Here’s a quick mini-post on several happenings in the miles and points world. I promise it is short enough that it won’t interfere with Thursday Night Football! The 70,000 miles Delta Amex Gold personal card offer appears to be back…for now. Doubt it will hang around for too long. Check out this post by MileValue to learn more. Just a few hours are left to enter to win the $100… Read the Rest.
Like most hotel chains, Best Western has a fall promotion out where you can earn bonus points for hotel stays. To celebrate, they have provided a $100 Best Western Travel Card for one Mommy Points reader. More on how to win that gift card in a moment, but first I want to point out some of the highlights of their fall promotion and rewards program. Between September 23rd and November… Read the Rest.
I just received an email that Best Western and TopGuest will be “breaking up” as of June 30th. I posted a few days ago that United and TopGuest no longer have an active relationship, and it seems that some other partners are on their way out as well. With the most recent info that Best Western was no longer going to be a partner, I just have to wonder what… Read the Rest.
A couple months ago I did a post that talked about several of the summer hotel promotions, but now that we are actually into summer, I wanted to revisit a few of the current promos, include a big reminder, and share a hotel promo rumor! I first wanted to remind everyone to start narrowing down their Starwood Preferred Guest “Nice Choice” selection, in case you haven’t already done so. The… Read the Rest.
My parents (Little C’s grandparents) are about to embark on a two week road trip adventure through Yosemite, Sequoia National Forest, the Pacific Coast, and Las Vegas. It was another one of their “Bucket List” trips. Planning for this trip started at least a year ago, and I posted some about booking their flights on points here. Now that we are closer to their departure date, I asked my dad… Read the Rest.
We are now in the home stretch for the Daily Getaway Deals. It is the last week of the five week Daily Getaways Deals promotion. This week the hot ticket item will likely be the Hyatt points for sale on Wednesday (mark your calendars if you want a chance at that one), but Monday’s Best Western deal has some hidden value if you are a US Airways Grand Slam addict… Read the Rest.
Now that the major players in the hotel chain world have officially announced their summer promotions, it is time to see how they stack up. If you are like me and often have the freedom to choose which hotel chain to use on any given trip, then maximizing promotions is just part of the game. Clearly some promotions will be better than others depending on individual travel patterns, needs, wants,… Read the Rest.
As has already been posted on View From the Wing and One Mile at a Time, US Airways is running a special until 3/31 while you can get a 50% bonus on all hotel points transferred into the Dividend Miles program. It should come as no surprise that this US Airways Grand Slam junkie really loves US Airways miles. Especially for their 60,000 mile round-trip off-peak ticket to Europe in… Read the Rest.
After being away from work for most of last week for the OneWorld MegaDO, today I continued my plummet back to reality with the realization that I had several new work trips to book. These are trips that are 100% devoid of any fun, and are to cities that are 100% devoid of any Hyatt or Starwood hotels. Doesn’t my day job understand that if they are going to send… Read the Rest.
