Earn 1,000 American Miles Per Night Staying at Conrad: Hilton HHonors members can register for a promotion to earn 1,000 bonus American AAdvantage miles for every night they stay at Conrad Hotels & Resorts now through December 31 in addition to the HHonors points and AAdvantage miles you’d already earn with Hilton’s Double Dipping. To get the bonus, you must have American selected as your airline points and miles double dipping option, and the bonus will only be awarded on nights stayed within the promotion period, and that are booked online through a Hilton website.
Southwest 11-Day Sale: Southwest is currently in the midst of an 11-day sale that lasts until Friday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific Time. Ten-day advance purchase is required and travel must occur between September 28, 2012, and February 14, 2013. Travel is valid every day except Sunday and there are blackout dates on November 16-21, November 23-26, December 20-23 and December 26-January 2, 2013. Sample fares include Atlanta to Chicago starting at $109 each way, Denver to Los Angeles starting at $117 each way, Pittsburgh to Ft. Lauderdale starting at $135 each way, San Diego to Las Vegas starting at $76 each way and more. Fares are non-refundable and can be purchased one-way and combined with other fares.
500 Hilton HHonors Points For Liking Hampton Inn on Facebook: Now through 11:59 Pacific time on Tuesday, September 25, Hilton HHonors is giving members 500 points for liking the Hampton Inn on Facebook and watching the “Hamptonality Moments” video then sharing it with friends. Per the official rules, to participate, go to the Hamptonality Moments tab on the Hampton Page on Facebook and watch and/or share the video posted under the title “Winning Team.” Then complete the entry form and click “submit” to submit your entry. Once your participation and valid HHonors membership is confirmed, 500 HHonors Bonus Points will be credited to your HHonors account. Allow 6-8 weeks for points to appear in your HHonors account. You may watch and share the video as often as you like, but each HHonors member will receive 500 HHonors Bonus Points only one time.
Up to 25,000 Delta SkyMiles with La Quinta Inns & Suites: When you stay at any La Quinta Inns & Suites property between now and December 30, 2012, you can earn 1,000 SkyMiles for each stay, up to a total of 25,000 SkyMiles. To earn the bonus miles (250 per-stay base miles and 750 bonus) you must select Delta SkyMiles as your earning option in the La Qunita Returns points program, so you’ll only be earning miles, not La Quinta Returns points. The terms and conditions are a little stricter than usual since they define a stay as one or more consecutive nights at the same hotel even if intermittent check-in and check-outs occur, so no staying a property for three individual nights in a row by checking in and out and expecting to get three bonuses. You can also only score the bonus on one room at a time, so if you’re bringing the whole family along, register someone else with La Quinta Returns and Delta SkyMiles. Bonus miles don’t count toward Medallion status.
300 Bonus La Quinta Returns Points: Now through October 31, La Quinta Rewards is offering 300 bonus points when you watch a “Texas Travel Advisor” video, though if you just go to this link, it looks like you can just get the points anyway. You can only get the bonus once per member number. Points should post in about 72 hours.
American Airlines AAdvantage Credit Card Reduced Mileage Awards for October-December Announced: If you have a Citi AAdvantage credit card like the Platinum Select Visa or the Business AAdvantage Mastercard, you can book reduced-price awards within the 48 contiguous United States and Canada on American for 7,500 less than the airline normally charges, so a roundtrip low-level coach ticket would cost 17,500 instead of 25,000 miles and business/first would cost 42,500 instead of 50,000 miles. These awards are available to select quarterly rotating cities – you could also be saving an additional 7,500 AAdvantage miles (though you do have to pay a $25 booking fee to redeem these over the phone by calling American Airlines AAdvantage Reservations at 1-800-882-8880). You must use the code TG8X7A for coach and UG21X2A for business/first. Plus if you have a consumer Citi AAdvantage card, you get a further 10% mileage refund on award redemptions. Available cities this time around include Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Houston, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Omaha, St. Louis, Montreal, Toronto and more. Find the full list here.
