Good afternoon everyone. I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers ending soon. 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 4 offers that end in the next 10 days. Up first, Southwest Airlines is offering a 40% discount, when you purchase at least 5,000 Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Points. This offer expires tomorrow – August 14.
Good morning everyone. Last Saturday, Laura and I did a mini San Francisco honeymoon. We stayed at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins a few months ago, so we wanted to check out the Kimpton Sir Francis Drake hotel near San Francisco’s Union Square. As part of IHG’s current Accelerate Promo, I needed to book a Points and Cash reservation to complete part of the promo. The Kimpton Sir Francis Drake is normally 55,000 IHG Points, but I did a booking for 50,000 IHG Points + $28 cash. Here is what the hotel lobby looked like when we arrived (with a few more guests and people working):
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! A few years ago, British Airways was offer 150x Avios at Match.com. After fighting with British Airways and Match.com for a few months to get my 82,286 British Airways Avios, I ended up getting a full refund from Match.com (I would have much preferred the British Airways Avios over the full refund). Thankfully, I met a wonderful girl on Match.com named Laura…
Updated 8:30am PT on 8/12/19: I did another transfer, so I added the second data points to the bottom of this post.
Good afternoon everyone. 2 days ago, I read Frequent Miler’s post Forget email, book Turkish awards over the phone (7.5K each way) and decided to create a Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles account (the Turkish Airlines frequent flyer program). I wanted to test the transfer time and make sure everything was working properly, so I transferred 1,000 Citi Thank You Points to my new Turkish Airlines account on 7/30/19 at 1:46pm. How long would it take for the miles to post to my Turkish Airlines account?
Good afternoon everyone. A few days ago, I wrote Unboxing American Express Delta Platinum SkyMiles Credit Card: Card Art, Welcome Documents & Benefits. In that post, I mentioned that the sign up bonus for the American Express Delta Platinum Credit Card was 70,000 Delta SkyMiles and 10,000 Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) after spending $3,000 in 3 months. I am happy to report that the sign up bonus posts really fast after you complete the minimum spending requirement. After logging into my American Express online account, I found out that the 70,000 Delta SkyMiles posted to my Delta account (I had less than 5,000 Delta SkyMiles a week ago, now I have 74,564 Delta SkyMiles).
