Earn extra miles with American Airlines Tailwind – for a fee [Targeted]

American Airlines is offering a targeted promotion to pay a fee to earn twice as many redeemable base miles on domestic airfare for one year. This is targeted, but I’ve seen reports of a fee ranging from $59.99 to $79.99 (plus tax) to register for this promotion. While the idea of paying to participate in a loyalty promotion seems kind of nutty to me,...

Why you might want to book Atlantis while you can (via Caesars Diamond status)

Back in 2019, I wrote about hopping on the status-match-go-round and we’ve updated that post a couple of times since publication. It is once again time to match status back up before the end of this month (more on why to do it again now even if your status was extended below; click here to match from Caesars Diamond back to Wyndham Diamond). Furthermore,...

Delta One business class Los Angeles to Santiago, Chile for $607 or $695

An email from Thrifty Traveler Premium just alerted me to an excellent business class fare sale from Los Angeles to Santiago, Chile (first reported at Flyertalk) that is valid from February to May. While that is sooner than I’m planning international travel, I recognize that some readers may be vaccinated or confident that they will be by May. Note...

No such thing as a free upgrade

On this week’s episode of Frequent Miler on the Air, Greg and I discuss the impending challenge(s) I face thanks to him Passing the GUC. This will either turn out to be an amazing guys trip / vacation or a great lesson in being careful what you wish for; either way, I look forward to the wins that come via discoveries along the way. This week we also...

10% back on Viator, but Capital One Offers have otherwise declined

I first wrote about Capital One offers a couple of months ago. For clarity, this is not Capital One shopping (which is available for anyone regardless of whether or not you have a Capital One card; Stephen covered the shopping portal here). Rather, Capital One offers are available for select cardholders (you see these offers when logged in to your account...

Uber Eats Promos: GO15JAN, GOTENJAN, 15OFF2021 For $10/$15 Off $20/$25

Uber Eats is out with new promotions, the latest of which are included at the top of the list below.  Most of these are targeted offers, but it’s worth trying to enter the promo codes in the app because they sometimes work even if you didn’t receive an email or notification about it.  Log into your account and click Account > Promotions > Enter...

Bet you didn’t know: Chase cardholders get half off Warriors gear (and other discounts)

The Chase Center is the home of the Golden State Warriors, so it surely comes as no surprise to you that the phone number on the back of your Chase credit or debit card acts as a promo code to get you up to 50% off on Golden State Warriors gear, right? Ok, so perhaps it is a surprise. It sure was to me. File this under “only useful in the most niche...

Passing the GUC: Greg gives global upgrades to Nick… with a catch

Alright Nick.  You asked for it and here it is: Two Global Upgrade Certificates (GUCs) just for you.  But there’s a catch.  You have to take me with you. A snapshot from a possible future. Greg reaches for the attendant call button as Nick leans over from his Delta One Suite. We wear the same shirt… just because. Clowns to the left of me! Jokers...
