A Sweet Ride for a Fraction of the Price!

Round-trip Business Class seats from Newark to London typically cost ~$2,000 to ~$4,000.  So this is an excellent deal for folks who had plans to pay for a Business Class flight to London.

However, I still prefer to use miles!

2.    10 Free Lyft Rides in 6 Major US Cities

Uber just increased their free 1st-time ride credit to $30.  And now The Reward Boss writes that 1st-time users can get 10 free Lyft rides (up to $20 each, except New York City which is $5 each).  In Philadelphia you’ll get 20 rides for up to $20 each!

This offer is good in the following cities:

  • Denver – enter promotional code “10RIDES”
  • New York – enter promotional code “10RIDES”
  • Philadelphia – enter promotional code “PHILLY”
  • Washington, DC – enter promotional code “10RIDES”

You must sign-up for Lyft (known for vehicles with pink mustaches) in 1 of the participating cities.  You should receive a confirmation of your 10 free rides via text.

No Flights to Complete! With Just a Click of a Button You’ll Have Southwest A-List Status Through April 18, 2015

And if you take 3 round-trip or six 1-way flights on Southwest by April 18, 2015, you can extend your A-List status through December 31, 2015.

With Southwest A-List status you get:

  • 25% bonus on miles
  • Priority boarding
  • Priority check-in and security lanes where available

But my favorite Southwest status is the Companion Pass because a friend can fly with you for (almost) free for up to 2 years!

5.   30% Bonus When You Buy Hyatt Points (Targeted)

Have you purchased Hyatt points?  If not, you may get an email from Hyatt offering a 30% point bonus on your 1st purchase.  You must buy the Hyatt points by February 15, 2015 (next Sunday), to get the bonus.

30% Bonus Points When You Purchase Hyatt Points

Buying Hyatt points with this bonus may save you some money on the regular price of a Hyatt hotel (depending on where you stay).

Keep in mind, you will NOT earn bonus points for buying Hyatt points with cards like the Barclays Arrival, Chase Sapphire Preferred, and Chase Hyatt.

That’s because these purchases go through Points.com not Hyatt.  Also there are plenty of other ways to earn Hyatt points for less.

  1. For NYC, I only got 10 free rides up to $5 each and 1 free ride up to $20

  2. Lyft offer didn’t work for me, just the standard $20 offer. When I tried to apply the code, it said the code was already applied. The only offer listed a bit lower in the app was the 1 free ride for $20. Now I don’t live in one of the 6 cities, I hoped to just use it in Chicago for a trip in a couple weeks, but it doesn’t look like it will work.

  3. just out of curiosity, what do you or anyone else value southwest a-list at?

    I got the promotion and have 4 upcoming Southwest segments. Debating if adding anther RT flight may be worth it

  4. Lyft ride tip – it’s possible to churn accounts. Downloading texting apps to get a new number and using that will allow you to create a new profile.

    Just got my 10 free rides for $20ea in Denver

  5. @rick it usually only works if you are in the city while you are signing up. The app knows your location. If you want to get the promo, you can wait until you get to the city then signup. If it’s a few days or a week later it will probably work otherwise they can change the offer at any time.

  6. when i clicked the lyft link, it brought me to a page where the signup was tied to code “DARAIUS2” which prevented me from using the code 10RIDES after i downloaded the app. the error was that the code was only for new members only. i emailed lyft and was told that technically i was no longer a new member since i had signed up minutes ago using DARAIUS2. just FYI.
