Last Day To Get The 72,000 Point IHG Card Offer

I know that Chase/IHG have decided to stretch out when you can apply for the 70,000 point offer, but this particular version of the offer expires today. If you want to get an extra 2,000 points for applying, today is the day. Original Post - chase ihg 70,000 + 2,000 point application link Extra 2,000 Points The sign-up bonus itself is still the new/normal 70,000 points but these extra 2,000 points are being offered as part of the current “set your sights” IHG promo. To get the bonus, you must apply through the link on this page which specifies the extra 2,000 point bonus. Also, you must have a IHG Rewards number and enter it on the application! Sign-up for an account here. The sign-up bonus requires you to spend $1,000 in 3 months to receive the 70,000 sign-up bonus. It is not too often that you see a bonus offered just for applying for a credit card. Of course, it is not worth a hard pull on your credit just for 2,000... ...

Equipment Change = Newer Seats and 12,500 Miles Back To Me

Later on this year, I am booked on American Airlines from Santiago, Chile to Washington, DC (via Miami). I used 62,500 Alaska Airline miles for the first class ticket. I opted for first class over business class since it was on the older 777-200 plane with the angled business class seats. Since I really need to make sure I sleep well on that segment, I used 12,500 extra miles to get first class over business. First Class or Business Class When I booked the ticket, I was really disappointed that there was not one of the retrofitted business class cabins flying that route. I could have booked through Dallas and received the newer cabin, but I really needed to be in DC early that morning. Fortunately, I happened to notice that there had been a equipment change and it was to AA’s 767-300. This craft does have the retrofitted business class cabin which features lie-flat seats. It looks pretty great so I am looking forward to trying it out (it has the appearance to and... ...

Earn 10X Mileage Plan Miles At Road Runner Sports

I love seeing higher mileage payouts for shopping at running stores. It helps give added incentive to grab gear that you may have been waiting for or find gear that you did not know you were looking for yet. Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan shopping portal has hiked their portal payout for Road Runner Sports to a great 10 miles per dollar! Since Road Runner Sports has a vast inventory and a nice VIP package that will give you additional discounts, this is a great opportunity to buy the active gear you need. Best Point Earning – 10X Mileage Plan Miles This increased payout (up from 4 miles per dollar) is good through March 31 (tomorrow). Not only that, but it comes with a nice 10% discount code that you can use on the site. To begin your shopping, start at the Mileage Plan shopping portal – here. You will need to have a Mileage Plan account (free) to earn the miles. After signing in, search for Road Runner Sports to click on it to... ...

Two Great Offers For The Citi Hilton HHonors Card

It seems that every credit card issuer has a couple of different bonuses one the same exact card – at least a couple! With the basic Citi Hilton HHonors card, that is the case as well. I use the word basic in the sense that this card carries no annual fee and is not marketed as one of the premium hotel cards as with other cards. Not only that, but it does not come with an anniversary bonus. However, the bonus it offers is not basic at all! Two Great Offers For The Citi Hilton HHonors Card Disclaimer: I do not receive a commission for any links in this post The Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature card offers several different items for cardholders and these offerings are the same regardless of the offer you choose: 6x Hilton points for every $1 spent at Hilton properties 3x Hilton points for every $1 spent at supermarkets, drugstores, and gas stations 2x Hilton points for every $1 spent everywhere else Hilton HHonors Silver status as long as... ...

New Discount Partnerships For Aegean Elite Members

The Aegean Miles & Bonus program has changed over the last year and while the biggest changes have not benefited the US-based Aegean elite members that much (like eliminating the long-term status and access to Star Alliance lounges), they have really made the program more beneficial for the people that actually do fly on their airline. As someone who uses Aegean for (almost) any European travel and to get to the larger international airports, I am always appreciative of the benefits that Aegean provides. For instance, the 4 upgrade certificates to business class aboard Aegean/Olympic are great touches and something that is a great value for the added perks of inter-European business class. Of course, they also have the pooling of accounts for Gold members, and the 50% discount tickets around Aegean’s domestic network. New Discount Partnerships For Aegean Elite Members There were new benefits added this week that are perfect for the people that enjoy eating around Greece. Even if you do not live in Greece, if you have upcoming travel... ...

Best Targeted Southwest Credit Card Offers

Targeted credit card offers have always been something of interest, and envy, to people interested in the best bonus. For instance, we have seen targeted 150,000 Membership Reward point offers on the American Express Business Platinum card (I haven’t received one – while some have received multiple offers!). It is a great way for the banks to really entice customers that their metrics show are either going to be the best potential customers for that particular card (either by spending habits on other cards or some similar example) or someone who may have a great credit score but no real business with that particular issuer. Thankfully, it seems that Chase may be stepping up their game a bit more in the targeted card offers – we have seen many instances of the 80,000 IHG point offer + $50 statement credit (which some people have been able to match to, as far as the points, not the statement credit for all) and also seen examples of the United MileagePlus Explorer personal card... ...
