Any recommendation between the hotel CC offers: Hyatt, IHG or Club Carlson?
Love your blog, and hope all is well.
Quick question: my wife and I are going to Oahu late June to early July using miles (last minute trip before baby comes), but we haven’t done any hotel CCs yet, as we are newer to all of this. Any recommendation between the Hyatt CC sign up (each of us would sign up, giving 4 nights), or IHG, or Club Carlson cards? Do we have time to hit the spend and have the points post, or is it too late?
We can do a couple thousand in spend by then, which is why Hyatt or IHG ones sounded decent (2 nights with only $1,000 in spend), but I’m not sure if the points would post in time for us to book, or if one chain would let us book a paid visit to hold it, then convert it to a rewards night, etc.
Any insight is appreciated!
@ Eric — Congrats on the baby on the way! In general I’d say Hyatt is your best bet, and in my experience the free nights usually post shortly after the statement closes where you complete minimum spend. So I’d probably go with the Hyatt cards in your shoes.
