Following is our regular summary of the best frequent traveler promotions reviewed during the past week.
If it was a good deal—or a notably bad deal—from an airline, hotel, or car rental loyalty program, you can read all about it here, and plan your travel accordingly.
Hilton HHonors members can earn a free night after five or more consecutive nights at a participating Hilton resort booked by January 31, 2012, and completed by April 30, 2012.
If you're already planning a resort stay, the free night is icing on the cake.
Enter Wyndham's contest by January 10, 2012, by submitting a photo of the worst holiday gift you've ever received.
The grand prize: 2 million Wyndham Rewards points.
TrueBlue members can earn triple base points for JetBlue tickets purchased by December 30 and flown by February 15, 2012.
Definitely an extra reason to consider JetBlue for any trips during the promotion period (but mind the blackout dates).
Between December 1 and December 31, members of Frontier's EarlyReturns program can earn double elite-qualifying miles for any and all mileage-qualifying flights.
Double elite miles? Good. Double Frontier elite miles? Well ...
Marriott Rewards members may now use their Rewards points, or a combination of points and cash, to book airline flights and car rentals.
The new awards deliver convenience but questionable value.
