This has been a tough blog week for me as it was very busy elsewhere! That meant I couldn’t cover everything I wanted this week which means that there will be some of the posts this week that I had planned to do last week. Hopefully you all had a good week! This is the busy time of year for sure and certainly not a great one for travel. It is also not a good one if you are trying to clinch your elite status with that big date of January 1 creeping closer and closer!
Miles, Points, & Travel
- Increased Offer For Hilton Surpass With 80,000 Hilton Points – This is another increase on a great card. Not only does it carry Hilton Gold status (which I think is the best mid-tier hotel status) but it also gives 80,000 points which can get you anywhere from several nights at Hiltons to almost 1 night at a top-tier hotel.
- Where To Get Passport Pages Added In Less Than A Day – Before It Is Too Late – The time to get pages added to your passport is drawing to a close as the State Department will not add pages as of January 1, 2016. This post gives you the details on how to get this done before it is too late – and where you can get it done in about an hour.
- IHG Sweetens The Uber Deal With 2,000 Points & $20 Credit – It seems like everyone has Uber affiliate links now but IHG has sweetened the deal by adding 2,000 points to the offer.
- Great Amazon Deals: Portable Battery Charger, 25% Off Luggage, Shoes & More, & 25% Off Select Under Armour – [Expired] This was a good round of deals that was Amazon but has since expired.
- Here Is 1 Money Saving Tip For Reselling On eBay – There are many people that have been buying and reselling on eBay to generate miles and points. But, some may not realize there is a way that you can get quite a bit off the final value fee to increase your bottom line.
- Great New SPG Transfer Partner Opens Up Excellent Award Chart [Full Booking Details] – This is great news that I have been looking forward to for a while – SPG has added Aegean Airlines as a transfer partner! Aegean has a great award chart that opens up a lot of great deals on Star Alliance carriers and now they are a Starpoint transfer away! This post gives all the details about booking these great awards.
- Book Hyatt Stays Now Before 4 Days Of Downtime This Week – Tuesday marks the beginning of 4 days of scheduled downtime by Hyatt for the Gold Passport program. If you want to book any stays involving points, get those booked now!
Like I said – a slow week here! But, thank you for continuing to make Running with Miles a part of your reading day. I always appreciate the interactions and for you dropping by for a read! Have a great week!
