Can you tell that we’re right in the midst of shoulder season? There are all kinds of promos coming through every day. Here are recent ones I’ve seen, in no particular order:
IHG Rewards Club is featuring a bonus on purchased points this month. The bonus depends on how many points you’re purchasing. I’ve got a nice stash of points at the moment so I’ll sit this one out.
Club Carlson is having a sale at select hotels when you book by this Friday, October 10 and stay on select dates through the end of the month. Talk about restrictions! Since I just returned from vacation I won’t take advantage of this either.
I’m not an aviation geek by any means but one of the few planes I can recognize on sight is the Airbus A380, since it’s a full-length double-decker. Air France is starting a new route, Miami to Paris (CDG), on December 1st. Remember Air France is part of SkyTeam which means you can use Delta miles on this flight. Sadly, Delta will not allow you access to La Premiere (first class) and if you book before the end of the year a one-way ticket will cost as much as a round-trip. However, Air France’s Flying Blue program is a transfer partner of both Starwood and Amex Membership Rewards, so that’s the way to book first class on the new bird.
And finally, if you hold one of the Hilton co-branded credit cards (Amex has two, Citibank has one) you should have received this offer via email. The link in the mail is specific for each recipient but you can buy or give Hilton HHonors points until October 22 and get a bonus, depending on how many points you buy or give. Might be a nice way to top off your account if you’re just a little short.
