From FrugalTravelGuy - Deals of the Day

Delta is offering 1,000 (2,000 for cardholders) miles for giving $50 to the United Way. Offer is limited to the first 5000 people so I would make sure you’re one of those before giving (if you’re just in it for the miles, that is).

Deals We Like discusses how to get Triple Southwest points (1800 WN points per Hyatt stay) instead of Hyatt points.

View From the Wing has a way to earn 2500 free US Airways miles and a hit in the Grand Slam! All you have to do is sign up for a ShareBuilder Account!

Earn 250 Delta MQMs for every two-night stay at Hilton. This can be used in addition to their Q4 promotion.

Enter to win up to $1 million at Chase Freedom’s Facebook page.

National Car is also running a Facebook contest that is giving away up to 350,000 airline miles, plus Emerald Club Executive Elite Status for one year.

Southwest is giving away up to 3 Million Points or 100 weekly points

Free and Instant Accor A-Club Platinum Status

Via Milepoint, Accor is offering instant Platinum status just for enrolling (with this HSBC promo).

Platinum status generally requires 60 nights (or 25,000 points earned) and comes with a 100% points bonus and then at Sofitel, Pullman, and MGallery hotels: room upgrades that the rules say you specifically have to ask for, 4pm late checkout, guaranteed availability, and a welcome drink and gift.

So not a bad deal and more importantly - it's FREE!
