[Expired] Free one year luxury hotel benefits membership

18

Leading Hotels of the World, an association of luxury-oriented hotels, is offering a free one year membership in their Leaders Club in conjunction with Diners Club International.  The membership, which typically costs $150, includes benefits such as complimentary continental breakfast, a free night after every 5 stays, and Sixt Platinum Status.  You can register here or by clicking the image below:

As you can see, the benefits are decent:

The email verification seems to only check whether your email address has been associated with a Leaders Club account in the past.  The terms and conditions indicate that the offer may have been targeted, but do not mention any requirement to be a Diners Club account holder.  I have never had a Diners Club account and I was able to successfully register.

Just got this message. Hopefully the Sixt Platinum status will stay in tact.

Registered for this without incident or problem. Just the afternoon I received an email with the following text:

Curious why I didn’t get this email?

You didn’t get the Instant email? I don’t know why not

I’d love to get added to that list if possible. I thought I was already on it.

Thank you

The offer appears to be dead.

Oh man, too rich for my blood. Free breakfast is nice but for $500 a night I can stay in a nice SPG property and still have $300 left over which would buy me one HECK of a breakfast at McDonalds. 🙂

Thanks for the heads up Nick. Welcome to the Frequent Miler family.

Do you know how to get the Sixt platinum status with this? Can’t find anywhere mentioned after logged in.

Matt K

Thanks! Didn’t catch that before. Easy enough to click through and get platinum right away.

One thing that stinks about Leader’s Club, according to their T&Cs:

“Only stays booked on public rates by Leaders Club members or their travel advisors are eligible for Leaders Club benefits. These stays must also be booked through an LHW channel (LHW.com or via voice reservation) and the member’s Leaders Club number must be referenced to be eligible for Leaders Club benefits.”

It wouldn’t hurt to try, but I think this nullifies the opportunity to stack Leaders Club benefits with Citi Prestige 4th night free, booking with bank points, or other online travel agencies.

When you book with Citi Prestige, they’ll book through the channel you specify. So, you should be able to get them to book through the correct website in order to get both benefits.
