145% Bonus For Purchased LifeMiles: Through November 27, 2017 you could earn an insane amount of bonus LifeMiles for all purchased miles. There are no minimums that trigger the 145% bonus. With all the excitement of LifeMiles last week, the timing of this promotion couldn’t be better.
Priority Pass Adds Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse: Priority Pass is expanding their network at a rapid pace. Their latest addition is very appealing because many rank the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse as one of the top lounges in the world. It’s also appealing because there aren’t many Priority Pass lounges at LAX, so more options is better!
Earn Elite Status with SPG for Cheap!: I love a good double dip. But triple dips and higher are even more exciting. Currently you could stack offers through credit cards, shopping portals and from the hotel loyalty program itself to score some cheap stays and earn a bunch of points. You could possibly work towards elite status if you so desire!
Get Quicker Global Entry Appointments: Many premium cards offer to reimburse you Global Entry fees which is great. What isn’t great is trying to set up an appointment for your interview. Many times your nearest Global Entry interview location is booked for months on out. There’s now a new service that will alert you when time slots open up!
More Bad News From Uber: These guys just can’t get it right! Uber had a data breach about a year ago and they kept quiet about it. Apparently Uber paid off the hackers to keep quiet about this. This is even more reason to keep a close eye on all of your accounts and your credit report.
Southwest Monkey Shuts Down: Well that was quick! A couple of weeks ago we let you guys know of a new site that would allow you to track your booked Southwest Airlines flights. The site would notify you of price drops so that you could save some money or points. Well they were forced to shut down. Bummer.
Up to 10X Shopping Through MPX: Black Friday is here and there are several opportunities to rake in a bunch of points and miles. Shopping through portals, and in this case the United Mileage Plus X app, you could earn up to 10 miles per dollar spent at select retailers. Why not take the extra step for shopping you’re going to do anyway and earn a bunch of miles.
