25% Transfer Bonus for Converting Hotel Points to Airline Miles

Via One Mile at a Time, you can convert hotel points from 9 hotel programs to American Airlines and receive a 25% bonus through June 15, 2017.

I usually do NOT recommend transferring hotel points to airlines, because you’ll get much less value per point.  But there are some situations where it makes sense!

One of These (Many!) Targeted Offers Is Worth ~$140 in JetBlue Flights

Yesterday I told you about a few targeted spending bonuses that were being offered on various Barclaycard cards, like the Arrival Plus and JetBlue Plus cards.

And now, folks have reported receiving offers on other cards too!  Including cards issued by Chase, like the Chase IHG and Chase Hyatt card.  And a different (but great!) offer on the Barclaycard JetBlue Plus card.

So it’s worth checking your email, spam, and snail mail to see if you qualify for any of these deals.

Most of these offers are 2nd quarter promotions, so the spending requirement will likely run from April 1, 2017, through June 30, 2017.  And most of the offers require activating your card, but there are a few exceptions!

Targeted Bonus Spending Offers

The 10,000 JetBlue Points You Can Earn With One of These Targeted Offers Is Worth ~$140 in JetBlue Flights to Awesome Destinations Like San Juan, Puerto Rico

I’ll share more about these targeted offers.  And help you decide whether they make sense for you.

Everything to Know About TSA PreCheck

If you enjoy standing in long lines, removing items from your carry-on, or pulling off your coat in record speeds, this post is not for you!

For the rest of us, TSA PreCheck can be a huge time (and stress!) saver during our visit to the airport.  A membership to TSA PreCheck means you won’t have to remove your toiletries or computer from your bag.  Or take off your jacket at security checkpoints.

And TSA PreCheck lines are often (but not always!) much shorter than the regular security lines.
