Rewarding Recap: New PC Promos, 100 Free Miles, and Cheap US Miles

Halloween is coming up. I think my candy days are behind me, but I was known for operating a little candy stock exchange the day after Halloween back when I was little. Every piece had its price, and somehow I always ended up with all the chocolate bars and my little siblings with all the Necco wafers. As it should be, right? 😉 Check out this chart to learn which candy ranks where.

7,500 Club Carlson Points through Avis – The Points Guy

Avis is offering a 25% discount and 7,500 Gold points to Club Carlson members through December 31. You must book a rental of 3 days or longer to qualify, and many international locations are also participating.

1,000 AAdvantage Miles from Alamo and Others – AAdvantageGeek

If you’d rather earn airline miles (and I would), then AAdvantageGeek has several different rental car promotions to help you. The best is from Alamo, which is offering 1,000 bonus miles and up to a 30% discount. Again, you need a rental of 3 days or longer before December 31.

Buy 60K Club Carlson Points for $280 – Loyalty Traveler

Now through November 10, Ric has details on an offer from Club Carlson to buy Gold points for $7 per 1,000. I’m not sure it’s the best deal. 50,000 points is enough for one night at a Radisson Blu hotel, but I’ve also seen such hotels sell for under $200 with standard rates. Use this if you need to top off your account for a planned award.

10% off Brussels Airlines – Lufthansa Flyer

This coupon is only good for intra-Europe or Europe-Africa travel, but it’s really easy to get just by signing up for a MyBrusselsAirline account. If you think you might need a short hop in the future, head on over.

New List of Priority Club Promotions – Loyalty Lobby

I really should pay closer attention to these lists. My motto is, always register even if you don’t think you’ll stay at a Priority Club hotel. They’re everywhere, and when I have one of those last-minute stays and a Hyatt or Starwood hotel isn’t nearby, it’s usually where I end up. Make sure you get all the points you’re entitled to, because I’ve certainly done a bad job of that in the past.

1,000-3,000 Bonus Avios with Hilton – Loyalty Traveler

Ric has another offer for between 1,000 and 3,000 Avios points when you stay one night with Hilton before December 31. You must be a British Airways Executive Club member to qualify, and unfortunately it’s based on status level. But it’s still a nice holiday gesture.

3,000 AAdvantage Miles for Joining Admirals Club – AAdvantageGeek

AAdvantageGeek has the inside scoop on an upcoming promotion, starting in November, to earn 3,000 bonus miles when you sign up to join the Admirals Club. I’m not a huge fan of joining airline clubs outright. I think you should get a card that comes with access and other benefits. But for those considering it, wait just a few days more.

100 Free Miles to Register with Points Hound – Loyalty Lobby

This is an interesting concept: go through the Points Hound booking portal and get free airline miles instead of cash back when you book your next hotel. I’m not sure if it’s the best deal yet or not, but they’ll give you 100 free miles just to sign up and take a look.

Get 50K US Airways Miles for $567.50 – Points, Miles, & Martinis

Time is running out. Take advantage of the US Airways transfer bonus to get 50,000 US Airways Dividend Miles for only $567.50 by October 31. (You need to have 50K to start, too.) Remember, you only need 110,000 for two business class tickets to Europe during the off-season if you have a US Airways MasterCard.

Deceptive Deals: $199 for Two Nights at Hyatt
20% off Virgin America and Double Elevate Points
  • lovetofly

    “Get 100K US Airways for $567.50″ is misleading – you are buying 50K “new miles” for $567.50. 100K miles for $567.50 would be a steal.

      You’re correct. I’ll fix it.
