Best Travel Loyalty and Points Progams

My best advice for people looking to maximize their travel budget: Don't book ANY hotel or flight without attaching it to a loyalty program!

When you are signed up for a free hotel or airline loyalty program, you earn points for each flight and stay you complete. These points can then be redeemed for upgrades, discounted fares, free nights, or other travel perks. I don't know about you, but I like FREE stuff, especially when it comes to hotels and flights.
If you are not connecting your booking to a loyalty program and earning points on it, you are wasting future rewards.

I have made an easy list of the BEST airline and hotel loyalty programs you should have an account with. They are all free to sign up, and many give instant perks like free wifi or late checkout. Create accounts with any you think you might use in the near future and keep all the membership numbers and logins on your phone (or in a file if you are old school). This way you are ready to go when it comes time to book and you can always get the best price as well as collect major points.
