A big thanks to everyone for sending me tips and links via email and in the comments! Here are a few tips which I’ve not written about previously.
1. Free Accor A-Club Gold Status
JC writes in about free Accor Hotel A-club Gold status when you use promotion code “AMEXSING10” while registering for an Accor account.
Priority Club Insider also wrote about this. Gold status doesn’t get you much, but you may be able to status match it to other hotels’ entry level status.
2. Restaurant.com 80% off coupon
deltagoldflyer writes in that using “FALL” will get you 80% off on a restaurant.com coupon.
Remember to register for the US Air Grand Slam before buying the Restaurant.com certificate!
There is also a way to earn $5 cash back via this post on Milepoint, but you need $20 in cash back to get a cash back payment.
3. Transfer Continental miles to Amtrak
Jose M lets us know about a Slickdeals thread on converting Continental miles to Amtrak in a 1:1 ratio.
This may make sense for some since you can redeem 3,000 Amtrak points for ~$100 1-way tickets in the Northeast corridor.
Amtrak also has a 50% bonus on buying points which gets over on Friday.
