Plan to Stay at a Hotel Chain Property? Stash This!

FlyerTalk is all about the discussion of miles and points. However, there are FlyerTalk members who prefer to stay at independent hotels where they may have a unique experience at each property. The only problem is that staying at such hotels did not earn points, usually because there was no frequent guest loyalty program…

…until now.

Introducing a New loyalty scheme for US independent hotels that was launched recently called Stash Hotel Rewards, in which membership is complimentary. There are currently 65 independent properties in 50 cities in the United States, with possibly 200 properties participating by the end of the year.

Five Stash points are earned for every dollar spent on eligible room rates. A member will reportedly be able to earn a free night after five stays at Stash partner Hotels. Among other features and benefits, Stash Hotel Rewards members can earn points by booking hotels for others — an unusual feature for a frequent guest loyalty program — and can book up to two eligible rooms for the same dates and earn points on both of them.
