Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: January 9 – 15, 2012

Two weeks in and there is no shortage of new bonus offers except in the flight category! Surprisingly many airlines have yet to release new flight offers for 2012, the few we added this week were subject to regional restrictions or were from the not-so-big airline frequent flyer programs. Of all the offers we added to 30 airline, hotel and rail programs this past week here are our picks of the week:
