Point expiration policies for the major hotel brands. – Earning your hotel points is hard enough, the last thing you want is for them to expire before you can use them. Since most of us haven’t been traveling much the last 18 months, it pays to keep these expiration policies in mind. In many cases, having elite status or the hotel’s credit card keeps your account active so your points don’t expire.

After a shortened 2020 season and skipping last year, I’m really looking forward to hitting the slopes in 2022. And we have our IKON passes ready to go after transferring last year’s money to pay for this year.
