There are some more great deals out there! I’m thinking every day may be too much, but maybe every other day? Feel free to send in your suggestions if you’d like me to add them to the list. Remember, we’re sticking to free points/miles and discounts only.
10,000 Miles & More Sweepstakes – Lufthansa Flyer
To celebrate his one year blogiversary, Lufthansa Flyer is giving away 10,000 Miles & More miles. You get 4 chances to enter, so head over for more details (really easy entry!).
50,000 Marriott Points Sweepstakes – Loyalty Traveler
Ric shares yet another blog, My Itchy Travel Feet, giving away a boatload of Marriott points. I already mentioned Million Mile Secrets on Wednesday. So head over there in a hurry and learn how to win!
1,000 Delta SkyMiles for EVERY SEGMENT! – Points, Miles & Martinis
The Weekly Flyer shares a great deal good through the rest of the year. You can get a bonus 1,000 SkyMiles on every segment flown with Delta. If you ever needed an excuse to become a mileage runner, packing on extra detours to pad your balance, this is it. Sure, it’s not Medallion Qualifying miles, but this still means an easy 2,000-6,000 miles per roundtrip.
500 Priority Club Points for Shopping Emails – View from the Wing
People got in trouble a few weeks ago for downloading the Priority Club shopping toolbar over and over and over. Well, now you have a new opportunity to get 500 points (ONCE!) by agreeing to receive email newsletters from PC’s international shopping portal.
Several Targeted Hilton, Delta, and Starwood Promotions – Deals We Like
None of these quite matched my travel patterns, but if you expect to be using any of these travel companies in the near future, particularly Hilton, you should go check if you might have been selected for some of these offers. Even if you don’t remember receiving an email, it might have been misdirected and could end up working for you anyway.
1,800 Southwest Points for Each National Rental – New Girl in the Air
I mentioned the recent One-Two-Free deal from National Car Rental earlier this week. If you don’t want free rentals, National is celebrating its new partnership with Southwest Airlines by providing 1,800 free Rapid Rewards points for each rental. That’s a lot. Usually you see offers for 250-750 miles per rental, so consider this an opportunity if you’ll be renting a car between now and November 15.
Win a Free Trip to Spain – Lufthansa Flyer
I absolutely loved my trip to Spain last year with my sister. Now Megan is still fuming at me for going without her, so I’m sure I’ll have to go again next summer. Oh, darn! I can’t enter this contest because it’s for European residents only, but rather than risk turning this newsletter into a whole string of contest entries, there is already an entire forum on FlyerTalk that you can add to your RSS reader.
Get $10 for Starbucks Auto-Reload – Deals We Like
All you have to do is take your existing Starbucks gift card, link it to your iPhone (which is really quite cool, letting you pay with an on-screen barcode), and set up an auto-reload with Visa to get a free $10 credit. Deal ends TODAY! I presume you can always turn off the auto-reload once the credit posts. Also, I don’t know how many of you got this, but as a Starbucks Gold member I received an email telling me to register for the 12 Star Dash. Make 12 separate purchases from August 27 to September 9, earning 12 stars, and get a free $5 credit. My link was targeted, so search your junk mail.
Earn a Few Hundred Starpoints with Every Stay – Points, Miles, & Martinis
Nothing new to some of you, but The Weekly Flyer reminds us all to save the environment and get an extra 500-1,500 Starpoints per stay by letting housekeeping take a pass. Now really, do you need someone to pick up after you every single day? No. Not unless you’re as sloppy as my college roommate. Hopefully you (and he) have moved past that stage.
And just for fun, here’s a link to today’s Boston.com’s “The Big Picture” series on being in flight. Sort of. Hey, there are some planes in there… though I’m a big fan of #20.
