Today is the 8th Day of Christmas in InsideFlyer’s 12 Days of Christmas contests, and today’s prize is a little like getting surprised with instant loyalty program status.

10 winners will receive an instant bump to Level 3 tier with PointsHound, which typically is the level you get to once you’ve had 20+ nights of hotel stays., for those who are not familiar, gives you the opportunity to earn miles (and Bitcoin if you’re into that) when booking your hotel through them. They are an online hotel booking site where you can earn up to 6,000 airline miles per night for your booking.

Just like any hotel booking site, the prices you’ll find on PointsHound are sometimes cheaper and sometimes more expensive than on other sites. Even though stays do not count towards elite status re-qualification with a hotel loyalty program and you your status level may not be recognized, Pointshound has their own rewards program to prompt you to book with them multiple times. Here’s their chart on the miles earning depending on number of bookings through their site –
