This post gives a roundup of the posts found throughout the week here at Running with Miles. There were a lot of posts covering travel deals, item deals, running posts, credit cards and more!
Last week, we saw a lot of great new Amex Offers hit. It is important to be ready to save these offers when they hit as the best deals can disappear quickly. If you want to save them automatically, check out Wandering Aramean’s tool Sync Offers to sync automatically on Twitter.
Southwest sale’s are just about a monthly rollout. But, they are great for future travel and for travel already booked. Because you can cancel tickets for free (and get a refund of a cash ticket as credit towards future flights), these sales are a great way to save money.
eBay ran a wonderful coupon for everyone that was for 10% off all kinds of electronics. Unlike the targeted 5X eBay Bucks offers, this was straight 10% off offer and was a great way to save some money.
Southwest released their new schedule and, unfortunately, it just missed the timing of the biggest running event in Orlando. If you need to book the travel now, check out JetBlue who’s schedule is open in February.
JetBlue launched a sale of their own with a city pair starting at $29. JetBlue sale’s can be another great way to lock in great tickets and to get those prices in for summer travel is wonderful.
eBay decided to run another 10% off code on the same day they ran a targeted 5X eBay Bucks offer. This equated to getting $50 off a $500 item plus getting $50 back to spend on eBay in the future! This is one of those great deal combos that you need to look out for!
Hyatt and Avis have a nice promotion going on now where you can get discounts, upgrades, and 1,000 Hyatt points. If you have an upcoming car rental, this is a great thing to consider to build up your hotel point account.
Costa Rica is a beautiful country and one I would love to explore more on another visit. This post shows you how you can build a points package to get and stay there for almost nothing!
Amex recently changed their spending requirement for the SPG card. There a lot of people that are interested in the spending change but there is also a reason you may want to way just a little bit.
City Sports is a sporting goods store and this Amex offer (along with the discounts) can get you some great gear at a serious discount.
This is a deal case study that shows you how to take a basic deal alert and turn it into a serious cost savings on items. This one combines several elements and can be applied to any deal you find around.
Another deal roundup – this one for getting 20% off luggage and clothing as well as 15X AA miles at eBags. These deal roundups give you a variety of deals on any given day to let you stay up to date with them!
Singapore Air has some really great awards and airplanes. This deal gives you the opportunity to get awards throughout the network for 50% fewer miles.
If you like anything to do with space, this marathon is for you! This race opens for registration tomorrow and you can actually be eating your pre-race dinner under a Saturn V rocket!
One airline is taking an interesting way of getting the funding to get off the ground – crowdfunding. To help lure people in, they are offering pilot interviews for a contribution of $5,000. But, it comes with some exceptions! 🙂
Hotel elite status levels are basically all over the place with how they reward their customers. With IHG, their level of Gold has to be one of the most unrewarding elite statuses around due to one big element of the IHG program.
We all save a lot of money and it is always a great thing to be able to give back. I would be honored if you would help to give back in this way to a very worthy charity in honor of this holiday weekend.
If you have the SPG Amex cards, you can earn up to 55,000 SPG points by getting your friends and family members to sign up. Find out where to go to sign up!
The SPG Amex has adopted a new spending offer on the personal card but the public offer for the business card has stayed the same – but you can get the new $3,000 spending offer through referrals! If you would like a referral for the business SPG Amex card requiring $3,000 in 3 months for 25,000 SPG points, please e-mail me at email@example.com If you are approved, I will receive 5,000 points as well – thank you!
Another deal roundup! This one is for accessories, fitness equipment, and electronics. While the Proform Trainer is no longer available at the sale price, you can still pick up the Oakley sunglasses at a huge discount or save 10% on computers, tablets, or more!
If you want to grab a discount hotel booking, this is a great way to do it! Using two deal opportunities, you can get $45 off $300 hotel bookings on Jetsetter.
