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

2. $25 Off Your Next Virgin America Flight With Visa Checkout
Citi has added Australia’s largest airline as the newest transfer partner to their Citi ThankYou points program.
You can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to Qantas at a 1:1 ratio. So they now have 11 airlines (plus Hilton hotels) to choose from.
Just last month, Citi added Virgin Atlantic as a partner, so they’re expanding to compete with other transferable points programs like Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards.
But there are very few situations where transferring points to Qantas would make sense. That’s because their award chart is expensive compared to most other airlines, and they add fuel surcharges!
Is Transferring Citi ThankYou Points to Qantas a Reason to Jump for Joy?
Let’s have a quick look at Qantas’ frequent flyer program and see if it’s worth transferring points.
You can earn double hotel points or airline miles when you stay at Hilton hotels. To take advantage of this deal, you must stay between March 1, 2015, and May 31, 2015.
