Free Miles – American & JetBlue, Frontier Airline $19 Sale, Hyatt Joins Nepal Earthquake Relief Efforts, Free Movie tickets using Visa Signature card

1) 1000 Free AA miles for watching a video  – In an effort to help recently converted Dividend Miles members get acquainted with AAdvantage, American Airlines is holding a promotion where you can very easily earn 1,000 AAdvantage  miles. I just did it and it took only about 2 minutes. 1000 miles may not sound a whole lot but I had a few instances in the past where all I was short was a few 1000 miles to book an award ticket so 3 minutes may be well worth your effort to earn an extra 1000 miles.

Dream Destination – Hawaii

As part of the promotion you have to watch 6 videos. Each video tells you a little about AAdvantage before requiring you to answer a simple question. After completing all six videos you will have earned 1,000 AAdvantage miles and you can also enter to win the grand prize of two first class tickets to anywhere American Airlines flies.

However, you may scroll to the end of the video if you are operating in rush mode and simply answer the questions on the next page.

You can get this deal each Friday starting at 12:01 am Eastern Time and ending Saturday at 5:59 am Eastern Time, through August 21, 2015. To get your free ticket, add 2 or more tickets to your cart and the lowest priced ticket is free.

Free Miles, 60K Citibank Offer, Southwest premier Credit Card 50000points and $100 Statement Credit

1) 250 Free Virgin Atlantic Miles – If you agree to install their shopping portal toolbar “Shops Away”, Virgin will award you 250 miles for doing so. To get this offer, click this link for Shops Away and then click shop today. After logging in and hitting shop now, click Mile Finder up top to see this offer. I would install this in a browser I normally don’t use such as Firefox.

2) 100 Free Aeroplan Miles – Signup to receive emails from Home Hardware and they will give you 100 Aeroplan miles for doing so. This is the frequent flyer program for Air Canada and while 100 miles isn’t a significant amount at all, it is an easy way to reset the expiration date on the miles in your account. Make sure to use a backup email address for this (unless you actually care to receive these newsletters).

3) Citibank 60,000 Hilton HHonors Points Visa – Citibank has temporarily increased the offer on this no annual fee Hilton HHonors credit card from 40,000 to 60,000 for spending $1,000 in 4 months. This card will not be useful for many of you except for those trying to top off their Hilton HHonors balance. I will be picking this card as I need to top off my Hilton balance and also the no-annual fee aspect is appealing although I may cancel this card and re-apply in 18 months to get the sign-up bonus again.

4) Yesterday, I received an email from Southwest with the best offer I’ve ever seen on the personal Southwest card – 50,000 points + $100 statement credit. This offer is targeted however and the link I have for the card pre-populates my information in the application. However it might be possible for anyone to get this offer by phone.


From my understanding there are several different offers being promoted to Rapid Rewards members including the standard 50,000 point offer on the personal Southwest card as well as a 60,000 point offer on the Southwest Business credit card. In the comments of this post from Doctor of Credit, someone was able to successfully apply for the 60,000 point offer on the business card even though they weren’t targeted as the phone number on the application was a direct line to a department that handed this special offer.

I don’t know if this will work for this offer but the phone number listed on the application is 1-866-836-0917. Applying by phone might work to get the better offer but this is a huge YMMV situation. They might ask for an invitation number in which you try to say you accidentally deleted the email but maybe they can look up the offer for you. Do not apply for the card on the phone unless the rep confirms you are applying for the better offer which includes the statement credit.
