Booking rooms thought AA Shopping Portal
i just noticed that the AA Shopping portal has hotel chains as earning partners. For example the Crowne Plaza is 3 miles / $1. Will booking through the shopping portal cause a hotel to treat the stay like an OTA (where you wouldn’t earn nights / points), or, will they treat it like a repeal link to thier website and give all the goodness as though you had booked direct? Mbasically,mob a cash stay, any reason to not go through the AA shopping portal?
No, there is no reason. As you’re booking through the hotel website, you’ll be treated as a direct booking.
