Get the App!!!
So a few conversations this week had me wondering how people keep track of anything – seriously.
I keep a spreadsheet of credit cards just so I know when certain fees kick in, how long I have had the card, etc. It doesn’t take more than a few minutes but it saves you huge headaches.
But as I was looking at my phone I noticed many of my apps are travel related – no real surprise.
I am surprised at the fact many of my friends don’t use the hotel apps and others offered.
I showed a few co-workers at the end of the school year how to book a hotel on their phone using the points they had earned and it was like the coolest thing ever to them.
But it wasn’t those ones above it was the Marriott, Best Western and Starwood apps.
Great apps and very user friendly.
Then I also realized there are other apps to see your points balance like Aeroplan and Amex.
Point is – it doesn’t have to be a chore or frustrating to know how many points you have in a certain program at a certain point in time – just check your app!!!
Last thing I’ll say is yes you can get free points from the above mentioned hotel chains – here is my page explaining it.
