Those of you looking to cash in reward points for a vacation should start booking now. Experts say big changes are coming that some consumers will not like.
Almost every single hotel chain is doubling the number of points needed for a free night's stay. Some chains, like the Hilton, are starting the changes this month.
Others like the Marriott, are introducing more expensive tiers for the program. For example, a stay in New York would require more points than a visit to Tulsa.
Experts say if you book now for future travel, you can avoid the changes.
