1.   2X United Airlines Miles for IHG Stays

Via MichaelWTravels, you can get 2X United Airlines miles (up to 10,000 miles) when you stay at IHG hotels through April 30, 2015.

Like the 2X Delta Airlines miles offer for IHG stays, you have to register before your 1st stay AND you have to choose miles as your earning preference in your IHG profile.

2.   $10 Serve Credit for New Accounts Who Direct Deposit Their Tax Refund

Maximizing Money reports that you can get a $10 Serve credit for opening a new Serve account and have your tax refund directly deposited into your account.

You have to file your tax return by April 15, 2015.

I wrote about a targeted $20 offer for those with new Serve accounts who also direct deposit their tax refund, but now the offer is open to everyone.

$10 Serve Credit New Account Credit When You Direct Deposit Your Tax Return

If you prefer to use Bluebird (for folks who like to drive, not me!) you can also get a $10 credit for opening a new Bluebird account when you direct deposit your tax return.

Here are my posts explaining AMEX Bluebird and AMEX Serve.

3.   New Lyft Users Get 20 Free Lyft Rides in Philadelphia

The Reward Boss is reporting that new Lyft users can get 20 free $20 Lyft rides in Philadelphia.  Austin doesn’t get any love. 🙁

If you sign-up for Lyft using my link, we both get a $20 credit.

You’ll see the 20 free rides in the Lyft app.  But if you don’t, enter promotion code “PHILLY” before requesting your 1st Lyft ride.

Because this is a travel purchase, you can use your Chase Sapphire Preferred for 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  Or use your Barclays Arrival card for 2.2% back (minimum $25 redemption).
