Another week of adding fine bonus offers to the FFB sites has come and gone. Some categories like Flights and Hotel Stays (for hotel points) had some really great offers added. What follows are my picks out of the almost 100 new bonuses posted:
Bonus Offer for Flying
I try not to use targeted offers in my picks of the week so that everyone can take advantage of them but occasionally some targeted offers come up that should be highlighted:
United Mileage Plus: Earn up to 25,000 Bonus Mileage Plus Miles on qualifying roundtrips to any destination worldwide on United or United Express® operated flights. Full Details. Until Jul 15, 12 Targeted Offer – May not work for everyone
Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
An average amount of new airline mileage bonus offers for hotel stays were added this past week but there weren’t any ‘amazing’ ones that really took the cake. Out of those added this is my pick:
Delta SkyMiles: 750 Bonus SkyMiles per stay at La Quinta properties in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Maximum bonus is 18,750 miles. Book online at La Quinta Until Dec 31, 12
Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
The decision for the pick of the week in this category was the toughest. It came down to Starwood’s newest systemwide promo and Marriott’s systemwide promo. I gave it to the latter because I feel it is more rewarding for those who are not making that many stays this summer
Marriott Rewards: Earn
a Free Night after every second
qualifying stay at any participating Marriott Hotel Worldwide.
A maximum of three free nights can be earned and then used at Category
1-4 hotels. Full
Details, online registration and booking

Bonus Offer for Driving
With only six new bonuses added to only three programs it was relatively easy to make a pick for this category:

Bonus Offer for Other Activities
There were some really good ‘other’ offers posted this week including some that provided free points but when you can get a short haul flight for as little as $35 that offer has to be picked:
Air Canada Aeroplan: Earn up to 16,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles with
the Aeroplan Star Challenge. Collect Aeroplan Stars for each transaction
at over 150 Aeroplan partners. Receive 1,500 Bonus Aeroplan miles
