Earn up to $120 in Uber Credit with Citi Double Cash Credit Card

Updated 9am PT on 10/15: Promo details now show up in the Payment Rewards section.

Good morning everyone, happy Friday.  I just got this email from Citi, so it might be targeted, but if you have a Citi Double Cash Credit Card, you can earn up to $120 in Uber credit when you pay with that credit card for UberPool rides.  You need to add the promo code to your Uber account (which I will show you below) and then pay for your next UberPool ride with your Citi Double Cash Credit Card.  After that ride, you will earn $15 in Uber credit which you can apply to your next UberPool ride (or maybe to Uber or UberEats, I’m not sure).  You can do that up to 8 times to earn $120 in Uber credit.  Sounds pretty good to me, since most good Uber promos are just for first time customers.

Find the Perfect Routing for your Next Award Flight

Do you have all the time in the world to keep track of all the airlines, the alliances, which airlines are adding flights and routes, and which routes are being canceled? I certainly don’t. I was reminded of this a few weeks ago when United announced its new non-stops to Europe for Summer 2018. Sure, these are seasonal routes, but still, for those of us who work hard accumulating miles and points, this is exactly the kind of knowledge we need to book those award tickets, and book them early. Knowing when award charts open, and seasonal route award seats are bookable, is just not something I’m good about keeping track of. In addition to United’s new Summer routes, United also started daily service between LAX and Singapore and between New York and Buenos Aires. See what I mean? That’s a lot of news to follow. And that’s just United.

Amazon eGift Card Winners for Columbus Day Weekend Giveaway

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a great Columbus Day Weekend.  I wanted to thank everyone who participated in my giveaway and left a comment sharing their Columbus Day Weekend plans.  I wish I could pick everyone, but I could only pick 3 winners.  Here are the 3 winners who will each receive a $10 Amazon eGift Card.

Chris D Great timing. We are planning to possibly go to San Francisco/Monterey in Feb 2018. Would love to hear trip report of the Hyatt and aquarium in future. I was looking at Hyatt Monterey vs Carmel property. Our plans for Columbus day is to go to Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT with our 9 year old twins. We are big aquarium fans! Curious how Mystic will compare to your Monterey aquarium visit. Lots to do in the Mystic area with the old seaport and lots of shops and dining options. Thanks for sponsoring contest.
psychocycle i am staying near great smoky mountains national park. each day of the extended weekend i am out for a “century” on my bike. each 100 mile ride will criss-cross and cross-criss the appalachian trail several times. the climbs will be heinous, but what goes up must go down, and i’ll be glad to let gravity do the work! all this being said, it looks like hurricane/tropical storm nate will soak me, but better to be soaked with rain than soaked with sweat! ha thanks for your site. and thanks for the chance to win!
Nitra Going to Vancouver. My bday was Oct 1 so this is my “birthday trip.” Used 20k Avios to book DFW-YVR on AA round trip and using my 2 free nights from the Fairmont card for the Fairmont Pacific Rim. A friend is using UR points for another hotel for our 3rd night. Our Columbus Day Monday is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Enjoy Monterey!

Thanks you for participating and good luck on the next giveaway :)
