    Like most businesses, hotels love loyal customers and are willing to offer them perks, said Woroch.

    "For instance, Best Western Rewards members can save 10 percent or more, and earn points for free nights," she said.

    Loyalty rewards can apply to third-party sites, as well. "At the coupon codes pages on Coupons.com, we found that Hotels.com will give you one night free when you stay 10 nights through their loyalty program," said Pavini.
