I shared the news that JetBlue is running daily deals through December 16, 2016. Every day, at 1:00 pm Eastern Time, they’ll announce a new deal, like yesterday’s $20 flights between select cities.
Now, the details of the deals have been leaked. Via Reddit, we now know what JetBlue will offer each day through their “A December to Adventure” promotion!
We’ll see deals like $54 one-way flights to Cuba, 4X JetBlue bonus points, $30 one-way flights to tropical destinations, and more!

Planning a Memorial Day trip next year? Southwest has opened their schedule for flights through June 2, 2017.
So you can now book paid and award tickets for late spring trips! This is a terrific opportunity for a quick getaway before the peak summer travel season.
Southwest is my favorite deal in travel, because everyone gets 2 free checked bags, there aren’t any change or cancellation fees, and a companion can travel with you for almost free if you have the Southwest Companion Pass.

I was excited to be approved for the limited-time AMEX Platinum Business Card offer.
Between the 100,000 point sign-up bonus and points from the minimum spending requirement, I earned more than 115,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points. That’s almost triple the amount you’d normally earn with The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN!
These points are worth at least $2,300 in paid airfare because of the card’s Pay With Points perk. So it’s a fantastic card for folks looking to get Big Travel!
And this is an AMEX small business card. So it does NOT count toward card limits for new Chase applications!

If you collect Alaska Airlines or Hawaiian Airlines miles, there’s a new way to keep your miles from expiring with no effort! Frequent Flyer is an app for iOS or Android that earns you points in return for sharing your location. Then, you can redeem them for miles!
However, it can take 5+ months to earn 100 miles.
You can also complete surveys or refer your friends to speed up the process. If you don’t mind having the app on your phone, it’s an easy way to reset the clock and keep your miles active without flying.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Juli, commented:
I have two American Airlines credit cards, the Citi® / AAdvantage®
Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard® and Barclaycard AAdvantage Aviator Red MasterCard. Are both of these cards worth keeping?
Great question, Juli!
The 2 cards have very similar perks. You get bonus miles on American Airlines purchases, a free checked bag, and a 10% rebate when you redeem miles for award flights.
Because these 2 cards have an annual fee and similar benefits, it’s probably not worth keeping both. The only exception is if Juli plans to spend a lot on the cards to earn American Airlines elite status.
But before Juli cancels one of the cards, she should consider the application rules for each bank. This can make it easier to earn more American Airlines miles with future sign-up bonuses!
There’s a Strategy for Folks Deciding Between Which American Airlines Card to Keep in Their Wallets!
I’ll explain which American Airlines credit card Juli should keep!
