Hotel Buy Points Promos Ending Soon: Choice, Hyatt, Radisson, IHG, La Quinta & Hilton

Good morning everyone.  Since Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner, several hotels are running buy points promos now.  I wrote about 7 airline buy miles / points promos yesterday and I have all the latest offers on my Buy Miles & Points Page.  Always check the math to make sure that buying points makes sense for you.  Do not buy points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are the 6 promos that are ending soon. First up, Choice Hotels is offering a 25% discount when you purchase Choice Privileges points.  This offer expires on November 26.

Pathetic US Bank Radisson Rewards Targeted Spending Offer

Good afternoon everyone.  I just wanted to share a pathetic US Bank Radisson Rewards targeted spending offer I received yesterday.  I have 3 US Bank Radisson Rewards credit cards (Business, Visa Signature, and Visa Platinum) and received the same pathetic spending offer on all 3 credit cards.  After spending $50 on the credit card, I will earn 1 bonus point per dollar, up to 5,000 bonus points.  The Business and Visa Signature versions earn 5x everywhere, so this would be 6x everywhere.  I barely put any spending on my US Bank Radisson Rewards credit cards and this promotion does not entice me to start using these credit cards.  If you use your US Bank Radisson Rewards credit cards more often, you may receive a better targeted spend offer.

US Bank Credit Cards Renewal Notification Explains 60 Day “Renewal Period”

Good morning everyone.  If you have been to Santa Cruz recently, please check out this post: I Need Restaurant / Activity Recommendations for Santa Cruz.  Yesterday, I was reviewing my credit card statements and spotted this Renewal Notification message on my US Bank Radisson Rewards Premier Visa Signature Credit Card.  I keep this credit card and pay the $75 annual fee just for the 40,000 Radisson Rewards anniversary points every year.  In the Renewal Notification section, it says the following (I kept the important stuff and removed everything else):

You have a “renewal period” of 60 days from the date we mailed this notification. During the renewal period, you may terminate your Account and avoid paying the Annual Membership Fee. You may terminate your Account by calling or by writing us at the Cardmember Service telephone or address shown below. During the renewal period and before you terminate your Account, you may continue to use your card without having to pay the fee. If, however, you do not terminate your Account by the end of the renewal period, you will have to pay the fee.

Each year, the Account will be subject to your payment in advance of an Annual Membership Fee of $75.00, which will compensate us for maintaining and servicing the Account for the following year.

Good afternoon everyone.  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers that are ending on September 30.  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 3 promos that are ending soon (and one that ends in early October).  First up, Air France / KLM is offering a 60% bonus when you purchase at least 4,000 Flying Blue Miles.  This offer expires on September 30.

Buy Miles & Points Promos Expiring Soon: United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Radisson Rewards & SPG

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  I recently went through all the links on my buy miles / points page and noticed that a few promos are ending in the next week or two.  I don’t recommend buying miles and points unless you have an award ticket or award night stay in mind, but if you do need some extra miles / points, it’s better to buy them when they are at a discount or offering a bonus.  Without further ado, here are the 4 promos ending in the next few days.

United Airlines: Get up to 85% Bonus on Miles (Expires July 11, 2018)

United Airlines seems to run buy miles promos often.  A 100% bonus was the highest I’ve seen recently, so an 85% bonus is almost as good.  This is a tiered bonus, so your price per mile (PPM) will depend on how many miles you purchase.
