1. 100 Free Hertz Points
Hertz, the car rental agency, has a free days promotion where you can earn 250 Hertz points for every rental of 2 days or more up to December 15, 2013. You have to register before renting a car, and here’s the link to register.
But you can earn 100 free points for free – without renting a car!
You get 50 bonus points just for registering. And you’ll get another 50 points after you answer a quick survey.
Hertz points can be helpful if you’re looking to save money for a 1-way car rental. Here’s the link to the Hertz award chart.
2. 250 Free Virgin America Points
Virgin America is giving away a trip to Dubai up to November 21, 2013.
You will get 250 Virgin America points just for “liking” the page on Facebook and entering your name, email address, and Virgin America Elevate number.
Here’s a link to sign-up for a Virgin America account if you don’t have one.
3. 390 British Airways Avios Points
Via Head for Points, you can earn up to 390 Avios via the Facebook App Avios Suitcase. This is a bit too much work for only 390 Avios points, but you do get free points…
Note that you have to open an Avios account (different from your British Airways Executive Club account) and then transfer the Avios points to your British Airways account.
Also note that you need a UK or South African address to sign-up for an Avios account. You can’t sign-up for an Avios account with a US address.
1. Log Into Facebook
Log into your Facebook account and search for “Avios Suitcase App” or try clicking this link (the link doesn’t always work).
Unlock your suitcase, when you are in the Avios Suitcase App and earn 100 Avios points.
2. Link Your Avios.com Account
You get another 150 Avios when you link your avios.com account number to Avios Suitcase.
You get another 20 Avios points when you vote and share the “where you will fly” link.
4. Like Avios On Facebook
You get another 20 Avios points when you “like” the Avios UK Facebook page.
So that’s 290 Avios points. Points are supposed to transfer at the end of the month but Head for Points got his the next day.
Supposedly you can get up to 390 Avios but I wasn’t given any other options to earn points. I believe that you may get more ways to earn points if you log in to the app later.
Getting all 290 Avios took about an hour because the app was so s-l-o-w. To be clear – this is NOT worth 1 hour of your time!
