Good afternoon and I hope you had a tremendous weekend! In what seems like the first time in a long time, my wife and I just sat outside and took in the gorgeous weather for a little bit on Saturday. It is times like that that really make me dread traveling since we have such a beautiful view, wonderful weather, and great space for the kids. 🙂 But, the travel bug does come along and bite from time to time anyway!
Miles, Points, and Deals
- The New US Bank Altitude Reserve Application Is Live! – This is the latest and greatest premium card on the market and I am happy to say that I was approved for it! My go-to retailer for reselling is one without portal payouts but I can use Apple Pay from my laptop or phone so I am ready to rack up some 3X points!
- Earn 3,000 JetBlue Points with Amazon Prime – If you are one of the people in the US that does not have Amazon Prime, check out this deal and get 3,000 JetBlue points (worth at least $45).
- 2 New Amex Transfer Bonuses to Partners – Sitting on some Amex MR points and want to extend your value? Check out these two transfer bonuses.
- Daily Getaways: Hilton Points On Sale – Should You Buy? – [Expired] I was surprised on this one! I didn’t think the point packages were that great of a deal but they sold out!
- 2 New Promos to Get More American Airline Bonus Miles – It takes a lot more AA miles to fly premium than it used to so any chance to get more miles is always a good thing!
- Earn 1,000 AA Miles for Each Best Western Stay – And here is yet another way to earn some AA miles!
- Buy Unlimited United Miles for 2.2 Cents Each – And Get Magazines – [Expired] While this is expired, I did just want to point it out since it is a nice way to top up your account when you need a few miles and you don’t want to spend 3.5 cents each to get them. Even though this is expired, there are often deals like this so keep your eyes open!
- Ways to Redeem Cash Back for More Value – Dustin lays out some great ways to redeem cash back to get even more value from your cards!
- Save Up to 15% On Southwest With This Gift Card Sale – [Expired] Again, even though this is expire, I wanted to highlight this deal. Southwest sales are quite common and a great way to save but if you take advantage of deals like this, you can really stretch your savings!
- Great Deal Today – 20% Off Marriott Gift Cards & Why You Should Buy – [Expired] Man, I wanted this one so bad! I was in a meeting that went long and looked at my watch and realized I missed it by 30 minutes! Arrgghh! Did you get any of the gift cards?
- Southwest Sale Extended – Flights from $39 – Southwest has extended their most recent sale so you still have some time to book and save.
- Earn Up to 100,000 UR Points If You Have the Chase Ink Preferred or Plus – If you have a Chase Ink card, this is a great way to get some extreme points for helping others get signed up!
- Best Offer: 30K Alaska Miles, $100 Credit, & Free Companion Ticket = Great Value – This is definitely one of the better card offers out there right now! Find out why you should get this offer!
- One Smart Way Chase & Amex Are Offering Great Value to Cardholders – Amex and Chase have really been working to retain their customers and this is one great way they do it. Even though I have cards I don’t use, I keep them because of this reason.
- The 2017 Star MegaDO Details Are Here! – If you have never been on one of these and you love all things aviation, you should definitely check it out!
- Watch: The Attempt To Break the 2 Hour Marathon Mark – Spoiler alert – they didn’t do it but one of them got soooo close! Really a great effort by all!
- There Is A New World’s Fastest Time in the Marathon! – While not a world record, this marathon is now the fastest ever run! Absolutely amazing what they did!
- The Fastest Lounge WiFi I Ever Had – At A Surprising Lounge! – US lounges are notorious for having sub-par offerings compared to their foreign counterparts. But, this particular lounge had the fastest WiFi I have ever used in a lounge!
And that is it for last week! Hope you are off to a great start of the week and that you have a good one!
Working for New Elite Status
I am working on running the numbers on a new status (actually, it will end up as 4 status levels) that I may want to get soon. I think I can do it and keep the out-of-pocket costs quite reasonable, considering what I will get in exchange. Hopefully I will have it all figured out soon and can do a writeup on it then!
