How to get free nights or for only 18$ to 24$ a night at nice hotel chains? Well again by travel hacking with credit cards that gives welcome bonuses.

In Canada, we only have 3 credit cards that gives bonuses for hotels program:

  • 1st: (Update Sep 5th this card is no longer available anymore) Marriott Rewards visa by chase 04-07-2016 12-38-32 AM

This card you will receive a free night stay E-Certificate valide for 12 months at any participating category 1-4 Marriott hotels worldwide, plus you will get a 50000 points after your first card purchase that you can redeem for 6 Free Nights at a Category 1 hotel, so possible of 7 nights free just by getting this card. Change made recently, no more E-certificate when you open the account, you will get one at the anniversary every year after if you keep the card.

The card also have a annual fee of $120 waived for the first year and if you keep it for the second year they will charge 120$ for it but you’ll get another E-Certificate valide for 12 months at any participating category 1-5 Marriott hotels worldwide, if you don’t want to continue, just cancel this card before the annual fee for the 2sc year so you’ll pay 0$ for those free nights.


I already use 1 night in Milan Italy, also you can see that I got the 50000 points, so I still got 42500 points left for other free nights.

Since Sept 23 2016 with the fusion between Marriot and SPG, you are now able to transfer points between the 2 programs.

23-09-2016 5-06-09 PM

Ex: 50000 Marriott rewards = 16666 SPG Starpoints (3:1). With 16666 Starpoints, you can stay up to 6 nights at a SPG category 1 hotels or 4 nights at a SPG category 2 hotels.

Here is the link to get the Visa Marriott credit card with the 50000 points https://www.marriottpremier.ca/?JOBNUM=VMR1207059&arv=lp12

  • 2sc: Amex Starwood preferred guest (SPG) img-starwood-190x120

Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express points offer of 20,000 Bonus Starpoints through this referral offer when you charge $500  now $1500 in purchases on your Card in the first 3 months of Cardmembership,  that’s enough for up to 6 free nights.

With this card, you don’t get a free 1st year so you will have to pay 120$ annual fee but what do I get for that 120$ ? You will get a 5 nights stay at any category 2 Starwood hotel (3800 points a night), comes up to 24 $ a night so good deal here !! Or transfert 20000 SPG points to 25000 Aeroplan miles, enough for a round trip flight in the USA and Canada as low as only 14$ see how here .

Ex: With 20000 SPG points, you can stay up to 6 nights In Quebec city, Las Vegas or Rome Italy. 6 nights in Quebec city at 178$ a night = 890$, you pay only 120$ in fees for the card to get those 6 SPG free nights with points less than 20$ each night.

04-07-2016 1-08-56 AM 04-07-2016 1-11-58 AM 04-07-2016 1-11-05 AM

Also if you refer your spouse or traveling partner, you’ll get another 10000 points (Since Sept 28th it’s 5000 points)  for your referral, then your partner will have to pay the 120$ fee and spend 1500$ on the card to get his or her 20000 points, so the total you’ll get together 60000 45000 points for 240$, gives you around 12 nights (Category 1 and 2) at 3800 points a night = 20$ a night.

I booked myself 4 nights with this card see here:  1 in Quebec city this summer, 1 in Amsterdam and 2 nights in Rome Italy when I went in Europe last May.

Ex: With 26000 Starpoints you can book 7 nights in Las Vegas Four Points for juste 120$ in fees for the Amex SPG card, that’s a 17$ night stay.
