Mark – Southwest Promotion currently for Sears @ 15pts per dollar is a good deal to rack up on southwest points through Ultimate Rewards.
Yesterday’s Winner of the 2500 AAdvantage® miles is Dan from ICT. “Do something good. Donate to Miles for the Cure (http://joinus.aa.com/miles-for-the-cure) which is part of the Susan B Komen foundation for breast cancer. You can get 10 miles for every dollar you donate, so if you donate $100, you’ll get 1000 miles. Not bad when you consider that if you purchase miles from AA directly it would run close to $65 for 1000 miles (after $30 per transaction charge and taxes). So it’s only $35 more, but you’re helping others.”. Dan this is a great way to help out the Komen foundation and to rack up some miles too. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you your 2,500 miles.
Thanks to everyone that submitted a deal / tip, keep them coming.
IHG® Rewards Club Select Credit Card
- Annual Fee: $49 fee waived for the first year
- Foreign Fees: No
- Card Type: Hotel
The IHG Rewards Club Visa is often cited as one of the most underrated hotel credit cards, with good reason. The official offer is for 70,000 points after $1,000 spent within three months, with the first year’s fee waived. The card comes with an annual free night certificate that can be used at any IHG property, including Intercontinental hotels - making this certificate worth upwards of 50,000 points. This is far more generous than some other hotel cards, which limit the categories in which free night certificates can be redeemed.
Cardholders earn 5 points per dollar at IHG hotels; 2 points per dollar at gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants; 1 point per dollar everywhere else. Moreover, you’ll get a 10% rebate on award redemptions, up to 100,000 points per year. The card also comes with Platinum status, though that doesn’t get you much with IHG. Still, this is a fantastic card to have in your wallet, with benefits that far outweigh the already low $49 annual fee.
- Earn 70,000 bonus points after you spend $1,000 in the first 3 months of account opening

- Earn 2 points per $1 spent on purchases at gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants
