Even better, you can save as much as 50% on award flights to Europe.

3. $30 Off Your 1st Uber Ride for a Limited Time!
You can now save $30 on your 1st ride when you use my referral link!
Because Uber is considered travel, you get 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points when you use your Chase Sapphire Preferred card. Or you can get 2.2% back when you use your Barclay Arrival Plus card ($25 minimum travel redemption).
4. Get up to 30,000 Bonus Miles and a 10% Discount When You Buy US Airways & American Airlines Miles
You get bonus miles based on how many miles you buy:
- 20,000 to 39,000 miles gets 7,000 bonus miles
- 40,000 to 59,000 miles gets 15,000 bonus miles
- 60,000 to 74,000 miles gets 23,000 bonus miles
- 75,000 to 100,000 miles gets 30,000 bonus miles
When you combine these 2 offers, you buy miles for as little as 2.07 cents per mile. We have seen better deals in the past. But this is still a good deal for folks who need a few more miles to book an award flight.
However, buying US Airways or American Airlines miles does NOT count as a travel purchase because it’s processed through Points.com.
So you will NOT get extra points using your Chase Sapphire Preferred, US Airways, Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ Mastercard®, Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive World Elite™ Mastercard®, Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express or Barclay Arrival Plus card.
But as always, you get 2X Arrival points on all purchases using your Barclay Arrival Plus.
