3000 American Miles for a 3-Day Avis Rental

Via TM Travel World, American is offering 3000 bonus miles for a 3-day Avis rental by using coupon code MUAA022 through December 31.
The page trumpets a discount as well but you do not need to use their discount code in order to get the miles. And the offer also provides 1000 miles on a one or two day rental.
This matches the US Airways offer of 3000 miles for a 3-day rental valid through March 31.

Of course some will prefer to just rent from National, as they’re still making their Executive status level available to anyone who signs up… UPDATE: has been pulled apparently....

250 Free Continental Miles

Through October 31 Continental is offering 250 free miles for entering your Onepass account number on a page that tells you about onboard discounts (for beverages or DirecTV).

Sometimes these free miles post, sometimes they don't....it doesn't hurt to submit....

Current Best Mileage Offer for Flowers: 30 United Miles Per Dollar from FTD

View from the Wing:
Not as good as the offer of 30 miles per dollar plus 1500 miles was, but I do try to keep track of the best mileage offers for flower orders, great for business gifts as well, FTD is offering 30 United miles per dollar at least through Setpember 30, that’s the expiration date listed on the offer I received via email from United but these FTD offer websites usually stay around long past their expiration and continue to work successfully.

Back from Kauai! :)

We're back!

Sorry for not posting for a while - we were still in our post-Kauai vacation mode. Kauai was great and our $110 flight to Lihue, Kauai was absolutely worth it. Since we saved a bunch of money by getting "free" flights with Hawaiian Airlines (how to posts can be found in blog by searching "Hawaiian" in the search box) we splurged on the St.Regis Resort in Princeville, in the north of the island, away from the crowded south shore. It also helped that we were upgraded to a oceanview room (see pic) and being able to watch sunsets from our window. I leave the exact write-up to Nadia.

I will be posting all the deals I missed the past 3 weeks shortly - stay tuned.
