Better late than never, but never late is better. Limited time offers are most often the only ones really worth cashing in on. Whether you’re buying points, miles, vacations or shoes, the best simply don’t last. Rather than flood your blog feeds with individual posts, I thought I would highlight some of the most important deals in the US and abroad expiring tomorrow, that you should act on today. Hedge your hotel bets, get a free business class flight or simply find a great vacation, I’ve got you covered.
Everyone loves a cheap flight. If you’ve been paying attention on my tips to find amazing flight deals every day, these are some simply amazing deals which can be well worth blowing a few points and miles to position yourself. If you’re lucky enough to simply be in one of these cities, don’t hesitate, don’t think and don’t be cheap, take me with you. Though these won’t necessarily expire tomorrow, deals like this don’t stick around. Follow the links and book away. Hooray!
IHG Hotels Points Bonus:
Five stars is better than four, especially when you pay less for five than you would for four. If you have a vacation coming up you can hedge your hotel costs by buying points at a discount and using them on your next trip. IHG currently has a 100% bonus on their hotel points, allowing you to buy points with real value. In the current promotion you can purchase 60,000 points for $690, netting you 120,000 points after the bonus. The most expensive IHG hotel rooms, including Intercontinental properties in major cities, cost no more than 50,000 points per night. In buying the points you are able to lock in at least two nights at the most expensive properties which are never under $450 a night, usually far more. It’s been pointed out that at properties such as the Intercontinental Park Lane in London, which go for £450 per night and well beyond, this is a steal of a deal allowing you to stay for less than $289 per night when using your remaining 20,000 points towards the third night. Worth a look. Oh and if you have a significant other or travel buddy they could do the same making 6 nights at a real bargain!
Delta American Express Card
When you can get a one way international ticket in flat bed business class for signing up for one card and doing some spending, it’s often worth a go. I think Delta Skymiles still have great uses on partners including Virgin Atlantic, Korean Airlines, Virgin Australia, Air France and Alitalia and 62,500 miles (what you’ll have after spending) is exactly enough for one way in business class from the US to Europe or South America. I’ve written extensively about my passion for flying one way in cheap economy paid tickets and the other way in business class to spice things up. Take a look at the Delta Platinum Amex offering 60,000 points, or for those who travel less, the Gold Delta Amex offering 50,000 Points. You’ll need to spend $2,000 in three months, which following these tips should be easy. If that’s something you’re comfortable with, get the application in today and fly in style from spending money on things like your cellphone, car insurance and all the other things you can’t live without. If you ask me, that makes it free.
When the going gets good get the credit card out and make things happen. Afterwards, grab a nice bramble like the one pictured above and celebrate. There simply aren’t enough words to describe the effects of travel. Using your insider knowledge (from this blog of course) to snag a five star hotel over a four star, business class over coach or just a great trip for less is what it’s all about.
