First, thank you to the over 1,100 entries in my Club Carlson contest from both the comments section of the linked post and Twitter. Great response for a great giveaway. As a refresher, this giveaway was sponsored by Club Carlson, and there are two winners who each receive a $500 Club Carlson gift card as well as Gold elite status with Club Carlson. If the winners already have Gold status… Read the Rest.
Update: The contest has ended – winners to be announced soon! I have been a big fan of the Club Carlson Visa ever since it came out last year. In fact the Club Carlson loyalty program itself has been a rising star in the miles and points world since it ran the “stay one get one” promo last year where you received 50,000 points after just a one night stay….

Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter to win the Alamo prize pack that includes goodies such as $100 in Amex gift cards, a Kindle, a portable DVD player, and more. The giveaway was in honor of Alamo re-launching their website with the new “Deal Retriever” that they say “searches all valid Alamo deals and coupons on the web to find the best rates to meet customers’ needs”….

Recently, my friends at Alamo reached out to me again to see if I was interested in giving away a prize pack while at the same time mentioning their new “Alamo Deal Retriever” system that they say will make finding the best deal for an Alamo rental a very efficient process. Alamo says that: “The Alamo Deal Retriever” searches all valid Alamo deals and coupons on the web to find… Read the Rest.
As a (hopefully) fun way to review the year that is now behind us, I continued the tradition of having a little “Best of and Worst of Year in Review” contest. To make things a little more interesting, I offered up some Starbucks gift cards to those with the “Best of” or “Worst of” comments. I normally leave winners to fate using random.org, but this time had the Mommy Points… Read the Rest.
A few months back I was asked to help judge a Hyatt contest where people would submit their ideas for trips using Hyatt Gold Passport points and I would help score them on feasibility, creativity and reasoning for the trip. Million Mile Secrets and Jeff Zidell from Hyatt Gold Passport did the same, and our scores were combined to select the winners. To get to the top ten list you… Read the Rest.
On Thanksgiving I launched several giveaways that included 22,000 Hyatt Gold Passport Points, GoGo internet passes, and Star MegaDo 4 swag. There were many entries for these – especially for the 22,000 Hyatt points! The winners were randomly selected and here they are (cue the drumroll………) 22,000 Hyatt Gold Passport Points (enough for a free night in any Hyatt): Entry #543: Aaron who said he would use his points at… Read the Rest.
Thanks so much to a reader who gave me four GoGo internet passes that will expire at the end of the year. They had a pack of passes, and have four left they won’t be able to use before they expire, so I want to help them get in the hands of someone who can use them. I have only ever been on one flight that had on-board internet, so… Read the Rest.
I had a great time on the recent Star MegaDo 4, and it is no secret that on those trips a fair amount of “swag” is given away to participants. I love getting free stuff, but I would rather share most of it with you guys as part of T-Day Giveaway #2! On this particular trip, we were given stuff primarily from Lufthansa, United, and Milepoint. Some of the main… Read the Rest.
The first (and biggest) Thanksgiving Day Giveaway is 22,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points. This is enough for a free night at any Hyatt Hotel around the world. Some examples of top tier Hyatt hotels include places like Park Hyatt Sydney, Park Hyatt Tokyo, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Andaz Fifth Avenue, and Hyatt Regency London – Churchill. Of course, you could also stretch out the points to get several nights in… Read the Rest.
