10 Award Wallet Plus 1 Year Upgrade Codes Giveaway: What Feature is Missing?

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I am writing this post at the Peet’s Coffee inside the SF Ferry Building before I head to the office.  Long story short, I was inspired by Frequent Miler’s post from yesterday (Should you lock in AwardWallet Plus for $10 per year?) that I decided to purchase 10 Award Wallet Plus 1 year upgrade codes and give them away to my readers.  I have been a huge fan of Award Wallet for a very long time and have been a partner with them for a few years (they even reached out to me to become a partner when I was first starting out).  If you are not an Award Wallet user, please read my introduction post: What is Award Wallet? and sign up for your free account.

To participate in the giveaway, please leave a comment below stating which feature you think Award Wallet is missing.  Essentially, what would make Award Wallet even better than it is now? My hope is that my readers will come up with some great ideas and maybe Award Wallet will implement those new features in the future.  To be eligible for the giveaway, your comment must be submitted by 11:59pm PT tonight (1/26/2017).  I will pick my favorite responses tomorrow morning (1/27/2017) and email the 1 year Award Wallet Plus upgrade codes to the 10 winners.  Good luck to everyone who participates!

A Quick Thank You and a Few Free Southwest Movie Vouchers and Award Wallet Plus Codes

Thank You

A Quick Thank You and a Few Free Southwest Movie Vouchers and Award Wallet Plus Codes

I know I don’t say this enough, but I just wanted to say thank you for all the readers who come to Travel with Grant daily.  Some of you come from Google (more like half of you), some come from other travel blogs, and some come back daily to see what crazy things I’m up to.  Where ever you come from, I want to thank you for visiting and engaging with me and the other readers in the comments.

I would also like to thank those of you who use my Amazon Affiliate Link *its right there >>*.  I have almost earned enough for a first class airline ticket booklet of stamps.  All those small purchases add up and I am very thankful that you used my link.

Anyway, let’s get to the free stuff, shall we?  I got 2 free movie passes for Southwest Airlines for being a Southwest Airlines credit card holder.  I got them right around Valentine’s Day and have no plans to use them.

Virgin Atlantic Transfers to Hilton HHonors Ratio Changing from 1:2 to 2:3, use AMEX Membership Reward Points to Liquidate Balance

UPDATE 3/1/14 @ 5:30PM PST: my transfer from Virgin Atlantic to Hilton HHonors took 22 days to complete (see photo below).

Virgin Atlantic Transfers to Hilton HHonors Ratio Changing from 1:2 to 2:3, use AMEX Membership Reward Points to Liquidate Balance

(Hat Tip to Mommy Points for breaking the story)

Good morning from Rome! That title is a mouthful, I know, but here is the breaking news of the morning:

  • Please note from 6 February 2014 the exchange miles to points rate is changing. Flying Club members will be able to exchange miles at the following rate: 2 Flying Club miles for 3 Hilton HHonors points.
  • You can currently exchange miles at a rate of (up until 5 February 2014): 1 Flying Club mile for 2 HHonors point.
  • Minimum Level: 10,000 miles and then in increments of 5,000. Just call the Flying Club Helpline (1-800-365-9500) with your HHonors account number.

Now that the cat (news) is out of the bag, it pays to be proactive. I have a small balance of Virgin Atlantic miles (only 11,260).  I want to get my balance up to 15,000 so I can transfer them out to my Hilton HHonors account.

Virgin Atlantic Balances

Here is my Virgin Atlantic account.  Copy your account number and head over to your American Express Membership Rewards Account.  I’m skipping a lot of steps below, but you can see the entire step-by-step guide here.  The guide shows you how to transfer to British Airways, but the process is exactly the same.   Continue reading
