Win One of 1,000 Free JetBlue Flights if You Owe Taxes

JetBlue Giveaway.jpg

As I am sure you know, Tax Day is coming up next week, and I don’t care how many miles I may earn from paying what we may owe with a rewards earning credit card, I’d much prefer to skip that expense if that were a possibility. Since I know pretty much everyone else feels the same, you have to give JetBlue some props for creating a fun promotion out of an otherwise yucky part of life by giving away 1,000 free one-way…

Did You Win Hyatt Globalist Elite Status?

Hyatt Globalist United Club

Last week I launched the best giveaway we have had in quite a while as it was for roughly a year of top tier Hyatt Globalist elite status! Normally earning this new status would require 60 eligible nights in a calendar year at Hyatt properties, but this lucky winner will get it for free until February 28, 2018! Not to rub it in for those who didn’t win this time around, but the Hyatt Globalist status will confer with it: No resort…

Win Top Tier Hyatt Globalist Status!

Hyatt Globalist United Club

Earlier this month Hyatt launched their new World of Hyatt loyalty program, and for Hyatt elites the changes brought with them good and bad news, depending on your own situation. Those who were used to qualifying for top tier Hyatt Diamond status annually with 25 eligible one-night stays were met with a sack of bad news to the face as the new program requires 55 – 60 eligible nights per year to qualify or re-qualify for top tier Globalist status. Because…

Save on Upscale Hotels via Club1Hotels + $250 Credit Giveaway!


There are an untold number of websites available for making your hotel reservations, and most of them claim to be the best site to use. There is no one best site to use for all stays. However, there are some sites that are worth a look when you are shopping around for the cheapest hotel rate. Often times I book directly with the hotel chain in order to maximize discounts while still earning hotel points, elite status, etc. that you…

Did You Win Elite Status and 20,000 Hotel Points?

Untitled design (5)

Certain hotel loyalty programs, such as Choice Privileges, don’t get as much attention on the miles and points blogs as other programs. On the one hand that is sometimes warranted because of unfriendly policies or less than stellar properties, but on the other hand, there can still be value to be had from these programs. Along those lines, I was very happy when I learned that Choice Privileges eliminated the rule that points expire after a certain period of time even…

Choice Privileges Updates and Points Giveaway!


Choice Privileges is the loyalty program for Choice Hotels which includes Comfort Suites, Comfort Inn, Clarion, Ascend, and a few other budget minded hotel brands that you will often find scattered around the country and beyond. At over 6,300 properties around the world they are actually one of the largest hotel brands out there, even if they aren’t one of the fanciest. My parents regularly use Choice for their budget friendly National Parks themed trips, and we have used them…
