Miles and Points Recap: New IHG PointBreaks List, Amex Hilton Card Upgrade, Daily Getaways and More!

1)Quick advice for next week of Daily Getaways promotion. First, here are the deals:

dd 4

All the offers are very YMMV. If you need to rent a car  from Avis and can save money compared to the price you found on other sites, go for it! However, check restrictions first. Personally, I would pass on this deal because there are too many “ifs” about it. For instance, the coupon is not valid in certain locations and expires on May 31st 2017.

I have bought Marriott gift cards before because I had an upcoming non-award stay in a Marriott property. So, in my case, saving 20% was a no-brainer. If you are in a similar situation, consider buying a card or two. Note that very often you can  get a discounted Marriott gift cards on Ebay or third-party reseller sites.

Circus Circus deal could be a winner under the right circumstances. I’ve heard the property is kind of dumpy, but still. For $150 you get:

  • Three (3) consecutive night stay in a standard room in the West Tower at the Circus Circus Hotel Casino in Las Vegas (double occupancy).
  • Breakfast buffet and dinner buffet for 2 people during stay.
  • A $75 voucher for The Steak House restaurant inside Circus Circus.
  • 1-day passes for two to the Adventuredome Theme Park.
  • Offer is valid through December 30, 2016. Subject to availability.

As always, I recommend you subscribe to email alerts if you are interested in a  specific deal.

2) The prophecy was fulfilled! New IHG PointBreaks list went live Monday as I predicted. Read my post on it here  Nothing super exciting, but few of my readers were able to find gems that fit their specific needs. Can’t beat that. I suggest you book soon because you can always cancel if your plans change.

3) If you happen to have a no-fee Hilton Amex credit card and are thinking about applying for Surpass version, you may be able to get a 100K points bonus via upgrade and save a hard pull. Details on Dannythedealguru blog here

4) A good post on Doctorofcredit with info on how you can view your pre-approved card offers from various banks. Definitely doesn’t hurt to check before you apply for public version.

5) If you are interested in Alaska Air co-branded credit card, check out this post on Milevalue. This is a very competitive mileage program for those who need to fly to South America, and getting their credit card is fairly easy…for now.
