Great Deal Alert: 15,000 Bonus Points at the Leipzig Marriott Hotel

I will also be mentioning this offer in my daily update but it is one of those great offers that deserves its own post. Why? Well is this one is different then some other specific Marriott offers I have posted about in that the rate for the room to earn the bonus points is actually LESS than other rates for the hotel! Usually it is the other way around where the bonus points rate is 5, 10, 50 dollars, euros, pounds more but still worthwhile if the bonus is big enough.

So what is the offer? The offer is for 15,000 Bonus Marriott Rewards points for a 2 night stay at the Leipzig Marriott Hotel in Germany. When I searched a 2 night stay, Oct 17-19 using the promo code M11 which is for the 15,000 points the rate came up at EUR109 per night. The next closest rate was the AAA rate at EUR132 and the standard rate was EUR139. So not only are you saving at least EUR23 per night you are also gaining the 15K points! I also tried November 14 -16 and once again it was cheaper than all standard rares although the non-cancelable, non-refundable, payment up front, book 21 days in advance rate was cheaper by EUR 5 per night. In that case, I would still take the bonus points rate as the return on 15,000 points is way better than the EUR10 savings and you don't have all the conditions attached to it.

Oct 17-19 Rates

Rate Rules

Nov 14-16 Rates showing the cheaper non-refundable rate


Those 15,000 points will get you a free night in a Category 3 hotel or even a point saver at a Category 4 hotel which the Leipzing Marriott is set at. So if things work out for you, you are essentially getting a free night after your 2 night stay. I'd love to know if anyone will be taking advantage of this offer, let me know below in the comments. Oh and by the way the Bonus Points rate is fully cancelable until the date of check in.

Last day to buy Avianca TACA LifeMiles with a 100% Bonus

Today is the last day to take advantage of the 100% bonus on buying LifeMiles, the frequent flyer currency of Star Alliance member Avianca TACA.

As seen in my post earlier this month when the promo launched here is why this can be a good deal:

The biggest difference this time (and part of July's) is that Avianca TACA is now a member of the Star Alliance. So while before I used to tout this offer as a way to get Lufthansa business class from North America to Europe for $1800, you can now use the miles on any Star Alliance airline. The program also offers one way rewards at exactly half the round trip cost and does not charge fuel surcharges on award tickets.



With business class tickets to Europe going for 100,000 miles and Asia for 120,000 miles you can travel 'luxuriously' for a lot less with this deal. Another great feature of LifeMiles (in fact even better than buying all the miles) is their Cash + Part Points option. This option only requires that you have 40% of the points for a reward (so buy 40% during this 100% bonus period) and then you can buy the rest of the miles (the other 60%) at $12.75 per 1,000 miles or 1.275 cents per mile!

Of course there are always caveats to promos and the one condition for this promo is that you had to be a LifeMiles member before the promotion started. If you are not a member, don't fret, while you can't take advantage of the offer this time the 100% Buy Miles promotion seems to have become a regular staple from the LifeMiles programs just like it has with US Airways Dividend Miles.

Visit LifeMiles for more details.

Bonus Offer Highlight September 26: Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

An extremely busy day kept me away from adding lots of new offers today but one really stands out and that offer is the highlight. Virgin Atlantic and Hilton are offering up bonus Flying Miles for Hilton stays worldwide, up to 15,000 bonus miles to be exact. The beauty in this promotion is that once those miles are earned you can actually convert them from Flying Club to Hilton HHonors at a 1:2 rate so the 15,000 mile bonus works out to a 30,000 HHonors Point bonus. Of course if you are Flying Club member and use the program regularily you'll want to keep the miles but for those of you who are not regular users of Flying Club and can't take advantage of any current or future HHonors promotions then this can be one way around that lack of bonuses by changing your HHonors profile to points & miles with Virgin Atlantic Flying Club set as the airline program.

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
Earn up to 15,000 Bonus Flying Club Miles for stays at any participating hotel within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio. Bonuses awarded as follows:
• 1st stay: 1,000 bonus miles
• 2nd stay: 2,000 bonus miles
• 3rd stay: 3,000 bonus miles
• 4th stay: 4,000 bonus miles
• 5th stay: 5,000 bonus miles
Bonus miles are awarded for both Fixed Miles and Variable Miles options within the HHonors program
