Hotel "Bonus Points" Packages

Postby CarefulBuilder14 » Mon Aug 03, 2015 10:39 pm

When browsing hotel websites (Marriott and IHG, in particular) I've seen special hotel rates where a room may cost $10 more but the guest gets an extra 1000 points. Usually, the extra points aren't cheap.

Are these rates targeting business travelers who are getting their expenses reimbursed, and don't care if they spend more of their companies' money? Or do the special rates serve some other purpose?
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card
