Check-ins Mean Points for Members of Airline and Hotel Loyalty Programs

Check-ins Mean Points for Members of Airline and Hotel Loyalty Programs | Travelled | Scoop.it

Last week, travel industry loyalty program software provider ezRez Software acquired San Francisco-based startup Topquest. That would be of little interest, except that the acquisition means the use of social media now translates into points on travel rewards programs from airlines and hotel chains.

“Topguest enables members of leading travel loyalty programs…to earn reward points for geo-located check-ins via their mobile devices. Powering direct links to Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram and Twitter, Topguest helps travelers build their reward balances and receive exclusive offers and bonuses for simply using some of these popular social services,”

Virgin America awards 25 Elevate points for sharing a location or a photo at a Virgin America airport terminal, baggage claim, or other venue. Hilton’s HHonors program gives an allotment of 50 points to hotel guests who share their location or a photo at Hampton® or DoubleTree by Hilton™ hotels.
