Hotel Reward Programs

All this warm weather has me thinking about summer vacation–and signing up for hotel reward programs. These programs are free to join, they provide easy online enrollment and management, and they give you many ways to earn and redeem points. In addition, if you belong to a frequent-flier program, you can add to your mileage.
