There are just two days left in the month, so here are some quick reminders of promos coming to a close (or starting) as the calendar turns another page to June.

US Airways Buy Miles with 100% Bonus:

This is a tiered promo and you only get the full 100% bonus if you purchase 30,000 – 50,000 miles.  If you do, the price per mile comes in at just under 1.9 cents per mile.  I’m not speculatively buying miles at this price, but it is a good price to top off to an award threshold.  This promo ends on May 31st.

Amex Membership Rewards Transfer Bonus to British Airways:

The 35% transfer bonus from Membership Rewards to British Airways runs until June 7th, but it is time to make decisions about whether or not this promo makes sense for you so that you aren’t left making an impulsive decision on the last day.

Hyatt Promo Ends:

May 31st marks the end of the Hyatt More Possibilities promo that ran from March 1 – May 31 where you earned 3,000 bonus points after every third eligible night – up to 45,000 total points.

Shopping Portal Updates:

Some of the payouts in shopping portals reset each month (though some happen at various dates within the month), but if you see one you like and you are about to make a purchase you might as well do it before the end of the month.  You can revisit some of my May favorites in this post, and here are a few additional higher than average payouts that are currently available. 

United MileagePlus Shopping:

JCP: 8 miles per dollar through 6/3
UnderArmour: 12 miles per dollar through 5/28
Nordstrom: 9 miles per dollar through 5/31
Gap: 6 miles per dollar through 5/31
iTunes: 4 miles per dollar through 5/29

AAdvantage Shopping:

JCP: 12 miles per dollar
Living Social: 9 miles per dollar

Daily Getaways Coming Back in June:

Mark your calendars if you like Daily Getaways as the deals are getting previewed on June 3rd, and go on sale beginning June 10th.  Read more about these deals here.  They are a way to rack up some points and travel deals at a good discount…though last year quantities were pretty limited.  Get your Amex cards ready as they offer a 10% discount!  I will be covering all of the deals just like I did last year.

If you can think of some other promos ending at the end of May please add them in the comments section!
