Holy moly: Iberia is honoring it. 90K Avios now ~$260, and it’s for real

Last night, we published a post about what I thought would be the absolute deal of the year if it were honored — though I was admittedly cautious in warning readers that it might not be honored as written beause it just seemed too generous. It turns out Iberia is going to honor this promotion. If you got in last night at $18 per flight, congrats — the holidays came early for you. If you did…

Crazy: 90,000 Avios for $183 (too good to last)

Update: Iberia is honoring this. See our follow-up post: Holy moly: Iberia is honoring it. 90K Avios now ~$260, and it’s for real. This post includes some fares that are no longer available, but many are still available from around $30 one-way. German blog You Have Been Upgraded has written about an incredible promotion being offered by Iberia. I’ll note at the outset that this one is far too generous to last the way it is written. I…

Aeroplan newest transfer partner for Arrival Premier

amex offers

Barclays has added a new transfer partner for the Arrival Premier: Aeroplan. This is an interesting addition, and probably not in the way that Barclays would have hoped. Considering the fact that Aeroplan will cease to be the loyalty program of Air Canada in 2020, and there are cards that earn more Aeroplan miles with a lower fee on the market, adding Aeroplan as a transfer partner isn’t much of an improvement. However, on the bright…

Which airlines are best for Marriott Travel Packages?

Yesterday, Greg wrote about the potential for a huge win with Marriott Travel Packages. Of course, we don’t know that there will be a huge win — it’s just potential. Still, I know many readers are probably looking at these packages and wondering which airlines are the best transfer partners. While United offers the most miles at 132K with the largest (best-value) packages, they don’t necessarily offer the best value in terms of award pricing.…

Potential huge win with Marriott Travel Packages before August

Marriott travel packages are awards in which you exchange Marriott Rewards points for airline miles plus a 7 night stay certificate (or a 5 night certificate for timeshare owners).  You do not have to book your actual stay right away.  You have a year to do so, and Marriott Rewards has been very generous about extending the validity of the certificate for another year when asked.  So, many of us will have 7 night certificates…

Easy points & profit: Save on Visa Gift Cards at Safeway (Just4U coupons)

Safeway (and presumably affiliates like Vons, Albertsons, Randalls, etc) is offering a Just4U coupon good for savings on Visa Gift Cards through June 30th. While the coupon terms state that it can be used once per transaction, it is more likely that this will be valid for a single use per customer. Still, it might be worth testing if you’re going shopping and you have a card that earns one of the Best category bonuses at grocery stores. The…
