Wedding season is here! Love is in the air, champagne is flowing, and people everywhere are brushing up on the finer points of the Electric Slide. If you’ve been tapped to be a bridesmaid or groomsmen, you’re busy getting ready for your important duties. Indeed, a spot on the wedding party roster is a privilege, an honor, a huge expense. One reward comes in the form of celebrating your special friend’s special day. Another reward, if you follow our plan, comes in the form of earning free nights at sweet independent hotels.
Apply for the Stash Hotel Visa Card. It’s an awesome little accessory that lets you earn Stash Points with every purchase you make.

How? Easy. Your best friend from college is getting married this summer in New Orleans, and you’re in the wedding. (We’re jealous because weddings are the best and New Orleans is pretty great, too.) Here’s your budget and the points you would earn if you put it all on your pretty new Stash Visa Card.
Flight: $400 (+400 Stash points)
Two nights at a Stash partner hotel: $500 (+1,500 points from using your Stash Visa Card, +2,500 points for being a Stash member)
Two nights at a non-Stash hotel (the rest of the wedding party is staying at the local chain –sigh– duty calls): $400 (+800 points)
Attire (pink taffeta dress with a jumbo bow, vibrant orange Lloyd Christmas tux): $300 (+300 Stash points)
Le Creuset dutch oven for the newly weds: $200 (+200 Stash points)
Po’ Boys and sazeracs: $150 (+300 Stash points)
Charges made: $2,000
Total Stash Points earned from spend: 6,000
Bonus points: 10,000
The math: 6,000 + 10,000 = 16,000 Stash Points. (Basically, that’s 16,000 points for having an awesome time at your friend’s wedding in New Orleans.)
Take a vacation to recover from wedding season. Your wallet can take a rest too, you’ve earned enough points for a free night at many Stash Partner Hotels.
