Welcome back to our Sunday Summary Series where we review the posts that were covered throughout the past week.
Unfortunately, this deal has expired. It was a good deal on a great tablet. If you don’t want to miss deals like this, make sure you follow along on the blog for great deals!
Amex is hitting it hard with great offers for spending. On this one, you can get $10 back on spending of $50 or more at Office Max/Office Depot. This works online or in store. If you want to get some free cash, you can use your Amex cards in store to buy Visa gift cards and make a little bit of money before unloading them. If you choose to use them online, there is a $20 coupon that could help.
Southwest has extended their schedule through June 5. If you are planning on running the Boston Marathon, make sure you check out the offers available as you can now lock in your travel!
The Chase Sapphire Preferred made a change this week and increases the required spending by $1,000 (now, you need to spend $4,000 in 3 months to get the 40,000 points). However, they also refreshed the referral bonus for this card – so you can refer your friends and get points if they are approved. If you do not currently have the card (or you have not had the bonus in at least 24 months), you could sign up through my link and then refer friends to get more points! – Chase Sapphire Preferred
Yet another Amex offer! This one will get you some luggage at a great discount while earning some great miles/points.
Now Expired. This 20% off JetBlue discount was for a two day booking period. If you missed out on this, don’t worry – another one should be out soon!
The Chase Freedom bonus has been doubled – now earn $200 cash back (or 20,000 Ultimate Reward points when transferred to your Sapphire Preferred or Ink card) after spending only $500 in 3 months! If you already have this card, you can refer your friends and family using this link here. Again, if you do not have the card (or have not had the bonus in at least 24 months), you can sign-up with my link and then refer your friends and family to get the bonus points from that! – Chase Freedom
Delta made some significant changes to their award calendar. It works a lot more like an award calendar should and is much more functional. The improvements are great, but the big problem still exists.
United made some significant changes to their baggage policies this week, but that was not it. They also announced that they will no longer allow their elite flyers to transfer their status with award tickets. This means that family members flying on award tickets booked from a United 1K account (for example) will no longer receive the extra baggage allowance, priority access, or any of the other benefits that currently exist.
On the heels of United’s changes, JetBlue also announced changes. These changes are headlined by the fact that they will be adding bag fees as they launch new fare families and they will be reducing legroom on their 320 aircraft. The good news is that they will retain the title of having the most legroom in coach on domestic US flights.
If you have so many United miles you absolutely don’t know what to do, this might be something you have an interest in. 🙂
Delta is really trying to convince their customers that the upcoming changes are good ones. This post takes their reasons one by one to give you some insight into what they are really trying to tell you!
If you refer your friends or family to open a new Southwest account, you can get up to 2,000 Southwest points for yourself!
For now, the payout from AA is back to 8x miles, but you should still check out this post and save the offer because the big payout will come back on some airline for sure.
