1. Save 30% on Delta Award Seats to Europe
Via View From the Wing, folks with Delta elite status or an AMEX Delta card (like the AMEX Delta Gold, Platinum, or Reserve cards) have access to a 2-day award sale for 30% off award flights to Europe.
You can get a round-trip coach award seat to certain European cities for 42,000 Delta miles. And some Business Class seats are on sale for 87,500 Delta miles round-trip.
To get the deal, you must book your seat by tomorrow, February 18, 2016. There are other conditions to keep in mind:
- You must travel between March 4, 2016, and May 31, 2016
- You must stay at least 7 days in Europe
- All seats require 14-day advance purchase
And, there are blackout dates on several routes.
In the past, Delta has opened up the sale to everyone after the pre-sale is over. So it’s worth checking to see where you can go in Europe with fewer miles!
If you need more Delta miles, remember you can transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Delta instantly at a 1:1 ratio.
2. Earn 8,000 Points After 2 Stays With Choice Hotels (Enough for a Free Night!)
Link: Choice Hotels 8,000 Point Promotion (Registration Required)
When you register for the new Choice Hotels promotion, you’ll earn 8,000 Choice points after you stay twice at Choice Hotels between March 3, 2016, and May 5, 2016. 8,000 Choice points is enough for a free night at lots of Choice Hotels, like the Comfort Inn & Suites in Vancouver.
Choice Hotels ran a very similar promotion last spring.
To take part, you must maintain a US or Canadian address. And only rooms booked online through the Choice Hotels website, over the phone at 800-424-6423, or through their Apple or Android mobile apps are eligible to earn bonus points.
Note: Be sure the earning preferences on your Choice Privileges account are set to points and NOT miles, otherwise you won’t earn the bonus points.
You can use the points however you wish – you could save them for a longer trip or an award stay at a higher category hotel. This is an easy way to earn bonus points if you have Choice hotel stays coming up!
3. Get 700 Southwest Points for Free With a QuickBooks Trial
But, you get a 1-month trial for free. Some folks say you don’t have to enter your credit card details, but it asked me for mine (so don’t forget to cancel before the trial is up!).
4. You Can Still Get 80,000 Points With the Chase IHG Card
Great news! It’s still possible to earn 80,000 IHG points when you sign-up for the Chase IHG card and meet the minimum spending requirements. There are a few ways to get the offer.
You can try to make a test booking on the IHG website. Some folks report seeing an offer for 80,000 IHG points and a $50 statement credit. But your offer may be different.
If you recently applied for the regular offer for 60,000 IHG points and a $50 statement credit, you could ask Chase to match you to the 80,000 point offer.
