Dancing With the Stars Derek Hough Partners with Hilton to Promote Rewards

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

A new promo campaign from Hilton Hotels & Resorts features Dancing With the Stars champ Derek Hough.

Hough talks about using visualization to achieve his goals, and says folks can use the same technique to go after those big travel plans and dream vacations, using Hilton reward points to make their vacations that much more special. Hilton is promoting their “vision board” on social media, asking people to visualize their travel dreams.

The campaign also promotes a new credit card from JetBlue, which gives rewards for purchases made with the card and lets customers earn free flights with the popular discount airline.

Co-branded credit cards key to great travel rewards

Using a co-branded airline card like the JetBlue card is a good way for people to get travel rewards using one specific airline. Travel credit cards that are not linked with a particular airline or hotel chain are good for folks who don’t have a preference for which airline they fly or where they stay, but for those who know they will be using one airline, or who have a favorite hotel brand, getting the co-branded credit card really pays off.

Perks of these cards include things like priority boarding, increased points-earning capacity, discounts on in-flight purchases, room upgrades for hotel cards, and the ability to transfer miles or points between partner airlines in an alliance.

Signup bonuses for travel cards can be big

Travel credit cards tend to offer the best signup bonuses; they often will give enough points for a round-trip flight or a free night at a hotel, just for making a purchase, or spending a certain amount within the first few months of having the card.

Hilton and JetBlue are just two of the brands that offer co-branded credit cards for loyal customers. The United MileagePlus card, Delta’s American Express Card, American Airlines AAdvantage card, and even Southwest Airlines all have their own credit cards that offer customers discounts, benefits, and points-earning capability.

Traveling can be more rewarding with a credit card

These days, if you’re doing a lot of traveling and you don’t have a rewards credit card, you’re missing out on some great opportunities. Anyone who flies anywhere, stays in hotels, or even takes train and bus trips or rents a car can get more from their money when they pay with a travel rewards credit card. There are many different cards available, to suit travelers of all stripes.
