More of a luxury than a frugal stay, you can stay at the Park Hyatt in Chicago from $256/night which is 30% savings off the normal rate. If you haven’t joined JetSetter yet, you can do so here and we’ll both get $25 towards a purchase.
Lucky has a great post detailing US Airways off-peak awards, which can get you to Europe in Business class for as little as 55,000 miles if you’re a US Airways cardholder!

John S – BOS – “You can get up to 2,450 UR points for free by utilizing Staples’ Easy Rebates program that is offering software for free after rebate. It is incredible easy as you just submit it online through their rebate center and a check will arrive in the mail! source: http://bit.ly/Hz4KT7″
Yesterday’s Winner of the 2500 AAdvantage® miles is Eddy with his tip “You can currently fly SFO-DWF-AUS roundtrip for around $171 all in on select dates. This is a great deal once you factor in the DEQ11 promotion for double EQM’s (valid only for AAdvantage members with an address on file in California, Texas, or Illinois)”. While this deal is now expired, it was a great offer out there yesterday. Eddy, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you your prize.
Thanks to everyone that submitted a deal / tip, keep them coming.
