1. Fly From Toronto to Beijing for ~$418 Round-Trip
Via YYZ Deals, Hainan Airlines will celebrate its 5th year anniversary of flying between Toronto and Beijing with non-stop round-trip fares in coach for only $555 Canadian dollars (~$418).
And round-trip Business Class fares start at
$2,015 Canadian dollars (~$1,518), which is also a terrific deal!
You can purchase tickets starting September 16, 2015 at 9:00 am Eastern Time.
Terms & Conditions
- Must depart between November 22, 2015, and December 2, 2015
- For coach fares, you must return between November 25, 2015, and March 2, 2015
- For Business Class fares, you must return between November 22, 2015, and June 2, 2016
- Seats are available until September 23, 2016, but limited to availability
Remember, you can earn Alaska Airlines miles for flights on Hainan Airlines. And then use them to fly on other airline partners, like Cathay Pacific!
You can get to Toronto with 4,500 British Airways Avios points if you’re under 650 miles away, from cities including:
- New York
- Washington, DC
And if you’re less than 700 miles away, you can use United Airlines miles to fly to Toronto for 10,000 United Airlines miles each way.
As of now, Southwest does NOT fly to Toronto, but you can fly to Buffalo, and then take a shuttle to the Toronto airport.
Pay with a card that earns bonus points! The Chase Sapphire Preferred card earns 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points on travel. And the Citi Prestige and Citi ThankYou Premier cards both earn 3X Citi ThankYou points on airfare purchases.
2. Get $50 Off $200+ at Rocketmiles Hotels
Be sure to book your stay by October 30, 2015.
You can also tweet “#AmexRocketmiles” to add it to your synced AMEX card.
The biggest drawback is you may or may not earn elite status credit when you book through Rocketmiles. But lots of folks report their stays do count, especially if you make a small charge to your room.
You may not earn hotel points for your stays booked through Rocketmiles, either. The best use of the service is for non-hotel chains where you wouldn’t earn miles, points, or elite status credits anyway.
You may also be able to stack this deal with other promotions and discounts, too!
This promotion is valid at any hotel booked online or through the Rocketmiles app. If you have a trip coming up, this is an easy way to save up to 25% and earn more miles or points!
3. Get $25 Back When You Stay 2 Times With Best Western
If you stay 2 times at Best Western hotels through November 22, 2015, you’ll earn a $25 Best Western gift card.
Registration is required for the promotion, or you can sign-up for Best Western Rewards on the promotion page (free to join!).
Keep in mind the $25 Best Western gift card must be redeemed on or before January 4, 2016, at a Best Western hotel. This is a great way to save if you like Best Western hotels!
You can only receive 1 gift card during the promotion period, and must have a valid email address to participate, because the gift card will be emailed to you after you complete your stays.
4. Earn Bonus Points at Choice Hotels After 2 Stays
You can earn between 5,000 and 8,000 Choice Hotel points from this promotion. The number of bonus points you’ll receive is based on the number of base points earned from the 2 qualifying stays. So you’ll have enough for an award night at a mid-range Choice Hotel. Or you can save up for a longer award stay!
Trips at Econo Lodge, Rodeway Inn, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, or MainStay Suites hotels must be at least 2 nights to count toward this promotion.
Remember you can transfer Choice hotel points to Southwest at a ratio of 6,000 Choice Hotel points to 1,800 Southwest points.
This is a great promotion if you have stays coming up at Choice Hotels, so be sure to register!
