All AutoCamp properties are bookable now

Hilton just announced that they’re partnering with AutoCamp ( ummmm who? ) with the ability to earn and burn points at AutoCamp sites starting with their property in Cape Cod. Not only have I never stayed at a camp site, I had no idea what AutoCamp was before this partnership… so in a way, the marketing partnership is already working on me because these they look pretty cool.

Will I ever use this partnership? I’m not a huge camping guy ( obviously since I’ve never camped ) so I’m not sure, but I’ve always had a weird romanticized idea that I’d want to roadtrip in an AirStream. Now that I could use points to go stay in a glampsite featuring Airstreams, I’m intrigued to say the least. Regardless of whether I pullt the trigger, the more ways to use points is always a good thing. Let’s take a look at the partnership which is live and bookable on Hilton channels

What is AutoCamp

It looks like, from what I can ascertain, is it focuses on the segment of traveler that love the outdoors, but don’t necessarily want to completely rough it, so they provide campsites with a large, communal clubhouses, where you can individually rent out cabins, tents, and luxury AirStreams that surround it.

This is a screenshot of the spot in Zion – clearly it looks as though it’s an an incredible location.

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex℠and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners
