Heads up! Many IHG hotels are changing their prices. Starting February 17, 2016, ~400 hotels will require 5,000 or 10,000 more OR fewer IHG points for an award stay.
The InterContinental London Park Lane Is 1 of the ~400 Changing Prices on February 17, 2016
But, reservations made before February 17, 2016, will be honored at their current prices.
I’ll explain the changes. Because for certain hotels it’s best to book now. But for others it’s better to wait!

1. Earn 50,000 United Airlines Miles With a Targeted Card Offer
Link: Chase United Airlines Card 50,000 Mile Offer (Log-in Required)
Folks on Reddit report a targeted offer for the Chase United Airlines Explorer card when they visit this link and log into their United Airlines account.
If you see the offer, you’ll earn 50,000 United Airlines miles when you spend $1,000 on purchases in the 1st 3 months of account opening.
No 50,000 United Airlines Mile Offer for Me! But Check to See If You Were Targeted
You’ll also get a $50 statement credit after your 1st purchase. And you can add an authorized user to earn 5,000 bonus United Airlines miles after they make a purchase within the 1st 3 months.
I checked my account and only got the regular offer to earn 30,000 United Airlines miles after meeting the minimum spending requirements. But if you’re targeted, this is a terrific way to earn lots of United Airlines miles. It’s worth trying!

Last year, there was a terrific opportunity for folks to meet minimum spending requirements and earn lots of airline miles by funding a new Citigold checking account with a credit card. And now it’s back!
If you’re eligible, when you open a new Citigold checking account, you can fund the account with a Visa or MasterCard to meet your minimum spending requirements.
And if you meet certain conditions, you’ll earn 50,000 American Airlines miles. That’s enough for 2 domestic round-trip coach award flights!
There’s also an offer to earn 40,000 Citi ThankYou points. See my previous post for how those points work. And what you can (and can’t!) do with them.
Meet Your Minimum Spending Requirements and Earn 50,000 American Airlines Miles – Just Make Sure to Read the Fine Print!
I’ll show you how to sign-up for this offer. And how to make the most of it!

1. Get 1,000 Free Southwest Points for Filing Your Taxes
Link: TurboTax Southwest Promotion
Folks on Reddit report you can get 1,000 Southwest points when you file your taxes with TurboTax this year.
If You Have Simple Taxes, File With TurboTax and Get 1,000 Southwest Points!
And, the free online version of TurboTax qualifies for this deal, so the extra Southwest points cost you nothing!
To get the offer, files your taxes by April 18, 2016 (or April 19, 2016, for folks in Maine and Massachusetts), and be sure to click through this page.
Lots of folks commented they had to follow-up with Southwest to receive their bonus points. And keep in mind federal taxes are free to file, but you may have to pay to file state taxes, depending on where you live.
This promotion isn’t right for everybody. I do NOT recommend filing your taxes with TurboTax just to earn free points. But if y’all were planning to file online anyway, this is an easy way to build your Southwest points balance!
