Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.Update: One or more card offers in this post are no longer available. Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers.
1. 1,000 Southwest Points for Filing Your Taxes
You can earn 1,000 Southwest points when you buy TurboTax through the Southwest Rapid Rewards Shopping mall and file your federal taxes by April 15, 2015.
This is a great way to get extra Southwest points because you have to file your taxes anyway. (Unless you’re Willie Nelson…)
2. 3,000 United Airlines Miles for Linking & Using Softcard App
I wrote about this offer before, but if you missed it, you can earn 3,000 United Airlines miles when you link and pay with your UnitedPlus Explorer card through the Softcard app by February 28, 2015.
The app isn’t available for iPhones yet though. Drat!
3. 2X Delta Airlines Miles for IHG StaysPoints, Miles, and Martinis reports that you can get 2X Delta Airlines miles (up to 10,000 bonus miles) when you stay at IHG hotels through April 30, 2015.
You have to register before your 1st stay AND you have to choose miles as your earning preference in your IHG profile.
4. 1,000 Hilton Points and 3X Eva Air Miles
Via Loyalty Lobby, you can get 1,000 Hilton points when you sign-up for Hilton’s loyalty program and stay 1 night by March 31, 2015.
You’ll also get 3X Eva Air miles. But I suspect most folks will be more interested in the easy Hilton points you get after your stay. 🙂
Although it’s only for those who do NOT already have a Hilton loyalty account. So this might be a way to slowly introduce a friend or family member to our hobby!
I love writing these News You Can Use posts because it’s a great reminder of all the ways you can earn miles and points!
