Anyone remember those?  I still have two lamps from those hallowed little sticky things in a box somewhere in a box--perhaps one day on e-bay or better yet, on Antiques Roadshow--I might sell them.

 

This article uses the S&H Metaphor to illustrate several key points about all loyalty programs we all favor.  Worth a quick glance.

    Marriott usually structures their point promotions by offering xx bonus points for staying yy nights during the promotion period (usually three months), but there is "partial credit" if you are only able to stay fewer nights.  Marriott used to require you to pay for your nights using VISA, but not lately.

     

    Maybe closer to the green stamp model, but I like it. 

     

    "Here's all you have to do to begin earning your 30,000 bonus points plus a Hertz car rental discount:

    • Stay at any of the more than 3,200 participating Marriott® hotels between June 1 and August 31, 2010.
    • Earn 20,000 bonus points after 15 paid nights and an additional 10,000 bonus points after 20 paid nights - for a total of up to 30,000 bonus points + up to $50 off a Hertz car rental."

    What a great throwback to yesteryear! As one of 8 kiddos living in a one bedroom house and an attic barracks (with no heat!) in MA, I can remember my mother at the store with sheets and sheets of green stamps she would get and wondering what it was all about....and what all the interest was about getting them. But, here I am today doing pretty much the same thing except I'm traveling with my rewards instead of burning toast!! Thanks for the memory!
