What's New?

I will attempt to list all new additions and changes on this web site here for at least the last three months or so. (But no guarantee that I won't forget to list a few.) So go ahead and use your miles to take that three month trip around the world. You can catch up when you return. (Well, at least some of the offers will still be around.)

To easily find an offer on the indicated page, go to that page, click anywhere on it once (important), then do a word search on an obvious key word for the item.

These listings are by no means intended to completely describe the offer. Always read my writeup on each offer on the page listed, plus all of the terms and conditions of the offer, before you accept it.

Polite comments, notices of errors, dead links, new ideas, etc, would be most appreciated. Click here.

1/20/2022 Registration and Other Bonuses Join China Air's miles program and earn 1,000 miles. This seems to be a response to the bonus offered by Taiwan's other airline, Eva Air. China Air is a member of Skyteam . When I flew on it from San Francisco to Hanoi several years ago (using Delta Airlines miles and this trick), it had an excellent business class seat and service.
1/20/2022 Credit Cards 20% bonus though February 15, 2022, for transferring American Express Membership Rewards points to Aeromexico.
1/19/20212 Buying Stuff Alaska Airlines shopping portal bonus through January 28, 2021: Spend $100 to earn 400 bonus miles. Spend $300 to earn 1,200 bonus miles.

Compare to the bonues of other airline shopping portals offer. Also, compare to the offers from the cash back portals.

1/13/2022 Credit Cards I fixed the link to the United Airline business credit card. Still 75K + 75K.
1/12/2022 Finance Bask Bank still offers 5,000 Ameridan Airlines miles for opening an account with a minimum of $1,000 and maintaining at least that amount for 90 days. Now says this offer ends June 30, 2022. Other bonuses are still online, but with a 2020 expiration date. Ask. Accounts earn 1 mile per $1 deposited per year, but paid monthly. A 1099 form will be issued for the value of the miles. Last I looked they say that value is 0.42 cent/mile. Compare to interest rates you can find elsewhere from online banks. For example, currently (January 12, 2022) I am getting 0.8% from Marcus Bank, but its full value will be reported on the 1099. I keep $20 in my account and am paid 2 miles/month. This is a very easy way to keep my AA account from expiring. (Last I looked, that AA account requires at least one activity every 18 months to avoid losing all the miles in it.)
1/12/2022 Registration and Other Bonuses Who Knew You Could Earn 50,000 Bonvoy Points In Your Pajamas?. It works by participating in a virtual presentation of the Marriott Vacation Club.

1/9/2022 Credit Cards The Alaska Airlines personal credit card offer is now 60,000 miles. I show you how to find a link to same plus a $100 statement credit.

Alaska has one of my favorite miles programs. It has an abundance of partners, and all tickets are one way and allow a stopover. This means unlimited open jaw trips with two stopovers. For example, I used miles to do a trip from San Francisco to Glacier Bay in Alaska, then return with a two week stopover at Juneau. I used that stopover to cruise the Southeast Alaska waters, including the real inside passage, with UnCruise, my favorite small ship cruise company. You may read about this spectacular cruise here (and get a discount for it). Click on Alaska in the menu to the left.

1/5/2022 Registration and Other Bonuses Join Eva Air's miles program to earn 500 miles for free. Then fill in your data to earn another 500 miles. The airline is the second largest Taiwanese airline (after China Airlines). It is a member of the Star Alliance.

1/3/2022 Other Programs I Like The new member bonus for Delta's Rewards Network (iDine) program was extended to January 6, and Marriot's Eat Around Town program to June 30, 2022. Compare to all the other dining programs. You can sign up for more than one if you use different credit cards for each.

Everyone who might dine at a restaurant (even takeout) should register for one or more dining programs. The restaurants advertise their membership in the program only on iDine's website. You won't see it on the restaurant's website or on its door. So you might get a pleasant surprise.

So I looked in my account and found 3 free nights I didn't know I had. One was to expire tomorrow, and another in 3 days. I called and easily converted the first one to 25K points. It took the rep 5 minutes to get permission to convert the second one. I have a year to use the third one, which I may do once Covid gets solved.
