I’m off to the Chicago Seminars this morning! Be sure to stop by and say hi if you are, too. I’ve got a plan to start working on the trip report again en route, so look forward to some stories about our stay in Singapore… And with that, here are some of this week’s top deals:
Double Elevate Points on Virgin America – View from the Wing
Gary shares a current promotion for double Elevate points when you fly any Virgin America route on the West Coast between now and November 15. Registration is required.
50% Bonus on Purchased Elevate Points – The Points Guy
If you don’t want to fly, you could just buy the points you need. But it’s not the greatest deal for use with Virgin America since they have a fixed-value award chart. Instead, TPG recommends use on parter carriers, like Virgin Atlantic.
Chance to win 80K Miles & More – Live from a Lounge
AJ shares an opportunity to win a huge bonus. However, it’s only open to customers based in Asia opening a new Miles & More account with Lufthansa.
New Points Break List from Priority Club – Mommy Points
These tend to go quickly, but they are a great deal. At regular intervals Priority Club will publish a list of Points Break hotels that can be booked for as low as 5,000 points per night. Usually it’s a bunch of Holiday Inns (normally 15,000 per night), but there are the odd luxury properties, too.
Possible $100 Statement Credit with Hyatt Visa – Million Mile Secrets
If you want to bypass the bloggers’ affiliate links, Daraius points out a way to get a statement credit on a new application for the Hyatt Visa from Chase. The trick? You have to be logged out while pretending to make a new reservation. I think this is a great card, well worth the annual fee because of the free night each year, and feature it on my list of hotel credit cards.
Win 50K SPG Starpoints – One Mile at a Time
Lucky gives away a lot of these points, and now he’s giving away 50K more. Why? I’m not quite sure this time, but you still have a week left to enter!
New Diamond Benefits at Hyatt Regency Waikiki – Miles from Blighty
I was glad to see how generous these new elite benefits are, everything from waived fees to discounts and additional welcome amenities. I prefer the north shore of Oahu, a stop here (at least to show Megan what a zoo Waikiki can be) seems worthwhile.
100 Free Amtrak Points – View from the Wing
For those who collect anything and everything, Amtrak will give you 100 points just for liking their Facebook page. Don’t forget, you can transfer as few as 3,000 points over from Ultimate Rewards for regional routes like the Cascade Express to Vancouver, BC.
25% Off from Radisson – Deals We Like
There’s still one day left (TODAY!) to save 25% off from Radisson’s limited-time sale. You must stay by October 31.
Double Miles with Several Airlines from Hilton HHonors – Loyalty Traveler
Hilton has a great program for earning airline miles with each stay, and for a limited time they’re doubling the number of miles with select partners. Note that there is a limited list of participating properties.
1,000 US Airways Miles Each Night with Conrad – Deals We Like
In addition, Conrad, one of Hilton’s brands, is offering 1,000 US Airways miles every night for stays through the end of this year.
