2. JetBlue Now Charging for Checked Bags, Adds Wi-Fi and New Fare Options
News Fares and No More Free Checked Bags
Via The Points Guy, JetBlue introduced fare bundles on June 30, 2015.
You’ll now have to pay more if you want to check a bag. The lowest-priced fare bundle does NOT include a free checked bag.
Prices for checked bags are either $20 online or $25 at the airport. Unless you buy a more expensive ticket that includes a checked bag.
The new fares are called Blue, Blue Plus, and Blue Flex. Here’s an overview of what’s included with each one:
JetBlue Is Adding Wi-Fi to All Flights
JetBlue is also adding free in-flight broadband Wi-Fi to their planes.
It’s already on certain flights.
On a recent flight, my friend sent a screenshot and the speeds were good for in-flight internet!
JetBlue is also adding 10-inch personal video screens to seats in every plane.
I’ll stick to Southwest because you still get 2 free checked bags. And of course for the best deal in domestic travel, the Companion Pass!
3. Use Citi Wallet at NewEgg.com and Get $20 off $50+ Purchases
Update: The “CITIWALLET” promotion code is no longer valid.
Via Credit Card Watcher, Citi recently introduced Citi Wallet, which allows you to quickly check-out with a personal Citi credit card on certain websites. You won’t have to enter your credit card information or billing address.
When you check out with Citi Wallet at NewEgg.com, you can get $20 off a purchase of $50 or more. The promotion ends either on July 12, 2015, or when Citi Wallet reaches 7,250 redemptions, whichever comes first.
In addition to checking out with Citi Wallet on NewEgg.com, you’ll also need to enter the promotion code “CITIWALLET“ on the check-out screen.
4. Get 5,000 Bonus Club Carlson Points This Summer
5,000 points are more than halfway toward a free stay at a Category 1 Club Carlson hotel.
To get the bonus points, book with the “Summer5K” promotion code.
You must be a Club Carlson member (free to join!) to take part in the promotion.
5. Get $30 Off $100+ Purchases 3X at BJ’s with AMEX Offers
I’ve written about how to register for AMEX Offers.
You can use the offer up to 3 times by August 15, 2015. And you can combine it with in-store coupons or sales.
30% off purchases at warehouse stores is a great deal! Especially considering you can use it multiple times and sync it to more than 1 AMEX card.
Check your AMEX account to see if you were targeted!
