Redeem Away! is a travel industry-first benefit lets members easily redeem their La Quinta Returns points for a variety of everyday purchases like groceries, restaurant meals – even a cup of coffee.

Using Redeem Away! is easy:

First, the member links an eligible Visa credit card and mobile phone number to the member’s La Quinta Returns account.

After the member makes a qualifying in-store or online purchase with the linked Visa credit card, a text notification is immediately sent to the member’s mobile phone, inviting the member to redeem points for that purchase.

By responding “yes,” points are deducted from the member’s La Quinta Returns account and a credit for the purchase amount is received on the linked Visa credit card statement in approximately 10 days.

La Quinta Returns points can be redeemed for qualifying purchases at more than 1 million U.S. retail and online locations in the following categories:

• Fast food and casual dining restaurants
• Bookstores
• Grocery stores and drugstores
• Club and discount stores

Redeem Away! is part of La Quinta’s ongoing initiative to drive engagement with the brand by investing in points of differentiation in its loyalty program, La Quinta Returns.

La Quinta Returns, a top “5 Best Hotel Rewards Program” as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, launched the first phase of its program benefits earlier this year by significantly enhancing the aspirational travel component of the program.

La Quinta Returns members can now redeem their points for stays at more than 20,000 luxury hotels and resorts throughout the world. In the months to come, even more new benefits will be introduced to the program, which will give members additional ways to earn and redeem their La Quinta Returns points, as well as qualify for status upgrades.

La Quinta’s Redeem Away! program uses Visa’s Rewards Redemption platform to deliver on this expectation by giving La Quinta Returns members the ability to easily redeem their points for qualifying purchases, online and in-store – with a linked Visa credit card and a mobile phone.
