4 Buy Miles / Points Promos Ending Soon: Air France / KLM (70%), United (50%), Air Canada (75%) & Choice Hotels (30%)

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 4 offers that end this week.  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 the 4 offers that end soon.

Up first, Air France / KLM is offering up to a 70% bonus, depending on the number of Air France / KLM Flying Blue Miles you purchase. This offer expires on June 16.

Calling All Readers, Help Me Reach 500 Email Newsletter Subscribers!

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  I am trying to reach 500 email newsletter subscribers and I need your help.  I am currently at 476 subscriber and have added 10 new subscribers in the last 1.5 months.  My newsletter goes out everyday at 4pm PT, but only on days when I have a new blog post (usually 2-3 times per week).  For comparison, I have 4,790 followers on Twitter, 659 followers on Facebook, and 228 followers on Instagram (and I have never posted anything on Instagram).

I really appreciate my long time newsletter subscribers and I hope that I can add a few more subscribers to the team.

Preferred Hotels & Resorts Devaluation: Top Rate Hits 87K Choice Hotels Points / Night (Previously 55K)

Good afternoon everyone, I have some bad news if you are / were a fan of Preferred Hotels & Resorts properties.  It appears that the top rate has increased from 55K Choice Hotels Points / night up to 87K (a 58% increase).  My friend alerted me to this devaluation and I was able to verify it by going to the Preferred Hotels & Resorts search page (after signing into my Choice Hotels account), and then sorting prices from high to low.  As you can see, the new top rate is now 87K points / night.

Discounted Cirque du Soleil Tickets in Las Vegas, InKind & Resy Credits, and Redeeming 60K Caesars Rewards Points Toward Paid Hotel Stay

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  Yesterday, I wrote about My Las Vegas Casino Status Matches: Caesars Diamond > Wynn Platinum > Fontainebleau Gold > MGM Gold > Unity by Hard Rock Icon.  In today’s post, I will cover riding the Las Vegas Monorail, getting 20% off Cirque du Soleil tickets, using InKind and Resy credits for the same restaurant, and redeeming 60,000 Caesars Rewards Points toward my paid hotel stay at the Paris Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Monorail (save more with multi trip passes)

After walking from the Paris Las Vegas up to the Fontainebleau, we didn’t want to walk all the way back, so we decided to take the Las Vegas Monorail back to our hotel.  Since we had dinner reservations back at Don’s Prime (inside the Fontainebleau) in a few hours, we decided to get a 1 Day Pass (unlimited rides within 24 hours) for $15 / ticket.  It was about a 13-15 minute walk from the Fontainebleau to the Westgate Monorail Station, then only a 10-12 minute ride back to the Paris Las Vegas.  If you have a prepaid commuter debit card, you can use it on the Las Vegas Monorail.
