You’re the best blog readers in the world! To thank you, this week we’re giving away 20,000 Alaska Airlines miles.
You Could Win Alaska Airlines Miles!
1. Get Into US National Parks for Free for a Year
You can get into US National Parks for free for an entire year and all you need is a 4th grader! Children under 15 get into National Parks for free any time. But now, thanks to the President’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, 4th graders can bring their family along for free during the 2015 to 2016 school year.
A 4th Grader Could Be Your Ticket to the Park
Families who are interested will get a free annual pass. Details on how to get passes have not been released yet, but I’ll let you know when they are!
This is a great excuse to plan a family or school trip to incredible places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore. So get the word out to your friends, relatives, neighbors, and local schools!
Explore the Beauty of Places Like Arches National Park, Utah, for Free!
Don’t Have a 4th Grader?
You can still get into US National Parks for free in 2015 on these dates:
- April 18 to 19 (National Park Week opening weekend)
- August 25 (National Park Service 100th anniversary!)
- September 26 (National Public Lands day)
- November 11 (Veterans Day)
2. $25 Off Your Next Virgin America Flight With Visa Checkout
I wrote several years ago about the best ways to get Hilton points.
Thanks to Million Mile Secrets reader Peter for commenting that it’s time for an update! A lot has changed since 2012.
Since then, Hilton has made significant changes to its award chart, so their points aren’t worth as much as before. But they’re still among the easiest points to get through credit card sign-up bonuses and spending.
Hilton Points Are Still Very Easy to Earn, and I’ll Show You How!
Hilton hotels include DoubleTree, Conrad, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Home2Suites, Homewood Suites, and Waldorf Astoria brand hotels.
Let’s take a fresh look at how you can earn lots of Hilton points.
1. Regus Gold Membership Moves from AMEX Business Platinum to Virgin Atlantic World Elite MasterCard
Via Flyertalk, starting May 1, 2015, Regus Businessworld Gold Membership will no longer be a benefit that comes with the AMEX Business Platinum card.
If you signed-up for the AMEX Business Platinum card, between May 1, 2014, and April 30, 2015, you’ll keep this benefit until your card anniversary date.
With your membership you get:
- Free access to 1,000 Regus business lounges
- Free internet access
- Free refreshments
Regus Businessworld Gold Is Packing Up Their Things and Moving
However, you’ll now get the benefit of Regis Businessworld Gold Membership with the Virgin Atlantic card. Just register your Virgin Atlantic card to activate this perk.
Note: You can also get free access to Regus Business Lounges with your Southwest account!
2. AMEX Offers: $30 in Statement Credits for Your Wireless Phone Bill (Targeted)
Million Mile Secrets reader Hemang commented:
I recall a couple of your past posts where you had used airline miles to book First Class/Business Class tickets for travel to India.
Can you please remind me, which airline miles should one accumulate for such a redemption? I am collecting miles on American Airlines.
If I recall correctly, you had mentioned collecting Alaska Airlines and American Airlines miles and using them on other international airlines.
