Looking for more United Airlines miles without applying for a new credit card?
Via Reddit, some folks have been targeted to earn 40,000 (or more!) United Airlines miles for spending $2,000+ on tickets purchased and flown by November 30, 2016.
Were You Targeted to Receive Bonus United Airlines Miles for Spending Money on Airfare This Year?
Here are the details. And how to check if you’re targeted.
There’s an amazing mistake fare this morning between several US cities and Peru on Avianca.
Via SecretFlying, you can fly to Cusco or Lima, Peru, for as little as ~$407 round-trip in Business Class! Travel dates are in June 2016.
That’s an incredible deal!
Because this is a mistake fare, there’s a chance it MAY not be honored. So don’t book non-refundable hotels or activities just yet!

This will NOT last. I’ll share the details!
Last year, Chase stopped approving many folks for some of their cards, like the Freedom and Sapphire Preferred, if they’d opened ~5 or more credit cards (from any bank) in the past 24 months.
Via Doctor of Credit and Reddit, these stricter rules now apply to more of their cards.
If You’ve Opened 5+ New Credit Cards in the Last 24 Months, You’ll Find It Tougher to Be Approved for Certain Chase Cards
While there’s no official word from Chase about this change, I’ll share what I know and what this means for you.

1. 4 Airlines Added to TSA Pre-Check
TSA Pre-Check is a great way to save time at the airport. Via One Mile at a Time, there are 4 new airlines participating in TSA Pre-Check.
The new additions are Aeromexico, Cape Air, Etihad, and Seaborne Airlines.
Fly Through the Airport Security Line! TSA Pre-Check Is Expanding to Include 4 Additional International Airlines
This means when you fly these airlines at eligible US airports, you’ll have expedited security screening and won’t have to take off your shoes or remove a laptop from your bag.
You can apply for TSA Pre-Check, but it’s a better deal to sign-up for Global Entry (which comes with TSA Pre-Check). Plus, with Global Entry you’ll get through US Customs faster when you travel back to the US.
Global Entry costs $100 and is valid for 5 years. But the fee is refunded if you pay with one of these cards:
Remember these tips for getting a quicker Global Entry appointment.
