I gave you guys a break, and I’ve been busy, but it’s time for one of these again…
Win 50,000 Marriott Rewards Points – Million Mile Secrets
Daraius is giving away 50,000 Marriott Rewards points in conjunction with another contest on Marriott’s Facebook page. Learn more about how to win one of several prizes (each worth a few thousand dollars) and then share your contest results on MMS to get a chance at a 50,000 point sweepstakes.
Win 50,000 AA Miles and a New Orleans Vacation – AAdvantageGeek
AAdvantageGeek shared a few days ago a new contest opportunity from American’s in-flight magazine for 50,000 AA miles and a free trip to New Orleans. The best part about this prize? You get to stay at the Royal Sonesta Hotel with a reserved table at the Irvin Mayfield Jazz Playhouse! On my last trip to New Orleans, the crowds really got to me, and this hotel was an amazing respite. Irvin Mayfield’s was also where I had my first (and so far best) Sazerac, one of my new favorite drinks. I highly recommend you stop by even if you don’t win the prize.
SPG Fall Promotion Announced – Mommy Points
Get 2X points on stays of 1-2 nights and 3X points on stays of 3+ nights. Clearly Starwood is trying to avoid the risks of rewarding short stays (just like Hyatt’s fall promo is based on the number of nights, not the number of stays). Like usual, there are a lot of non-participating hotels, but at least you can also earn bonuses for booking directly with SPG. This promotion runs from October 1st to December 20th.
Hyatt 48-Hour Sale Ends Soon – Loyalty Traveler
I didn’t share this earlier because I was revising a manuscript for resubmission, but you still have a few hours left to get in on the recent 48-hour sale from Hyatt. Unfortunately they haven’t been listing the applicable hotels in recent sales of this type, and I haven’t been able to find any that work for me and my travel dates. Expires tonight (Wednesday) at 11:59 PM CDT.
Improved 25K Sign-Up Bonus for Virgin America CC – Frequently Flying
At 15K points previously, this was probably the worst airline card offer I had listed on my blog (see my airline credit cards page for the rest of the list). So it’s good to see that it’s temporarily improved to 25K points through the rest of August. I’ll be updating this link and some other links on my pages later tonight.
Dozens of Priority Club Bonus Offers – New Girl in the Air
She’s kindly aggregated a list of all these different bonus offers for extra points on your next stay at a Priority Club hotel. There is probably no other large chain so generous with its points and promotions, although I still like my Hyatt and Starwood stays Be sure to check out this post if you have any upcoming trips at a Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, or InterContinental Hotel. Also don’t forget this especially generous offer for 3,000 points on your next stay, courtesy of Heels First Travel.
Earn 4X American Airlines Miles with Hertz – Points, Miles, & Martinis
Learn about a new promotion through November 30th that will let you earn 4X AA miles per dollar spent on your next Hertz rental.
Earn 1,200 Southwest Points from $100 Marriott Gift Cards – Loyalty Traveler
For a limited time through November 30th, Ric shows how you can earn 1,200 Rapid Rewards points from Southwest Airlines for every $100 Marriott gift card purchased. This is the best of both worlds! If you’re going to stay at a hotel, you might as well earn some free miles to go with it.
