Miles & Points: The Week's Best Frequent Flyer Deals
Following is our regular summary of the best frequent traveler promotions reviewed during the past week.
If it was a good deal—or a notably bad deal—from an airline, hotel, or car rental loyalty program, you can read all about it here, and plan your travel accordingly.
Through February 29, 2012, AAdvantage members can book round-trip award flights to Tokyo for 50,000 miles in business class, 30,000 miles in coach.
This is a rare opportunity to visit Japan for far fewer miles.
With so many generous credit card bonuses on offer, anything less than a 50,000-mile incentive isn't going to get much traction with consumers. For a limited time, new customers for Southwest's Rapid Rewards credit card can earn just that.
Through November 15, AAdvantage members can earn double miles for flights to Santiago or Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Enter Best Western's "Fastest Way to a Free Night (and Other Things You Might Like!)" Facebook promotion by October 31 for a chance to win 100 to 100,000 points.
Somebody has to win, right?
Effective immediately, Chase Sapphire Preferred cardholders can transfer their Ultimate Rewards points 1:1 for miles in United's Mileage Plus program.
