Living in the SF BAY AREA? I highly suggest you get a UNITED CHASE CREDIT CARD!

As we all know - San Francisco Airport is a major United Airlines Hub. Thus, lots of United flights to lots of places in the world leave from SFO every day. Wouldn't it be nice if your next trip to New York, Florida or Hawaii would be free?

Well it's time you do something about that! Owning a United Chase Credit Card is an absolute necessity in the Bay area in my opinion. The new Virgina America Credit Card won't hurt either but that's for another time! :)

If you do decide to get a United Credit Card, please let me know ( because United has a reward for referrals. You get all the bonuses of the card (30000 sign-up bonus, 3miles earned per dollar on United purchases, etc..) and I get 15000 miles. :)

Priority Club Promotion again...I'm doing it, so should you!!

Three Priority Club Partner Transactions Earns 6000 Bonus Points

The offer is up to 6000 bonus points: 1000 for the first partner, 2000 for the second partner, and 3000 for the third partner activity.

Register and complete eligible activity by March 31. All activity has to post to your account by June 15, and points should post in the second half of June.

I just completed a E-rewards point move, Nadia will use her Priority Club Credit Card - that's a 1000bonus for both of us already. I'm thinking we will both buy something small at OfficeMax, shop online or dine next...

The last partner bonus offer was up to 4 partners and 10,000 miles, so this one isn’t as lucrative.

Unfortunatly the points will post right during our Europe trip but always gotta plan ahead! :)

4 night in the Bahamas, incl. Hotel & Air starting from $0.....Yeepee!

4 Nights in the Bahamas, Hotel and Air, From $0 (Yes, That’s Zero)

I’m not overly interested in the deal for myself since we have different travel plans this year, but it’s a great deal nonetheless.

I first saw it a week ago at Frugal Travel Guy and now there’s a Flyertalk thread.

The deal is this: book an Expedia vacation package to the Bahamas with a minimum four night stay using coupon code BAH400 for up to $400 off. Coupon is valid through May 10, 2010, for travel completed by December 22, 2010. March 19, 2010 through April 10, 2010 are blacked-out.

Make sure you uncheck the ground transportation box (on the 3rd page of the booking process).

There are packages from Ft. Lauderdale to Freeport, hotel and air, that price out at $0 with this coupon. From DC I’m finding $200 all-in. Of course that’s for resorts I don’t really want to stay at. But nonetheless, since there’s no minimum spend on the package, $400 off is a great deal.

Update: Dan’s Deals breaks it down with a sample from Ft. Lauderdale to Freeport, Bahamas (Nassau will work, too, but this uses especially cheap starting point and cheap hotel in Freeport to get the $0 price):

Step 1: Click on this link to Expedia Vacations.

Step 2: Type in your origin city, for this example I’ll use FLL (Fort Lauderdale)

Step 3: Type in FPO (Freeport, Bahamas) for you destination city.

Step 4: Type in your travel dates. For this example use 04/11-04/15.

Step 5: Change from the default setting of 2 adults to 1 adult and then click “search for packages.”

Step 6: Locate the $399 “Island Palm Resort” and click “Select and continue.”

Step 7: Scroll down to the bottom of the next page and click “Continue booking this package”

Step 8: Uncheck the “Roundtrip Shuttle Ground Transportation” that added $31.50 to the package.

Step 9: After unchecking that option scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “Continue booking this package”

Step 10: Sign into your account or continue as a guest.

Step 11: Enter the passenger information and then click “Proceed to booking.”

Step 12: Scroll down to the bottom of the next page and click “Accept rules and continue”

Step 13: Scroll down to the billing info and click “I have a coupon”

Step 14: Use the following coupon for $400 off and then click “Apply and Reprice”: BAH400

Step 15: The new total will be $0. You still need to enter in credit card and billing info and click “complete this booking!

Step 16: Enjoy the Bahamas!!!

If 2 people are going don't forget to repeat the process. That way both people get $400 off for a saving of $800 instead of booking for 2 and only getting the $400 offer once! :) ENJOY!!
