3.   Triple Southwest Points With Best Western

You can get 1,800 Southwest points (triple points) when you stay at any Best Western hotel in the US, Canada, or Caribbean by May 1, 2015.

But you have to register first and have your earnings set to Southwest.

Note:  Only 600 of the 1,800 Southwest points will count towards the Southwest Companion Pass.  That’s because bonus points from promotions do NOT count, but regular partner bonus points count.

1,800 Southwest points are worth ~$26 in airfare (1,800 points x 1.43 cents per point), so this is a good deal!

  1. Man, I do enjoy Starbucks Frappuccinos, especially when they’re 50% off. But lately I’ve had to pass on these Starbucks afternoon-only deals since, if I have caffeine in the afternoon, I find it a bit difficult to fall asleep at night. (Took me a while to notice this too.)

    Personally, I’m hoping that Costco brings back the Biggby gift cards for 20% off again this upcoming holiday season. (Note that the 20% will then stack with the weekly Biggby mailing coupons (usually $1 off), thereby making their lattes about 37% off.) I’ve already burned through the Biggby gift cards I bought this past December. : )
