1.  Chase Hyatt Credit Card.   I’ve just been told that the Chase Hyatt credit card with no minimum spending through my affiliate link will be available until 10:00 am EST tomorrow (October 10, 2012).  The offer was supposed to disappear today, but I’ve been informed that it will be available for another day.

Yesterday, I posted on a different offer for the Chase Hyatt credit card which doesn’t pay me a referral, but is likely the better deal (if you can meet the $1,000 spending) because you get a $100 statement credit after spending $1,000 within 3 months.

2.   Southwest Fare Sale.   Hack My Trip writes that Southwest has a 40% fare sale for Wanna Get Away fares.

Use code “BIGDEAL40” in the Promo Code box when making your booking

You have to buy your tickets by 11:59 pm PST, Thursday,October 11, 2012 and here are some restrictions.

  •  Travel between November 28, 2012 and December 12, 2012 or January 7, 2013 and February 14, 2013
  • No Sunday travel
  • Round trip travel only
  • There are blackout dates and restrictions on very few flights

I tested a few flights, but found that the discount was only for paid Southwest flights.  Award flights did not show the 40% discount.

If you cancel a paid flight on Southwest, the ticketed passenger gets a credit which can be used for up to 1 year after the booking was made, with no change fee.

If you’ve already booked trips, it doesn’t hurt to check to see if they are available for less because you can always cancel and rebook your flights for no change fee.

 3.   5,000 United Miles for United Credit Card Holders Update.  Million Mile Secrets reader Josnei commented that the 5,000 United mile offer which I blogged about earlier appears to be targeted.

Mommy Points has an update as well.  I wouldn’t spend money on my United card in the hope of getting the extra miles for this promotion.

  1. It’s such a bummer regarding the united 5K offer. Easy points for sure. I took a screenshot of the sign up and might send an email to Chase ask if there is anything that can be done.

  2. @Grant, I emailed Chase. They said I must correspond with United as it’s their promotion.

  3. @nissim, that sounds like a long shot then. Not sure who I would call or email…

  4. @Grant
    Yea, and from my experience, they can take up to one week to reply. I’m not holding my breath. Just hoping to see the points in my account. I do plan on calling United because I have a few questions regarding my log-in info. If I am successful, I will let the list know what they respond to regarding the miles. Write down your specific question (for me to ask.) Alternatively, you can try to call: The MileagePlus Service Center is open 7 a.m. – midnight ( CT ), 7 days a week.  If calling from the U.S. or Canada, please call 800-421-4655.  To reach us from outside the U.S. and Canada, please call 605-348-0011 or contact your local United reservations office.

  5. Good luck, I am eager to hear what they say…

  6. What would you like for me to ask on your behalf?

  7. Nothing in particular, just “I want my miles! When will you give them to me??” Something along those lines 🙂

  8. I just called the 800 number listed above and asked if I was targeted, and they said that I was. One lingering issue, however–the rep said that it was a promotion of United and Visa; well I have a Chase MileagePlus card issued by Mastercard. I went back to the original online offer, and there is no mention of Visa or Mastercard on it–I will press that point if I do not get my points in January.
