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.

Carlson’s May Be the Best Winter Hotel Promotion

Between January 10 and March 16, Club Carlson members can earn triple points for stays at all Radisson, Radisson Blu, Country Inn & Suites, Park Plaza, and Park Inn hotels.

Carlson’s offer is the best currently available combination of a significant bonus (triple points) with ease of earning (each and every stay, at all properties).

United Discounts Awards to Europe, Africa

MileagePlus and OnePass members can save up to 25 percent on award tickets between the U.S. and Europe or Central/South Africa booked by January 16 and completed by March 22.

Priority Club’s New Bonus: Double Points or Miles

Between January 23 and April 30, Priority Club members can earn double points or double airline miles for the second and subsequent stays at most InterContinental family hotels.

Psst, Wanna Buy American Airlines?

If Delta or US Airways were to purchase American, members of American’s AAdvantage program would find their miles significantly devalued.

What to do? Tim Winship has suggestions.
