5 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: United (100%), JetBlue (60%), Hilton (100%), Air Canada (80%) & American (60%)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that end this month.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are 5 offers that end soon.  Up first, United Airlines is offering up to a 100% bonus, depending on the number of United Airlines MileagePlus Miles you purchase.  This offer expires today – July 23.

New USPS Informed Delivery Feature: Electronic Signature Online (eSOL) & Set Up Guide

Good afternoon everyone.  A few years ago, the USPS introduced Informed Delivery, a service that will scan the outside of your envelopes and send you an email every day with a preview of what mail will get delivered that day.  If you are not familiar with the service, please read USPS Informed Delivery – A Step By Step Guide.  In yesterday’s Informed Delivery email, I saw a new service called USPS Electronic Signature Online (eSOL).  With eSOL, you can provide a digital signature that will be used to virtually sign for all packages that normally require a signature (Priority Mail Express packages, packages that require a Signature Confirmation, and packages insured for $500 or more).  Once your digital signature is provided, it will be used to virtually sign for packages, and those packages will be left at your mailbox.  To learn more about the service and set up your eSOL, click here.

Transfer Times from Citi ThankYou Points to American Airlines: Miles Posted 12-13 Hours Later

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  Yesterday morning, Frequent Miler wrote You Can Now Transfer Citi ThankYou Points To American Airlines, But Only For A Limited Time.  I decided to do a sample transfer of 1,000 Citi ThankYou Points (TYPs) to American Airlines to test the transfer times and see if the transfer was instant.  I submitted the transfer request at 9:19am and checked my American Airlines account a few minutes later.  Unfortunately, the transfer was not instant, so I set up an AwardWallet “Balance Watch” alert to see when the miles posted, so I could calculate the transfer time.  From my experience, the transfer took 12-13 hours to post.
