This global hotel booking website entices you with airline mileage points in exchange for your business. There are more than 100,000 hotels to choose from.

What's hot: Free points just for the taking. There are three levels of free membership, and as your number of hotel-night stays grows, you move up to the next level, allowing you to earn even more airline miles per dollar spent. (Note: I once found a better per-night rate by using the hotel website.)

What's not: When I tested the site, there were only five loyalty programs: Delta SkyMiles, United Mileage Plus Reward Miles, Hawaiian Airlines, Club Premier Aeromexico and Baltic Miles. For American Airlines miles, you might try RocketMiles.com, a similar site.
