The Fine Print
- Stash Points are only valid for free nights at participating hotels. They cannot be redeemed for additional expenses, such as dining or spa treatments.
- If you cancel a reward reservation, you may be subject to cancellation or penalty fees depending on the policy of the partner hotel. Unless the hotel imposes a cancellation fee, all Stash Points used for the booking will automatically be refunded and returned to your account.
- If a hotel ceases to be a participant in the Stash Hotel Rewards program (after you made your reservation), you may still be able to receive points for your stay if you send a copy of your confirmation email to the program's member support team.
- Your accrued Stash points will never expire.
