Tampa, Florida - Howard Johnson Busch Gardens

This hotel is located right off of I-275, just minutes north of Tampa's Busch Gardens Africa amusement park. There's an outdoor pool, free parking, free breakfast, but unfortunately, no free shuttle to the park.

South Plainfield, New Jersey - Ramada Limited

This BRG opportunity is located in the heart of the Jersey suburbs, around 30 miles southwest of Manhattan. It's easily accessible from Interstate 287, for those travelling by car (which I hope you are, unless you're up for a long, boring ride on public transit). It's not very practical for anyone to use this as a base for exploring New York City, but if you are travelling to and fro, it's worth considering it. This one is easily visible by searching Kayak.

Syracuse, NY - Days Inn Syracuse University

Here's another New York State BRG opportunity, located in the upstate city of Syracuse. This would be a good pick for those travelling along I-90, as its smack dab in the middle of the state. Easily visible by searching Kayak. Quality-wise, this seems like your standard, average Joe Days Inn property, nothing much stands out here.

Since both the refundable and nonrefundable rates are higher than the rates on Expedia/Hotels.com, your claim will be approved without problem.

"Days Inn Syracuse East is centrally located to many of the attractions Syracuse has to offer. We provide clean comfortable rooms at an affordable price. Our staff is friendly and courteous. Every room has color cable television with ESPN and HBO. Complimentary coffee and doughnuts are served in the lobby daily from 6 to 10 am. We have easy access to all major highways. We are within 10 miles to two major shopping centers and within 6 miles of downtown Syracuse. Group rates are available. Ample free parking and truck/bus parking is also available." - DaysInn.com

Albany, New York - Knights Inn Albany Airport

Here's an airport BRG for those using Albany airport in the near future.

What the hotel does offer is a complimentary continental breakfast, free wifi, and a seasonal outdoor pool.

The hotel is listed as the "Country Hearth Inn" on both Orbitz and Cheaptickets, but it's a Knights Inn property (according to the Wyndham website). The addresses match up 100%, so don't worry - your claims will be approved.

Priority Club PointBreaks list has been updated! Includes the Crowne Plaza Paris Champs Elysees

For those of you who haven't yet heard of Priority Club, it's the rewards program of the IC Hotels Group, which includes brands such as the Intercontinental, the Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, Hotel Indigo, and Crowne Plaza. Many of these properties can exceed the $200/night mark, and most always you'll find them over $100 at the very least.

Luckily, Priority Club offers "PointBreaks" - a list of hotels updated every 2-3 months that are available for a mere 5,000 points (which can be purchased for as low as $11.50 - $13.50 per 1,000 points, depending on the size of your order, or earned through stays). This can provide some steep discounts when compared to the actual booking rates through its website or through sites like Expedia.

Canadians are especially in luck - a mere 750 AirMiles Reward Miles (which literally every Canadian has) nets you 10,000 Priority Club points - enough for 2 free nights! This is by far the BEST way to redeem your AirMiles, Canucks.

Here's the best (in my humble opinion) of the offerings this time around. This is just a small slice - others may be of interest to you. Check out the entire list, here.

Note that the Crowne Plaza Champs Elysees (next to the Arc de Triomphe!) can be had as low as $57.50 through this promotion. This hotel retails for $277 Euros (around $350 per night) on their website - so it's quite a savings! That is, if there is availability for when you will travel - these won't last long.

"Learn to Churn": Increase Your Credit Card Sign Up Bonuses (Featured Article by Rick Ingersoll, The Frugal Travel Guy)

When I told the guys from the Best Rate Guarantee Blog about the latest project I have been working on at the Frugal Travel Guy blog, they quickly agreed to allow me to share it with you.

I wrote a series of articles the week of August 10th to 17th on increasing your credit card sign up bonuses and other credit card related issues.

I have been churning credit cards for the last 8 years, and prior to that have 16 years experience in the credit industry. This November's issue of InsideFlyer will feature a story about credit card churning and I was asked to contribute to the article.

Since writing the credit card articles, I have been helping my readers to better understand the possibilities of credit card churning, while still protecting their credit. My current estimate is that my readers have received credit card approvals for over 4 million frequent flyer miles and hotel points in the last two months.

The initial rush of questions has subsided and I now have the time to help readers of the Best Rate Guarantee Blog as well. You will not be asked any personally identifying information, such as your full name or social security number. If interested, you will be asked to acknowledge that your credit is one of your most important assets and a little bit about your credit history.

Although credit card churning is not my only source of miles, credit cards are the second largest source of frequent flyer and hotel point earnings for the airline and hotel industry. We have been so successful with this strategy and others, Katy (my wife) and I will be taking an Around the World trip this coming April, May and part of June flying in Business Class on frequent flyer miles, and all 61 nights of hotel rooms are free with hotel points, largely due to the many miles and points we have amassed through such credit card offers.

If you would like to learn more about the credit card churning and how you may increase your frequent flyer or hotel points balances, email me at ingy104@gmail.com or start by reading this blog article from the Frugal Travel Guy blog and the other related articles posted that week.

And don't forget to let me know you that you saw this post on the BRG Blog.



Update on the Ramada Queens horror story...

A little while ago we told you about a reader's experiences with the Ramada Queens cancelling his stay and refusing to honor his BRG claim. He was uncertain as to what would be done to rectify the situation, but we now have news.

The aforementioned guest, Ben, contacted us this morning and verified that Wyndham will be refunding the full amount of his stay to him via cheque. So, there is a silver lining to every cloud.

Anyone who has or had a BRG with this property, be aware that you will be receiving a free night stay, but you will have to be reimbursed by Wyndham itself becuase of this chain breaking their franchise agreement. Rest easy knowing that they're going through hell on Earth with corporate right now for breaking the terms of being a Ramada property. They just learned (the hard way) that they can't weasel out of the BRG.

Thanks to Ben for keeping up informed.

Have a story? Feel free to send them to us via email.
