This deal was only valid for a couple of hours on Monday but was a great deal! There was a wide range of hotels around the world that were available for almost free after the coupon code.

Great Deal: 18X United Miles And Best Price On Rosetta Stone

Another Cyber Monday deal and another reason to hold the United credit card. This deal of 18x United miles was only for cardholders, others received 12X miles – which was still incredible! This was a great deal for a great program.

Great Deal Today Only: Reebok Sale + Amex Offer

This was yet another Cyber Monday deal that enabled a lot of savvy shoppers to pick up some great deals on Reebok gear. It mixed a site wide 40% coupon with the American Express cashback offer.

JetBlue launched another two-day booking sale that saw some cheaper fares throughout January and February.

Amazon’s 30% Off Of $100 Sale – Clothing, Shoes, Luggage

This was another entry by Amazon in the deal blitz. There were some great deals for thousands of items. We had problem with our order, but Amazon did right by us (after three phone calls) and refunded 30% of the price for us. If you have a similar problem, make sure you give them a call.

New Global Smartphone and 1 Year Amazon Prime For $199

Amazon’s Fire Phone was certainly the entrant into the smartphone market that Amazon would have hoped, but it was a really great deal at $199 for both the phone (unlocked for international use) and one year of Amazon Prime!

Results of the Orbitz $100 Off $100

I made out very well with the Orbitz sale. I was able to snag 6 different hotels in 3 different cities at great prices.

Hyatt Offering 1,000 Points To Certain Members

With no apparent rhyme or reason, Hyatt was sending out e-mails to certain members to give them 1,000 points. Make sure you check your e-mail or use the link in this post to find out if you have an extra 1,000 points waiting for you.

Delta Employee Arrested For Fraudulently “Giving” Delta Tickets Away

This man “gave” away tens of thousands of dollars in tickets, vouchers, and upgrades that he (allegedly) stole from Delta, his employer. Something I found interesting in this article was how low the value on the seat upgrades was. I would have thought it would have been much higher.

If you are a Hotel Tonight user, here is a way you can get $25 credit for a future reservation.

Mega Giveaway Coming Next Week! Lots Of Stuff!

This coming week, we will be having a mega giveaway to thank all of the readers! Make sure you check each day as we will be giving away 3 different prizes each day.

An Airline Wants To Give You Miles To Take A Loan

This airline wants to give you miles in exchange for taking on debt. Not a good deal at all as you will be paying a lot more than miles are worth, especially these miles.

United Sale On Partner Award Seats In Business Class To Europe

United Airlines is having a sale of sorts for partner award tickets in business class to Europe and beyond. The sale is that they are actually letting you fly on partners at the same price as United’s business class. It is still more than it was last year (before the devaluation), but a great way to save 25,000 miles for each roundtrip.
