stream­lined loy­alty pro­gram with a sin­gle re­demp­tion rate of just 15,000 points and a guar­an­teed 1,000 points per stay. The new pro­gram of­fers mem­bers a gen­er­ous points earn­ing struc­ture and a flat, free night re­demp­tion rate – the first of its kind for a ma­jor, mem­ber re­wards pro­gram.

Un­der the pro­gram mem­bers can now earn free nights faster at more than 7,500 Wyn­d­ham Re­wards prop­er­ties. Mem­bers who want to re­deem their points sooner or stay longer for less can book a night at avail­able ho­tels for just 3,000 points plus cash. For ev­ery qual­i­fied stay, mem­bers now earn 10 points for ev­ery dollar spent or a min­i­mum of 1,000 points per stay, whichever is more.

Be­gin­ning on May 11, mem­bers will see their ex­ist­ing points au­to­mat­i­cally trans­ferred into the new pro­gram. Fol­low­ing the launch of the pro­gram, a new up­dated mo­bile app will be launched. Up­dated world-class elite membership tiers for the pro­gram’s most loyal mem­bers are ex­pected to roll out later this fall.
