Spending $1 Could Get You 1,100 Southwest Points

This is a good deal because you can often find Southwest flights for 70 points per $1, which could make your 1,100 Southwest points worth ~$16 in travel.  And here’s my post explaining how you can double that value!

2.   Get Apple Watch for ~$250 to Earn ~$2,000+ in Cash Back!

Best Buy has the cheapest prices I’ve seen yet for the Apple Watch.  You can pick up the Apple Watch Sport for $249.

You can buy this, set up Apple Pay (if you have an iPhone 5 or 6), and earn up to ~$2,000+ in cash back with your Discover it or Discover it Miles card when you make in-store purchases by December 31, 2015.

Don’t forget you can earn bonus miles and points whenever you shop online!

3.   1,000 Delta Miles

Do you have an AMEX Delta credit card and dine out frequently?

Then this could be a terrific deal for you!  Complete the form and earn Delta miles with 2 of the listed non-airline partners by February 29, 2016, to earn 1,000 Delta bonus miles.

For example, you could earn the bonus by making a purchase with your AMEX Delta card and by dining at a participating Delta Dining restaurant.  Or earning miles from any other listed partner.

If you have an AMEX Delta credit card and need to top off your Delta account to book an award flight, it’s an easy way to earn 1,000 Delta miles.

4.   25% Bonus on Hawaiian Airlines Miles

Thanks to Million Mile Secrets reader, Miles Methods, for letting me know you can now earn 25% bonus miles when you transfer your AMEX Membership Rewards points to Hawaiian Airlines.

Transfer your points by December 21, 2015, to get the bonus.

  1. Alternatively, the WSJ offer appears to be good for 1,300 AA miles or 800 United miles.

  2. Be cautious of the SWA/WSJ deal — T&C state not available to current subscribers in the same household.

  3. The $1 option did not appear once I clicked through the portal. Other options are available but not that one.

  4. The wsj shows $12 for 12 weeks for me; it’s like $1/ wk not $1 for 2 or 3 months

  5. For those not getting the deal to come up correctly, do NOT click on the SHOP NOW button. Instead, click on the description of the deal itself (below the button).

  6. Thx John, saw it

  7. @Trent – Thanks for the tip!

    @scott daniels – Great to point that out.

    @John – Thanks for helping dan!

    @dan – Glad that worked for you!

  8. How long does it take for the Southwest points to show up on your account? I’m still waiting for mine.

  9. @Trent, good catch. I probably would have went with the AA miles instead.

  10. I took advantage of this back around July for 1,400 points through the same SWA portal.

    Think I can do the same thing and get the AA points with a new subscription? I cancelled my last subscription a couple of months ago.

  11. Do you know anywhere I could buy 8k Amex pt? I am short of 10k hawaiian miles. Thanks.

  12. Thanks for these alerts Daraius…. and after a bit of self-flagellation and rationalization, I bit on the WSJournal deal — despite my revulsion at ever wanting to pay one dime to a Rupert Murdoch owned enterprise.

    I figured I could use the newsprint for starting fires in my stove over the next two months — and thus could stomach a dollar going for the fire starters. Seemed fitting even. 😉

  13. Thanks. I subscribed to wsj. From your link, I saw two offers for 1500 points (instead of 1100)
    1) 2 months for $1
    2) 17 cents a day for 12 weeks

  14. Ironic a liberal drone who burns fossil fuel and pollutes the air: Will S. “…figured I could use the newsprint for starting fires in my stove over the next two months…”

  15. I subscribed a few days ago. Any idea how long it takes for the points to show up?
